3. Judaica To Round Out a Jewish Home
Whether the newlyweds are looking forward to hosting Passover seders and need a seder plate, like this unique Israeli one by Yair Emmanuel, or they're going to be having friends and family over for Hanukkah and could use some extra menorahs, now is a great time to help them build up their Judaica collection.
This crystal Hanukkah menorah is elegant and sophisticated, and this Copper finish menorah has a more classic air. Or, if you give a glass Rosh Hashanah honey dish, it can double as a sugar bowl the rest of the year!
A couple can store their Sukkot etrog in style in this Yair Emanuel wooden etrog box. A havdalah set, like this silver-plated ceramic one is something they can use each week to say goodbye to Shabbat.
Finally, a mezuzah like this gorgeous lovebirds one, completes any Jewish home. As newlyweds set up their lives together, they'll need multiple mezuzot, so don't worry about duplicates.
Filled with brand-new dishes and cookware, a newlyweds? kitchen is a great place to experiment with recipes. We recommend giving both classic cookbooks and some new takes on kosher cooking, which can be great gifts for a couple looking to develop their recipe repertoire.
The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen offers the whole megillah of kosher cooking, with expert tips from a seasoned chef. And for a more contemporary twist, The Modern Menu is a great find. Sections are categorized by flavors and textures, rather than by courses.
For a couple that's looking to expand their soup options, Soup: A Kosher Collection has more than 100 recipes to choose from. And you can help them step up their pareve dessert recipes with The Kosher Baker: Over 160 Dairy-free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy. Finally, you don't have to be vegetarian to appreciate Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World. Giving a newlywed couple a few cookbooks is essentially handing them the tools for successful, enjoyable meals for years to come.
