Something about the idea of Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the shamash just feels so right. Honor one of the lights we lost this year with this menorah.

This menorah is adorable and hopeful — just look at those little pomegranate-shaped candle holes! Plus, it has the added benefit of taking up very little storage space for the rest of the year.

If you don’t want this cute-yet-somehow-sophisticated elephant menorah, there might be something wrong with you. (Sorry.)

Blacksmith Iron Menorah (Amazon, $108.00)

This menorah, with its striking shape and hammered iron look, is elegant and understated. The person who owns this menorah definitely knows where they’re going in life (or is really good at faking it).

Okay, so nobody’s doing a whole lot of traveling these days, but this colorful, stackable menorah is both fun and practical. And you can switch up the shape every night!

Wooden Menorah (Etsy, $69.00)

The cousin of the elegant iron menorah, this wooden beauty is sleek, warm, and aesthetically pleasing. We’d be proud to display her.

Bagel Menorah (Amazon, $40.00)

You can never have enough bagels in your life, but this menorah would help. If only they were still 5 cents a dozen in real life!

This menorah sits at the intersection of what our childhood and adult selves find pretty: delicate flowers and winding branches. In the dark days of December, this menorah reminds us that spring will come again.
