Some people have a theme to their Mishloach Manos. Is there any source that discusses Mishloach Manos themes, either pro or con?

  • can you give an example? – Clint Eastwood Feb 26 '14 at 20:31
  • Some people dress their kids in matching clothes on shabbos and yom tov. Some people have bar/bat mitzvah themes. I'm sure we cam make a long list. – user6591 Jan 29 '17 at 18:38
  • Do you have any reason to think that thematic rather than non-thematic gifts are Judaism dependent, or that Judaism would have an opinion about this? – mevaqesh Feb 28 '17 at 23:08

Not sure what you mean by pros and cons. But I can tell you that people these days take the whole mishloach manot "creativity competition" a bit too far and get stressed over it for nothing.

I wrote an article about some popular Mishloach Manot themes and ideas.

The "main" themes of Mishloach manot are catered towards people's likes. I for example love tea, so I would be happy to get a tea themed mishloach manot.

But don't feel obligated to stuff the mishloach manot with junk. For example, a classy "made in Israel" gift box with a bottle of wine and olive oil is a wonderful mishloach manot gift IMO (see the made in Israel section in the article above)
