Sukkot Gifts

Sukkot – one of the three Pilgrimage Festivals (Shalosh Regalim) …

The holiday we get to replace our home for 7 days, in favor of a small, modest hut – as a reminder of the clouds of glory that protected our ancestors during the Exodus.

We eat, sleep & celebrate the Jewish feast of Tabernacles (or feast of booths) under a Kosher Sukkah

If you’re lucky enough to get invited to a friend’s Sukkah, then you probably shouldn’t go empty handed. I’m guessing you already knew that otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this…

So, let’s get straight to it: allow me to help you find the best Sukkot gift ideas you can get your family or Sukkah host/hostess…

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…

Yair Emanuel Etrog Box – Jerusalem

Top Traditional Gift

Yair Emanuel Etrog Box Jerusalem

The most precious of the 4 species is the Etrog. It requires special treatment and a special Etrog box that will protect it throughout the holiday. And when you say special treatment, there’s hardly anything more special than Yair Emanuel’s special Judaica designs… case in point – Emanuel’s remarkable Etrog box.

His unique, hand-painted design will add a colorful touch to your Sukkah and will remain standing as a beautiful artifact for the remaining of the year.

Hazorfim 925 Sterling Silver Etrog Box – Compatilo

Hazorfim 925 Sterling Silver Etrog Box Compatilo

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 really 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 of 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.
