Are you looking for the perfect gift for Rosh Hashanah or Hanukkah? There are plenty of possibilities, but here you will find a few Jewish holiday gift ideas for that special person. Rosh Hashanah is the holiday that brings in the New Year. It is celebrated on the first and second days of the Jewish month of Tishrei. This always happens sometime between the middle of September and early October. Any successful Rosh Hashanah gift will be full of Jewish significance. One of these is the decorative honey container. This is because honey and other sweet foods are traditionally eaten at the beginning of the holiday evening meal to show the family’s hope for a sweet or good New Year. Children normally get new clothes as a Jewish holiday gift for Rosh Hashanah.

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over their enemies, the consecration of the new altar in the Temple that followed, and the miracle where the minimal amount of pure oil for light miraculously lasted for eight days. Because of this, Hanukkah lasts eight days. To celebrate, candles are lit and special donuts are eaten. This holiday always happens sometime in December. A traditional Jewish holiday gift for Hanukkah is the dreidel. This is a special four-sided top for luck games. Another favored Jewish holiday gift is money, but not paper money. It should be in coin form, even in chocolate coin form, to enable dreidel playing.

If you want to go a less traditional route a young Jewish girl might like a Gali Girl doll. Very similar to the popular American Girl dolls, they are the very first Jewish dolls of their kind and make a perfect Jewish holiday gift. They come with accessories like Jewish star jewelry and Shabbat play items. You could also buy a wooden Shabbat play set for a Jewish holiday gift. It comes with two candle sticks, a Kiddush cup, two challahs, and a challah knife and will give your kids everything they need to share in the Shabbat traditions. It comes with a drawstring bag to store your items in when they are not being used.

Another great gift idea is the wooden Hanukkah play set. It comes with a menorah, nine candles, a frying pan, two latkes, a dreidel, and a wooden Chanukah gelt. This is a safe way for your children to “light” the candles and role play during the holiday. This Jewish holiday gift also comes with a handy storage bag.

You could always get youngsters books on the Jewish holiday that you want to commemorate. There are many available and you can do a search on the Internet to find them or go to your local book store and ask the clerk to order them for you if they aren’t available. Regardless of the child’s age these make a great Jewish holiday gift.
