JLife prepares for party season by selecting products that can give your gatherings an extra touch of glamour…
Peace Of Jewellery
If you’re seeking something special and meaningful to gift this Chanukah, statement jewellery can provide a personal touch.
This sterling silver and fresh water pearls bracelet, with a delicate hanging dove charm, is available to buy from GivinGifts, an online gift shop which sells handcrafted products from independent and non-profit businesses in Israel.
Created by jewellery company Indimaj, an initiative designed to bring together people from all cultural and religious backgrounds, this piece makes a unique present and can also be paired with earrings or a necklace from the same range.
Go For A Spin
The humble dreidel is of course synonymous with family fun time at Chanukah, but the traditional spinning top can also be a work of art.
This hand-painted Jerusalem dreidel, designed by Yair Emanuel, features a colourful vista covering all four sides and can be purchased from online design boutique Absolutelymatanot, making it ideal for game time or simply to admire.
Gifts From Galilee
Bring a little bit of Israel to your dinner table with GivinGifts’ A Taste of the Galilee large gift pack, a selection of sample products from the mountainous region in Northern Israel.
Featuring a bottle of Fair Trade extra-virgin olive oil and jars of local honey and za’atar, the collection is all grown and produced in Galilee, and will suit the food fanatic or master chef in your life.
Choose from a wall hanging with text written in Hebrew or English to give a gift that will remind family or friends of your good will towards them – even when you’re not around.
These wall hangings, made by Duart, with blessings such as “bless this house” are detailed and slim-line, made from velvet on Perspex and available in either burgundy or blue. Choose one as a stand-alone present or send a set.
Add A Little Light
Designer Yair Emanuel’s creative menorahs can be found at World of Judaica’s online store, and can be used as a colourful and contemporary centrepiece for Chanukah.
The Tree of Life Menorah, with a bright design and details such as birds and pomegranates, makes for a particularly inspiring and artistic gift that captures the spirit of the season.
