When Easter or Christmas roll around, I get a bit envious of all the adorable bunny or reindeer things that adorn the shelves of stores and pages of magazines. Where is all the cute Jewish stuff? I think we can all agree: There are only so many dreidel-shaped platters that a Jewish family needs.
But the landscape is changing, and there are more and more Jewish-owned companies, sellers on Etsy and big name companies, too, that are producing really clever and sophisticated Jewish holiday decor.
I recently scoured the internet and found five adorable apple-themed items that will bring some sweet holiday spirit to your home, or make a perfect gift for someone who is hosting you. Do you need them? Nah, definitely not. But they are fun and cute, so check them out.
They had me at Kate Spade on this one. In addition to being a cookie jar, which would be adorable on anyone’s kitchen counter all year, this would also make a fun center piece on your holiday table. Let me know if you need my address so you can send me one, too.
I cannot think of a frying pan one needs less than this eye-catching, silver one shaped like an apple. But I am dying to have this sit atop my stovetop, just for decoration, never to be used.
I love Jewish-themed candles, no shame, and unlike that gorgeous apple frying pan, this candle from Modern Tribe (that I already have and love) is probably something you will actually use. Plus, who doesn’t want their house to smell like apples and honey all autumn long?
Perhaps the most practical item on my list, these hand pie molds are perfect to make a quick and adorable apple pie for dessert for Rosh Hashanah, or for when you go apple picking and don’t know what in the heck to do with all those apples you picked.
If you are the hostess with the mostess and really want to upstage Aunt Sheila or Jessica from down the street with your next-level tablescape, these elegant apple dinner plates from Target fit the bill.
