What’s your favorite part of Purim?
Usually, there are three possible answers to that question:
- Send/receive Mishloach Manot baskets
- Dressing up in cool Purim costumes
- Send/receive Purim baskets while dressing up in cool Purim costumes
(Hmm… it seems there’s only one answer after all.)
Purim is all about celebrating the love, friendships, and joy in our lives… It’s a reminder to NEVER take these things for granted.
That’s precisely the secret of the Mitzvah of Mishloach Manot: when we give gifts – we spread love, create friendships and make the other person happy.
And that’s exactly why I wrote this article: to help people spread joy on Purim with these Mishloach Manot ideas & Purim gifts, and celebrate Purim the way it should be celebrated!

Top Purim Baskets & Gifts
Before we go over each & every Purim gift basket (and before you start drooling all over the keyboard), let’s have a quick glance at the very best Mishloach Manot baskets and gifts you’ll find in this article.
Traditional Mishloach Manot Baskets
Let’s start off with some of the most popular & traditional Mishloach Manot basket ideas.
Most Purim gift baskets you’ll see in here include chocolates & treats.
Because let’s face it – who doesn’t love treats?!
Purim Shalach Manos “The Everything” Wooden Gift TrayTop Traditional Gift Basket
You should think outside the box… Because we need the room in the box for all these delicious Purim treats.
Hamantaschen, bonbons, gourmet roasted nuts + other delicious sweets…
AND…a Voss water bottle(!).
All this Purim goodness arrayed within rustic-wood compartments in this beautiful wooden gift tray.
A stylish, delicious and memorable gift basket.
Shalach Manos Mosaic Stainless Steel Purim Platter
Ever heard the saying “served on a silver platter”?
Well, why serve something on a silver platter if you can serve it on a gold platter?
This gorgeous, stainless-steel, gold Shalach Manot Purim platter is filled with delicious Hamantaschen, chocolate bonbons, and roasted nuts.
So if you’re headed to a Purim feast, take this platter with you. You’ll be treated like Mordechai and be put on a horse.
Shalach Manot Platinum Jerusalem Wash Cup & Towel Set Purim Gift Basket
This section is called “traditional Mishloach Manot baskets” for a reason.
This gorgeous Shalacht Manot basket goes well beyond simply sweets and snacks. Besides the delicious Purim treats, which includes gourmet chocolate truffles, roasted nuts, and chocolate coated pretzels, you also get a Netilas Yadayim set (washing cup and embroidered towel).
Purim is one day of the year, but we do Netilas Yadayim every day… So if you prefer sending a Shalach Manos gift that’s also useful – then this might be the gift basket you’re looking for.
Unique & Creative Mishloach Manot
Mishloach Manot baskets can be more than a bunch of chocolates and candy in a wicker basket. For us creative souls, it’s another chance to experiment with our wild ideas – and prove to our friends & family once again that normal = boring.

Do you have a farmer’s costume?
Too bad, because if you’ll arrive at the Purim party with this cool farm-themed wooden wheelbarrow, filled with sweet and salty goodies in the back, people will start asking questions.

Broadway Basketeers Towering Heights Kosher Gourmet Gift Tower
Imagine sending your friends & family a tower of Shalach Manot, filled with delicious chocolates, snacks, sweets, cookies & nuts.
You probably wouldn’t fit through the door carrying this, but rest assured – whoever gets your Mishloach Manot will remember it for years.
And it’s NOT your typical, boring chocolate either: it’s a tower filled with (among other things):
- Lindt Truffles
- Milk chocolate Bavarian pretzels
- Blueberry-Greek Yogurt cookies
- Double-Dipped chocolate peanuts
- Milk toffees
- Chocolate chip cookies
- …and many others!
You get all this greatness for a ridiculously cheap price. I know I would love to get it for Purim (hint).
Milk Chocolate Candy Pieces Chocolate Lovers Popcorn Pizza
Now you’re probably thinking: “WTF? A pizza box? Are you crazy?”
Well, maybe a little… But stay with me.
Imagine someone handing you a nice little Mishloach Manot gift basket, and you giving a pizza box in return. Little do they know that this isn’t just a regular pizza box…
Once they’ll open the pizza box, they’ll discover a gourmet candy pizza with a milk chocolate crust, popcorn “cheese”, pretzel and chocolate candy pieces (M&M’s style) topping with chocolate drizzled on top.
Now tell me who wouldn’t want to get this delicious kosher treat in a (pizza) box. I’m warning you though, this can get “viral” pretty quick, and soon enough people will ask you where you got it and how you even thought about it. When you do, send em’ to me.

