Traditional Hanukkah Gifts

The Menorah is lit

The Dreidel is spinning.

It’s a Hanukkah miracle!

The most common Hanukkah traditions also happen to be the most popular traditional Hanukkah gifts. You simply can’t celebrate Hanukkah without them.

So let’s go get em’, shall we?

24K Gold & Blue Hand Painted Crystals Menorah + Intertwining Flowers Design

Top Traditional Gift
Hand Painted Menorah Candelabra Embellished Intertwining Flowers Design 24kgold Blue Crystals

I’ll cut to the chase: this is one of THE most beautiful Hanukkah Menorahs I’ve ever seen in my life (and I’ve seen many).

That’s not surprising, considering it’s made by Matashi – who are famous for their legendary crystal designs.

And just like so many of their other crystal designs – this crystal Menorah isn’t just stunning, it’s also incredibly affordable (unlike many other luxurious Menorahs that cost an arm and a leg).

Normally – it’s the Menorah lights that capture people’s attention. Not this time…

This time – when you’ll notice people gazing at this Menorah – know that it’s not the lights they’re staring at… it’s the Menorah itself they marvel at.

We also created a list of our favorite crystal Menorahs here.

Nambè Hanukkah Geo Dreidel + Stand

Nambe Hanukkah Geo Dreidel Stand

The “Biography of a Dreidel” looks something like this:

  1. Hanukkah comes… you’re excited to spin the Dreidel.
  2. You spin it once. You spin it twice. Spin, spin, spin…
  3. After 8 days of spinning – you’re bored to death. Either you’re done, or the Dreidel is.

Before you know it – you put the dreidel back in the closet… and there it sits collecting dust all year long.

Shame, isn’t it?

Nambè sure thought so. 

That’s why they decided to approach world-famous designer, Mikaela Dörfel, with an interesting challenge:

“Mikaela, can you create a Dreidel that people would want to keep on display not just for 8 days, but for 365 days… without getting tired of it? A Dreidel that is so beautiful that people would pay money to see in a museum? A Dreidel that doesn’t have an expiry date?”

Mikaela took her famous walk in nature to get the creative juices flowing, went to the drawing board to sketch out a rough Geometrical shape. “OK… Let’s get to work”.

A few weeks, blood, sweat and tears later – this remarkable Geo Dreidel was born.

You can spin it, or you can display it…

No matter what you do – one thing is for sure: it will look amazing.

Yair Emanuel Painted Metal Menorah with Arches, Pomegranates & Birds

Yair Emanuel Painted Metal Menorah With Arches, Pomegranates Birds

Yair Emanuel is back, ladies and gentlemen! And this time, he brought cute birdies and pomegranates with him!

Just like many of Emanuel’s modern Menorahs – this one has the traditional Menorah “look”, combined with his signature contemporary touch.

What’s nice about this one is that you can fit both Hanukkah candles and oil cups. So choose the ones you like best! 

Tip: This is one of Emanuel’s most popular Menorahs on Hanukkah – they fly off the shelf like mad every year, so make sure you get one sooner rather than later.

Hanukkah Gift Ideas for Women

So you’re looking for a nice Hanukkah present for a special woman in your life?

The good thing (and the bad thing) about shopping for women is that you pretty much have endless options…

That poses a problem: what gift should you get her when there are SO many options out there?

Don’t worry… I’m here to help.

In this section, I’ll show you the most unique Hanukkah gift ideas any woman would be happy to get this upcoming holiday.

Whether it’s for your wife, girlfriend, or any other special woman you care about – I guarantee these presents will make her “light up” with joy (pun intended)!

Yair Emanuel Hand Painted Laser Cut Bowl Hearts

Top Gift for Women
Yair Emanuel Hand Painted Laser Cut Bowl Hearts

Sufganiyot, Latkes, Kugel… 

No doubt – your lovely Hanukkah hostess is pouring her heart out this holiday to serve her guests with the most delicious Hanukkah treats… the least you can do is get her a gift with all your heart. Heck, a TON of hearts!

