(October 16, 2014 / JNS)
Let’s face it: Jews, like pretty much everyone else, enjoy shopping and receiving or giving gifts. This time of year, when a massive amount of Americans flock to department stores to purchase presents in time for Christmas, Hanukkah means we don’t hesitate to also get in on the action. Some of us even treat our Christian friends to gifts. We may not want to admit it, but we kind of look forward to the holiday shopping bonanza—from the Black Friday lines, to the Christmas season’s vibrant lights and red colors, to the customary Santa-dressed employee at the mall jingling a bell and yelling “ho, ho, ho.”
For holiday shopping enthusiasts of all faiths, JNS.org presents product recommendations on higher and lower price ends from major retail brands, so that you can treat your loved one or friend with a great present. Consider using these gift ideas as a jumping-off point and price-comparing mechanism for similar products at different retail stores.
