Going gift shopping is never easy, especially if it is for Jewish women in your life. Whether it is your sister, a friend, your mother or your significant other, you will need to find the perfect item as a present. To finalize your decision, you are probably going through various questions in your head such as what does she want, does she already have this, what is her favorite color and so on. Answering all of these questions just by using your memory is almost impossible, especially when you do not have a lot of time.
Whether it is for Christmas, for Mother’s Day or if it is a birthday, you will definitely have to think of something for a Jewish woman that will be special and unique. You will need to think of something personal that will give the impression that you care and you have given a lot of thought for this present. Although, don’t beat yourself too hard if you simply cannot think of anything that is so personal. Getting them something simple and nice is much better than getting them nothing, right?
However, you probably didn’t come here to learn about how to think of a good gift, but to find inspiration. Fortunately, we have made this list of the best Jewish birthday gifts for women, to help people like to make a choice.
1. Hand Painted and Laser Cut Bowl by Yair Emanuel
Every Jewish woman loves to decorate their living or dining room with colorful items to make it be a bit more lively. This is why we recommend getting her this laser-cut bowl that has been hand-painted by Yair Emanuel. It is riddled with several different shades of glass and it has small, but nicely detail doves that make it a bit more personal. This bowl can have a practical use or be used as decoration in a home.
Why is this a gift for a Jewish woman? You might ask. Well, the bowl takes up the shape of a pomegranate which was a very popular fruit in the history of most Medditerenian Sea countries. It is a very important symbol in Judaism which makes this gift very personal and unique.
2. Watch with Hebrew numbers
We all know that a watch is a classic gift that nobody can turn down. Having a nice piece of accessory on your wrist to go along with your clothing is quite a statement. But, if it is a special event for the Jewish woman in your life, she will probably be a bit disappointed If you get her something as simple as a regular watch. No matter how expensive it is, it will give her the idea that you made an impulsive purchase and that you didn’t give a lot of thought on what you should give to her as a present.
So, our idea to make a watch seem a bit more unique to a Jewish woman is to get one with Hebrew numbers. Those Hebrew numbers will make the idea a bit more personal and unique and shows that you have spent time thinking of the perfect present.
Naturally, you will still have to make the right choice on which watch to pick. We recommend getting one with a black leather band, a face made from gold and maybe even water-resistance as a bonus feature.
3. Star of David Gold Pendant
Every woman loves to wear necklaces, especially when they are made from high-quality yellow or white gold. This is why getting a pendant or a necklace for your friend, soulmate or mother is always a great idea. But, instead of getting just another piece of jewelry from the jeweler’s shop, you should think of something a bit more unique. Check out this Jewish.shop for more unique gifts.
Our idea to make a pendant a bit more unique is to get one with a golden Star of David. The Star of David is the most recognized symbol in Judaism. This hexagon becomes very popular in this religion and in Israel in the 19th century, so giving something like this to a Jewish person will ensure that you get positive feedback.
4. Golden Ring with Hebrew Engraving
Getting a ring for your significant other will always be a classic and one of the most unique gifts you can think of. Whether you choose to go for gold, silver, diamonds r something much cheaper, you will definitely make the Jewish women in your life happy. Sure, it isn’t the most unique idea, but it shows that you really care for her which is more than enough.
However, why not go a step further and make the ring a bit more personal and special to her? When you get into the jeweler’s shop, pick the ring that you think she will love the most and then ask the jeweler whether he will want to engrave it with your own message. We recommend thinking of something short, cute and simple, but make sure it is in Hebrew.
Once you give her the ring, every time she looks at it and reads it, she will think of you. That’s the whole point of a personal gift, right?
5. Sterling Silber Shabbat Candlesticks
You probably already know that every Jewish family in the world has probably one or two sets of Shabbat candlesticks in their dining room or in the cabinets waiting to be put out during the holidays. However, these candlesticks are usually passed on from generation to generation which is why they seem so deteriorated with dents, bumps, and discoloration.
To really surprise the Jewish woman in your life, you should consider getting her custom made Shabbat candlesticks. We recommend that you go for sterling silver instead of gold since it is much cheaper and they simply look better when covered in silver.
This gift that will enrich her living or dining room will definitely make her happy and make her think of you every time she looks at the candlesticks.
