Mia, an Outblush reader, pointed out that Hanukkah (Hannukah? Chanukah?) doesn't get much gift roundup love this time of year, and we wanted to amend that. Without further ado, we present eight gifts for the eight nights of Hanukkah!
LUSH Bathtime Favorites Bath Bomb Set ($43) - We were going to included LUSH's Better Than A Blintz Hanukkah Bath Bomb Set in this roundup, but it's sold out online - you may still be able to find it in stores. So we figured that this set of nine yummy-scented classic Bath Bombs would be a fab Hanukkah gift, too - use one for every night of Hanukkah, then save an extra one for a rain y day!
Ahava "Love" Pendant - Sweet and simple, the Hebrew letters for the word "love" are crafted in 14k gold and dangle from a 16" pendant. It's modeled after the famous 1976 sculpture by Robert Indiana featuring the same word in 13 foot high steel letters.
No Limit Texas Dreidel Game ($19) - What do you get when you cross Yahtzee, poker, and dreidels? This. As the item description so aptly says, "Let my people go... all in!" We guarantee it will bring a whole new dimension to poker night.
Flexus Menorah ($125) - Designed by a father & daughter, this cut glass set can be used as a menorah or broken apart into individual candleholders to be used throughout the year as a sparkling tableside accent.
David's Cookies Assorted Mini Cheesecakes ($35) - Who doesn't like a nice mini cheesecake? This gift set includes six 5oz cheesecakes made from fresh ingredients and includes two of each flavor: classic New York cheesecake, black forest, and cappuccino.
The Body Shop Black Velvet Apricot Celebrations Gift Set ($11 on sale) - Yes, blue is one of the traditional Hanukkah colors, but what really attracted us to this gift set is the dreamy scent of black velvet apricot: fruity, sweet, and densely dark. The set includes body lotion, bath & shower nectar, and soap.
Hebrew Tikkun Ring ($40) - Tikkun is the Hebrew idea of healing and transforming the world through your own generous & good actions. This sterling silver ring has the Hebrew for Tikkun engraved on the outside, and the English alphabet translation on the inside.
A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking ($18) - We're having serious cravings for the recipes in this book, like Pomegranate and Sour Cherry Mandelbrot, Mock Chestnut Torte, and Caramel Matzoh Crunch. A must-gift for any foodie on your list.
