We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A sweater for those who know just getting "smashed" on Hanukkah won't cut it the same as getting "shamashed."

*The shamash is the candle on the menorah that gets lit first every night of Hanukkah and is used to light the other candles.

Get it from The Workout Princess on Etsy for $24.99+ (sizes S–2XL).


5. A jumper that'll simply express the most important way you plan on getting "lit" this holiday.

Promising Review: "This very soft and comfy sweater runs true to size. The blue color is very pretty and comes as shown! I am so happy to have found something comfy and fun to wear during the holiday. I bought if for myself, my daughter, and my daughter-in-law to enjoy wearing during Chanukkah!" —CarolAS

Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (sizes XS–L).

6. A crew neck to make you laugh and then inspire you to cook some challah french toast or something.

And if you make challah french toast, send me some.

Get it from Human for $35 (four colors, sizes S–3XL).


7. A pullover so you can channel your inner Schmidt from New Girl. But, you can appreciate this hilarious print even without watching the show.

9. A jumper to show other people how we Jews wish each other a happy holiday.

Okay, we don't actually say this, but it's funny, maybe we should start.

Get it from WET HOUSE on Etsy for $26+ (two colors, sizes XS–3XL).

10. A cardigan for the Jew who really doesn't like being confined to a sweater, damnit.

Promising Review: "Even though it says juniors, the medium fit well as a regular women's medium. It's not too heavy and made nicely for the price. You can wear it ironically, or not." —Lori R

Get it from Target for $27.99 (sizes XS–2XL).


13. A poncho embellished with Stars of David and dreidels will probably make you the trendiest person at the ugly sweater party, or just in general.

14. A shirt (not a sweater), to give people a gentle reminder of why Hanukkah is so great.

Along with playing dreidel and eating latkes and jelly doughnuts, of course.

Get it from Charming Charlie for $19 (sizes M–XL).


18. A sweatshirt with a reminder that you should take a moment this holiday season for playing dreidel with family and friends and WINNING ALL THE DAMN GELT.
