For adults, who desire a more authentic menorah lighting experience, an oil based menorah makes for a great present for all Jewish days of Hanukkah gifts. You can also gift them menorahs that have tiny and beautiful glass containers containing olive oil and pre-made wicks.
The wonderful festival of Hanukkah also brings joy & entertainment with the historic yet immensely popular game of Jewish Dreidel. A Dreidel is a spinning top with four sides having Hebrew letters ‘gimel’, ‘shin’, ‘heh’, and nun’ on each side, meaning “A great miracle happened”.
Jewish Dreidels are available in various styles and designs and can be easily bought at almost every toy store or Judaic shop. Nowadays, these can be purchased online as well and are great presents for Jewish days of Chanukah gifts. The best thing about Dreidels is that they are enjoyed by people of all ages and is an ideal game gift for families to spend hours of quality time together.
Another great thing about Hanukkah festival that makes it one of the most-awaited festivals of the year is the mouthwatering food it offers. Cheese and olive oil are the prime ingredients that are used to cook delicious Hanukkah foods and treats. Homemade Potato pancakes or latkes are one of the most popular Hanukkah recipes and are also ideal presents on Jewish days of Hanukkah gifts. Challah, Brisket and Hazelnut cookies are some of the other delicious foods that the festival offers.
Since, Hanukkah is also known as the ‘festival of lights’, people like to decorate their homes with artificial lights, “Happy Hanukkah” banners, animated Hanukkah displays and other decoration items and if presented with such an item, makes it an ideal option for the Jewish days of Hanukkah gifts. Another great decoration item for Hanukkah is the Hanukkah bush, especially for kids who will cherish decorating the Hanukkah bush with tiny lights and colorful papers as they often miss having a Christmas tree counterpart on this festival.
If you ask kids what the festival of Hanukkah means to them, they would say ‘gifts’. Children especially are very keen to receive a present on each day of Hanukkah. However, it is equally important that your kids respect the tradition of this important festival. On Jewish days of Chanukah gifts, give them presents that not only make them happy but also make them understand the true meaning of this beautiful festival.