Designed by Yair Emanuel, arguably the top Judaica artist in the world – who’s famous for his vibrant Jewish artwork.

And make no mistake – that’s exactly what this colorful bowl is – Jewish art at its finest.

You know what that means?

When Hanukkah is over – she won’t just stash this bowl with the rest of the bowls.

No, sir…

She’ll use it as a decorative piece… because it’s just so friggin’ beautiful!

A marvelous Hanukkah gift any woman will appreciate on Hanukkah – whether it’s for your wife, your mother-in-law or whoever was nice enough to invite you for Hanukkah 🙂

Jerusalem: A Cookbook

Jerusalem A Cookbook

Most of us would love to spend Hanukkah in Jerusalem. Hell, I bet you get a little “homesick” even when it’s not Hanukkah (I know I do). 

The western wall, the Hanukkah candle lighting, the food…

Yes, the food (who are we kidding here?)!

The fact is, life sometimes gets in the way and we can’t always pack our bags and catch the next flight to Ben Gurion airport.

The good thing is you don’t necessarily have to (at least when it comes to the food).

That’s precisely why Yotam Ottolenghi, the famous London-based Israeli chef wrote his bestselling cookbook: so we’ll be able to enjoy the vibrant food Jerusalem has to offer from our very own kitchen, without having to pay for a plane ticket.

His cookbook includes a wide range of recipes and cuisines: from middle eastern food (think Hummus and the likes), traditional Jewish pastries, all the way up to Georgian food (yep).

If there’s one cookbook every Jewish kitchen MUST have – this is it.

Star of David Necklace with Hebrew Psalm 67 Jewish Menorah

Star of David Necklace with Hebrew Psalm 67 Jewish Menorah

Newsflash: Jewelry is a popular Hanukkah gift for women.

Not exactly a “shock”, is it?

But here’s the thing… 

This is Hanukkah, not Valentine’s Day.

That’s where most men “fail”: they get their wife or girlfriend yet another heart-shaped necklace or another <fill in cliche gift here>.

New Year’s is just around the corner, wait a few more days, will ya?

Instead, why don’t you get her a piece of jewelry that fits the “Hanukkah spirit”? Something that is designed especially for the Jewish festival of lights.

Enter: this gorgeous Menorah + Star of David necklace.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that the Menorah is inscribed in Hebrew with King David’s famous song from Psalm 67.

The miniature Hebrew text is inscribed in 24k gold forming the Golden Menorah from the Jewish holy temple.

Bonus: It comes with a special magnifying glass you so you can “zoom in” and witness the beauty of the necklace up close.

Now, you tell me: which Jewelry gift is more appropriate for Hanukkah? This golden Menorah masterpiece, or one of the million other “me too” Jewelry pieces she has seen so many times?

Women’s Come On Baby Light My Menorah Sweater – with Flashing LED Lights

Womens Come On Baby Light My Menorah Sweater With Flashing Led Led Lights

Ugly Hanukkah sweaters are all the rage giggles these days. And it’s no wonder – they’re friggin’ hilarious! Especially when the Menorah has lights that light up!

Note: Yep, just like Bev from The Goldbergs!

If you’re looking for a cute Hanukkah gift for a woman with a sense of humor, then quit wasting time and start spinning! (don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten the men)

Hanukkah Gift Ideas for Men

Don’t we boys also deserve a nice gift for Hanukkah? What, don’t we have feelings? 

As a Jewish man, I can tell you this: we do appreciate a warm, thoughtful Hanukkah gift on a cold Hanukkah night (especially in the freezing winter!).

You know, things like…

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum 8 Piece Textured Fountain Kiddush Set

Top Gift for Men
Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum 8 Piece Textured Fountain Kiddush Set

What if a single Kiddush cup isn’t enough? 

What if the guy is hosting the best Hanukkah party Kiddush in the neighborhood (especially if it’s your neighbor)… not to mention if he’s got a big family with lots of kids running around spinning Dreidels (maybe in the future, B”H!).

Poor guy needs more than just one Kiddush cup. Could you imagine pouring wine for every single one of your guests (or kids) and passing it along?

