Start out modestly
Start out by giving them something they've been asking for that's modestly priced.
Underscore the spirituality of the season by making a donation in their name to charity.
Make it educational
Make the third gift something educational that is still fun – a toy or game that provides a mental workout.
Give them gelt
On the fourth night, give them gelt – a Yiddish word for money – in the form of cash, chocolate coins, or both.
Reinforce your religion
Reinforce Hanukkah's religious nature by giving them a book, game, video, or toy related to Judaism.
Be kind to the planet
Be kind to the planet by giving them something eco-friendly on the sixth night.
Give an experience
Give the gift of a shared experience by presenting the entire family with tickets to the theater, a concert, or a sporting event. Or give everyone an IOU for a future outing.
Save the best for last
End the holiday on a high note by giving the children one extravagance that they'll cherish.
