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, or 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), is 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 make the ultimate dessert spread for Purim. There is a reason why everyone loves the babka at Breads Bakery as its filled with swirls of Nutella and Belgian dark chocolate. Don't sleep on their hamantaschen either, which features traditional fillings like Chocolate, Fig and Poppy.

Harry & David

This gift box is filled with all the treats needed to have a very happy Purim. Hamentaschen, rugelach, confetti pretzels, Jordan almonds, tropical dried fruit and more fill the lush basket, while a festive "Happy Purim" chocolate bar rounds out the gift.


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.
