15 Fun Hanukkah Accessories That Make Great Gifts For The Holiday
Often, the holiday season feels synonymous with Christmas — sometimes, it's easy to forget that not everyone celebrates. Hanukkah, for example, is a festival of lights for Jewish people during which gifts are exchanged over eight nights. Hanukkah themed accessories make the perfect gifts for any or all of these days — as you'll see below, they're all super cute.
Better still, these accessories can be worn for the entire winter season to celebrate the Jewish faith. There are dozens of pieces of symbolism in the Jewish faith, from the traditional cuisine to the menorah to the dreidels. And if you're not Jewish, these gifts don't have to be lost on you: Gift them to a Jewish friend to show a sense of understanding, respect, and love during this season. After all the holidays are about giving, aren't they?
If the power of the season doesn't compel you, keep it simple: Who doesn't love a themed accessory, just in a general sense — epecially when that accessory is a latke potato pancake ring? From simple, elegant pieces of jewelry to kitschy, vintage memorabilia, this list has you covered not just for your Hanukkah needs, but personal style choices too. Go on and invest in a little something something that represents your love of the holiday.
