Does the world need another gift guide? Probably not. Are we going to bring you one with a distinctly Kveller point of view? Of course!

For the friend with too many the perfect amount of succulents: a terrarium (!!) shaped like a dreidel (!!)

For the Nora Ephron stan: This romance novel — a gender-swapped retelling of When Harry Met Sally — or this nonfiction deep dive into the making of Nora’s big three films. Or, maybe they need this hat. 

For the vinyl record snob who now has a small child: an album fit for the next generation of music snobs.

For the kid (or adult 🙋‍♀️) who got into making friendship bracelets during the Eras tour: A Hanukkah bead kit

For the person who is always in search of the perfect pastrami sandwich: a delightful book about Jewish delis

For the friend who wants to elevate their Hanukkah decorations: toile placemats that prove that Hanukkah can be classy.

For the child who needs something to do with their hands: the original fidget (still a hit with the third graders we know!), a clay kit, or a felt sewing kit.

For anyone who needs more whimsy in their kitchen: anything from Israeli design duo Ototo. From the Splatypus jar scraper to the Gracula garlic smasher to the sponge bed, we’re obsessed with everything.

For the proud grandparent: a pin that gives them permission to kvell or hats from Israeli chef Alon Shaya’s two restaurants, Saba and Safta. 

For anyone who loves Jack Black as much as we do: This sticker. 

For the family looking to switch up family game night: A card game that can take hours or minutes, depending on how many rounds you want to play. 

For the person who has everything except a place to put their bagel money: a place to put their bagel money

For the Jewish mom: Hebrew letter studs with the first letter of her kids’ names (you can mix and match letters, and they’re small enough to wear with another small stud in a second hole.)

For the chic Jewish baby: a chic Jewish sweatshirt
