Hanukkah Gift Baskets
Although Hanukkah may not be one of the most popular gift giving holidays, it can still be a good opportunity to let somebody know that you are thinking of them by giving them a Hanukkah gift basket. A Hanukkah gift basket can make a great gift since it contains all sorts of items that can make the holidays more fun.
These days a Hanukkah gift basket is a popular gift item, which is often bought by people who have Jewish friends or associates. A Hanukkah gift basket can help you show that you respect other people's culture and holidays. Some types of Hanukkah gift baskets contain food, toys, or gift items while other types of gift baskets will offer everything needed to celebrate the holiday, including kosher foods and candles.
Some types of Hanukkah gift baskets will offer eight gifts for each of the eight nights of the holiday. Like most Jewish holidays, Hanukkah is associated with its own special recipes and traditions. Traditionally, fried food and dairy food are eaten during Hanukkah, so it may be a thoughtful idea to add some of these items to a gift basket if possible. Some of these could include soofganiot (jelly doughnuts), latkes or livivot (potato pancakes) chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil, colorful candles, cookies, apple sauce, olive oil, cupcakes, tickets for activities, games and toys, books, jewelry, teddy bears, menorahs and Hanukkah gelt (money).
You can easily customize a Hanukkah gift basket by yourself or have one professionally made for you. If you are not sure what items you should put into a Hanukkah gift basket, or if you don't really know too much about the holiday, it's probably a good idea to buy a pre-made basket so you don't go wrong. You could also do a little research into the holiday to get some ideas of your own what to add to a Hanukkah gift basket. Above all, a Hanukkah gift basket is a great way to let people you care about and let them know that you are thinking about them during the holidays.
