As with all gifts, finding something that’s special and sentimental to the couple is the best way to ensure your gift is unique and memorable. If you’re shopping for a Jewish couple who values their religion, then incorporating this aspect of their relationship into their wedding gift is a sure way to make it stand out among the rest.
Similar to non-religious gifts, gifting something for the couple’s new home together is an easy avenue to take. The Jewish religion has several holidays that require special items for the home. For example, a Seder plate for Rosh Hashanah, a menorah for Hanukkah, or a kiddush cup and candles for Shabbat are gifts that any Jewish couple will treasure for a lifetime.
Creative and unique ideas can also be found by looking at Jewish artwork and decor, which we’ve also included on this list. Shop our roundup of the best Jewish gifts below to find a great wedding gift.
1. Glass Art With Mezuzah Scroll
