Rosh Hashanah Gifts
Rosh Hashanah gifts should be a reflection of the holiday itself. Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the High Holy Days and it is heralds in a series of autumn holidays. Celebrated on this holiday is the beginning of the Jewish New Year. It is traditional to sound shofars and to eat fruit, particularly pomegranates and apples, and other sweet foods, especially honey. The tradition is to give Rosh Hashanah gifts of these sweet foods to those whom you want to wish a sweet new year.
Today Rosh Hashanah gifts vary greatly; you can give just about anything! There are, however, some very popular items that have some significant meaning for the holiday. Honey dishes are, perhaps, the most popular with a huge range of designs available. There are designer honey dishes available from well-known artists such as Shraga Landesman, Yair Emanuel, Lily Art and Caspi-Silver. They come in a wide range of shapes with some being shaped like apples or pomegranates and others taking on a more classical form. There is a honey dish to suit everyone. Many honey dishes also come with a spoon or dipper.
Shofars and accessories for shofars are another very popular Rosh Hashanah gift. These also come in a huge variety of styles and sizes. An accessory such as a bag or holder can be a much appreciated gift for someone who already owns a shofar.
Another popular Rosh Hashanah gift idea is a Rosh Hashana Seder Plate. These plates have multiple segments for containing sweet foods and foods with special symbolism for the holiday. They can be used by the receiver with pride and memories of the giver. The seder plates are often decorated with scenes of Jerusalem or the fruit of the seven species.
Other contemporary Rosh Hashanah gifts include kitchen supplies and home d?cor in the shape of pomegranates or with pomegranate designs. The pomegranate is considered a symbol of fruitfulness because of its multitude of sweet, juicy seeds that are a deep red color. Items with pomegranate designs are beautiful ways to wish someone you love a fruitful New Year. You can get necklaces, challah boards, tablecloths, wall hangings, Kiddush sets and almost any other Judaica item, in pomegranate design.
