Sukkot – the holiday where we leave our cushy home and dwell for 7 days in a Sukkah (don’t worry, you’re still allowed inside the house during that time… unless you did something naughty).
We eat, sleep and decorate our Sukkah for the Jewish feast of Tabernacles (or the feast of booths) – just as our Jewish forefathers did during the Exodus.
But what if we’re invited to someone else’s Sukkah? Well then… whether you’re planning to sleep in their backyard or you’re just invited for a meal, one thing is for sure: you should NEVER arrive empty-handed.
The real question is: what kind of gift do we get our lovely Sukkot host/hostess?
That’s exactly what we’ll answer today. By the time you leave this guide, you’ll have a list of unique Sukkot gift ideas at your disposal. Guaranteed!

Traditional Sukkot Gifts
Even though Sukkot isn’t as gift-famous as Chanukkah or Purim, it does have its own unique “flavor”. And no, I’m not talking about the flavor of the Etrog.
The Jewish traditions of Sukkot & Simchat Torah give you a terrific opportunity to find some very interesting traditional Sukkot & Simchat Torah gifts and surprise your friends and family while they sit in their Sukkah.
Let me show you what I mean…Top Traditional Gift
The most precious of the 4 species is the Etrog.
It’s like a baby: it needs a lot of care, attention, and protection. (don’t worry, no need to read it bedtime stories though)
Yair Emanuel – one of Israel’s finest Judaica artists has got you (and your Etrog) covered… and for a reasonable price, too.
Note: If you ever tried buying an Etrog box, you know how expensive Etrog boxes can be.
Not only do you protect your precious Etrog… you do it in style too. It’s like a baby driving a Ferrari (hang on – babies don’t drive… oh well, you know what I mean)
A wonderful Sukkot gift and/or decoration for your Sukkah.
I would be remiss not to include an Etrog & Lulav set. After all, there’s no point celebrating Sukkot or sitting in a Sukkah without it.
This beautiful Kosher set includes a Lulav, Etrog, 2 Aravot, 3 Hadassim – everything you need to fulfill the Mitzvah of the four species.
Sukkot is one of the three Jewish pilgrimage festivals. And right after Sukkot finishes, we get to celebrate Simchat Torah – the conclusion of our annual reading of the Torah…
What better way to start off reading from the Torah again, than with this breathtaking, best-selling Deluxe Torah?
The Torah book features the complete text of the Hebrew Bible (including punctuation) and is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations, paintings and stunning works of art featured throughout the entire book.
With gold ornamentation and high-quality lacquer finishing, this is an incredibly thoughtful Sukkot & Simchat Torah gift that will leave a lasting impression.
The Etrog’s symbolizes the heart. It represents the Jewish expectation of understanding, wisdom, and development of character. That’s why it has both taste (which represents learning) and smell (represents good deeds), and why it’s the most expensive piece in Sukkot.
There’s a nice Sukkot gift tradition to get a premium Etrog box, to reflect the importance of the qualities the Etrog stands for.
And when you’re looking for premium Etrog boxes, there’s only one true option you should consider: Hazorfim.
Hazorfim’s sterling silver Etrog box is truly a one-of-a-kind gift you can get anyone who values the importance of the Etrog, and Sukkot in general. The box is creatively decorated with stunning climbing leaves, elegant swirled engravings and comes in a beautiful, exclusive gift package to commemorate its high value.
Bonus: You also get a certificate of authentication and a warranty card.
Sukkot Gifts for Kids
You want your kids to feel the Sukkot spirit. Sure, you can tell them stories all day long… but as you probably realized at this point – your kids need something to play with and feel with their own hands, otherwise, they’ll get bored and you’ll miss the opportunity to teach them all about the Jewish feast of Sukkot…
How do you keep them engaged? Read on…Top Children’s Gift
Ok… maybe it’s not a traditional Sukkah, and it’s not exactly a kit either…
But don’t you think the little ones deserve their one little Sukkah to “dwell” in? (just make sure they pay rent)
With their very own Sukkah, they become the masters in their little universe! (no grown-ups are allowed in!)
