Happy Friday Everyone! I truly hope that this week has treated you all well. If you live in a town like I do (Lakewood) Purim Fever is running rampant and the stores are packed with Mothers and their very eager kiddies scrambling to get ready for one of the most fun Jewish Holidays.
Purim is only days away and I know there are many of us who are in denial and have not even had a moment to really think about what you are going to give for Shaloch Manos this year!
So with a little help from pinterest.com I have put together a great list of some really inexpensive, easy and what I think are brilliant Shaloch Manos Ideas!
Have a great Shabbos and if you want to see some more last minute DIY costume ideas that I found – just hop on and visit my pinterest board!
Easy & Elegant Ideas:
Cake in the Bottle
Just Fill up a canning glass jar or milk bottle that you can find in any craft store or even I know in my local Shoprite Grocery they sell them as well.
Get your favorite cookie or cake recipe and fill the bottle up. Add a Sticker with directions and you have what I think is a fantastic Shaloch Manos idea

Just take a colander (you can find some really cheap ones at the Dollar store most times) and fill with a great bottle of wine, some bread or a box of Pasta, our favorite tomato sauce and maybe a small bottle of some great olive oil and you have got a simple and delicious gift idea!
