Unique & Creative Passover Gifts

Traditional Pesach gifts are nice, and quite common too. But if you’re looking to surprise your friends & family with a unique gift they didn’t expect, a gift that evokes an “Oh WoW” response instead of an “Oh, that’s nice…” response – then “common” Passover gifts aren’t a good enough option.

Instead, you’ll probably want unique & creative Passover gift ideas, like these:

Laura Cowan Modular Magnetic Square Matzah Tray

Top Creative Gift

Laura Cowan Modular Magnetic Square Matzah Tray

I just recently discovered Laura Cowan, and I have to say – her designs are amazing… And this spectacular matzah tray proves it.

Luckily, that’s where Kiddush wine fountains become a blessing (and I’m not talking about the wine blessing). 

This stunning nickel Kiddush wine fountain is made in Israel. And besides being covered with elegant floral & Star of David motifs, the fountain is also beautifully decorated with the names of the four rivers that flowed through the garden of Eden – a Kabbalistic omen for salvation and blessings.

Laura Cowan Ripple Effect Seder Plate

Laura Cowan Ripple Effect Seder Plate

Yes, Laura Cowan gets a second spot on the list.

You probably noticed that Laura gets her inspiration from special places & events, and this seder plate is no different.

This bestselling, unique seder plate was inspired by the rippling effect a single raindrop can have a much bigger pool of water.

The mirror-polished steel plate has the traditional “Mah Nishtana” seder song engraved in both English and Hebrew, leading up to the “Pesach” word in the middle.

The tear-shaped porcelain bowls are included and can be arranged in any pattern on the beautiful shiny surface.

Simply beautiful.

Passover Artwork 

This is where modern meets classy. Passover artwork is one of the most popular & appropriate gifts you can buy.

it makes sense if you think about it: the seder table is the perfect art exhibit, where you get to host your own “personal art show” and amaze your guests.

The good thing about Passover art is that it’s actually practical – it’s not just a nice little art gallery. You can actually use (some) of the beautiful artistic items I mentioned here during your Passover dinner.

Yair Emanuel Wooden Passover Seder Plate with Jerusalem Depictions

Passover Hostess Gift Ideas

Your Passover hostess has invited you over for Passover. And I’m guessing, has been spending hours (if not days) preparing the Seder table.

The least you can do is to get your hostess a nice Passover Seder gift to make her feel happy after all that effort.

Say no more – there are plenty of appropriate Passover gifts you can get her. These are my favorite: 

Lily Art Round Passover Glass Seder Plate

Top Seder Hostess Gift

Lily Art Round Passover Glass Seder Plate

Lily Art’s elegant glass seder plate features a beautiful design of shiny blue flowers, covering the entire plate.

Surrounded by these flowers, all of a sudden the Marror (bitter herbs) will look much more appealing (that doesn’t mean you should eat more than the minimal amount).

This unique seder plate was meant to be given as a gift to your host or hostess… just think that every seder from now on remind them of that Passover you got them this special Seder plate… ain’t that nice?

Lily Art Glass Miriam Cup With Metal PlaqueLily Art Glass Miriam Cup With Metal Plaque

Is it a coincidence that this precious orange glass Miriam cup (Kiddush cup for women) comes right after the glass seder plate?

No, of course not.

Kosher for Passover Wine

Passover is all about celebrating freedom. And like King David says in Psalms: “Wine gladdens the human heart”. So naturally, wine plays a big role in every Seder table, which is a sign of wealth & abundance.

That’s why a bottle of wine is considered one of the best Passover gifts to give to your host or hostess. If you’re hosting the seder this year, then you might be worth getting a wine case (you can buy cases for any of the wine brands mentioned below).

Allow me to introduce you to some of the best Kosher for Passover wine brands for this seder.

The Chosen Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The Chosen Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

We’re starting off with The Chosen Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – an excellent, award-winning wine straight from one of Israel’s finest boutique wineries.

Chosen Barell’s Cabernet Sauvignon has a “fruity” taste to it, which obviously goes very well with steak & grilled meats, making it a great choice for a Seder dinner gift.

Tip: Aging it for an extra 3-5 years will really give it enhanced notes of ripe black fruit and cassis.

Get it Here

Shiloh Secret Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Shiloh Secret Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

A smooth, luxurious dark-red color wine with a strong black fruit and cassis aroma. Even though this wine is “Mevushal”, but tastes like “Not Mevushal”.

Pairs nicely with steak, burgers, or any other type of meat, and is definitely a “crowd-pleaser”.

Dalton Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Top Wine Gift

Dalton Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The Dalton Cabernet’s is a very smooth dark ruby-red color wine. It has a lovely aroma of berries, cassis, mint, and shades of vanilla from the barrel.

The “dark”, chocolaty flavor might actually remind you of French wine.

This Cabernet is the perfect example of richness and modesty – the modesty part being represented by its cheap price.

This Dalton is a must-have for every Cabernet Sauvignon lover.

Psagot Edom Magnum 2009

Psagot Edom Magnum 2009

I saved the best for last…

The Psagot Edom Magnum is simply incredible.

This dry, “Not Mevushal” wine is a firmly-structured red with classic and pure flavors of blackberry, plum and cigar box. It has an amazingly rich & mellow texture along with bold red-berry flavors.

The fact that it has been aged in premium French & American oak barrels adds complex vanilla and spice characteristics to the flavor.

This is considered “gourmet wine” – It’s not cheap, but definitely better than many more expensive French and Israeli wines.

Tip: If you’re hosting a large Passover seder or want your wine to last for the entire holiday, you might be better off ordering a Passover wine case, featuring 12 excellent Kosher for Passover wines (including some of the ones I mentioned above)

Passover Flower Gifts

People often say: “there’s no wrong time for flowers.

But let me tell you this: there’s definitely a right time, and Passover is one of them.

Flowers are a great gift to get for your seder hostess, wife or if you’re invited to a friend’s home.

Note: It makes sense if you think about it: besides bringing beauty & joy to the Passover dinner, Pesach usually falls at the beginning of the spring, so it’s a natural way to decorate your Seder table.

Let’s take a look at the best flowers commonly given for Passover.

Spring Garden Basket

Top Flower Gift

Spring Garden Basket
