We asked Kveller mamas what they wanted for Mother’s Day–both material items and those more elusive wishes. Here is what they came up with.
Last minute gift-givers, take note!
Things you can buy:
1. This Ring.
I have been swooning over this ring for so long. It’s a total splurge and I would never actually ask for it but I think it is so sweet and perfect.
2. Gym Gift Certificate.
I want a gift certificate to the workout place of my choice. I have finally found a place I love to work out–and have lost 15 lbs of baby weight in the past two months! I’d like to get a gift certificate there so I can get more classes, more endorphin rushes, and even more ’healthier and energetic me,’ which ends up being a gift for myself and my family.

It’s never too early to start prepping for Passover. There is an endless list of food and Judaica items you will need in order to create the perfect seder. These things are not on it.
If you are smart, you will bail on the sh*tstorm that is Passover planning by attending a friend or relative’s seder. And when you arrive–spouse and kiddies in tow–you should bring a gift. Sort of a “thank you for hosting”/ “sorry for the inevitable toddler-induced grape juice stains on your white table cloth” kind of gift.
We can help. These Passover products range from funny, to gross, to just plain ridiculous. They are absolutely unnecessary, but fun nonetheless, and may bring a little levity to an otherwise solemn holiday. Read the rest of this entry →

In case you haven’t noticed, Rosh Hashanah and the rest of those High Holidays are coming up very, very quickly (September 16th, to be exact). If you’re hosting a family get together or just want to spruce up your home decor in time for the New Year, there are plenty of goodies that will do the trick. We’ve teamed up with our favorite Judaica shop, Modern Tribe, to bring you the best Rosh Hashanah gear around. Best of all: Part of every purchase goes to support Kveller.
One thing that makes Rosh Hashanah special is that even the challah gets a little jazzed up–it’s customary to eat round challah to represent the cycle of the year and the circle of life and all that good stuff. If you’d like to display your round challah in style, check out this beautiful wood tray: Read the rest of this entry →
