One of the perks of Jewish weddings is the huge variety in gift ideas. Besides all the regular kitchen and home supplies, there’s an array of Judaica every Jewish home needs. If you’re not sure what to give, read on for some helpful tips.
1. Kiddush Cup
A Shabbat essential. A Kiddush cup makes an ideal gift because it will be used on a weekly basis. And every time it’s used, they’ll think of you.
Shop Kiddush cups.
2. Shabbat Candlesticks
Same story as Kiddush cups, Shabbat candlesticks will be used every Friday night. With so many choices in design and material, it’s easy to find a pair of candlesticks to match the bride’s personality.
3. Challah Board
A practical gift that often gets overlooked. Challah boards are elegant cutting boards used only for Shabbat. Get a matching knife and the set is complete.
4. Havdalah Set
Another piece of judaica used weekly, Havdalah sets are used exclusively for the closing ceremony right after Shabbat ends. Having a matching set makes the ritual that much more special.
Shop Havdalah sets.
5. Money/Gift Card in Increments of 18
Perfect for the couple who has everything, or has very specific taste. There’s a special tradition to always give money in multiples of 18, the numerical value of chai—”life.” Give a gift card to Baltinester and let them choose their perfect piece.
