In his Hilchos Megillah, the Rambam writes which of the mitzvos of Purim one should focus on.
The Rambam writes in Hilchos Megillah, Perek 2, Halacha 17: “It is preferable for a person to increase his Matanos L’evyonim than to be lavish in his Purim feast or in Shaloch Manos. For there is no greater and more splendid happiness than to gladden the hearts of the poor, the orphans, the widows, and the converts.”
