Yom Tov Gift Ideas

Contact info

The Norwood Mall Rosh Hashanah Market

The annual Rosh Hashanah Market is currently on at Norwood Mall. Browse around … there are plenty of stalls so you’re bound to find the perfect gift. How about a beautiful, handmade platter from Lauren Samakosky Ceramics? These well-crafted works of art will make even the fussiest of hosts happy! Otherwise, be sure to check out the yarmulkes made from old cold drink tins – how’s that for cool?

Where: Norwood Mall Centre Court, African Street and Sarie Marais Street, Norwood, Johannesburg.

When: 1-13 September 2015 from 09:00 to 16:30.

The Nut Lady

Dried fruit, nuts and nougat always make for great gifts … especially when they’re put together so exquisitely and are beautifully wrapped! Pay The Nut Lady a visit and browse their shelves to pick out the perfect Yom Tov gift. Don’t worry … if you don’t find what you’re looking for on their shelves, they can create custom hampers and gifts to suit your unique needs – talk about service!

Where: The Nut Lady has branches in Sandton City, Hyde Park and Norwood Mall. Visit their website here.

Net Florist

Joburgers are notoriously busy … which means that not all of us have time to run to the shops to pick out gifts in time for the holidays – and that’s where Net Florist comes in … you can order your present online! Whether you want to arrive with a Le Cruset honey pot or a pre-packaged jar of kosher nougat, simply click through to the Rosh Hashanah section on their website and browse away!

Where: Shop online here.

Selwyn Segal

The Selwyn Segal is an amazing organisation that provides accommodation, therapy and stimulation for 113 residents and services to a further 25 daily visitors in their day care centre. It also has its own gift shop, where you can find food hampers that’ll wow your hosts! Gifts from the Selwyn Segal store can be purchased online, which saves you plenty of time during that pre-Rosh Hashanah rush! How about a combo of wine, chocolate and biscuits? Sounds pretty good to us! An alternative gift would be to make a donation to the Selwyn Segal in someone’s name … you can make a donation by clicking here.

Where: Buy gifts on their online gift store here.

The Jewish Women’s Benevolent Society

This is another great organisation that does a lot of amazing things for the Jewish community … they’ve got a wide selection of Rosh Hashanah gifts listed on their website, from a stack of coasters and a presentation of dried fruit to a set of Wilkinson stainless steel salad servers, which comes with chocolates … some tough choices lie ahead!

Where: The gifts are available at their offices in Sandringham Gardens and at the Norwood Mall Rosh Hashanah market. Visit their website here.

Walters Nougat

Walters Nougat is a sweet and tasty treat that makes for a fantastic gift, too. These products are handmade using only the finest ingredients … because it tastes better that way, of course! Check out their online order form and make your host’s Rosh Hashanah a sweet one.

Where: Check out their e-catalogue here.

We wish all of our Jewish readers a good Yom Tov and well over the fast!