The Levivot will get cold by the time everyone sips wine!

The solution? A Kiddush fountain, baby!

That way – he can pour the wine just once, and let the fountain do the job of distributing into 8 different cups!

It’s a Hanukkah miracle!

Hebrew Letters Classic Watch by Adi

Hebrew Letters Classic Watch by Adi

With Santa giving us a hard time during Hanukkah, we’re forced to raise our game and find our man a special gift that connects him to his Jewish origins.

So let’s leave out the standard watches this holiday, shall we?

Our lovely Jewish designers over in Israel can help us find something equally great, if not greater.

Adi Watches to the rescue!

Designed and made in Israel – Adi’s beautiful watch features Hebrew letters in their classic script in a mechanical display and a comfortable black leather band – giving you repeating glimpses of our beautiful language.

Now that’s a Jewish gift worth getting a man for Hanukkah…

Happy Llamakah Men’s Ugly Christmas Sweater

Happy Llamakah Men's Ugly Christmas Sweater

Earlier, I promised an ugly Hanukkah sweater for men. Well, I’m here to deliver… big-time, with a Llama on top!

This Happy Llamakah sweater is genius. I’ve seen a bunch of Llamakah sweaters before, but this one is on a whole other level.

It takes a few moments of actually looking at the sweater to appreciate how absurd this sweater really is.

Here, let me help:

  1. The Llama is wearing glasses
  2. The Llama is wearing a Tallit with tassels sticking out of the sweater (!)
  3. The seemingly random background pattern is actually a collection of Stars of David stringed together.

Like I said: genius.

Hanukkah Gifts for Kids & Babies

Santa Clause is a tough guy to compete with. This means we’ve got to work harder to make our kids happy with some outstanding Hanukkah children’s gifts. 

Don’t worry, it can be done. But we have to step up our game…

Now that we’ve taken care of the adults, it’s time to show our kids there’s nothing to be jealous of the fat guy in the red costume!

Mensch on a Bench

Top Gift for Kids
Mensch on a Bench

Ready Santa? Meet your Jewish nemesis: Mensch on a bench!

Don’t get mistaken – The Mensch might be sitting on a bench, but he’s very active on Hanukkah. Ever since the Mensch made his debut on Shark Tank, he has become one of the most popular Hanukkah gifts for kids. 

Did You Know?

Mensch on a Bench was created by Neil Hoffman, a Jewish father who wanted to get his sons excited about Hanukkah. And we all get to thank him for it.

Finally, you’ve got a real chance to gather your toddlers around the Christmas tree Mensch and teach them all about the festival of lights in a unique & engaging way. 

Oh, and you’ll have to be the one to tell the Hanukkah story. As friendly as the Mensch may seem – he doesn’t talk that much.

Child: “Mommy, are the potato Latkes ready?”

Saras Prints Girls Whirl And Twirl Long Sleeve Nightgown

This cute Hanukkah themed nightgown is a fun way to get the girls into the Hanukkah spirit.

It’s made of 55 percent cotton and 45 percent modacrylic and has long sleeves, so your little girls will feel warm & comfortable while they light the Hanukkah candles.

Maccabee on the Mantel

Maccabee on the Mantel

Kids, I’d like you to meet The Maccabee on the Mantel. Back in the day, he fought hard against Antiochus and his Greek regime who were causing all sorts of mischief in Jerusalem.

And now, he’s here to tell you all about it! (ok, I may have given our hero a bit too much credit, but roll with it).

It’s one thing to hear about the Maccabees. It’s another story to see one in person (or in plush-form; same thing).

The Hanukkah story just became interactive!

Did you know? This gift won the Creative Child Product of the Year award in 2014.

Hanukkah Inflatable Polar Bear with Dreidel

Hanukkah Inflatable Polar Bear With Dreidel

Up until recently, I knew nothing about inflatable Hanukkah decorations. I had heard they were popular, but I had no idea how popular (turns out, very). And leading the army of inflatables is one adorable bear: This pale guy right here! He’s EVERYWHERE, and everyone seems to LOVE him.

