The Ultimate Kosher Gift Basket for Rosh Hashanah *Giveaway*

There is something so exciting about receiving a kosher gift basket filled with unexpected (and delicious) gourmet goodies.   I am reminded of that magic Mary Poppins purse and wonder how they fit so many yummy foods in one basket and made it look so pretty!  As our thoughts turn to celebrating the Jewish holidays with family and friends and sharing our love with those who live too far away or aren’t able to join us around the table, I am reminded again why a specially made Rosh Hashanah kosher gift basket is the perfect gift to give or get right now.

Many kosher gift baskets come filled with store bought cookies and crackers and a bottle of generic Kiddush grape juice.  Now don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy opening these thoughtful gifts, but they typically get left in my pantry and forgotten or brought to work to share.  I knew there had to be a company out there that made gift baskets that I would want to keep all for myself!  That’s when I discovered Manhattan Fruitier, a 25 year old gift basket company offering kosher gift baskets filled with a combination of fresh fruit and gourmet goodies with a sense of style that will make Martha Stewart jealous.

Manhattan Fruitier takes pride in an attractive and elegant presentation and sourcing the kinds of products that you don’t find at the local gift shop.

They sent me a Kosher Honey Basket (these are my pictures above so you can see it really is that beautiful) this week and they must have known that I’ve got a special place in my heart for nougat.  The basket was filled with gorgeous fresh and delicious fruit (including an Asian pear, pomegranate, a perfectly juicy plum and much more), a jar of kosher honey from the Catskills and a package of sinfully sweet nougat!!!  My kids were literally buzzing with excitement over the contents in this gift basket and I suppose I may even have to share my nougat after all!

I love that Manhattan Fruitier offers healthy and elegant fruit baskets and that they dressed up their kosher fruit baskets special for Rosh Hashanah by adding locally farmed honey and honey nougat.  They also offer the Bee’s Knees, a combination of fresh fruit, honey and peanut butter toasted in vintage coffee roasters with just a pinch of sea salt or The Rugelach Nosher which includes a decadent assortment of hand rolled rugelach prepared with the freshest preserves, plump raisins, crushed walnuts, cinnamon and spices in a rich butter and cream cheese pastry dough.

Whether you are looking for a pretty, healthy centerpiece for your own table or the ultimate hostess gift, check out Manhattan Fruitier’s kosher gift baskets.  USE CODE JOYKOSHER TO GET 15% OFF (through September 4th)!

You can also win one here on JoyofKosher!  Prize basket is valued at $77, enter with Rafflecopter below.   The giveaway will run through September 2nd and contacted on the 3rd.  We will do our best to get the basket out in time for Rosh Hashanah.

Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only (except for Hawaii, Alaska, and Arizona).  If the winner is located in NYC, they will receive the above basket, otherwise, they will receive a closed basket with most of the same goodies.
