The Jewish holiday of Purim is one of celebration for its heroine Queen Esther who helped spoil a plot to persecute the Jews. The holiday is all about celebration and people dress up in costume and share in copious amounts of food and drink. People give Mishloach manot, baskets of food to family and friends and also give meals to those in need.

Hamantaschen, a triangle shaped cookie with various fillings, named after the hat that the evil Haman wore (or so the tale goes), are a popular treat to be shared by all.

Looking to give something delicious this Purim? Here are 15 gifts perfect for just that.


One babka plus 24 hamantaschen makes the ultimate dessert spread for Purim. There is a reason why everyone loves the babka at Breads Bakery, filled with swirls of Nutella and Belgian dark chocolate.

Just like hamantaschen, kreplach are also triangular in shape, so many indulge in this traditional Jewish dish during Purim. Similar to dumplings, kreplach has a thin wrapper around a filling of meat, in this case noodle dough wrapped around brisket, chuck and short rib and caramelized onions. Eat them as is or throw them into a pot of chicken soup.

Inspired by co-founder Sam Howland’s mom’s desserts for Purim. She’d always make hamentashen, so he pulled together a strawberry hamantaschen ice cream, a Eureka lemon base with cream filled with strawberries and hamantaschen dough. She’d also make lemon poppyseed and rugelach, so he made pints of those as well. The fourth pint was inspired by her mom’s friend’s trip to Israel where she had a halvah pistachio and honey ice cream she couldn't stop raving about.
