Passover Gag Gifts

Did you know there’s a gift giving component on Passover? Not many people do!

Here’s a little explanation for those that don’t…

The Passover Seder is all about retelling and reenacting the story of the exodus from Egypt. You know Moses, “Let my people go”, and all that jazz. This is done by following lots of traditions, blessings, and rituals in a specific order throughout the evening.

The meal starts off with blessing the first cup of wine (we’re talkin’ Manischewitz, ya’ll), washing hands, and eating the green vegetable. Then our favorite step is breaking the Matzo into three pieces. The middle piece of the Matzo is special. It’s reserved as the “Afikoman” and hidden by the head of the household, to be eaten for dessert.

At the end of the meal, all of the guests search for the “Afikoman” and whoever finds it receives a sweet gift! How’s that for a little incentive?

For those celebrating Passover this year, we compiled a list of silly gag gifts (all Passover themed!) for you to share with your friends and family. Whether they find the “Afikoman” or not, show your loved ones your playful side this Passover. Check ‘em out below:
