Rosh Hashanah Gift Baskets Ideas

10 Aug

Starting at sunset on September 4, 2013, is one of the holiest days of the year in the Hebrew calendar, Rosh Hashanah or Jewish New Year. The holiday commemorates the creation of a man and is considered to be the time for visiting synagogues and reflecting on the mistakes made in the past year and planning for self improvement in the following one.

Similar to the rest of the world Jewish New Year is celebrated with a big pomp. The festivities last for two days and are accompanied by various traditions including blowing a shofar (a horn used for Jewish religious purposes) and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey and other.

Sweets for Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is a time of sweet celebration, and the foods eaten during the holiday reflect that. Eating sweets during Jewish New Year is a part of the tradition and it represents sweet promises, hopes and opportunities in the upcoming year.

The main symbol of hopes for a sweet New Year in Jewish culture is apples dipped in honey. Another traditional treat is sweet bread called challah. The round shape of challah symbolizes the never-ending cycle of life and is usually eaten with honey symbolic of happy life and success.

If you’re sending a gift for Rosh Hashanah to your relatives, friends, loved ones or business colleagues, make sure it includes these symbols of Jewish New Year which will bring your dear recipients fortune and luck.

Fruit for Rosh Hashanah

Fruit are sweet, delicious, healthy and very appropriate at a festive Rosh Hashanah table. The ritual of eating fruit during the holiday reminds people to appreciate the fruits of the earth and being alive to enjoy them. Along with apples dipped in honey people traditionally eat pomegranates on the second night of Rosh Hashanah. A pomegranate is often used as a “new fruit” – meaning, a fruit not yet eaten this season. Its abundant seeds symbolize fertility, hopes for good deeds and merits in the upcoming year.

When searching for a fruit basket for Jewish New Year choose hampers which contain traditional symbolic fruit as well as all time favorites like dates, figs, nuts, dried and fresh fruit. Consider the number of recipients and choose the size of the basket accordingly. Make sure everyone has a chance to enjoy your delicious token!

Kosher Gifts for Rosh Hashanah

Jewish holidays often center around food and Rosh Hashanah is no exception. Jewish New Year is traditionally celebrated in a big company of relatives and friends who share the festive meal together.

There can never be too much food at a festive table that’s why giving gourmet gifts for Rosh Hashanah is a great idea. But since many Jews stick to number of strict eating regulations, you should consider giving Kosher basket which will suit any taste and diet. Chocolate, cookies, baked goods, cured seafood, wine, we can ensure that your recipients will enjoy each and every product because our Kosher Rosh Hashanah gifts baskets are designed to reflect holiday traditions and satisfy any cravings.

Wish L’Shana Tova – Happy Sweet New Year – to your family, friends, or business associates in Israel, US, or other country worldwide. Treat your recipients to any of our Rosh Hashanah gift baskets that will convey your warmest, sweetest New Year wishes and bring happy smiles of appreciation and gratitude on their faces.
