Let’s face it, Jews: Cute Hanukkah decor is hard to find. In our Christian hegemonic society, Hanukkah decorations are usually too cheesy or just completely off. (For an example of the latter, see Dollar Tree’s current online Hanukkah section or Bed Bath & Beyond’s terrible Hanukkah pillow from 2021.)
If you too have reached the point where if you see one more Hanukkah llamakkah you’ll vom-ukkah, never fear. We’ve got your back.
Hey Alma has gathered a list of the chicest Judaica and home decor to zhuz up your home for the Hanukkah season. Happy decorating!
In 2022, Susan Alexandra told Hey Alma that she started making Judaica because she couldn’t find anything on the market she actually liked. A year later, Susan has frankly revolutionized the Judaica world. The Dirty Martini Menorah comes from her latest collection and it would be a stunning addition to anyone’s home.
If you’re looking for an atypical menorah design, why not go with the bubble? It’s unique shape and shiny surface will reflect even more light into your home this season.
It’s a banana. It’s a menorah. It’s a banorah! (And, it’s only $20!)
We simply had to include a menorah with a classic stem design, and this Tree of Life Hanukkiah is both chic and deeply meaningful.
Because everyone needs at least one dreidel that is purely ornamental.
Finally, a dreidel for people who are goth, Jewitchy or both!
Simple, sleek and chic.
These candles are handcrafted from 100% beeswax in Oregon, so you just know they were molded with love by a kind, 50-something-year-old man with a ponytail.
The saying “Have your cake and eat it too” is out. “Play with your dreidel and eat it too” is in.
Full disclosure, this candy is not gelt. However it is so, so cute and blueberry-flavored!! If you’re in the market to switch up your Hanukkah gelt this year, get this candy.
If you want to go with the classic gelt option Lake Champlain Chocolates offer a sampler of organic milk chocolate, dark chocolate and dark mint coins wrapped in Italian foil. Mamma mia!
If you’re having a big Hanukkah gathering, this stoneware collection is perfect for you. It includes four dinner plates, four salad plates, eight appetizer plates, one serving bowl, one sectioned condiment platter, one lazy Susan and one serving platter.
This dinnerware set isn’t explicitly for Hanukkah, but it’s also not not for Hanukkah, you know?
This platter is serving Hanukkah. (Sorry.)
This artisanal and minimalist platter is great for presenting latkes, sufganiyot or bimuelos. Plus, it’s probably the tiniest Star of David you’ll ever see on a plate!
They tried to kill us, we survived, let’s eat. *Confetti explosion*
Perfect for holding gelt, M&Ms or actual dreidels.
Over the last few years, Target has seriously upped its Hanukkah game and this blanket is no exception. The design is both entirely Hanukkah-related and low-key elegant, and the white fuzzy backing looks so cozy. Plus, the material is from recycled fabric! Hooray!
Before you judge us for including decor with a Hanukkah-related pun, just look at how cute this pillow is! According to Maisonette, it’s “hand embroidered in wool and backed in luxe sky blue velvet,” and perfect “whether you’re snuggling up with loved ones for a game of dreidel or just taking a well-deserved nap after eating too many latkes.”
