Though it might feel like we just got through the High Holidays, Hanukkah is just around the corner! This year, the Festival of Lights begins on November 28th — yes, Thanksgiving weekend — and given that we’re still in a pandemic, we totally get it if you’re trying to make Hanukkah a little extra special this year.
Of course, especially with vaccines not yet available for children under 12, safety is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. If you’re looking for a fun yet practical Hanukkah gift for your loved ones, consider a festive, Hanukkah-themed face mask! While we have already found a variety of Jewish face masks that we LOVE, these eight masks are perfect for getting into the Hanukkah spirit this season. One for each night!
1. Tie-Dye Menorah Mask (Etsy, 14.99)
Tie-dye has been a pandemic staple for many of us, so why not continue this trend for the Festival of Lights? This blue tie-dye cotton mask is washable and comfy, plus it features a sparkly rhinestone menorah (who can resist?). It also has a sewn-in filter, adjustable ear loops and a nose wire for custom-like fit.
2. “Dreidel Time” Rainbow Art Mask (Redbubble, $10)
Add a pop of color to your Hanukkah blues and silvers with this washable dreidel-print mask that brings red, green and gold to the mix. With elastic ear loops and a snug fit, this mask is basically a piece of art you can wear on your face.
3. Hanukkah Puns Masks (Etsy, $5 each)

5. Dinosaur Menorah Mask ($11.95, Etsy)
