It’s that time of the year! Hanukkah is rapidly approaching, which means it’s time to get those great gifts you will be giving to friends, family, and loved ones. We have put together a guide with the best Hanukkah gifts you can get this year. So, without further ado, here are the top Hanukkah gift ideas for 2020.
The menorah is a traditional Hanukkah gift that every home celebrating Hanukkah needs. You can get a classic bronze menorahto keep to a more conventional style. If you like the legacy look but are searching for something a bit more colorful, then a menorah sporting different shades of blue with a glossy finish may be more to your liking. There is also an ornate option if you would like to have your menorah bejeweled and looking like a peacock. Finally, if you want to try something funkier and modern, a menorah made of multicolored anodized aluminum is a great option.
You’re going to need some candles for that menorah. You can get a set of blue and white Hanukkah candles that have been made in Tzfat, which is an ancient Old City of Israel, nestled within the spiritual center of the city. These will beautifully illuminate your menorah throughout Hanukkah. Another, more colorful, option is a set of multicolored Hanukkah candles.
What fun is Hanukkah without a dreidel? An extraordinary 925 sterling silver dreidel with brilliantly colorful Roman glass is a superb choice. When we say Roman glass, we mean it is literally from ancient Rome 2,000 years ago. This glass has an exclusive colorful layer covering it due to a chemical reaction that occurred due to it being buried in the ground for so long. This is a truly exceptional version of a traditional Hanukkah gift.
Israeli Olive Oil
Israel has been producing olive oil for a very long time. Today, there are still remnants of ancient and massive stone olive presses throughout Israel. Olives have been a part of the region’s culture since before the Hebrews even reached the area and made it their home. Israeli olive oil is some of the highest quality in the world, making it something that could even be considered to be a traditional Hanukkah gift.
Increasing the merriment of Hanukkah with a glass of wine is a time-honored tradition, making Israeli wine one of the best Hanukkah gift ideas. If you enjoy red wine, then Vitkin Winery has an excellent dry red wine aged for ten months in French oak barrels, straight from Upper Galilee. If white wine is more to your liking, Vitkin Winery also makes a delightful dry white wine that also comes from Upper Galilee.
Natural Israel Cosmetic Kit
Self-care is something everyone will benefit from. That’s why you should consider one of the Hanukkah gifts you give people be a Dead Sea skincare kit. AHAVA’s mineral botanic body lotion trio kit will moisturize and revitalize skin, including hands, feet, and the entire body. The hydrating and replenishing Dead Sea minerals and natural plant extracts will provide smooth and radiant skin.
Evil Eye Bracelet
The “evil eye” has been used as a symbol to ward off evil since before recorded history. An evil eye bracelet makes a great gift idea for Hanukkah, for men or women. You can go more luxurious with a 925 sterling silver evil eye bracelet. Alternatively, you can get a red leather evil eye bracelet with the eye being made of 925 sterling silver that includes the five metal motifs (gold, silver, copper, tin, and lead according to the Kabbalah).
These Hanukkah gifts will bring joy and happiness to anyone you give them to. Now that you have some excellent Hanukkah gift ideas to ponder, get started on your holiday shopping today!
