No one likes getting boring gifts (looking at you, same old scarf that you forget to wear every winter). If you’re looking to add some spunk to your loved ones’ lives, we created this Hanukkah gift guide for kitschy Jewish stuff. Because why wouldn’t you want an elephant menorah or a Yiddish-speaking bowl?
While everyone has different tastes and senses of humor, there’s something for everyone (and every budget) on this list. I hope you like them just as much as I do. (There’s even pet gifts, so your Jewish cat or dog won’t feel left out!)
*And remember, the first night of Hanukkah this year is December 6*
