Top 8 Gifts for Jewish Geeks

Gut Yontiff!

Yes, I know that Hanukkah is over. But that doesn’t mean you gentiles shouldn’t get all your Jewish friends Christmas presents. What are you going to do, not invite them to your Christmas party? Or make them sit in the corner with the cheese curls while you have your Christmas gift exchange? I think not.

Now, you goyim shouldn’t get your Chosen nerd friends gifts based solely on their Jewishness. A good, thoughtful gift is catered to an individual’s personality. But if you are completely stuck as to what to get them, here are 8 suggestions.

#8. The Droidel

No, you should not give your buddy a free, downloadable papercraft dreidel as a gift, you yutz. It would be hella cute as part of the gift wrapping with some chocolate coins, though! Download and print this R2D2 Dreidel and play a few rounds of Droidel at your holiday party.

#7. Zombie Hanukkah Cards

I still know that Hanukkah is over, but it’s always good to plan ahead. And you can never go wrong with zombies.

#6. Nice Jewish Guys Calendar

“Why haven’t you found a nice Jewish guy and settled down?” -My Imaginary Jewish Mother.

#5.Hanukkah Spock Paper Doll

You don’t need deck the halls or jingle bell rock, ’cause you can spin the dreidel with Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock–he’s Jewish! It’s actually a magnet paper doll, and at the moment, is sadly sold out back in stock!. And speaking of Spock…

#4. Vulcan Salute USB

According to, “The Priestly Blessing is traditionally recited by Kohanim (your Cohen friends who are, in Orthodoxy, the Jewish priestly clan) while doing the Vulcan Hand Salute. The Kohanim hands came first, of course, and Leonard Nimoy brought the hand sign to Star Trek.”

#3. LED Menorah

Yes, I KNOW Hanukkah is over! OY! But now’s the time to buy menorahs on sale, like this LED one from ThinkGeek.

#2. The Bagel Drive

Available in 2 to 8 Giganosh, behold the mini-bagel USB flash drive. Includes schmeer of cream cheese, but no lox.

#1. SuperJew T-Shirt

As seen on Seth Rogan in Funny People, this t-shirt will show everyone what a super Jew you are. As most of you nerds know, Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, and much of the Superman story reflects the Jewish faith, borrowing Moses’ origin in particular with bits of Samson and the Golem thrown in for good measure.

      Hooray! There’s so many surprising layers of Judaism to Spock, no?

    It’s an age-old tradition and part of religious belief for the Jewish faithful to give judaica as present to family and friends not only during religious holidays but for also for ritual purposes.
