For Hanukkah this year we're focusing on the rebel in the family . . . Dear Old Dad. While he may seem to be under Mom's thumb, deep down he has a heart of a Maccabee, the Jewish army whose victorious revolt led to the Festival of Lights.
Whether it's the first night or the last, the Hammer Bottle Opener ($10) and Union of Jewish Handymen T-Shirt ($24.95) are perfect gifts to honor Dad's hammer like ways. Add a Set of 4 He'Brew Beer Pint Glasses ($26.95) to keep smashing the stereotype that Jews don’t drink.
Artori Design Studio's Action Bookends ($46) will certainly recognize Pop's 007 style. Of course, if Dad is really the kind of guy who likes to run with scissors, then the Butter Dish by Jonathan Adler ($58) will let him dine with his shoe on the table.
With a pair of Sterling Half-Shekel Cufflinks ($99) and a Yiddish Proverb Money Clip ($16.99) in his pocket, your dad will be as gangster as Arnold Rothstein as he slips you some gambling gelt to play No Limit Texas Dreidel.
