Avoid the Mishegaas*—Shop Online
If you are anything like me, you are starting to panic that Hanukkah is just around the corner. You probably have yet to buy bubkes ** and don’t know where you will find the time to do so between now and December 1. Luckily, you can trade your guilt for gelt and quickly. The Pickman Museum Shop has just expanded its online offerings.
There is something for everyone on your list, even your picky nieces and nephews. One of my favorite items includes the Shalom Sesame Hanukkah DVD starring Jeremy Miller from Growing Pains. It features “Dreidel of Fortune,” and a hilarious cameo by Joan Rivers. Pair it with some Jewish silly bandz and you will once again be the cool aunt or uncle.
For hard-to-shop for mothers- and sisters-in law, there are terrific mah jongg inspired gifts including custom mah jongg sets, cocktail napkins, and jewelry. Speaking of jewelry, we also carry Michal Negrin’s beautiful line. Fathers, brothers, and husbands will appreciate a wide assortment of books that range from presidential history to the cultural history of chop suey and beyond.
Shop now and receive free shipping through December 15. See the website for details.
