Updated on January 17, 2012

For Chris, choosing gifts is like writing a story: By matching the character to the gift, you learn more about people and what they value.

Here is a selection of delicious, gourmet kosher Hanukkah gift baskets filled with all kinds of assortments, both sweet and savory: chocolates, smoked salmon (lox), fruit, nuts, and other kosher treats. These are wonderful to give away to coworkers, family and friends.

Kosher gift baskets make perfect Hanukkah presents for a special friend or a neighbor, to show thanks to a coworker, colleague, or boss, to treat your relatives and even to mail to a college student or other distant loved one during the Hanukkah season.

From hampers of sweets to rich and savory food baskets, from elegant gourmet assemblies to health-conscious fruit-and-nut sets and novelty baskets, there are so many options from which to choose - even New York style black and white cookies. A kosher gift basket will be welcomed with open arms at Chanukah.

Make Chanukah Easy!

Between the partying, the dreidels, the latkes, the Hanukkah gelt, the lighting of the menorah, buying special presents for kids and the occasional lavish gift for adults, Hanukkah can seem like a whirlwind to celebrate. And eight days of this! Oy!

The solution is a pre-filled kosher gift basket. Goodies and sweets that you don't have to bake, a basket you don't have to fill, and treats that will delight the recipients and help take the panic out of the Chanukah season.

Make your own gift baskets if you're creative and enjoy baking--see instructions in this article.

Or buy kosher Hanukkah gift baskets online for the ultimate in convenience.

Gourmet Hanukkah Gift Baskets - Kosher

Depending on who's getting the gift, choose a sweet, savory, or mixed kosher gift basket. All the Ingredients in the foods inside a kosher gift basket are stated to be safe eating for people who keep to kosher dietary guidelines.

Gourmet kosher treats in many of these baskets include pound cake, smoked salmon, gourmet chocolates (and we're not talking just chocolate coins), dried fruit, roasted pistachios, cookies, chocolate-covered pretzels, and more.

A special note about the Pure Bribery Photo Box Gift--this is a wonderful way to personalize a gift basket for Hanukkah. Fill the box with photos of your family or other photographs that are meaningful for the recipient. The contents are gourmet chocolates temptingly laid out inside.

The Kosher Hanukkah Cornucopia™ Gift Basket is an especially suitable gift for an office or a family. Filled with treats and candies you do not see everyday, it has something festive and delicious for everyone. (And if you have kids in college who live in a dorm or apartment and aren't coming home for the holidays, try sending this gift basket as a care package while they're in finals week. They--and their friends--might actually pick up the phone to call you and thank you!)

Healthy Hanukkah Gift Baskets - Kosher

Sometimes Hanukkah is a time to splurge and indulge in treats you wouldn't let yourself eat other times of the year. But there are times health issues really shouldn't be put on hold for the holidays. If you know a kosher-keeping person with special dietary restrictions, you can respect that by making or buying:

  • Kosher low-carb gift baskets
  • Kosher refined-sugar-free gift baskets
  • Kosher fruit-and-nut gift baskets
  • Kosher gluten-free gift baskets

If you make your own gift basket (see the section in this article about ideas for what to put in a homemade kosher gift basket), then you can make it low-carb by choosing roasted nuts, lox, sugar-free kosher chocolate, sugar-free macaroons, and non-food items like Hanukkah decorations and toys in the basket.

Kosher sugar-free gift baskets for diabetics are easy to make--just make sure most of the ingredients are free of refined grains and added sugar, and are savory and protein-rich, as for diets low in carbohydrates. For dried fruit, choose dried apricots and prunes, two fruits relatively low in sugar.

Gluten-free gift kosher baskets can be gotten ready-made, or made with all gluten-free kosher ingredients, which are becoming more and more plentiful on the market. Make sure no foods included have wheat, rye, barley, triticale, spelt, etc.

You Can Even Make Your Own Kosher Gift Basket...

If you're game to make your own gift basket or bag for Hannukah, go for it! Include objects of different sizes, some cellophane or tissue paper, and a contrast of neutral and brightly colored treats and presents.

Here are suggestions for gifts and goodies to go inside a homemade Kosher Hanukkah gift basket for kids or even for adults:

  • Joyva Halvah candy bars
  • Dreidel
  • Homemade kosher rugelach
  • Chocolate Hanukkah gelt
  • Miniature menorah
  • Chanukah songbook
  • Dried apricots
  • Chocolate-covered nuts
