Usually, there are three possible answers to that question:

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

A 13-year-old’s Bar Mitzvah is a big deal:

… The gathering…

… The Torah reading…

… The dancing…

And of course, the real highlight of the night: his brand new Bar Mitzvah gifts!

If all goes well, the young man will have a meaningful & lifelong experience he’ll remember for the rest of his life.

Now, here’s the big question you’re probably asking yourself:

“What appropriate Bar Mitzvah present should I give the boy?”

Well, I can tell you this: times have changed… Gone are the days where you give the young 13-year-old cash in multiples of $18 and call it a day (although they won’t say “no” to your money if you give it to them).

Not to mention it has become a LOT harder to satisfy young boys these days, especially when it comes to their Bar Mitzvah. 

Here’s the truth: If you want the young man to cherish this moment (and your gift), you’ll have to do better than that… MUCH better.

And that’s exactly why I wrote this Bar Mitzvah gift guide: to help you find the very best Bar Mitzvah gift ideas every Jewish young man will be lucky to get on his special day (I know I would)…
