Unlike the Christmas holiday, Hanukkah celebrations start on a different date each year and last eight nights, usually in late November or December. However, just like Christmas, there really aren’t any hard and fast rules for Hanukkah gifts. As much as we love cute blue and white prints or trendy new candle holders, this idea really matters during the holidays.
As a reminder, the Festival of Lights starts on December 1st. Turning 18 this year (yes, that means it overlaps with Christmas), so be a real man and pick up your presents ASAP! We’ve found some of the most creative, surprising, and delicious gifts around, so read on for some holiday inspiration. Need more ideas? Check out our favorite gift ideas for women, gift ideas for men, practical gifts, Amazon gifts, and Nordstrom gifts.
