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?

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

Top Traditional Gift

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

We’ve all heard about the miracle of Hanukkah a million times: a small amount of oil that was supposed to last for a day – lasted for 8 whole days.

Since then – we light 8 Hanukkah candles every year, and the Menorah became the official symbol of Hanukkah 🕎

But what if I told you that there’s a 2nd miracle hidden behind this silver & gold & silver Tree of Life Menorah? A hidden miracle nobody talks about…

The miracle of creation.

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 the miracle of Hanukkah with the miracle of creation itself.

What do you get (besides thought-provoking philosophical discussions)? 

You get a deep, meaningful Hanukkah gift that completely blows the recipient’s expectations and transcends any other gift your Jewish friends can possibly get this Hanukkah.

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 on the stand.

No matter what you do – it still looks amazing.

You could stare at it forever… and that’s exactly what you’ll do with this masterpiece.

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

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 most of their designs – their crystal Menorah is not only gorgeous, it’s incredibly affordable (unlike many other luxurious Menorahs that charge an arm and a leg).

Normally – when people stare at the Menorah – it’s usually the Menorah lights they’re looking at. But when you’ll notice people gazing at this Menorah – know that it’s not the lights they’re looking at… it’s the Menorah itself they marvel at.

Hanukkah Gift Ideas for Her

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… in fact, with MANY hearts!

Designed by Yair Emanuel, one of Israel’s famous artists – who’s famous for his vibrant Jewish artwork.

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

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 darn beautiful!

An absolutely magnificent Hanukkah gift for women – whether it’s 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?)!

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 any Jewish kitchen MUST have – this is it.

Nambe Sabbath 8-inch Candlesticks

Nambe Sabbath 8 inch Candlesticks

Sure, we light Menorah candles during the 8 days of Hanukkah. But what about the rest of the 357 days of the year?

With everyone talking about Menorahs on Hanukkah, here’s your chance to throw a curveball and surprise her with a traditional Jewish gift she can use NOT just on Hanukkah, but all – year – long.

And you’re not just getting her any Shabbat candlesticks. You’re getting her Nambé’s hand-polished candlesticks.

If that name (Nambé) rings a bell – it’s because you’ve probably seen their fabulous art displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, or in 20+ other museums around the world.

Now, thanks to you – your wife, hostess or anyone else you choose to get this for this Hanukkah – can host an art exhibit of her own and light Shabbat candles at the same time!

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> and call it a day.

While that’s nice and all, it’s not exactly in the “Hanukkah spirit”, now is it?

You know better than that…

Instead, why don’t you get the woman you love a special Hanukkah Jewelry gift… something that is designed especially for the Jewish festival of lights.

That’s where this breathtaking Menorah + Star of David necklace comes in.

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?

Hanukkah Gift Ideas for Him

We Jewish men also deserve a great gift for Hanukkah, don’t we?

Lucky for you, buying gifts for men is easy. But believe it or not – even big boys like us have feelings. It doesn’t matter whether it’s your husband, boyfriend or even your boss.

As a Jewish man, I can tell you this: we all appreciate a thoughtful Hanukkah gift.

Let me show you a couple of popular Hanukkah presents any man would absolutely LOVE.

Silver Kiddush Cup & Saucer + Golden Highlights Old Jerusalem Arches

Top Gift for Men

Silver Kiddush Cup And Saucer With Golden Highlights Old Jerusalem Arches

There’s no such thing as a Jewish holiday without Kiddush.

Hanukkah is no exception.

Wish you could’ve spent this Hanukkah in the holy city of Jerusalem? Well, this splendid silver Jerusalem Kiddush cup will get you close enough.

The extreme level of detail in this incredible Kiddush Cup is truly admirable. It will make every Kiddush a delightful experience in future Shabbat and holidays.

A classic and very appropriate present for Hanukkah any Jewish man will appreciate.

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum 8 Piece Textured Fountain Kiddush Set

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 has a sip of 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…

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 definitely be done. But we really 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!

Top Gift for Kids

Mensch on a Bench

Now, you get 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.

But hey – it’s a great Hanukkah gift for children – so it damn sure belongs in this section too.

If you’re getting a Hanukkah gift for a toddler – then guess what? Very soon – they will:

  3. Before you know it – they’re graduating from college at the age of 6.

And it’s all thanks to your little customized Hanukkah present!

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum Children’s Train Hanukkah Menorah

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 us adults, when Hanukkah is over, your kid will be able to play with his new Menorah train during the rest of the year, while you’re at work wishing you could join em’.

A one-of-a-kind gift that’ll definitely make your gift stand out from the pack.

Hand Engraved Silver Square Signet Ring

Hand Engraved Silver Square Signet Ring

When people think of “personalization”, what they usually think about slapping someone’s name onto a gift and calling it a day. 

