Hanukkah Gifts for Everyone on Your List

Written by Paula Moore | December 13, 2011

Hanukkah is almost here, and you know what that means: good food, festive gatherings with family and friends … and eight days of presents! PETA’s animal-friendly gift ideas will keep you going for all eight days of Hanukkah celebrations:

  • I Have a Little Dreidel: I made it out of … marshmallows? Sweet & Sara’s chocolate-dipped vegan marshmallows in three festive shapes—the Star of David, a dreidel, and a menorah—will have everyone singing “The Dreidel Song.”
  • Jelly Doughnuts Redux: With 250 recipes, Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero’s Veganomicon is the only cookbook that you’ll ever need. Whip up a batch of their Jelly Donut Cupcakes for a modern twist on the Hanukkah potluck favorite: jelly doughnuts.
  • A Scentsational Gift: Bring a smile to your sweetie’s face with A Scent of Scandal’s holiday-themed soy candles in tongue-in-cheek scents such as Challahback Girl (challah bread) and Hanukkah Bush (fir tree).
  • Not Your Bubbe’s Fur: A luxe, looks-like-the-real-thing faux-fur scarf or hat will keep your loved ones cozy and cruelty-free all winter long.
  • Tee Time: From PETA’s “Test Tubes, Not Bunnies” T-shirt to this clever “veggie menorah” design (featuring pea pods, carrots, and red peppers in place of candles), there are countless ways to get animal-friendly messages out there—and look great doing it!
  • Gifts for Four-Legged Friends: Don’t forget to wish your animal friends a happy Hanukkah, too, with PETA’s cat and dog gift sets.
  • Gifts for All Animal Lovers: Spread some cheer (and compassion) by choosing a “virtual gift”—such as a toy for a neglected dog or a spay or neuter surgery—at PETA will send your recipient a beautiful e-card thanking him or her for helping animals.

    Even though I am not Jewish, I went to many Hanukkah parties as a child because I grew up in an area with a lot of Jewish families. Those are great gift ideas!! The first folk dances I ever learned were the circle dances at Hanukkah parties, bar and bat mitzvahs and Jewish weddings. Now I both circle and square dance. Lets party!!
