Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a happy and festive eight-day Jewish holiday. It can be a wonderful opportunity to woo your significant other with a romantic gift or gesture. Though it can be difficult to find the perfect gift, there are many options for buying loving and thoughtful gifts for both men and women.
Surprise your significant other with a trip. It can be a longer vacation in an exotic or romantic location or it can be a weekend trip to a secluded cabin. Book the trip for the off-season, or during weekdays if you can, so that it will be less expensive. Make sure you do not leave tickets or receipts out so that the gift will be a surprise. This gift works for both men and women.
Jewelry and Art
If you are wanting to give your significant other a Hanukkah-specific gift, many synagogues sell Judaica close to the holidays. A piece of Jewish jewelry or art can be both thoughtful and appropriate. If you are thinking of proposing to your significant other, what better time than Hanukkah? Surprise her with a beautiful engagement ring and wonderful news to celebrate during the holidays. If wanting to buy jewelry for a man, a watch or cuff links are sure to win him over. Have the jewelry engraved with the person's initials for an added considerate touch.
Buy sexy lingerie as a gift for your significant other. Think of it as a gift for both of you, since you will enjoy seeing your significant other in the lingerie. If you feel uncomfortable going into a lingerie store, all major department stores have a lingerie section. Read the return policy of the store before purchasing, in case you purchase the wrong size. You can also buy a gift certificate if you are too unsure of her style and taste.
Traditionally, chocolate coins are given to children over Hanukkah. However, high-end chocolate stores such as Godiva and Joseph Schmidt sell Hanukkah-themed kosher chocolate coins appropriate for adults. This option is best if you are in a new relationship and do not know your significant other well enough to purchase a specific or customized gift.
