Just like celebrating Christmas without a Christmas tree, no Hanukkah celebration is complete without a menorah. Not only is it a reminder of the miracle of Hanukkah and the reason for celebration, but it’s a reason for the family to gather around each night and ceremoniously light the night’s candle. It kicks ofF the celebration, and keeps it flickering and alive for all eight nights.
If you’re planning on hosting a Hanukkah dinner, you’ll certainly want a beautiful menorah displayed on your dining table or centrally located in a window. Even if you’re celebrating solo, the warm candlelight lights the room and sets a cozy and warm tone.
Menorahs are also a great gift for anyone during the Hanukkah season – whether for a newly married or engaged couple, a family, or a friend. Even if they already have one, there’s room for multiple menorahs to be displayed throughout the home so don’t worry about that factor. While we’ve rounded up our favorite menorahs, all of which are on sale, you can browse some other great options here. You can also check out some other great Hanukkah decorations for the home to bring your holiday celebrations to life.

3. Jonathan Adler Elephant Menorah
If you’re into contemporary and modern decor, then you’re probably familiar with Jonathan Adler.

The design is unexpected and original, making it a great gift or purchase for yourself. The matte white glaze keeps it clean, sleek, and super modern. If you prefer, there’s also a similar menorah with a dachshund design from Jonathan Adler. Looking for a cool and unique dreidel? Jonathan Adler has a few of those too. One of the designs is a Christmas ornament dreidel if you know someone who celebrates both holidays.
