I think it’s November. The weather the past week or two haven’t been indicative of the time of year we are currently in, but my calendar says November, which means Holiday season is around the corner.
Thanksgiving is earlier than usual this year, which means we need to start compiling our lists already. All those people that we need to send Holiday Gifts to as an expression of our appreciation. As a kosher consumer, I need to send a holiday gift basket that is kosher but doesn’t compromise on style or function. Kosher has come so far over the years, the stereotypical kosher gift package has been archived in the annals of history. Even for our customers that don’t eat strictly kosher themselves, sending a kosher gift basket ensures that all the recipients of your largesse will be able to partake. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated!
Only Kosher Candy (www.onlykoshercandy.com) has rolled out their 2015 lineup of Kosher Gift Baskets, and it is worthy of strutting down the gift basket catwalks of the world.
Whether you need to dazzle your big clients, show appreciation to your staff, or send that obligatory gift basket to your bank you will find something for everyone at Only Kosher Candy.
My personal favorite is the Chocolate Inspiration

I grew up with this ditty and now my kids are coming home singing it too:
“Dip the apple, in the honey, make a bracha loud and clear. L’Shana Tova Umetukah, Have a happy sweet new year!”
What is the significance of honey? What is the significance of an apple? Nothing in Judaism is “just because”. Every tradition has been honored through the generations and has deep meaning. We eat sweet foods to express our fervent desire that the new year should be sweet with goodness and happiness. We customarily refrain from sharp, bitter and sour foods to keep this theme of sweetness at the fore. The reason we specifically use the apple is quite deep and esoteric and a number of interesting reasons are brought down on Aish.com’s website (http://www.aish.com/h/hh/rh/guide/Apples_and_Honey.html)
Here at Only Kosher Candy (www.onlykoshercandy.com) we take the business of apples and honey very seriously. Wishing family and friends a happy Jewish new year shows our loved ones that we value our relationship and wish them only future goodness and happiness. This is portrayed with our selection of sweet holiday gift packages. I will highlight a few here in this blog, please visit our website for a full listing of Rosh Hashana gift baskets.
The Apple Shaped Honey Basket is only $21.50 and includes a gold filigree apple shaped basket filled with artisan honey from Savannah Bee. The filler candies are honey flavored chewy salt water taffies. A truly tasteful and appropriate way to wish Happy New Year.
If you’re more of a country style person then this next gift basket is for you.

For centuries, Jews around the world, have been celebrating the holiday of Purim with the important law of giving a gift of 2 prepared food items to a friend. Giving fosters love, and how appropriate it is in today’s times to spread the love.
Most people I know give more than 2 foods and their recipient list is definitely longer than just 1 recipient. In the small world that we live in, family members and friends live across the country and around the globe. While delivering Mishloach Manos to all our loved ones in person is an impossible feat, sending a Purim Gift Basket is made easier with Only Kosher Candy (www.onlykoshercandy.com)
Our teachers and Rabbis are traditionally given a more honorable, costly Mishloach Manos, while our children’s friends are happy with a small treat. Our own friends fall somewhere in the middle. Being intimately familiar with the needs of our customers, Only Kosher Candy has put together a 2014 Purim Gift Basket collection that is original and breathtaking. Catering to all budgets, tastes, styles and preferences, there is something for everyone.
I will highlight a couple of items here.
My personal favorite is the TAG Viva Water Carafe filled with a fresh selection of dried fruits or nuts. I love the fact that it’s not another cardboard box to throw away when the day is over. This ingenious water carafe is leak proof and stylish. Crafted in Scandinavia, it’s sleek design and functionality make a showstopping impression.
Priced at only $36, this is a budget conscious decision, noting that the carafe itself retails for over $20.
My next spotlight is on a simple chic design that is eye catching in it’s color coordination and layout.
This reptile print platter is another reusable item that you or your recipient will enjoy for many seasons to come. Priced at $22.50, you CAN make a statement without breaking the bank. Containing the most exciting kosher candies currently on the market, the content is as discriminating as the presentation!
Giving to the kids’ friends is always a challenge. They each want to give to a number of friends and depending on your family size things can easily get out of hand. Here are 3 ideas that will take your budget and your children’s excitement into account. The Purim Purse and the Purim Candy Kit are only $1.85 and $2.10 respectively and will delight your little ones’ recipients.
For your older kids, the Hot Cholocate box is sure to amaze. This cardboard box with viewing window is filled with hot chocolate paraphernalia and sweets.
So that’s a small preview of what’s in store at www.OnlyKosherCandy.com for Purim 2014. Don’t wait for the last minute, have your Purim orders out of the way so that you can focus on the other excitements of the day. What are your kids dressing up as???
