    My kids and husband are all dressing up like old men this year and i’m thinking of ideas for matching mishloach manot.

    I was thinking along the lines of winkies in a pill box, candy canes(although i dunno if i can find them in Israel), and gummies in the shape of teeth. Any other ideas to help make this cute?

    Old people don’t do themes. So don’t do a theme, but don’t use anything very new. A straw basket and poppy seed hamantashen with wine is good.

    Agree with RebYidd23. Do an old-fashioned basket.

    I heard of someone who dressed up the fam as old ppl and bought containers in the shape of a cane (i would assume she got them around xmas time) and placed some candy canes in it etc and wrote “CANE tiyeh lanu”. thought it was cute. (i like twinkies idea.)

    I’m so sorry, mominjerusalem, to join in the fun you started with something negative. But you’re a Jewish Mom with adorable kinderlach and I can’t help feeling that maternal instinct kick in to take care of all of you!

    Please never ever use winkies in a mishloach manos as pretend pills. Never ever refer to them (as people did in the Dark Ages when I was little) as “aspirin candy”. Children should never see candy or sweets placed in a pill box. As it is, pills are colorful and the shape reminds kids of candy, without our encouragement. Even with the most careful mother keeping all medicines safely stowed in an inaccessible medicine cabinet, those cunning, creative little ones can find their way to your pill bottles. They must be taught as early as possible that medicine can be very dangerous. Any resemblance or reference to candy should be strictly avoided.

    Hope you all enjoy a great simchadik Purim!

    Wow, I didn’t even think of that! Thank you so much for that! I really appreciate you bringing that to my attention!

    Tizku Limitzvos! Purim Sameach!

    (Still open for ideas everyone!)