Kosher Chocolate Gift Baskets
Most traditional Purim gift baskets include many different treats: Hamantaschen, candy, chocolates…
But have you ever witnessed a chocolate addict “handle” a traditional Shalach Manot?
They skip all the nonsense and go straight to the chocolate, and they don’t look back…
If that sounds like someone you know… then you better just give them what they want: chocolates… lots of chocolates.
Chocolate Oreo Cookies Gifts BoxTop Chocolate Gift Basket
I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t love Oreo cookies. But giving someone Oreos for Purim seems quite inappropriate, don’t you think?
The solution? A bestselling, gourmet chocolate-covered Oreo sandwich cookies – wrapped in an elegant gift box.
Bonus: You can even personalize the box to make it even more meaningful.
This classy gift comes with 12 different Yummy flavors, all handcrafted from premium chocolate, nuts, and toppings.
And it’s not just the flavors that are outstanding – the presentation is simply world-class. Kind of makes you want to not ruin the presentation (but you won’t be able to resist eating it, so screw the presentation).

This gift basket is meant to impress. It’s obviously not for everyone. But if you’re looking to dazzle someone with love (and treats) – then this is precisely the gift basket you should send.
P.S – It comes in a reusable Palm Leaf Load basket.
Healthy Mishloach Manot Baskets
There’s no need to visit the dentist after Purim.
Truth is, there are a lot of healthy Mishloach Manot baskets you can enjoy, without having to ruin your teeth in the process.
I’m here to show you that with a little willpower and the right choice of gift baskets, you can send someone a delightful gift basket that is both delicious & healthy.
12 Variety Nuts in a Modern Wood Gift TrayTop Healthy Gift Basket
If you’d rather your recipient doesn’t blame you for all the weight they gained on Purim, then you might want to consider a healthier alternative. This Mishloach Manot gift basket is ideal for someone on a diet, or someone who would rather NOT enter a new diet after Purim.
Fully packed with a huge variety of all-natural, gluten-free, protein-rich nuts & snacks, namely:
- Mixed nuts
- Raw walnuts
Tip: This gift basket is great for people on all sorts of special diets: vegans, diabetics, paleo diet, or almost any diet under the sun.
Plus, it’s a MASSIVE git basket no one can finish on their own…which means they’ll be able to enjoy it for more than a single day, and they’ll likely share it with their family & friends.
Holiday Delight Gluten-Free Gift Tower
Usually, snacks can be one of two things: they can either be tasty, or healthy.
Doesn’t matter how much money McDonald’s spend on advertising trying to convince us that their burgers are healthy… they’re just not (not that McDonald’s is Kosher, but that’s another story).
In rare occasions, someone comes along with something tasty AND healthy.
And when that happens – it deserves a few words of praise.
Broadway Basketeers found that winning balance in their huge, Kosher gift tower. Not only is it gluten-free, but its also wheat-free, dairy-free, and of course Kosher.
Finally – there’s a totally guilt-free kosher gift basket for Purim.
If you’re “targeting” your Mishloach Manot gift basket to someone on a diet, then this is the gift basket you were probably looking for.
Over 2 pounds of hand-selected, fresh & delicious nuts, including:
- Roasted salted macadamia nuts
- Mixed nuts
- Raw walnuts
- Honey glazed pecans
This deluxe gift basket is a best seller in Amazon’s Bakery & Dessert Gifts category, so there’s no way you can go wrong with this one.
Cheese and Nuts Delight Fruit Basket
Fruit is always a great option for people who don’t want to ruin their diet. Being on a diet doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy their Shalach Manot. Want to prove it to them?
Get them this delicious, fruity & cheesy gift basket. In fact, consider sending this to your friends & family who aren’t on a diet… it’s just that good (and healthy).
Cheap Purim Gift Baskets
The Mitzvah of Mishloach Manot is about giving, but nowhere does it say you have to go bankrupt when you send out a gift basket to your loved ones. In fact, Halakha clearly states we should send at least two items of food to at least one person.
Now you’d probably want to send more than just two pieces (to avoid being called a cheapskate and all)… In fact, you can send out lovely Purim gift baskets for a very reasonable price, as you’ll about to discover here.
Purple Concord Mishloach Manos Gift BasketTop Cheap Gift Basket
This cute Mishloach Manot gift basket is a prime example of a lovely way to send someone you love an impressive, yet affordable Purim gift box.
The box contains a bottle of Kiddush grape juice, 2 Hamantaschen, sweet chocolate pops and a swiss fruit bonbons.
A yummy little Mishloach Manot box you can send to many of your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, teachers, your neighbor’s teachers (you get the point), without breaking the bank.
Assorted Nuts Gift Basket
If you’re looking for a risk-free, healthy and cheap Purim gift basket, then this one checks all three.
The six-section assisted nut gift basket is filled with roasted salted cashews, pistachios & nuts, raw walnuts, honey glazed pecans and smoked almonds.
Note: Also rated as a top holiday corporate gift basket.
Broadway Basketeers Chocolate & Nut Gift Tray
Broadway Basketeers have already made several appearances in this article.
The thing about their Kosher gift baskets, is that most of them are incredibly cheap, considering the size of their baskets and the portions included.
I could’ve easily fit all of their baskets in the “affordable gift baskets” section, but that wouldn’t be fair to the other baskets (we wouldn’t want to hurt the chocolate’s feelings, now do we?).
After careful consideration, I decided that their chocolate & nut gift tray deserved a special spot in this section.
The gift tray includes:
- Milk + Dark chocolate Bavarian pretzels
- Milk + Dark chocolate covered Graham crackers
- Gourmet caramel popcorn
- Yogurt enrobed peanuts
- Assorted milk toffees
- Crème Brulee mix
- Mint sweets
Once again, a very generous amount of treats, for a surprisingly low price.
Gift Baskets for Coffee & Tea Lovers
We finally arrived at my favorite Mishloach Manot theme: coffee & tea gift baskets!
As a coffee & tea junkie, I would personally LOVE to get any of these gift baskets (hint).
And as a secret member of the coffee & tea addicts group (oops), I can tell you that anyone in my (secret) group will feel the same.
So here goes… (I’m drooling all over my keyboard)
Art of Appreciation Gift Baskets Tea Lovers Care Package Gift BoxTop Tea Gift Basket
It’s tea time – and we stay with the art of appreciation… This is the exact care package – but this time for tea lovers.
Packed with a special & endless collection of every tea-lover’s brewed dream. The huge list of elegant tea (again, endless list, no room to mention it here) is complemented with the “right” kind of gourmet snacks that will indulge the tea lover in his wonderful addiction (which I happen to share)…

