You finally get to see your family and loved ones around the Seder table – reading the Haggadah, drinking wine, eating Matzo balls (or Gefilte Fish)…

FREEDOM at last! 

But before you start jamming to “Ma Nishtana” and scaring away the birds, you might want to get your friends and lovely Seder hostess an appropriate Passover gift.

Otherwise, as the Brits would say: that’s bloody rude! 

Luckily, our Jewish moms taught us better…

Now… the only question is:

“What gift should I bring to the Passover Seder dinner?”

That, my friend, is exactly what I’ll answer in this special Pesach gift guide!

30+ Classy Mishloach Manot Ideas [Gifts + Gift Baskets] for Purim (2019)

What’s your favorite part of Purim?

Usually, there are three possible answers to that question:

  1. Send/receive Mishloach Manot baskets
  2. Dress up in cool Purim costumes
  3. Send/receive Purim baskets while dressing up in cool Purim costumes

Hmm… it seems that there’s only one answer after all…

In Purim, we give Mishloach Manot as a sign of friendship, unity, and care to the people around us. Every Jew is required to send a Shalach Manot to at least one person.

Luckily though – we care about more than just one person… so more often than not we end up sending several Shalach Manot to the people we love.

Therein lies the secret of this special Mitzvah: the more we give to others ⇒ the more love we spread ⇒ the more love we get back in return.

It’s a beautiful cycle of joy and caring – that becomes stronger and stronger the more we give.

And today, you’re going to start off that cycle with the best Mishloach Manot & Purim gift ideas for our family, friends & loved ones…

The girl’s Bat Mitzvah is around the corner.

And you’re about to be a part of it…

Yippee! How exciting!

But before you hop on the dance floor and do the chair-dance (spoiler alert), you first need to get the girl a sparkling Bat Mitzvah gift.

A gift that shines… something that will light her up like a Menorah the moment she sees it for the first time.

And what better way to do that than with a unique Bat Mitzvah Jewelry gift?

After all – we all know that Jewish Jewelry gifts are THE best present you can get for a Bat Mitzvah girl on her big day. It’s the ultimate blend of beauty and meaning – which is exactly what the Bat Mitzvah ceremony is all about. 

But what kind Jewelry gift should you get her? The million dollar question…

Should you get her a Star of David necklace? Maybe a Hamsa bracelet? How about a Shema Yisrael ring? Perhaps Roman Glass earrings?

Ahhhh! Too many choices!

No wonder people get overwhelmed…

That’s exactly why I spent hours writing this comprehensive Bat Mitzvah Jewelry gift guide…

To help you:

  • … Escape the same cliché gifts everyone else gets 
  • … Avoid getting her Jewelry she’ll never wear (or worse – ones she’ll only wear when you’re around to not hurt your feelings)
  • … Choose the best Jewelry gift the girl will absolutely LOVE (without spending hours (or days) browsing through endless Jewelry pieces that all look the same)

20+ Beautiful Modern & Contemporary Menorahs for Hanukkah (2019)

I assume this isn’t the first you’re celebrating Hanukkah (unless you’re like 3 years old… in which case – what are you doing on the internet, child?!)…

Then I suppose you’ve seen a traditional Jewish Menorah or two in your lifetime… (it looks something like this 🕎)

Well, let me tell ya – if all of the Menorahs you’ve ever seen (or owned) look kind of the same – then you’ve been missing out on a whole lot.

Just like Apple comes out with new inventions every once in a while (probably less so, these days) – so do creative & talented Jewish artists come up with new modern & contemporary Menorahs (except they don’t normally charge you $1,000 for it as Apple does).

Yes, Hanukkah is a traditional Jewish holiday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it with a beautiful modern Menorah!
