artists have made a great contribution to the wide array of
originally designed Passover gifts. Passover dinner is usually held
with many family members and guests who gather around the table for the
festive re-telling of the story of Exodus and to celebrate the freedom
of the Jewish people. On this most celebrated Jewish holiday, it has
become a popular custom to exchange gifts. Passover gifts are often
both decorative and practical, and that is why it has become a popular
gesture to give them at holidays or as gifts for housewarmings,
anniversaries and other special occasions.
Passover is considered a good occasion to purchase new kitchen wear.
Most Jewish households thoroughly clean their household before Passover
to keep rid of Chametz. According to the Mitzvah, everything made of
bread or flower – Chametz - is removed from the house and bread is
burned just before the holiday comes in. Appropriately, as Passover
arrives, many Jewish people enjoy treating themselves or their families
and hosts with new kitchen wear. Popular Passover gifts include
decorated knives, salt and pepper shakers, plates, Kiddush cups, and
more. If you are invited to a Passover dinner, these items are very
appropriate and will be welcomed as a kind gesture by your hosts.

dish represents the sufferings of the Hebrew slaves in ancient Egypt.
these six dishes, the seventh ceremonial food is the matzos. Matzah is
a special kind of flat bread eaten during the eight days of Passover.

decorated with traditional Jewish motifs as the seven species, and
inscribed with Hebrew words. It is also very common to find Seder
Plates and Matzah plates in matching designs.

covers, for example, come in unique designs and can add color to the

pieces. One piece is hidden as part of a game played with the children.

Afikoman covers to fit the fun and humorous nature of this special

Exodus. Filling this cup with water signifies Miriam's Well which
miraculously turned into an endless source of water for the Israelites
in the Sinai desert.
