I’m a very ‘just in case’ type of person. I always pack extra things ‘just in case’, buy things ‘just in case’ and I’m always on look out for ideas and inspirations ‘just in case’. Even though I don’t really have any special event, party or occasion to plan for, I totally imagine it in my head as I checkout party planning websites and browse through party favors magazines.
Since I do that all the time, I was thinking that I should share my ideas and thoughts with you people out there, especially since Purim is just around the corner. Mishloach Manot giving is a big deal, you know it and although you don’t want to, admit it! Buying the Purim gifts may be a hassle for some but when you have a place to do all your Purim shopping, it really shouldn’t be.
Firstly, Oh! Nuts offers it all. It’s the one-stop-shop website where you will find Purim novelty toys, Purim candy, nuts, dried fruit, chocolates and Purim gift boxes. Too lazy, tired, impatient, busy or overwhelmed? Oh! Nuts is your answer! We ship most of our baskets nationwide in a professional and reliable manner. Now back to Purim basket themes! Even if you make your own gifts, here are some ideas:
The Spongebob Squarepants Purim Theme is really cute. Dress your kid/s up in yellow pants and shirt and get a spongebob mask to go with it. Your Mishloach Manos can consist of yellow candy (see Oh! Nuts section of Yellow Themed Candy and Chocolate) as well as spongebob color-a-cookie, spongebob large lollipops and yellow flowers.
The Dog/Puppy/Animal Purim Theme seems to be popular this year. We offer animal candy lollipops, animal chocolate lollipops and licorice scottie dogs. Our newest item that we offer is Color-A-Cookie and we have Blues Clues and Scooby Doo for the dog theme as well as Winne-the-Pooh!
Firefighter/Fireman Purim Theme: this theme is very cute and fun to plan for. Some ideas for Mishloach Manos are Quick Blast Fireman Candy Spray, Fireman candy, cinnamon lava balls (hot n spicy), red colored candy like Jordan almonds, jelly beans, licorice and hard candy or soft candy. A fireman suit and helmet from a cheap party website or party supply store completes your fireman theme!
Baby/Kid Purim Theme - with the saying ‘tinok shel bais raban’ you can work alot with this theme! Get a bassinet basket and fill with a cute, plush teddy bear, milk chocolate booties, pacifier coated candy, pacifier twisted candy and baby flash pop as well as a bottle of water or grape juice!
For some reason, kids love dressing up as babies with the bibs and pacifiers so you shouldn’t have a problem with costumes!!
Ocean/Sea Purim Theme- Your Mishloach manos can be so classy with the ocean theme of blue and whites. For example items such as milk chocolate fish, jelly fish, bubble monsters, jelly dolphins gummies, shark squirter candy and fish candy toy fill your basket.
That’s for now but watch for more Purim Mishloach Manot ideas!
