Do you give gifts at Passover? Although you certainly don’t have to, if you’re attending a Seder dinner, it’s courteous to bring along something for your host or hostess. From gorgeous Seder plates to wine and desserts, these are some of the best Passover gifts for your celebration.
For the Traditionalist: Seder Plate Set
No Passover dinner table is truly complete without a Seder plate. This gold-rimmed one is a timeless set you’ll be able to use year after year.
For the Cookbook Collector: Jew-Ish
Whether you’ve already mastered the most popular traditional Jewish recipes or you’re just looking for a new dish to try this Seder, you’ll find plenty of delicious eats in Jew-Ish: A Cookbook. Highlights include modern twists on the classics, such as roasted chicken matzo ball soup and macaroon brownies. Learn how the author, Jake Cohen, celebrates Passover.
For the Dessert Lover: Passcaken
Meet the turducken of Passover. From a New York City bakery famous for its outrageous confections comes the Passcaken, which is a coconut macaroon pie (with a matzo crust) that’s topped with flourless chocolate cake, raspberry mousse and a chocolate sea salt matzo crumble. Not yet convinced? Read all about the epic Passcaken.
Editor’s note: While this gift is kosher-style, it is not certified kosher for Passover.
For the Homebody: Volcano Candle
Lighting candles holds significance during Passover. And it’s not just limited to the traditional tapered candles. Celebrate the season with the beloved Capri Blue Volcano candle. Not only will it fill your home with the delicious scent of tropical citrus fruits, but it also looks beautiful sitting on the coffee table.
For the Snacker: Passover Matzo
Ah, matzo—the preferred Passover snack. Although there are plenty of brands and varieties from which to choose, Manischewitz is one of the most popular (and you can buy it on Amazon!). If you have any leftover after the holiday, use your unleavened crackers in one of these tasty matzo recipes.
For the Nature Lover: Bouquet of Flowers
You can’t go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of blooms when visiting someone’s home. One of our favorite flower subscription services has a ton of gorgeous bouquets available for delivery, including this bunch of spring blossoms filled with pastel roses, lilies and carnations.
For the Wino: Wine Decanter
Wine is an integral part of Passover, so you’ll need a way to serve it. Enter: this sleek wine decanter, which has thousands of positive reviews on Amazon. With a 750-milliliter capacity and easy-to-pour spout, it’s the perfect carafe to hold a bottle from one of the best kosher wine brands.
For the Hostess: Matzo Plate
Have your matzo and eat it, too, with this unique serving plate that looks just like the unleavened cracker. Handcrafted with gleaming nickel, it’ll look stunning sitting on your Passover table. We recommend filling it with this decadent chocolate-covered matzo that you can whip up in minutes.
For the Healthy One: Dried Fruit and Nut Tray
Give your host something on the healthier side to serve alongside all the indulgent desserts with this fruit and nut tray. It’s brimming with gourmet goodies, including dried peaches, plums and kiwis, along with roasted pistachios, almonds and cashews, to name a few.
Editor’s note: While this gift does not contain any grains, it is not certified kosher for Passover.
For the Homemaker: Kitchen Towels
Albeit not Passover-specific, a set of pretty tea towels always makes for a great host or hostess gift. These soft cotton ones are covered in a colorful floral print that’s just right for the spring season.
For the Fashionista: Kate Spade Seder Plate
