Missed our first Mishloach Manot roundup?

What are Mishloach Manot? Mishloach Manot or Mishloach Manos are food baskets we exchange on Purim day. On the day of Purim one sends two items of food to at least one person. The Sages provide two reasons for the custom. One is to ensure that everyone has sufficient food for the Purim feast, another reason is to increase love and friendship between people. Ideally it should consistent of food that is ready to be eaten, and requires no additional preparation. 

Here are a couple of Mishloach Manot ideas to inspire you this Purim. 


Brunch at your door - keeping it rustic in a crate filled with banana walnut bread, jams and cider.

It's a wrap - Baskets, dishcloth as the wine wrapper and mason jars, it's all about how you wrap it up.

Breakfast for two - Feed them with food before they get full on the junk.  Just add ice cream - for the kids, or the kid in you.

    These are really pretty, but I thought Shalach Manos had to be "ready to eat" when you give it. In other words, an assemblage of ingredients that must be cooked wouldn't really fulfill the mitzva.
