Title says it all.
Not big into the creative, should be budget friendly, ie. cheap. Is this doable? A cute theme?
Any ideas would really be appreciated!

We are in Israel, so please have Israeli brands in mind.

Thank you so much!!!

A soup or salad with a muffin, roll or cookies on top inside a cellophane bag tied with a ribbon that coordinates with whatever your theme is or isn’t.

When I was on a shoestring budget in seminary, I made mishloach manot balloons. With more planning and just a little more $$ they could have been both whimsical and elegant, but mine were just whimsical back then. To do an adult version, Id get:

- nice balloons, probably in a semi-transparent pearly color/finish like you might see at a wedding (in sem I got regular dollar store birthday style balloons in bright opaque colors)

- confetti, or use a hole punch to make confetti

- large flake glitter and/or those little craft store gems

- fancy toothpicks

- small candy bars or other bar shaped things like in-shell nuts (walnuts)

- funnel

- ribbon

- optional helium tank (small)


Stretch the mouth of the balloon with your fingers to squeeze in food and use the funnel to add in confetti, glitter, and gems. Inflate balloon regularly using helium or your breath. Tie a ribbon around the end and tie the toothpick with a tag that says "pop me" to the other end of the ribbon. If you're using the standard balloon and gift ribbon that curls, use scissors to curl the end nicely. Otherwise cut the ends of the ribbon attractively.

If you have kids, they are great helpers for putting things in balloons!

I put in a large sparkling grape juice and bar of chocolate (wrap in pretty paper), you can add a little bag of candies in gold wrapper put into mini mesh bags hanging down from the grape juice bottle. Place it in big clear bag, wrap with pretty ribbons, or large fitted mesh bag. Looks pretty, is simple to prepare and inexpensive.
