Flash Post: Magpie’s Menorah

What It Is: Hey, I might celebrate Christmas, but that doesn’t mean I won’t throw fun gift ideas at you for the likes of Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. I covered an avant garde Christmas tree the other day, so today it’s time for a pretty, tweety menorah. David Gerstein is the Israeli artist behind this candy-coloured design, which is made of metal and can hold anything from cutsey birthday candles to traditional tapers. Definitely a modern take on this traditional holiday symbol – but it’s so darn cute you might be hard-pressed to put it away after your eight days of light!

Who It’s For: Three requirements: Jewish (naturally). Doesn’t own a menorah (or is at least long overdue for a new one). Has some snazzy design sensibilities (hint: your single sister or new girlfriend might dig it in particular).

What It Costs: $245 for a lifelong heirloom.

Where It’s At: Snap it up from the World of Judaica, a Canadian shop with all sorts of goodies for those practising the Jewish faith. There are a few other David Gerstein menorahs to choose from by the way – check out the ‘Brushstrokes‘ and ‘Birds In Flight‘ options as well.

    I don’t celebrate either but many of my friends do they have some pretty nice menorahs

    Wow it’s a bit pricey — maybe for a REALLY good friend, I’d consider it.

    A very colourful menorah. #CGG

    The price seems a little steep….but at least you can re-use every year, unlike a live Christmas tree. #cgg

    Like others have noted, it’s a bit pricy. The design is nice though. #CGG
