In old times, a gelt or a small amount of money was given to children during Hanukkah. Nowadays, many Jews have expanded the gelt-giving tradition to gift-giving. This is probably due to the fact that both Hanukkah and Christmas are celebrated the same time each year. These days, gift-giving is no longer restricted to kids. The tradition of gift-giving brings family and friends closer together and add more fun to Hanukkah celebration.

  1. A Hanukkah related gift is nice. You can buy a beautiful Hanukkah Menorah or special dreidels. You can also wrap up some Jewish books and CDs or opt for kosher products. Lots of Hanukkah gifts can be bought online.
  2. Hanukkah gift baskets are readily available in supermarkets during this time. Stuff your gift basket with baked goodies, scented candles, fruits and kosher wine.
  3. Keep a list of gifts that your family members and friends want to receive on Hanukkah. This will make shopping easier for you.
  4. Plan out how your family will organize the gift-giving. Make this activity a fun-filled one.
  5. It is also important to give tzedakah (charity) during Hanukkah. Organize this activity with your family.
