Hanukkah (also pronounced Chanukah), is an eight-day Jewish holiday sometimes referred to as the “Festival of Lights.” Though Hanukkah is a holiday steeped in ancient traditions, modern-day Hanukkah gift cards can still be part of this nightly gift exchange.
Below are some Hanukkah gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:
Double Dreidel. Have the kids gather round to make dreidels out of clay, paper, or cookie dough. Take a candid photo of the kids while they work together and upload it to make a personalized gift card. Give the Hanukkah gift card along with the homemade dreidels to a friend or family member who will appreciate the modern approach to a Jewish tradition.
New Menorah. As the Jewish bride and groom start their new life together, they’ll need to light a Hanukkah menorah of their own. Turn the couple’s engagement photo into a custom Visa® gift card. Punch a hole in the corner of the gift card (being careful not to punch the magnetic stripe) and tie the gift card to the menorah with a blue and white ribbon. In one simple gift, you’ve paid homage to another tradition in giving the wedding couple something old, something new, and something blue.
A Lasting Gift. As important as it is for families to gather together to celebrate Hanukkah, spending time together throughout the year is no less important. Use a photo from a previous family gathering to give everyone the same personalized gift card. Write the words, “Make it last” on the embossed message line, symbolic of the oil that lasted, families that last, and making the Hanukkah gift card value go a long way.
If you don’t have a Hanukkah photo of your own, select a Hanukkah gift card design from our predesigned gallery. The gallery is full of gift cards created by our designers plus thousands of images submitted by photographers, artists, and designers who participate in the PicPaid program.