If you were looking for ways to educate the little ones about the festival of Sukkot, without forcing them to sleep outside in the cold (that honor is reserved just for you) – this is one cute way to do it.
The kids deserve their own Lulav & Etrog, don’t you think? It’s not fair that only us adults get to play with Sukkot’s four species…
Kids want to shake the four species too… how else can you teach them about the festival of booths and make them feel the Sukkot spirit? And what an adorable & creative way to allow them to do exactly that.
When Sukkot is over, Jews celebrate Simchat Torah by dancing with a Sefer Torah. While kids are too young to be trusted with the holy book, they sure can dance along with their little plush Torahs!
Don’t forget to bring cameras (or phones) and capture the moment, it’ll be hilarious.
Children are visual learners. Heck, I would argue that even adults are visual learners.
Imagine telling your children the story of each Jewish holiday with his very own personalized holiday book…they get to see what every holiday looks like. Nothing beats an immersive learning experience, especially when it has your name on it.
Tip: This Personalized Jewish holiday book includes all Jewish holidays: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, Shavuot, and even Shabbat.
Sukkot Hostess Gifts
You’ve been invited over to a Sukkah for the holiday. Doesn’t matter if it’s your parents, your in-laws’ or one of your friends’ Sukkah – you don’t want to arrive empty-handed.
Getting the Sukkah host/hostess a nice present is a nice way to thank them for the invite… It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Here, I’ll show you…
Every Jewish fella knows: a Jewish holiday without (LOTS of) food – is no Jewish holiday (except for Yom Kippur). The same is true for Sukkot… particularly on Sukkot!
Because on Sukkot – we get to dine in our lovely Sukkah!
It’s no surprise then that one of the best gifts you can get your hostess for Sukkot is Joan Nathan’s famous Jewish holiday cookbook.
Joan’s decades of gathering Jewish recipes from around the world take you on a tour of Jewish culinary, expressed in delicious Kosher food & recipes.
You’ll find menus from different cuisines, including Moroccan, Russian, German to name a few, suitable for any Jewish holiday in the calendar. There are even dishes that date back to the second Jewish temple!
A very thoughtful & exotic Sukkot gift for your lovely hostess.Top Hostess Gift
So you didn’t get to spend this Sukkot in Jerusalem (no worries, next year in Jerusalem 🙂 )
How about if Jerusalem can come to you?
Thanks to Yair Emanuel’s artistic board & knife set – you can do just that.
The famous Israeli artist painted Jerusalem’s old city across the surface of this unique wooden Challah board… which makes it an absolute delight addition to the Shabbat table (and to the Sukkah).
Also Recommended: Check out these beautiful Challah boards for Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
The Etrog is one of the Four Species of Sukkot, and the most important one, too.
So naturally, getting someone an Etrog that moonlights as a Havdalah candle is one helluva surprise. What better way to end Shabbat and start the week off on the right foot during (or after) Sukkot?
Handcrafted in Safed (North of Israel) from natural beeswax, while dipped and braided in the age-old traditional manner for a flame that burns bright and clear!
A unique gift for the Sukkot festival, Shabbat or even as a Jewish housewarming gift.
Also Recommended: The best Havdalah sets to welcome the new week.
Sukkot Gift Baskets
While not an official “gift basket holiday” like Purim, Sukkot is a great opportunity to delight your family or hostess with some delicious Kosher gift baskets for Sukkot.
After all, you have to munch something while having those long talks in the Sukkah…Top Gift Basket
You know your recipient is trying to lay off the snacks, so go easy on them, will ya? Otherwise…
- They’ll finish the whole thing in one day
- They’ll feel bad about themselves
- They’ll blame you for putting on weight
Nobody wants that.
Instead, get them a healthy Sukkot gift basket – fully packed with a huge variety of all-natural, gluten-free, protein-rich nuts & snacks, namely:
- Mixed nuts
- Raw walnuts
Tip: This gift tray is also suitable for people in “special” diets: think vegans, diabetics, paleo diet, or almost any diet under the sun.