It’s called “Coffee Lovers Care Package” – because any coffee addict will appreciate what he’s getting here, and realize how much you care for him and his coffee addiction – and that’s what Purim is all about.
Mini Cube Variety Tea Gift Pack
Just because I’m a huge tea fanatic, I’ll finish off with a “made in Israel” premium tea gift box.
This unique cube package holds a mesh tea sachet that is bursting with the bold taste of whole leaf tea, fine herbs, and spices.
And like I said, it’s made in Israel, so that deserves some extra bonus points right there.
Mishloach Manot (Send to Israel)
You couldn’t spend Purim in Israel this year… oh well, don’t beat yourself up about it. Purim isn’t a big holiday after all.
But here’s the good news: you don’t have to physically be in Israel in order to send Mishloach Manot baskets to your family & friends in Israel!
Purim Salad Dish Gift Basket (Israel Only)Top Mishloach Manot in Israel
Your family & friends over in Israel will love to get this stylish salad bowl, made especially for the Purim feast table.
Especially because the salad bowl doesn’t exactly come with salad…
It comes with a large bottle of white wine, serving pieces, and most importantly: amazing Swiss milk chocolate, a tin cookie box with cookies, a canister with candies and milk toffees.
Now that’s a happy Purim…

Purim isn’t just about Mishloach Manot. Sure, there’s a Mitzvah to send food gifts, but then there’s also a Mitzvah to have a feast on Purim.
