    so last year i created this really cute mishloach manos for my teacher, thanking her for time to listen to all of my q’s and for helping me grow. I don’t want 2 say what I did because I don’t want it to be too obvious…so does anyone have any cute and original ideas that I could do this year for a different teacher of mine who is the most amazing person in this entire world? she is my mentor. I want to do a theme with a cute little quote to connect to it. I also want to give a gift to connect with it. Something like this but this is too cheapish: *Thank you for your time, and give her a clock* type of thing.


    A check. Your theme can be zeros. The quote can be,

    “You’ve given me love, patience and time,

    So I’m giving you gelt, with a poem that does rhyme.”


    Sorry about that. My mishloach manos usually consists of a hamantash and pickle, taken off the table by the seudah, and passed around the table by everyone who didn’t give yet and was in the proper state of mind to be passing things (not that i was ;-). I didn’t have time to write a poem for it, so I never got a feel for a good and original mishloach manos. (Actually, the pickles were original. Flaums Original!)


    You could put some of those winkie watches that they have. If they still have them around. They had them around a long time ago. Not sure if they are still around though. So yeah.


    thank you for responses! I was thinking more of something like this: “Thank you for helping me grow” and give her flowers…..except she deserves more than just flowers and flowers are really lame (in my opinion…)


    smile, the flower/grow theme is really cute! My sister once did a similar m”m; she made a whole candy garden – covered a box with green tissue paper, and stuck in all types of lollies/big lolly pops etc. for flowers, bushes and trees. She made stones out of some candy leading up to a chocolate house which was filled with homemade cookies. She made a stream out of blue licorice. It looked GORGEOUS! Don’t know how much time you want to spend on this though….


    U could also make a gingerbread house and have gingerbread Hamamtash inside it


    How about some bratwurst and say have you ever had any brats worse then me?? just kidding smile.


    Unless the school is organizing the mishaloch manos, I think it is a bad idea for individual students to give gifts to teachers. It can potentially lead to teachers favoring certain pupils.


    You can get her a nice bottle of bourbon. “You give me wings to fly”, can be your caption. On the flower theme, how about three bottles of Four Roses? You’ll give her a dozen roses!

    Rema711: gingerbread hamantashen?!?


    yayin yashan bkli chadash gingerbread hamantashen are great cure for drinking to much snapps on Purim they help relieve the the Purim Affect also it helps u to not vomit from alcohol intoxication!!!!


    Rema711: you’re gonna have to send me some.


    yayin yashan bkli chadash what’s ur address I will send it to u


    You can get your teacher a hamantash and a bottle of strong wine, with the caption “Tall as an eagle that is 9 inches tall”.


    Not a chance the moderators will let that. You’re from Brooklyn?


    yayin yashan bkli chadash I am spiritually from Brooklyn


    Rema711:And physically? I am one of those stereotypical Brooklyners that can’t imagine that anyone comes from anywhere but Brooklyn or lakewood. Widen my horizons, please. Btw why don’t you post the recipe for gingerbread hamantashen letovas harabbim?

    Smile, I wonder if know how lucky you are to have a teacher like that, that you can ask all of your questions to. I just had a really bad experience with a teacher of mine (after I asked a question abt Judaism) and… Gosh you’re so lucky.


    I am from Chicago, here is the recipe :

    For the cookie dough:

    2 cups whole wheat flour

    1 cup all purpose flour plus more fore dusting

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/4 teaspoon freshly milled black pepper

    8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted margarine, room temperature

    1/4 cup vegetable shortening, at room temperature

    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

    2/3 cup unsulfured molasses

    1 large egg

    For the filling:

    6 tablespoons margarine, cut in 1-inch pieces

    1/2 vanilla bean, cut lengthwise and scraped of seeds

    3 large or 4 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths

    1/4 cup brown sugar, packed


    Letakein Girl, B”H I have a mentor. I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience with your teacher. I highly and strongly recommend that you find a different teacher whom you can turn to to ask your questions. Maybe try a teacher that you had last year? Its crucial for a girl to have someone to talk to because we need our questions to be answered. Its hard to go through the day when you have a question on your mind that you need an answer to. Hatzlacha! 🙂

    Thanks, smile.


    Chicago is actually one of the beautiful communities i was zoche to visit (for a simchah), and i loved it! Nicest people. Thnx for the recipe!


    yayin yashan bkli chadash did u try the deep dish pizza


    so…any other cool ideas?


    smile101 so…any other cool ideas?

    The best Mishloach Manos Idea For Teachers is getting them a bottle of saki and a California Roll


    I have an awesome recipe:

    1. a wicker basket with a bow on top

    2. bottle of wine

    3. cake

    4. car

    5. cupful of crushed walnuts (optional)

    Carefully back the car over the basket. You may have to do this a few times before it’s properly crushed. Next, take the remaining ingredients and hand them to your teacher.


    For my childrens teachers, whom I also really appreciate, I am planning to give a gift certificate.

    I want them to be able to buy something they want.

    I feel like money is not personal enough, but a gift is too personal.

    I think more important than the Mishloach Manos is a nice card.


    I’d do some private eye work to see what food she likes and work from there.


    so…its almost purim and I really need an idea ASAP!!!!!! i want to thank this individual for her time, care and concern and for helping me become the person who I am today!
