Hanukkah gift guide from my favorite small Jewish businesses and creators in New York City
Hanukkah is almost here! I curated a gift guide from other New York City-based Jewish creators and businesses ... and yes ... I included my own. And, these don't have to be gifts for other people. Some of these products are great to get for yourself! I've listed ideas for schmoozers, cooks, food lovers, fashionistas, and more!
For Jews who love to argue and schmooze
My Mitzvah or Shandah game is $20 and is great for friends new and old and families with kids 12/13+. It's been getting rave reviews from all ages. This game is also available in West Side Judaica in NYC.
For the Jew who needs a little Hanukkah help
Give the gift of a Hanukkah guide! This book has everything you need for the holiday all in one place for each of the 8 nights — the story of Hanukkah, fun facts, the prayers, how to light the menorah, cartoons, recipes, and more. It's appropriate for kids and adults.
For the proud, fashionable Jew
Support female designer and entrepreneur Ariel Tidhar, who makes eye-catching, proud Jewish jewelry and Judaica. Every time I wear my dreidel earrings, I get compliments.
For the colorful Jew
I love the Susan Alexandra Judaica collection. And if you feel like splurging, check out her adorable beaded bags and jewelry.
For the Jew who loves to cook
For the Jew who loves to eat
If you don't feel like baking, get Jake Cohen's black and white cookies and other treats delivered from Goldbelly, order Fatty Sunday's Hanukkah chocolate-covered pretzels, or get your favorite holiday treats from Zabar's.
For Jews who love to represent with merch
Menschions has lots of festive clothing for everyone from babies to adults, Gefilteria just released a new hat (they also have a cookbook and workshops — and their recipe is in my Hanukkah book), and Libby Walker's podcast now has relatable merch.
And here's a free gift from me, a fun Hanukkah playlist on Spotify!
