In the Hebrew language, “Hanukkah” means dedication. As dedicated as you might be to shopping for the upcoming holiday, finding the perfect Hanukkah gift can present a challenge for even the most seasoned Hanukkah shopper.
Shopping for the right Hanukkah gifts just got a whole lot easier. When you feel like you’ve run out of options buying the same gifts year after year, the TraditionsJewishGifts.com Hanukkah gift-buying guide will help you see the light.
The festival of lights is celebrated for eight days and nights to remember the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem after the Jews defeated the Syrian-Greeks so long ago. Of course, for many families Hanukkah isn’t just a time to remember — it’s a time to make memories and part of that tradition is through gift giving.
This year, Hanukkah begins on the eve of Tuesday, December 20th. Of course, you’ll want to have your gifts for Hanukkah picked out long before then. With this Hanukkah gift buying guide, by Traditions Jewish Gifts you’ll be able to wrap up shopping for your Hanukkah gifts.
Decorations are an essential part of any festivity and there are plenty from which to choose. Topping the list of great Hanukkah decorations that set the mood are Happy Chanukah light strings, banner decorations and Star of David decorations. Even if you aren’t hosting the holidays, you likely know someone who would appreciate decorations as gifts for Chanukah.
Of course, Hanukkah is all about observing important traditions such as lighting the Menorah, playing the dreidel game and enjoying the Hanukkah feast. Practicing these traditions will be even more special when your friends and family receive Hanukkah gifts from the heart.
When it comes to menorahs, one size and style does not fit all. Customized menorahs make great gifts for loved ones. Whether it’s a ballet slippers menorah for your little dancer or an antique bronze menorah for the collector in your life, there is something for everyone.
For that extra something, you may also want to gift Hanukkah candles, which come in a diverse array of shapes and colors. I question whether the next sentence belongs in this paragraph – I think it should be the last sentence in the paragraph before this one. Menorahs are gifts that will keep on giving for years to come.