The bear self-inflates, thanks to a built-in fan installed inside the bear, so you don’t have to do anything except plug him in and watch the magic happen.

Perfect if you have a yard, but even if not – let the bear inflate inside. He doesn’t take up that much room (plus, you can deflate him).

Personalized Hanukkah Gifts

“Dear X, I love you so much I got you a personalized Hanukkah gift. Enjoy!” 

There’s no better way to show someone you care than to get them a personalized Hanukkah present just for them.

  1. You went above and beyond and didn’t arrive at the Hanukkah meal empty-handed.

With all the hype around the typical Hanukkah candles, it’s refreshing (literally) to receive an atypical candle for Hanukkah for a change.

Personalized Happy Hanukkah Glass Frame

Personalized Happy Hanukkah Glass Frame

Now there’s a sweet Hanukkah gift. Not in a chocolate gelt or Sufganiya kind of way. But in a real, human way.

Unlike the 99% of gifts people get on Hanukkah – a personalized Happy Hanukkah photo frame is something your recipient can continue using for many years (or Hanukkahs) in a row. And if they have kids, next Hanukkah they can just swap the photo with an up-to-date one (so everyone can see how much they’ve grown in this past year!)

This one is arguably the kindest, most thoughtful gift on this entire gift guide.

Tip: If you want to take it a step further – grab a photo of your gift recipient and their family from any of the social networks (Facebook, Instagram, etc’) and attach it to the frame. That way, they can immediately display it the moment they receive it.

Unique & Cool Hanukkah Gifts

So far, we’ve seen plenty of great Hanukkah gifts. But let’s face it – there wasn’t anything unusual with most of them. 

Don’t get me wrong – they’re all awesome (otherwise we wouldn’t have picked them!). But they’re not exactly “Oh wow, what’s that?” kind of gifts.

That’s all about to change in this upcoming section.

Thes creative Hanukkah gift ideas you’re about to see are ALL about that. Believe me, they’ll make any adult light up like a child (and every child, like a Menorah) this Hanukkah.

Ok, let’s stop with the teasing and dive in!

Tree of Life Menorah – Silver-Plate + Gold-Tone Cups

Top Unique Gift
Rite Lite M Tree T Large Tree Of Life Menorah Silver Plate Gold Tone Cups

The Tree of Life is one of the most ancient Jewish Kabbalistic symbols in the entire Jewish tradition.

How ancient, you ask?

Well, it describes God’s creation of the world using 10 interconnected spheres (The 10 Sefirot) – the same 10 spheres that form the Tree of Life… so pretty ancient I’d say.

Now… combine that with one of the oldest symbols in the Jewish tradition – and you get a unique and meaningful Hanukkah gift that’ll certainly spark some interesting conversations.

Keep in Mind: This Menorah is best used for decorative purposes. Because technically speaking, this Menorah doesn’t qualify as a Kosher Chanukiah. According to Jewish law, Chanukiah candles have to be organized in a straight line – which clearly isn’t the case in this Menorah.

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum Children’s Train Hanukkah Menorah

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum Children’s Train Hanukkah Menorah

Choo Choo! Time to light the Hanukkah candles!

Once again – Yair Emanuel created a surprise that is just as fun for adults as it is for kids.

Imagine your child seeing this magnificent train in action and actually light up on Hanukkah – led by the Shamash in front of the train (the engine).

And unlike most Menorahs that collect dust the whole year after Hanukkah is over – this one can double as your kid’s new favorite toy throughout the year!

  • You eat a Sufganiyah – with tea.
  • You eat a Latke – and drink tea.
  • You have tea – with tea.

Now, apparently, you have a Menorah… with tea 🍵.

Small & Inexpensive Hanukkah Gifts

The good thing about Hanukkah is that, well, it’s not Christmas… even though it certainly resembles it these days.

That’s what happens when the fat guy in the red costume puts on a fight – you have to unleash your own Hanukkah gifts just to keep up.

But the truth is – you don’t have to get a whole lot of Hanukkah supplies. Competing with the “Joneses” – in this case – Santa and his legion of elves – is a surefire way to light holes in your pockets, rather than Hanukkah candles.

