Hanukkah Gift List Document

Now that it’s December, it’s time to start thinking about Hanukkah. I say this in a completely joking sort of way, because Hanukkah starts on December 8th this year and I’d be in big trouble if I just started thinking about it now! Actually, next year Hanukkah starts on Thanksgiving. Just saying.

Before I go on, I’d just like to state my normal Hanukkah disclosure – I don’t love the commercialization of the holiday and while I think Hanukkah’s importance as a Jewish holiday has been exaggerated due to its proximity to Christmas, I still love getting things for my kids and enjoy finding good deals on gifts for them. As I see good deals and ideas, I snag them if they seem like things my kids would enjoy and I use Hanukkah as an excuse to give them gifts!

So far I am ready for Hanukkah for Gabbie and Zachary, but not for Simon. He is only 2 and I honestly would not stress about getting him a gift every night, but I don’t think he’d be happy if the other kids get gifts and he doesn’t. We have too many toys and he probably wouldn’t appreciate decor for his room or the like! (Which by the way, is one of the gifts Gabbie is getting!) So if anyone has any ideas to fill in the gaps for him, please let me know!

I will go more into detail about each gift the kids get during Hanukkah, but today I wanted to share a document I made in order to keep track of what gifts I’m giving each night. I’ve even made a blank copy of the document for anyone to use!

I have been staring at your chart trying to come up with ideas for Simon but I am not coming up with anything. The best I can do is some sort of DVD on the night you give Gabbie and Zachary DVDs but I am sure that is not too helpful.

Ideas for Simon: things you would get him anyway such as cute socks, pjs, cute shirt etc. A 'new' book from a book sale or one he forgot he has!

I didn't realize Hanukkah started so early next year. Of course I wasn't planning on going home for Thanksgiving next year, but it would have been a great year be there since I'd be home for Hanukkah for the first time in years. O well, at least I know now rather than later.

And my mom actually did a similar things, where she numbered each gift with post-its so she remembered which one was for which night.
