Product Review Sunday

Chocolates are sweet, representing the Hanukkah spirit. There are great chocolates made just for Hanukkah that are inexpensive and a perfect gift to give for the holiday. You can find chocolate dreidels, chocolate menorahs, and chocolate stars, and more. Nannies and au pairs can certainly buy these individual chocolates – a new one on each day – and surprise the kids on all the eight nights of the festival.

Hanukkah Gelt

Hanukkah gelt means Hanukkah money. Children are often given sums of money as an official Hanukkah gift. According to a survey done in 2006, 74 percent of parents in Israel give their children Hanukkah gelt. A popular custom in the past few decades is giving chocolate coins to children on the festival of Hanukkah. Children often use chocolate gelt to play dreidel. So, nannies and au pairs can't go wrong giving their charges some chocolate gelt for Hanukkah.
