Why wait for Hanukkah to treat yourself (and your friends too)? I’ve put together this guide for Rosh Hashanah Gifts for Food Lovers. I’ll take one of everything, please.
I love the Jew New Year. An excuse to eat apples & honey, a reason to purchase a new outfit for shul, and, best of all, getting together with my friends and family and eating a big meal. Whether you need a hostess gift or just want to treat yourself, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite foodie gifts from my new site, ModernTribe.com! Which one is your favorite?
If you are like me, you’re a slob in the kitchen. No shame in it. Cover yourself with this cute Israeli made pomegranate apron from Barbara Shaw! Fun fact: pomegranates are traditional for the Jew Year as they are a new fall fruit! Some say pomegranates have 613 seeds; one for each commandment. I haven’t counted myself.
Rosh Hashanah Nail Decals
I have these nail decals (and the ones for Passover and Hanukkah too!) and am obsessed. Because when you are bringing out your delicious homemade Rosh Hashanah dinner, your nails have got to look GOOD.
Another item from Barbara Shaw! Because I love her stuff. This Israel-made Hebrew calendar tea towel tells you when all the holidays are (in English. Because how many times do you have to Google Passover 2017?!? At least 613. Now just look at your towel!)
Ooh spiny things. This bowl is the perfect vessel for your Rosh honey, and then turn around and use it for charoset on Passover! Or candy any day. Mmm candy.
And if you’re feeling real fancy, splurge on this Joy Stember apple and honey platter. It is made from shiny red powder coated steel and brass and come with a honey dipper that is made from pewter and brass. Use the rest of the year as a gorgeous serving platter.
You can’t have Rosh Hashanah without honey- duh! But don’t use just any honey. Lavender Honey is among the most prized varietals of honey, and this one is from Southern Spain. Its light color, slightly purple hue, and gentle flavor notes make it particularly complementary in mild tea and as a sugar substitute in baking. And it’s kosher!
Totally obsessed with this calendar. Each month is a different Jewish baked good!! (Perfect for me, right?) Babka, hamantaschen, and challah!!
