19 Hanukkah Gifts That Will Make You Wish the Holiday Was Longer Than 8 Nights
Hanukkah is coming up, and our holiday routine is as follows: after we've lit the menorah and eaten our weight in latkes, it's time for presents. Different families do things differently, with some exchanging presents on all eight nights, and others only gifting on the first or last night of the holiday, but whatever your tradition, we're here to help find the presents your friends and family will love.
These 19 presents are exactly what we'd like to receive this Hanukkah. Whether you want a new menorah, some fun wellness products, beauty gifts, pretty hoop earrings, or just copious amounts of babka, we've got you covered. There are some gifts that are great for new couples or homewoners, some that the entire Hanukkah party can take part in, and others that are perfect little presents, because eight nights is a lot of quality presents! Plus, all these picks are great things to send to family members near and far, so whoever you're celebrating with this year, be sure to send them something sweet and sentimental. Keep on reading to shop our picks, and happy Hanukkah!
