Adam Sandler summed up Hanukkah the best when he belted out “Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.” Any one of these presents will guarantee that your Jewish kid is not wishing for a Christmas tree:
While one little piggy went to market and another stayed home, this piggy named Baxter decided he wanted to become Kosher. Now that’s certainly a story to get tickled over. The Kosher Piggy Gift Set ($39.00) includes the hardcover copy of Baxter, the Pig Who Wanted to Be Kosher, signed by author Laurel Snyder; Baxter Juggling Kosher Pickles T-Shirt; and a Baxter Shabbat coloring page
Shalom Sesame T-Shirts ($26.00) are the perfect gift for any tot that’s a triple threat - Funny, Cute and Jewish. Choose between Cookie Monster "Nosh", Oscar The Grouch "Oy Vey", Elmo "Mini Mensch", and Zoe "B is For Bubelah,"
Even if on the 6th night you give your child a pair of socks, a pack of Hanukkah Jewish Silly Bands ($5.95 for 24 100% silicone bands that are well-made unlike others we have seen) will insure that it is “fun-akkah.”

Taking an innovative approach to Hanukkah doesn’t mean downloading a menorah-lighting-app to your iPhone. Keep tradition burning with these modern interpretations of menorahs for your home:
Areaware improves an ancient design by integrating a tray to their Wrought Iron Menorah ($150) that catches the candle drippings. I love this menorah because the lines are sleek, simple and modern but the heaftiness makes it feel like a barn-shed tool in your hand. Very manly.
Peacocks are a hot motif this year. Jonathan Adler’s Peacock Menorah ($120) will give you something to strut about: either you’ve given the best gift at the party or you’ve got the finest menorah on the block. (Pictured with our candles.)
Designed in Israel, handmade from resin in a Bulgarian fair-trade women's work group, the Funky Menorah by Lalo Treasures ($98) will fill all eight crazy nights with sparkle and flair.
Upgrade your menorah lighting experience. Use modern, tubular, drip-less candles like these above that we gifted to Jonathan Adler ($14). Lose the free matches from the diner, light up with a bang with Pistolight by Sooda Mayer ($10) or go old style but in style with Jonathan Adler's Pipe Match Holder and Strike!
