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.

Now that we got that clear… the only thing left to do is… find a unique gift for Sukkot!

Jews have their own “shtick” when it comes to celebrating holidays and special occasions:

  • Instead of Christmas gifts, they have Hanukkah gifts.
  • Instead of dressing up for Halloween, they have their own dress-up holiday called Purim.
  • Instead of Easter, they celebrate Passover
  • Instead of (or in addition to) a baby shower, Jews have a Bris ceremony

But unlike holidays, Jews celebrate special occasions just like any other culture (albeit with a “Jewish twist”): Jews get engaged, get married… and of course – the topic for today – they celebrate a wedding anniversary!

And just like any other Jewish celebration – the types of gifts you’d normally give on a Jewish wedding anniversary are slightly different than in most cultures…

In this guide, we’ll showcase all kinds of gifts you can surprise your significant other with on your special day, doesn’t matter if it’s your 1st Jewish wedding anniversary or your 50th…

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, I don’t know how to break it to you – but if all of the Menorahs you’ve ever seen kind of look 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 charge you an arm and a leg for it like Apple does).

Or to put it another way – just because Hanukkah is a traditional Jewish holiday doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it with a modern Menorah!
