Before You Choose a Gift, Ask

Different families might celebrate Hanukkah differently, so you should ask your in-laws about their specific approach to the ceremony. Typically, gifts are given over the course of the eight days, but one gift may suffice for your in-laws. If your gift can be eaten or consumed, you’ll want to consider whether or not your in-laws follow a kosher diet.

There may be other specific circumstances you need to consider, so ask your in-laws how they celebrate.

These Gift Ideas Are Perfect For In-Laws This Hanukkah

Pay For Dinner

Not all gifts have to be physical items. Treat your in-laws to a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant, or a new spot you know they’d like. 


Books offer options, because there’s a perfect gift for every reader. From mystery novels to cook books to historical fiction, you can’t go wrong with a book that matches your in-laws’ personality.


Flowers are great to have around the holidays, and roses bring any decorative display to life. They’re bold, vivid, and passionate. On their own, roses are great, but a luxurious rose display is brilliant.


Elegant Glassware

No home-owner can have too much glassware. Whether you choose a full set of glassware, or a pair of sparkling champagne flutes, you can’t go wrong with this gift.

Throw Blanket

Since Hanukkah falls right at the start of winter, gifts that provide comfort and warmth make a thoughtful gift. Give your in-laws a fleece throw blanket, and they’ll appreciate your lush, practical gift.

Delectable Chocolates

Chocolates are a classic gift option, but don’t pass them off as cheap or juvenile. A nice box of gourmet chocolates can make a perfectly elegant Hanukkah gift. Your in-laws may have specific dietary needs, or follow a Kosher diet, so keep this in mind while shopping. 


Traditional Hanukkah Gifts

Hannukah is a traditional ceremony with a rich history that days back far before most gifts we give today were even invented. Why not honor the ceremony with a traditional Hanukkah gift? Dreidels and menorah candles are solid options, or you could find a way to give a traditional Jewish gift a modern twist.

By giving your in-laws a thoughtful gift, you’ll not only make their Hanukkah a little brighter, but strengthen your bond, as well.
