5 Must-Have Hanukkah Home Decorations Checklist

Make sure they fit in the menorah you own. 

3. Hanukkah Gelt, aka chocolate coins

A bag per person or enough to have one at each person’s table setting is how many you should buy.

Hanukkah spinning tops, are cute for decorations as well as Hanukkah games post- dinner.

From table centerpieces, to napkins, to flowers, these are the colors dedicated to the Holiday!