That’s what I call “simple personalization”.

There’s a 2nd kind of personalization – what I call “sophisticated personalization”.

That’s where you personalize a gift to match someone’s character

Take this took this beautiful ring for example.

Instead of simply putting someone’s name on it – you engrave it with a Torah verse of your choice… A Torah verse you know your gift recipient LOVES.

Whether that’s “Shema Yisrael”, “The Traveler’s Prayer”, “You Are My Beloved”… or any of the other meaningful Torah verses you like.

That’s the type of personalization that you get once but lasts forever.

Unique & Cool Hanukkah Gifts

So far, we’ve seen plenty of common Hanukkah gifts.

Now, it’s time for some “uncommon” cool gifts.

Here are some unique & creative Hanukkah gift ideas that’ll make any adult light up like a child (and every child, like a Menorah) this Hanukkah.

Marbled Blue Hanukkah Menorah – Hand Made by Tamara Baskin Art Glass

Top Unique Gift

Marbled Blue Hanukkah Menorah Hand Made By Tamara Baskin Art Glass

Jewish artists are masters at taking beautiful, traditional Jewish symbols and transforming them into a modern piece of art.

Case in point: Tamara Baskin’s stunning glass Menorah

There’s something incredibly captivating about Tamara’s unique blue & white design – even if you just stare it through the screen.

Imagine how it feels like if you light it up. You’ll realize that you tend to “lose yourself” inside the deep, blue & white design.

Let me tell ya – it feels much better than “losing yourself” inside the other blue & white icon on our phones (Facebook…ugh).

And if that’s not enough – Tamara guarantees that this Menorah will last you for life.

Note: You read that right: If this contemporary Menorah doesn’t last you for life, Tamara Baskin gives you a LIFETIME guarantee, no questions asked.

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

Small & Inexpensive Hanukkah Gifts

The good thing Hanukkah is that, well, it’s not Christmas.

This whole Hanukkah gift-giving tradition was popularized in the US in the first place – mostly due to the competition with the fat guy in the red costume.

The truth is – you don’t have to get all these ridiculously expensive gifts and stuff everyone with a bunch of crap they don’t need. Competing with the “Joneses” is a surefire way to carve huge holes in your pockets, and it’s completely unnecessary.

All you need is a few small & inexpensive Hanukkah gifts to celebrate the festival of lights with your friends & family.

And what better way to do that than with this cute Menorah bottle stopper?

Such a simple Hanukkah gift – yet so useful…

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…

Who am I kidding… my eyes STILL light up when I get chocolate gelt for Hanukkah 😀 (unfortunately it doesn’t happen all that often anymore).

And these chocolate gelt coins are even cooler… they come inside a dreidel, as opposed to a tiny little bag. That’s 2 Hanukkah gifts in 1 right there!

The Chosen One Game

The Chosen One Game

At first glance, The Chosen One’s blue and white box seems rather innocent, doesn’t it?

That is until you open it and realize what’s inside: the most inappropriate (and hilarious) Jewish game ever created.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Draw a “typical” Jewish question card
  2. Pair it with an “atypical”, Chutzpah-filled answer card
  3. Show everyone who’s the funniest, wittiest, “OMG-you’re-the-craziest” fella at the holiday table.

The one causing the most drinks to come out of people’s noses – wins!

Care for an example? Behold:

Chosen One Game Example

This is a killer gift for a Hanukkah host/hostess with a great sense of humor (and a KILLER for anyone without any sense of humor). One thing is for sure: guests who attend this Hanukkah dinner – aren’t going to forget it for a very long time.

Did You Know?

The Chosen One donates 10% of its profits to Jewish non-profits and charities. So the moment you get The Chosen One Game, you simultaneously make your first Tzedakah contribution for the new year.

If you’re shopping for a Kosher gift basket for a Jewish friend who has a soft spot for chocolate (don’t we all?) – then you found it. 

Meet the gift basket that carries chocolates, cookies, wafers and much more weighing up to 14 pounds. This basket here is the undisputed king of Hanukkah chocolate gifts and will be the reason your friend will call you up after the holiday to join him on his morning runs (you know, to get rid of all the “holiday weight”).

Gift Basket Village Eight Days Of Hanukkah Gift Basket

Hanukkah is 8 days long. So you’d want to get someone a gift that’ll “keep them busy” for the entire 8 days of Hanukkah…

And just as this gift basket’s name suggests – this one will definitely do the trick.

Themed with the traditional Hanukkah “geld” and rich with gourmet Chocolate chip cookies, Raspberry Chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate sea salt cashews, chocolate-covered blueberries, butter toffee peanuts, Florida mix and a bunch of other goodies.

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 everyone! 🙂

Spread the love ❤️