A few small & inexpensive Hanukkah gifts can go a long way. And I’m about to prove it to you.

But that’s not an excuse to binge-drink, young fella! You’ve got to have some boundaries and put a “stop” to it before you start imagining flying reindeers and join Santa in the psych-ward.

That’s exactly where this cute Menorah bottle stopper comes in handy 🙂

You didn’t expect me to have a Hanukkah gift guide and not mention Hanukkah gelt, now did you? 

It’s impossible to imagine Hanukkah without Gelt. It’s been a Hanukkah staple for god how knows how long, and that tradition continues to this day.

Those of you who remember the good ol’ days – before Hanukkah became this huge gift-giving festival… All we used to get as kids was Hanukkah gelt coins. And boy, did my eyes light up every time I got chocolate gelt…

Sure, Godiva’s Kosher gift box isn’t made specifically for Hanukkah; it doesn’t have any fancy Hanukkah decorations or gift wraps like the other gift boxes. The quality is fully contained inside the chocolate itself.

Let me put it this way: if you’re looking for a Hanukkah gift for a chocolate addict (or chocolate snob) – there’s a good chance this will be the best present they received this Hanukkah (or any Hanukkah for that matter).

Hanukkah Flower Gifts

For the ladies in the crowd, I’m sure many of you (would like to) tell your husband: “You don’t need a special occasion to get me flowers”.

Well, if you’re reading this, you’re in luck – because there’s a special occasion around the corner – Hanukkah!

So ladies – make sure your husband/boyfriend reads the following section.

(just share this Hanukkah gift guide with him and give him a gentle “nudge”)

And for the gentlemen reading this – choose wisely.

Clear Blue Skies Bouquet

Clear Blue Skies Bouquet

If there’s such a thing as a “Jewish bouquet” – I believe this is it.

Obvious joke: No, not because it’s circumcised!

  1. First – it’s blue & white…
  2. Second – the unique combination of flowers & colors makes you want to stare at it for hours. And once you do…

It’ll capture your focus… light your eyes (no Hanukkah candles needed)… and you’ll start to feel that inner sense of bliss…

You know – that feeling you get when you stare at the clear blue sky…

Now you see why this is a perfect bouquet for Hanukkah? (or any Jewish holiday for that matter)

Bonus: Not saying that you should (unless your girlfriend forces you) – but you can include a stuffed animal or chocolates to go along with the bouquet.

Arrive in Style

Arrive In Style

The name says it all, doesn’t it?

If you’re invited over for Hanukkah – you want to make sure you: arrive in style!

How do you that?

Easy: Knock on the door wearing your finest holiday clothes, while holding this gorgeous “Arrive in Style” bouquet.

It’s not just about the catchy (and very appropriate) name…  this bouquet comes with an impressive array of white (and some Pink Roses) flowers:

  • White Asiatic lilies
  • White alstroemeria
  • White cushion spray chrysanthemums
  • White statice and colorful pittosporum

In Judaism, white is a symbol of purity. Add a dose of pink to it, and you get stylish purity!

What a Treat

What A Treat

Oh boy, what a treat!

Lilies are my absolute favorite. Not only do they look divine (once the buds open up), they also smell AMAZING!

This phenomenal bouquet is no exception… because Lilies are in there, baby! Along with “cameos” from Daisies, Alstroemeria (and some other flower I can’t pronounce).

If you thought Lilies smell incredible, wait till you give this bouquet a good whiff… you’ll wish perfume companies would make a fragrance out of it.

Either use it as your main Hanukkah centerpiece or break them apart and sprinkle individual blooms across the Seder table… 

No matter which option you choose – I guarantee it’ll be a treat!

Time to Blow Out the Candles!

That was fun, wasn’t it?

I know, I know… You’ve got enough Hanukkah gift ideas that will last you for 50 years.

But you don’t need 50 gifts. You need 1 great Hanukkah present for each loved one. That’s more than enough to put a big smile on their face and make them light up like a Menorah!

Happy Hanukkah 🙂

Spread the love ❤️
