Host A Hanukkah Party

Hanukkah Gift Ideas

With the holiday season on the horizon, it’s a great time to start thinking about Hanukkah gift ideas for friends and family. At Pottery Barn, we offer a range of options for every member of the family or for your friends and loved ones. Hanukkah is arguably the most widely recognized Jewish holiday and this eight-day celebration of life gives heed to miracles past and present. Ring in the special celebration with menorahs that twinkle and shine with the magic of the season. Featuring beautifully contrasting textures on elegant, contoured candle stems, our menorahs brighten up Hanukkah.


For friends that may already have a menorah passed down through generations, you can extend the festival of lights with sparkling candleholders in mercury, silver or blue. White taper candles are a sweet way to show loved ones how much you care. Another possibility for Jewish families who love to sit down and enjoy delightful feasts is holiday-themed dinnerware. For a classic, yet understated look, opt for solid blue plates that invoke the colors of Hanukkah. Go all out with Hanukkah celebration plates featuring each of the four sides of the dreidel. Our Hanukkah dinnerware collection also displays the Hebrew letters that mean “a great miracle happened there.”


For the hostess in your life, celebrate the arrival of Hanukkah with gorgeous serveware that makes family gatherings even more special. Fry the latkes and serve them on stunning antique silver trays or platters. This serveware collection features genuine silver plating for the enduring quality of an heirloom that relishes in the historical adulation of Hanukkah. The timeless elegance of silver serveware makes it perfect for displaying all of your favorite Hanukkah foods, including brisket, noodle kugel, latkes and sufganiyot doughnuts.


On Hanukkah, people celebrate with foods fried in oil. This way of recalling the miracle of Hanukkah and the burning of the oil means many Jewish families ring in the celebrations with large feasts. Prepare the table for a night of enjoyment or give a loved one the gift of a striking tabletop with tablecloths and runners in the traditional holiday colors or blue, white and silver. Opt for a centerpiece runner featuring sequins that shine as bright as Hanukkah candles. Add it to your wish list this season for a festive meal whether it’s your first time celebrating with Jewish friends or an annual tradition.


For an upscale Hanukkah celebration, give the gift of elegant beauty with napkin holders and place cards for a fancy look. Opt for napkin holders that are made of brass with an antique silver finish to fit the colors of the season. Make your gift extra special with napkin holders featuring a distinct monogram or sweet phrases. A napkin holder set with the phrase “friends and family” engraved on each one makes an ideal accessory for meals during Hanukkah that honor the importance of community and spirit.


On Hanukkah, we celebrate the transcendence of nature, along with the historical significance of the Jewish culture. For gifts that celebrate this exultation of nature, draw inspiration from the Dead Sea, which is renowned for its legendary therapeutic powers. This year bring a Dead Sea spa experience to your loved ones, with gift baskets that celebrate Hanukkah. Opt for luxurious bathrobes that make cozying up after a bath feel like a vacation. Monogrammed soap sets make your loved ones feel extra special and add a personal touch to each gift. With sweet, fragrant scents your friends and family can relax while enjoying the magic of the Hanukkah holiday.
