I like to give food people can eat at their seuda, which takes away from creativity. But at least I want to have fun with the packagin! I usually end up sending baked goods, but this year I want to do something like a salad and a cooked dish. Any ideas for an elegant presentation?
Trying to get an early start in case I want to order from aliexpress...

I once gave sliced colorful peppers, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes in a clear plastic sectional container, with a tiny container of dressing/dip and a pack of Melba toast crackers. I set it up in the sections in a neat packed way, put a pretty napkin folded under the section with Melba toast and dip. I tied it with a ribbon and put on a card. Wasn’t elegant but was real food wrapped neat and presentable.
This year I’m tjinking of doing the salad in a mason jar idea with a tiny container of croutons on top tied with a ribbon

hamentash knishes you can stack and put a ribbon around it or get containers where they can stand next to each other.

Ask your LOR because this is something different Rabbonim will hold differently on.

My sister was told to tovel them, wash them, drink out of them, wash them again and only then fill them...

Avocado, large tomato, cucumber, can of hearts of palm, dressing in plastic container from Amazing savings, with recipe card.

kugels and desert chocaltes or mints, stacked

Lunch food, like pitas and cheese, or rolls and cold cuts

Dips and salads in disposable stacked containers, make pretty colors: tomato dip, onion spread, cucumber salad, eggplant dip - red, yellow, green, purple.

Bake mini kugels in those cardboard pans. Like these, but loaf pans.

Homemade applesauce or compote in a mason jar. You can layer applesauce with cherries or strawberries.

No idea, I gave a whole range of sizes and designs available here in Israel, I just searched for a similar thing. You can match how many oz it holds.
I didn't even look at the size.
The big advantage is that you could put a real lot in your oven at once with the cupcake size. I think I've done about 40-50. On a baking sheet to make it easier.

Maybe I'll do that this year, veggie sticks in a plastic container with my yearly carrot kugel on top inside a cellphone bag with a ribbon.

Between allergies, kashrus, different tastes, toiveling or not... THis is quite complicated. Especially since most people already have their mishte lined up/going somewhere.