Besides, it’s HUGE. There’s no chance they’ll be able to finish it on their own (unlike other gift boxes in this section)…which means they’ll have to share it with their loved ones for days (if not weeks). And sharing – is caring ❤️.
See what you did? You didn’t choose a healthy gift basket, now you won’t be able to resist 🙂
It’s Godiva, you’re not supposed to resist Godiva… you’re supposed to crave and drool on your keyboard (or is it just me?).
If you’ve ever tasted Godiva, you’d probably agree that calling it delicious would be the understatement of the century.
If you’ve NEVER tried Godiva – then I only have one question: what the hell are you waiting for?!
Oh, and in case you were wondering: this golden gift box is 100% Kosher!
What did I tell ya? Irresistible.
You thought Rosh Hashanah was sweet with all the honey and all?
Wait till you try this DELICIOUS basket of treats!
Arrayed in this beautiful wooden tray is an impressive list of delicious (Pareve) snacks, including:
- Gourmet chocolate coated pretzels
- Premium roasted Cashews
- Chocolate bonbons
- Viennese Crunch bars
And even more goodies.
If you’re looking for reasons to convince the kids (or adults) to sit in the Sukkah, all you have to do is put this gift basket on the Sukkah table, and people will magically start to appear…
Sukkot Flowers Gifts
Still haven’t found an appropriate Sukkot present for your lovely hostess? Or perhaps you want to do a nice little gesture for your sweet wife and decorate the Sukkah with a little color and smell.
Well then, these traditional flowers are here to the rescue. Believe me, people wouldn’t want to leave your Sukkah when it has one of these flowers at your table’s centerpiece.Top Flower Gift
This gorgeous bouquet is the ultimate “Jewish bouquet”.
Obvious joke: No, not because it’s circumcised!
- First – it’s blue & white…
- Second – the unique combination of flowers & colors makes you want to stare at it for hours. And once you do…
It’s the type of bouquet that captures your focus, soothes your soul, and gives you that inner sense of bliss…You know – that feeling you get when you stare at the clear blue sky on a bright afternoon (hint: look at the name of the bouquet).
Sure – it would’ve been perfect for Rosh Hashanah.
But hey… Sukkot is your second chance 🙂
“Chag Sameach! Sending you and your family lots of hugs and kisses!”
Now there’s a typical blessing you’ll often get (and send) on Sukkot.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s sweet and all… but you know what’s even sweeter?
Sending ACTUAL hugs and kisses… DOZENS of them!
This thoughtful bouquet contains an impressive array of beautiful flowers, including:
- White daisy spray chrysanthemums
- Pink carnations
- Red miniature carnations
- And of course: red roses
This is one cute bouquet to send our loved ones. Whether you’re looking for a “Honey, I Love You” or a “Mommy, I Love You” bouquet for Sukkot – this certainly sends the right message.
Whoever named this bouquet knew what they were doing: Arrive in Style – damn straight.
This marvelous bouquet is a terrific gift to bring to someone’s Sukkah.
Think about it: they might have the 4 species in the Sukkah – but I guarantee they don’t have a centerpiece like this inside their Sukkah!
Now, they also have a Sukkah decoration that “steals” the attention from the other poor decorations who don’t stand a chance.
And it’s all thanks to you!
This bouquet includes:
- Light pink roses
- White Asiatic lilies
- White alstroemeria
- White cushion spray chrysanthemums
- White statice and colorful pittosporum
Quite the mouthful, huh?
Well, let me tell ya: it’s also quite the “eyeful” and “noseful”!
Bonus: You can even add a stuffed animal (and chocolates) to go along with the bouquet.
Now, that’s how you make an entrance on Sukkot!
All that’s left is to help decorate the Sukkah and say Shalom & Toda Raba to your Sukkah host/hostess.
I hope you find a few unique Sukkot gift ideas for your loved ones. Now go enjoy one of the most exciting holidays in the Jewish calendar…
Chag Sameach 🙂
