I don't know if anyone on here celebrates purim but it's a Jewish holiday that is dubbed by the non-religious as a "Jewish Halloween" (so not true..) anyway now that my bffls and i have been dispersed i need ideas about what to get them.... besides hamentaschen and candy  Cool I know no one gives gifts for purim but I'm weird like that

Perhaps i was a bit vague. I have one anime loving/rocker  friend who has adopted this holiday with me. My best friend (different person) is a techno- loving girl with great taste in everything. I think I'll give her a scrapbook, or, if I'm daring, something Grease themed! She also loves to cook. We and another friend (tennis champ, needs stress relievers) are Broadway buddies, so suggestions for that are great. Another friend is a musician, loves myspace, and hates being blonde. My elder sis is very girly, loves to bake and her bf, who I disapprove of, but I'll put my prejudice aside. My younger sis is also girly, loves disney channel, cartoons and how I survived middle school books, though she's not into reading. My cousin wants to be a disney imagineer. He loves comics, cartoons, videogames, and toys. He loves violence :O of any sort. He is extremely imaginative. My mother is totally stressed a lot of the time, needs a mini- vacation (suggestions?) loves mafalda comics, and is a total eighties girl. She loves queen and ccr just like i do. My aunt is a total sweetie, loves jewelry and clothes (and to spoil me) and my other cousins (canine) are very hard to craft for. One is an annoying, sweet princess who lives to annoy her broher and he is a big sheep who loves to chew. Her favorite things are kisses, his are tummy rubs. No ideas about my tech geek dad or uncle. My whole family adores disney

I'd ask for more suggestions on my grandparents and other aunts but I've ranted enough!

Well actually on Purim you are suppose to give gifts they are called mishlat manot which is a gift basket for the needy. you are required by Jewish law to give at least 2 baskets out then after that whatever. I usually give about 20 every year and its so much fun. My whole neighborhood is out delivering them Purim day in costume its a blast. The basket should have two diffrent kinds of food in it like hamentashen and candy. I'm sending a beautiful orange tower made from oranges and orange candy it kinda looks India style so i think ill wear my Sari to deliver them. Hey Purim is my favorite holiday so pm if you have more questions or about finding a Purim party close to you or just check out this sight. http://www.chabad.org/holidays/purim/default.asp?flash=true
just click the "how to" section

I know about mishloach manot. It's kind of unavoidable to know- thanks to yeshiva and my little Jewish neighborhood. I was just thinking- you know how people can give pretty much anything in there as long as there are two different brachot that you use on food that I would get very creative Wink My favorite holiday, too and I love your costume idea. I'm a queen- not surprising considering i was queen esther for four years straight as a kid Smiley

Chag sameach!

because you already made mishloach manot, I suggest you to invite
your friend and make a nice meal.
you can read the Megila and after that to chose with your friends a charity organization to help to...
