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…

10 Stunning Flowers & Bouquets for a Happy Purim (2020)

Believe it or not – there’s more to Purim than just baking a few Hamantaschen, getting a goofy costume and sending out a Mishloach Manot.

Sure, the Mitzvah does require us to send a Shalach Manot to at least one person…

But some (read: ALL) of us care about more than just a single person… and some of us (read: ALL again) tend to love some people more than others (waving to my boyfriend in the stands 👋).

How do you express that love? Whether it’s for our spouse/significant other or a beloved family member?

The answer is (hopefully) NOT “by getting them a bigger Shalach Manot” or “by getting them Hamantaschen with more chocolate inside”.

But one of the answers may certainly be: “by getting them beautiful Purim flowers.”

Now… let’s assume my boyfriend is reading this article (no pressure, darling) – what flowers do I secretly wish he’d get me for Purim?

Let’s explore that question further… shall we? 🙂
