Hanukkah begins at sundown on Friday, Dec. 11 this year. I’ve rounded up some treats that make great gifts during the holiday that are organic, too.
Iced Hanukkah sugar cookies: Little Laura’s Sweets makes these beautiful iced cookies from organic ingredients and sells them through Foodzie. $30 for 18 individually wrapped cookies in a box that’s gift worthy.
Hanukkah chocolate coins: Sweet Earth Chocolates makes organic and fair trade traditional gold wrapped Hanukkah gelt in dark chocolate or milk chocolate. $4.95 for 15 pieces in a bag.
Kosher Yarden organic Chardonnay: This wine from Israel gets good customer reviews and is called “not too oaky” on Kosherwine.com. $16.99 a bottle.
Harney and Sons kosher organic teas: Harney and Sons make a variety of teas that are both organic and kosher. The company also participates in One Percent for the Planet and donates 1 percent of its profits to environmental causes.
Hanukkah chocolate lollipops: These fair trade and organic chocolate lollipops from Xocolaterre come in milk, dark or white chocolate. $4.05 (unclear how many lollipops come in an order).
Chocolate dreidels: Another fair trade, organic product from Xocolaterre, these dreidel shaped chocolates come in milk, dark, or white chocolate. Each is wrapped in biodegradable cellophane and come in a 100 percent recycled box. $8.60 for 8 pieces.
