You must not know much about Hanukkah.
Here's the suggested list of gifts for the 8 days of their holiday. Even on a Hebrew budget, this is a big cash out for most families.
>Day One -- Traditional Gifts: Keep Hanukkah traditions alive by giving your children a dreidel, gelt -- chocolate coins are also perfectly acceptable -- or a menorah. Create lasting family memories by teaching your children the dreidel game and playing it together.
Day Two -- Puzzles and Games: Take inventory of your children's puzzles and games and see what childhood classics they're missing. Purchase old favorites like Candy Land, Monopoly and Clue and give them to your kids to play together as a family. Invest in a large puzzle that everyone can work on as a group throughout the evening.
Day Three -- Books: Choose a few books for each child based on their reading levels and interests. Not only does reading serve as a great way to improve their vocabulary, it also provides hours of entertainment. Local libraries make a great go-to for purchasing books cheaply, as many have small book stores where donated books find new homes.
Day Four -- Gift for the Family: Teach your children the joy of sharing by purchasing a gift for the entire family. You can make this surprise as inexpensive or extravagant as you want, but keep the focus on spending family time together. For example, a few budget-friendly ideas include letting your kids choose a movie to see together or treating them to a pizza dinner. Check sites like Groupon and Living Social for discounts on restaurants, local activities and getaway deals.
Day Five -- Pajamas: Your children could probably use new pajamas, so turn this practical item into a fun gift by choosing a silly pair or one donning their favorite characters. Look for high-quality, low-priced pajamas at discount retailers.
Day Six -- Charitable Giving: Teach your children the joy of giving by dedicating one night to charity. Set aside as much money as you feel comfortable giving and decide as a family which charity or charities you'll donate the funds to. Alternatively, you can also purchase gifts for a children's charity.
Day Seven -- Favorite Items: Present each of your children with a gift bag filled with some of their favorite things. These don't have to be expensive items. In fact, you can gather them throughout the year when you find them on sale. Ideas include candy,
