Hanukkah Gift Guide 2012: For the Childless Aunt & Uncle

When it comes to gift giving, kids are easy–shiny toys, or even just the box the toy came in, seem to do the trick. But what about these mysterious creatures known as young adults? The young and childless aunts and uncles of the world do a great job of kvelling over your kids, so pay them back with some of these amazing gifts from ModernTribe.



If the young man or woman has a very ironic sense of humor, they’ll definitely rock these holiday sweaters–Spinster Hanukkah Sweater ($65) and Spinmaster Hanukkah Sweater ($65). It’s the Hanukkah edition of the “ugly Christmas sweater” and yes, it will be a hit at parties.



For most girls, you can hardly go wrong with jewelry, and this Hamsa Stainless Pendant ($38) is the perfect accessory for any auntie. The delicately designed pendant hangs on a sterling silver chain.

For the man with the Jew-fro, we’ve got just the mug for him, designed by Jonathan Adler ($28). Pair it with Kosher Kurls Leave-In Conditioner ($18) and you’ve got quite the gift set.



For something funky, consider these Red Distortion Candlesticks ($48.00). They’re a little bit Dr. Seuss, a little bit Shabbat, and very very red.



If you’ve got a chef on your hands, order these Babushka Russian Stacking Doll Measuring Cups ($12.00). These cute cups are functional space savers and a great deal!



Don’t know if the aunt or uncle is a beer guy or a whino? Have no fear! You can’t go wrong with this multi-tasking glass, the Winestein Stemware Mug ($20). Cheers!



If the childless uncle is looking to meet his childless counterpart, a little self-promoting could never hurt. This Nice Jewish Boy T-Shirt ($26) gets right to the point.



Finally, consider setting your childless aunt up with a Nice Jewish Guys Calendar ($15.95) for 2013. If nothing else, you’ll provide her a picture of a mentsch to oggle each month.
