Purim Parties and Gifts
Purim is just one great festival. True, there is the Fast of Esther, but I don’t really know too many people who observe that other than the truly observant. Everyone gets busy getting their costumes ready, preparing Mishloach Manot and buying noisemakers and wine. The holiday is coming close — very very close. If you haven’t yet sent out your party invitations or bought everything you need for the party, you might find some fun suggestions here. I have put together a selection of items that are sure to make you smile.
Purim party invitations are a snap with Zazzle
All the invitations featured here are two-sided, meaning that there is a pretty or cute you-are-invited side and a side with all the details. Everything is customizable so that you can easily replace the details of your party with those that are, essentially, place-holders on the invitation templates. There are even two invitations that have matching stamps.
What To Wear To the Purim Party
Not everyone wants to dress up in a costume. There are a variety of reasons for this and no need to apologize. Perhaps a tie, hat, t-shirt or one of the novelty items will keep you in tune with the festivities in a way that feels comfortable for you. Note: the t-shirts are available in a variety of colours and styles and many of the designs are available for everyone: men, women, children and babies.
Each design is available for both boys and girls, including toddler sizes. There are a number of different styles of t-shirts and sweatshirts from which to choose. Some designs here are also available in adult sizes.
Remember, all these designs are available for both men and women. You can find a number of them in children’s sizes as well. There are many styles and colours to choose from and not just the ones I am showing you here.
Accessories Instead of a Costume
Bring Mishloach Manot to the Party – or Make Favour Boxes for Your Guests
Whether you are the guest bringing goodies to share with other guests at the party, or the party host or hostess sending your guests home with something sweet or alcoholic, you may want to use one of these special bags or boxes. Some of these designs are available in different styles of boxes and bags so you might want to check the design you like best even if it is not featured here in the size you require. For example, the colourful Purim Mask design (shown here on the wine box) comes on all 4 bag styles and in 269 products altogether!
Favours for Your Guests or a Gift for Your Host or Hostess
You may want to take something to the party that won’t just get eaten up. Or perhaps you want to send your guests home with something that will remind them of the party you threw.
Of all the products available on Zazzle, there are plenty of mugs to choose from. That is not surprising since the mug is one of the first products available on that site. Here are just of a few of the many mugs available. You might want to fill them with sweets for a terrific Mishloah Manot!
Other Drinking Mugs or Bottles
Purim is one of the holidays kids enjoy most – dressing up and performing in a Purim play is always fun. And we adults are supposed to get drunk on Purim – drunk with joy at how Mordechai and Esther saved the entire Jewish community in ancient Persia. Just make sure you are a safe drunk (sorry for the downer, but I just had to say it).
