Start off your Hanukkah with celebratory musical classics by Sam Adler, Leo Low and Michael Isaacson. Songs include medleys such as B’rakhot L’hanukka and Ma’oz Tzur to name a few. There’s a song for each day during the Festival of Lights, setting the mood with cheerful songs from the Old Country. Get your copy of Hanukkah Celebration from Takealot.com.
Follow the age-old tradition of giving gelt this Hanukkah. We suggest that you get your sweet fill of chocolate money from Woolworths or from one of our favourite candy stores in Joburg, such as the legendary Dicks Sweets in Northcliff. Be sure to get quality chocolate gelt as we’ve found that unfortunately, some suppliers skimp on the good stuff.
Take the gelt trinket full circle and throw a beautiful coin purse from Frasers Luggage into the mix.
Spoil your favourite people with a handmade mohair bear named Ben. This lovely little thing is crafted by the skilful hands of Happiness@nr4 and is available through Hello Pretty.
Fun for the entire family, the Tangram bear puzzle is a beautifully designed and handcrafted challenge to enjoy during the Festival of Lights.
Grab a colouring poster by the Colour Jar and keep the kiddos occupied this Hanukkah.
Come along with Biscuit as he makes a beautiful menorah to celebrate Hanukkah. It’s a great time for stories, songs, food and friends! Get your copy of Biscuit’s Hanukkah online at Takealot.com.
