Hanukkah comes early this year — December 2! — so it’s time to start gathering up ideas for cool Hanukkah gifts for kids. While of course every toy, game, accessory or gift can be wrapped up for Hanukkah, I love that we’ve been able to track down so many gifts that really let you proclaim your love for the festival of lights. And latkes. And chocolate gelt.

Always the chocolate gelt.
