How we chose the best Hanukkah gifts

We considered time-honored traditions, product quality and availability and whether or not an item is considered "kosher" for Hanukkah. While many Hanukkah gift ideas exist, we made sure to include only items that met even stringent observance rules in Judaism.

It was also important for us to consider affordable, budget-friendly Chanukah gifts because giving money is a tradition many families adhere to, giving only small physical gifts.
