30+ Classy Mishloach Manot Ideas, Gift Baskets & Gifts for Purim (2020)

What’s your favorite part of Purim?

Usually, there are three possible answers to that question:

  1. Send/receive Mishloach Manot baskets
  2. Dress up in cool Purim costumes
  3. Send/receive Purim baskets while dressing up in cool Purim costumes

Hmm… it seems that there’s only one answer after all…

In Purim, we give Mishloach Manot as a sign of friendship, unity, and care to the people around us. Every Jew is required to send a Shalach Manot to at least one person.

Luckily – most of us care about more than just a single person (I hope)… so more often than not we end up sending several Shalach Manot to the people we love.

Therein lies the secret of this special Mitzvah: the more we give ⇒ the happier we get.

It’s a beautiful cycle: one filled with love, joy and caring.

And in this guide, we’re going to kickstart the cycle with the best Mishloach Manot & Purim gift ideas we can give to our family, friends and loved ones…
