I was wondering which Shalach manos were the cutest ones you've received or sent over the years.

I liked an apple themed one, where they sent me a green apple, apple juice, a mini apple cake and dehydrated apples, and she put the whole thing into a ceramic green apple that had a lid.

I once did a birdcage theme. Well not so much a theme as I got all these little plastic birdcages and filled them to the brim with chocolate and hamentaschen.

Then once I did flowerpots and sent seeds (edible seeds) and water (and a few more things, but I can't remember what)

Last year, I got lazy and made a tea time theme. I bought all these little teacups with a little plate under it at the dollar store, and each one got a tea bag, a bag of sugar, a bag of splenda, and a hamentaschen.

I think although the last one was kind of a cop out, it was the cutest one.


What have you sent/received over the years?

When I was a teacher I gave out to my students Sunflower Planters. I filled a small planter with chocolate cake and baked it then I crumbled bloomeos for on top. I put the gummy worms hanging out of the sides. I bought silk flowers and stuck a flower in each one and I got little tiny shovels and leaned it against the planter. it came out really cute!

I like the one, one year my mother made. A bottle of wine and over the wine she made 2 pockets. In the pockets, she made gingerbread cookies, one decorated like haman and the other like mordechai. On the pocket, she wrote the pasuk on how to drink until you can't tell the difference between the 2. Short, sweet, and to the point.

we once made ambulances out of bakery boxes & themed it "revach v'HATZALA yaamod layehudim mimakom acher"

we made big flower cookies on sticks & planted them in craft foam inside a flower pot & covered it with mike n ikes.

we did a cardiology theme (my father is a cardiologist) we got t-shirts that said thoracic park & gave heart shaped pasta & other heart healthy food. & of course brochures for our new theme park.

we dressed up as pirates & made our shalach manos in a treasure chest. edible necklaces & chocolate coins .

we did a breakfast thing & sent cereal, milk, orange juice, fresh muffins & other things I don't remember.

one erev shabbos I cooked up a huge pot of chicken soup & gave everyone containers of soup, lukshen & croutons.

last year was simple. a bottle of sparkly wine & a bar of swiss chocolate.

not a clue what to do this year though.

this came out looking a lot better than I originally thought it would, last year.

I dressed my two dds as boys in black pants, white shirts, curly peyos, and yarmulkes, and I cut a white sheet out in the shape of a tallis katan and used electric tape to put stripes on it.

for mishloach manos I bought white bags, (gift bag size--not pekelach) and also striped them with the electric tape and tied strings on the corners. everything inside was black and white (little cellophane of chocolate covered marzipan, marshmallows, etc.), and black-n-whites decorated to look like little boys, peeking out.

it looked really good, and my girls were absolutely adorable.

this year I bought monkey costumes right after halloween for a great price. I think illl do a banana package of some sort.

"Bump" means a poster is "bumping" up the thread so people will see it again in the newest posts.

I have done a few things over the years.
-I gave a plastic martini cup put in a mini bottle of gin, an olive on a tooth pick and a note with how to make a maritni
-When my Esther was born, I had to do something my husband could throw together so I did a beer mug, a beer and a bag of peanuts.
-I did a hawaiin theme and made pineapple kugels, pineapple juice and macadamia nuts.
-I made chocolate cakes inside a ice cream cake cup and put a rounded rice kripsy treat on top.
-I did a chinese theme, inside a chinese take out box I made a rice kugel, fortune cookies and a green tea.
-I have done a coffee theme, a mug with instant coffee packets, sugar packets and some brownies.
I can't remember the others. But those are pretty cool.

-ice cream sundays= in a glass sunday cup I layered popcorn and candy and put a scoop of rice crispie treat on top with a straw and a candy cherry
-cookies and milk= on a really cute cookie plate from the dollar store I put chocolate chip cookies and a chocolate milk box
-beach bag= in a beach bag I put a beach ball, a rubber ducky in a swimsuit, and a bunch of nosh in beach themed bags

This past year I had a chinese theme, bought a sushi serving set in black and red then made rumballs in the shape of sushi (covered in coconuts for the "rice" and red icing for the "salmon"), bought some chocolate covered coffee beans, made some melt-in-mouth cookies sprinkled with black and red icing and arranged those in the chinese plates that came with the sushi set. Then I bought kosher sake (rice wine) and something that was like a little tree stalk that twirled (sorry, dont know what it's called) and had leaves and set it all up on the tray part of the sushi set. It was hard work...I might have a pic somewhere at home

The year I was pregnant (in my 7th month), DH wore sweatpants and a tshirt and his terry robe over that and I wore a tshirt and a long denim skirt with my terry robe over it. I made pancakes and an apple-strawberry compote and gave that out with a small cup of maple syrup, an individual pat of butter and a bag of choko (chocolate milk).

Everyone who received it were so thankful, since they were hungry and not in the mood for the nosh that most other people give out and it was too early for Seudah.

At the risk of someone being able to identify me....


Last year we did an indigestion sort of theme.

We gave out Cholent, Tums, Pop Rocks, Fire Poppers, and a gumball called 'blow up'
with a humorous poem about the um....common stomach problems on Purim.

It was kinda gross but it was very "us". Everyone we delivered too started laughing and said, "this is so typical of you guys." Embarassed

Obviously I wouldn't recommend this theme to anyone else.
