Hanukkah Gift Guide for Kids

Hanukkah-themed gifts for your little ones

Every year during Hanukkah, we love to include a Jewish or holiday-themed gift for one of the eight nights. My Hanukkah gift guide for kids includes our favorites from the Mensch on the Bench collection, awesome Hanukkah Magna-Tiles, a play pretend Hanukkah set, our most-read Hanukkah books, and more. These gifts are perfect for children ages 0-6.
