The Nosher’s Official Gift Guide for Hanukkah 2018

From pastrami to challah leggings, we found the the best Jewish food-themed gifts around.

I love giving gifts. Who doesn’t? So if you’re still shopping for that special Jewish food lover in your life, here are a few of our favorite Hanukkah gifts.

1. Challah Leggings

I’m not embarrassed to admit that I have Chai Tide Apparel’s challah skirt. And if you need a gift for a challah lover, these challah leggings are truly epic.

2. Fancy Hanukkah Gelt

This is not the Hanukkah gelt you find in the holiday aisle of the supermarket. These days, there are so many unique and artisanal kinds of gelt to choose from, whether it’s an enormous fortune cookie filled with Hanukkah gelt or gelt made with fair-trade chocolate! Here are some of our favorites.


3. Matzah Ball Baby Onesie

All of Unkosher Market’s apparel is witty, trendy and uber-Jewish. But if you’ve got a delicious baby needing some digs, this “Little Matzah Ball” onesie is just the cutest.

4. Sew-On Bagel and Lox Patch

I hear that fun patches are all the rage these days. And even if they weren’t, I would still want this Bagel-and-Lox Sew-On Patch from The Jewish Museum.

5. Pastrami Subscription

Yes, Katz’s will send you a “seasonal meat selection” and basically why would you give anything else other than New York’s finest cured deli meat??

6. Rainbow Bagel Clutch Purse

This is definitely a big ticket item, but if the person you love is obsessed with rainbow bagels and Instagram, then you’ve got to show some love and get this epic rainbow bagel clutch.

7. Pickle Mug

Whether you’re kind of a big dill or you just think Rudolph disguised as a pickle is hilarious (cause it is), a pickle mug is a gift that keeps on giving.

8. Gourmet Bagel Stand

For your friend or mom or uncle who just loves hosting bagel brunches, this bagel serving board from Uncommon Goods is everything (bagels).

9. Mah Jongg Tile Soap

Ok, I realize this isn’t FOOD necessarily. But we know there is a strong correlation between Jewish food lovers and Mah Jongg. So we figured you (or your Aunt Ruth) probably need these mini soaps from Amazon.

10. Make a Donation!

Feeling like you’ve got enough stuff? Make a donation to an organization like Mazon, cause it’s a super Jewish thing to do to do a mitzvah and help feed others.

Keep on Noshing
