When you were young, it was hard not to get excited about Hanukkah. Time with Bubbe and Zayde, chocolate coins by the fistful, and eight nights of presents?! Nothing could be better!

You may be an adult now, and Hanukkah may have taken on a more serious, traditional tone, you can still give your family truly special Hanukkah gifts. Need some ideas? We’ve got a few:

Something Sentimental

If you’re looking for a Hanukkah gift that is beautiful, personal, and can be used everyday, a wooden watch from Modply can be a great idea. These watches look stunning with both formal and casual looks -- and thanks to their customization options, you can add a personal message to any watch.

A personalized wooden watch is a wonderful way to show someone how much you care during Hanukkah. Not only will your sentimental message make this Hanukkah a special one, the watch will be a sweet reminder of your love all year long.

Something Traditional

Most holidays are rooted in tradition, and Hanukkah is no different. During these eight nights, we celebrate our history and our family with traditional food, traditional games, and traditional storytelling. So why should our Hanukkah gift ideas be any different?

For example, oil is a key element in the story of Hanukkah. You can pay homage to that with the gifts you give, too! Consider giving your loved ones a set of sweet-smelling essential oils, or even a gourmet bottle of olive oil.

Something Modern

While traditional Hanukkah gifts can be a great idea, there’s something to be said for a modern present, too. A fun gadget or in-house entertainment system can be great for the whole family, as most devices can easily be shared throughout the household

Something Festive

Hanukkah is the festival of lights, so you and your loved ones should sparkle like diamonds. Jewelry can be a great choice for just about anyone, from high-end diamond earrings for your wife to a star of David pendant for your sister, niece, or daughter.

If giving jewelry as a Hanukkah gift seems like a good idea, make sure you choose something made from safe metals. Or better yet, go with something safe and hypoallergenic, like a great wood watch!

Something Useful

Everyone loves a gift that they can use every day. Of course, the perfect gift will vary with each person. So when you’re deciding on Hanukkah gift ideas, consider the things that your family and friends will really make use of.

You’ll know when you find the right gift. Whether it’s cookware, jewelry, a wooden watch, or even a family portrait in a nice frame, this gift will stand out on the shelf -- and it is certain to make your loved one’s face light up.

This year, give your loved ones gifts they’ll cherish for years to come. If you’d like shop at Modply for presents, consider giving a personalized wooden watch to everyone on your Hanukkah gift list!
