Put on your yarmulke and dig out the menorah—it's time to celebrate Hanukkah! Or, if you don't partake in the Jewish festival of lights, it's time to get a Hanukkah gift for your friends and/or family who do. This year, Hanukkah begins on the evening of December 18 and ends on the evening of December 26, 2022.
Whether you’ve been dishing out Hanukkah gifts your whole life or you’re doing it for the first time, you don’t have to fret. Besides, giving gifts during Hanukkah is a fairly a new tradition, says Rachel Scheinerman, editor of My Jewish Learning.
Aside from its religious affiliation, when it comes to gift-giving Hanukkah is just like any other holiday. And, while you definitely can get them something Jewish-related, it’s not obligatory. Plenty of your Jewish friends will appreciate receiving a fun, thoughtful, and unique secular gift that's relevant to their interests or hobbies, like cooking or reading.
