Gift giving is an art. It’s so hard to get it quite right. The great thing about Purim is that, unlike every other gift-giving occasion, we don’t have to rack our brains trying to figure out the perfect present for a long list of loved ones. As the holiday dictates, we have the fun, festive, and delicious custom of delivering food gifts to everyone. Unlike gifts of the non-edible variety, these (sometimes) homemade treats are perfectly suited, to so many people, all at once. 

I am sharing with you some of my favorite sweet treats – perfect for Purim and as edible gifts for occasions year-round. (Think: welcome-to-the-neighborhood-gift or teacher-appreciation-gift or hostess-thank-you-gift.) 

A freilichen (zissen) Purim!Happy (sweet) Purim!

Cookie treats: For a “healthful” twist, go with my Green Tea Cookies. (Ground green tea leaves have 100 times more antioxidants than a cup of green tea!)
