Hanukkah Gifts

As all Real Simple readers know, any polite houseguest would never show up empty-handed—especially to a holiday party. On the first night, bring your hosts a new menorah or seasonal décor they’ll treasure for years to come. Or, contribute to the meal by bringing a gourmet treat (we suggest the world’s best babka or the more comical Mensch mints). And since any Hanukkah celebration wouldn’t be complete without a game of dreidel, impress your host as well as the other party guests with gourmet gelt. That’s right—gelt, that thin, waxy chocolate coin, can actually taste good. Need enough Hanukkah gifts to last eight nights? Well, we can help with that too. You’ll find something truly one-of-a-kind for everyone on your list—whether you’re looking for a gift for the kids, those hard-to-shop-for teenagers, your significant other, or even your in-laws. Some are luxurious, some are funny—but every last one is sure to be a winner.

Last-Minute Gifts That Don’t Feel Last Minute

It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. There are trees to be trimmed (first you have to get your whole family bundled up and in the car on the way to the Christmas tree farm!), holiday dinner menus to be planned (you know what that means: multiple trips to the crowded grocery store), and countless visits to jam-packed shopping plazas. Oh, and let’s not forget all the work that needs to be done, so you can use up the last of your vacation days. What we’re saying is: We get it. The holiday season, though truly magical at times, can be downright stressful. If you still have a few empty check boxes on your shopping list, let this collection of great gifts be your guide. Each idea on this list can still be ordered (with time to wrap it up and put it under the tree) before your Christmas Eve or Hanukkah festivities begin. And you don’t even have to leave your living room—simply click to buy, and then wait for the goodies to arrive on your doorstep. A handful of the presents on this list can even be wrapped before they’re sent out, so you can truly focus on completing everything else on your to-do list.
