Hanukkah Goodies to Light Up Some Eyes
This blog comes from our new Communications intern, Jane Gogerman, who is clearly more organized and prepared for the holidays than the rest of us. We welcome her enthusiasm and look forward to putting it to very good use.
With Hanukkah in less than two weeks, you may be feeling like you’re pressed for time to find special gifts. Don’t fret, The Pickman Museum Shop has one-of-a-kind gifts sure to put a smile on the faces of those whom you love.
Your eager-to-learn son or daughter will love their new Friends of the World menorah ($40). Have them tell you something they know about each country as they light the menorah candle. As for your younger tot, I recommend the Melissa and Doug “Noah’s Ark Shape Sorter” set ($29). Teens may be a bit harder to please, but if you have a computer geek who’s eco-friendly, the LED Motherboard Menorah is perfect ($20)!
As a woman who loves dressing up her outfits with jewelry, my eyes are set on a unique pair of Michal Negrin’s blue flower earrings ($40 and up)that will surely complement several outfits. You can find an assortment of beautiful handcrafted jewelry in a variety of styles, shapes, designs and colors by Negrin and other talented designers at the shop.
Do you have a messy but loveable cook always in search of a pot holder and oven mitt? Now you can save them the stress of using their apron or that messy dish rag and surprise them with a menorah print mitt and matching pot holder. As a friendly tip, I recommend attaching two hooks, one near the stove and one by oven—now they will have their own spot ($5-7.50).
No matter who you are shopping for, you are destined to find the gift you are looking for and a welcome break from the mall traffic.
