Purim Basket Prep

The holiday of Purim is March 15. I've already gathered most of my supplies for our Shalach Manot (food gift) baskets but if you haven't, now is the time to start thinking of what to give. It's so much fun to put these together and give to friends! I love to have a theme...it makes it easier to come up with what to put inside and also gives your gift a cohesive look. 

The rules are easy:
1. Include at least two food items of ready-to-eat food or drink in your basket.
2. You are only obligated to give a food gift to one person, but you may want to make a list of recipients especially if you developed a terrific theme!

Here are a few beautiful basket ideas...
Breakfast Basket filled with homemade muffins or scones, jam, coffee and juice.
Just add ice cream box filled with cones, sprinkles and syrups.
Hikers backpack filled with snacks and a water bottle.
Italian Colander filled with pasta, sauce and olive oil.
Lunchbox filled with a juice box, chips, packaged cookies, fruit-roll ups.
Taste of the Tropics basket filled with dried fruit, coconut water, nuts.
Black and White gifts filled with licorice, salt and pepper, black beans, black and white cookie.
A Cupcake basket filled with cake mix, frosting, cupcake papers and sprinkles.

Are you inspired?
