For those of you that don’t know me, hi! I’m Eden. I’m the COO here at HEA, as well as a wife, a mama, a self-proclaimed physics nerd, and an M.O.T.; a Member Of the Tribe.
As Christmas takes center stage during the month of December, many Jews can feel a little left out of the celebrations, which is why I’m so grateful to Eva for allowing me the opportunity to share some Hanukkah gifts and Semitic cheer with you today!
I’m assuming you’re all familiar with the Happily Eva After Gift Shop by now…and if you’re not, what are you waiting for?! There are gift categories for everyone on your list, and promo codes to help you save money! However—for those of you that celebrate Hanukkah, (or have Jewish friends/family that you’re fresh out of good gift ideas for) I created this Hanukkah gifts guide that covers all of my faves from A-ppetizers to Z-ohar!
Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy Hanukkah! Chag Sameach!

Russ & Daughters’ Potato Latkes

These pajamas are available for the whole family, and will last year after year!
Rabbi Sandra’s חיי שחורים חשובים (Black Lives Matter) T-Shirt
I love this BLM shirt designed by Rabbi Sandra Lawson (who, if you don’t already follow on IG, you should!) She’s an LGBTQ Reconstructionist Rabbi based in North Carolina who live-streams her morning prayers and blessings, and is an all-around good human. The design is also available for all sizes and ages. Just select ‘Style’ and you can adjust for the giftee. I bought one in a toddler size for my son!

A cute, delicate addition to any ear stack!

Lele Sadoughi’s Jet Pearl Embellished Gaiter Face Mask
One of Judaism’s most cherished values is the sanctity of human life. In fact, religious obligation comes secondary when doing so may endanger life. Shmirat ha-Nefesh is a commandment that means protecting life, taken from Deuteronomy 4:9: “Be cautious with yourself and seriously guard your life.” So with that in mind, WEAR A MASK! This one is a Gaiter mask that doubles as a scarf for those who live in cold areas!
Yotam Ottolenghi & Sami Tamimi’s Jerusalem Cookbook
What to get for the bubby who has everything? THIS! It’s hands-down my favorite cookbook of all time. The latke recipe from this book will knock your socks off.
RGB I Dissent Menorah
This gift needs no explanation. It’s on my list!
The Eight Knights of Hanukkah
As a Welsh Jew, who married a Scottish Jew, and now has a 2-year-old Welsh-Scottish Jew, this book makes my whole family feel SO SEEN!
