We love a great mishloach manot theme as much as the next guy, but sometimes the ones that are most practical and thoughtful take the cake. This year Purim falls out right before Shabbat, so what better theme than Shabbat itself? Especially when so much of our focus goes into planning Purim, a little help with Shabbat is something most of us can really use!
There are so many wonderful and easy things you can include that are store-bought for this theme, but adding a few homemade items like the ones we’ve gathered below will make it even more special and meaningful!
We’ve rounded up what we think are quintessential Shabbat foods that are easy to package and are sure to be appreciated by your friends and family.
Happy Purim and Shabbat Shalom!
