With Hanukkah just around the corner, it’s time to dig up some gifts for your friends and family. Lucky for you, we’ve scoured the Jewniverse for the funniest, wackiest, and smartest Jewish gifts around. Check it:
First: Doll Yourself Up
From ugly Hanukkah sweaters ($60-$65) and Manischewitz Onesies ($18) to gelt boxers ($14) and novelty beard and payis sets ($5.99), we’ve got everything you need to keep your friends and family guessing: Hasid or Hipster?
Next: But What Will You Eat?
There’s obviously too much in this category for the four slots below, but you can start with the gorgeous new Jerusalem: A Cookbook ($20.26) by the Israeli-Palestinian wonder-duo, and by perusing Modern Tribe’s Kosher Kitchen Collection for an eclectic collection of goods. And if the kids are bored while you’re fantasizing about your new Kosher Sporks ($16) collection, consider these family packs full of Bisli and Israeli candy bars ($3 – $49) and Cholent, the Game ($18.56). (Because Cholent isn’t just a heavy stew anymore.)
And, last: Oy Vey! Where are they? And Is He Jewish?
Consider Benjamin Stein’s new novel The Canvas ($12.37), which will keep you guessing about identity, memory, and World War II history, and the long-awaited “But Is He Jewish?” Pillow($12.99). For the friends who are always running late, the OY VEY Wall Clock ($17.99) could be the perfect gift. (You can set it 20 minutes fast.) And if you suspect you know why they’re always late, you might consider the A Great Miracle Happened Here Toilet Seat Cover ($18). Because a little humor might get things moving along.
Happy Hanukkah from our Jewniverse to yours!
