There are a handful of cultural items, terms, foods and the like associated with Hanukkah, including of course, dreidels, menorahs, sufganiyhot, chocolate gelt, latkas, and the 'festival of lights'.

But not much else.

And when it comes to shopping for this holiday, the choices available are even more scarce. But not anymore.

As our favourite of Jewish holidays draws nearer, Shalom Life is proud to continue with our Essential Hanukkah Gift Guide: 8 crazy nights of amazing gift ideas, and 8 crazy nights of free giveaways, poised to make this year's holiday a bit easier, a bit less stressful, and a bit lighter on your wallet.

For a wide selection of interesting, unique, and enjoyable gift ideas, check out Days One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six.


These aforementioned gift ideas are eclectic in style and nature, ranging from latke-themed bibs, Matisyahu sing-a-long apps for kids, hilariously Jewish T-shirts, delicious macarons, fine artworks, and more. But just in case you still feel like we're missing on something, just in case there's a gift idea out there for Hanukkah we have yet to cover, for Day 7 of the Guide, we decided to recommend an online store whose products are so versatile, wide-ranging, and fun, you'll be able to find gifts for your three-year-old niece, your scandalous next-door neighbour, your dimwitted best friend, and your delightfully charming grandpapa, all while perusing within the confines of a single URL address.

Yes, thanks to Traditions Jewish Gifts (a Jewish online Wal Mart of sorts), you can find both religious and non-religious items, jewellery, mezuzahs, holiday gifts like dreidels and menorahs, picture frames, kitchen gifts, wedding gifts, dolls, the list goes on and on. And, as the company's Wendy Silver-Gordon tells me, there's even a 'When Holidays Collide' collection that 'has been getting everyone excited'.

We're pretty excited for Thanksgivukkah, too.

Looks like it's going to be gifts-a-plenty this holiday season.

GIVEAWAY: As part of the Essential Gift Guide, Traditions Jewish Gifts is pleased to offer a $36 gift certificate to ANYTHING available in their store (a word of advice to the winner, leave yourself at least an hour or two to browse, as there are a plethora of options available). To enter, share this story via Facebook and/or Twitter and LIKE both Traditions Jewish Gifts and Shalom Life on Facebook. Then send an email to contests@shalomlife.com with the headline TRADITION. Happy Holidays!

Make sure to check back here tomorrow for more gift ideas and free giveaways as we move forward with our 8-day Essential Hanukkah Gift Guide.


Traditions Jewish Gifts is the online extension the family-owned Traditions Judaica Gifts store at the Festival Market in South Florida's Pompano Beach. As Silver-Gordon writes, "Those of you who've visited our store know that we offer one of the largest collections of Judaica gifts in the world. However, what you may not know is that our business is founded on the same Jewish traditions we celebrate with our customers daily."
