Passover items can have sentimental value, whether it’s a family kiddush cup or a handmade seder plate from your childhood. But maybe you’re looking to add something new to your collection, or don’t have any Jewish family heirlooms.
The good news? There are so many beautiful Passover items online. The bad news? It can be so tough to choose from all the variety! But we’re here to help make your decision paralysis a little less overwhelming.
From colorful candlestick holders to modern afikomen holders (traditionally, matzah is placed in a special holder and the middle matzah is called the afikomen), we rounded up some of the best Passover seder table essentials.
This selection comes from our partners Peace Love Light (where you can get a 10% discount using the links below or by entering code 18Doors for your Passover purchase at checkout), Modern Tribe, the Weitzman Museum, Arielle Zorger and The Haggadah Collective. Make sure you order soon as Passover begins on Wednesday, April 5.
There comes a time during the seder when the leader begins to recite the ten plagues, and typically most people “dip” their finger in either wine or juice as each plague is said aloud. It’s a fun, interactive moment that kids love…and it can get confusing to tell if you’ve made 10 dots on your plate or just drowned your matzah. That’s why these double-sided, disposable napkins are genius. You can decorate your table with the “Happy Passover” side, and then have your guests flip it over when the time comes.
These shimmering, colorful candlesticks are perfect for celebrating Shabbat year-round, and for Passover. They’ve been designed by Yair Emanuel, an Israeli-based artist who focuses on the fusion between ancient and new. Looking for the prayers to recite when lighting candles when it’s Shabbat but not Passover? We’ve got you covered.
Kids and adults alike will love the adorable representations of each plague on edible pops! These marzipan treats will help keep the little ones entertained during the seder. They also make a great teaching tool as you point out each plague individually, and are vegan, gluten-free and certified Kosher. Did we mention they’re delivered fresh the week before Passover?
This mix of modern day “plagues” alongside the 10 Biblical plagues are sure to start a conversation at your seder. There’s 44 decals made for adults and children, so buy one pack or a few to get everyone involved! You won’t only find frogs and boils to put on your fingers, but look closely and you might see a low-battery signal and a typing speech bubble. When putting these decals on together, spend some time asking yourself: What are my biggest “plagues” today and how can I work to combat them?
Add some art to your holiday experience and wrap your matzah in a the English and Hebrew spellings of “Passover.” Arielle Zorger is an artist inspired by “all things bright and happy” and that’s the kind of energy I’m looking to have on my Passover table this year. Oh, and it’s machine washable too, in case someone drinks a little too much Manischewitz.
I love this combination of stainless steel with gold pomegranate accents, and I’m pretty sure Elijah will, too. Also, how cute is the matching dish? But this cup isn’t just for Elijah the Prophet (who we put a cup out for during the seder, alongside a newer tradition of adding a cup for Miriam too); it works well as a gift for yourself. Buying a shiny, new Kiddush cup is a holiday necessity, as you will use it at many a holiday meal and every Shabbat if you wish. And if you’re wondering who Elijah even is, find out why we invite him to our seders.
Arielle’s adorable made-to-order set is food safe and perfect for displaying any small holiday items such as candy or jewelry. The tray, which features one of the ten plagues, comes with a gold leaf spoon.
Say goodbye to hiding the Afikomen in paper towels (or was this just my grandpa?), and upgrade to a customizable, zippered bag. Made from cotton and designed to last, this pouch can feature your family’s last name for a little extra pizzazz.
Not only will this bib keep your baby clean, but it also provides a pretty amazing photo opportunity. Can you imagine looking back in five years to see your kiddo wearing this? It’s soft, colorful and has Matzah trimming on it…what more could you want?
The reviews are in and everyone at your seder table needs a pair of these soft, festive socks this year. First of all, we can always do with another pair of socks, right? Second of all, I love the idea of wearing these every night during the holiday to keep me being cozy during a long Passover night of… not eating bread. It can get cold without all those carbs!
This magical, unique cookbook was created by a mother-daughter duo and will inspire adults and children of all ages as they learn about Jewish folklore, culture and cooking. Get ready to laugh and bring your appetite as you journey around the world with Jane Yolen and her daughter Heidi.
The Haggadah Collective is run by Pearl Richman and her daughter Maxie, who have created a beautiful new guide for your seder that is full of kindness and compassion. They describe their Haggadah as, “a modern, curated and meaningful take on a traditional Haggadah, offering a contemporary perspective honoring women, the LGBTQ+ community, refugees, victims of terrorism in Israel, and the memory of those lost in the Holocaust.”
If you’re looking for ways to keep your kids entertained during your seder, you don’t want to miss The Haggadah Collective’s page-by-page companion that perfectly pairs with the adult Haggadah above. Rather than finding way to distract the little ones at the table, this child-centered approach is likely to keep everyone at the table busy and included! Maxie, one of the creators of this project, is currently pursuing her Masters in Child Study and Education so I think she’s up to something innovative.
Brighten up your table with this special Passover item: A golden, enamel and handmade seder plate. As you set up your new seder plate this year, in addition to getting a lot of compliments, you might find yourself gaining knowledge and wisdom. That’s because the pomegranate is a symbol of righteousness, and is said to have 613 seeds like the 613 commandments in the Torah. The best part of this plate, though, is that you can use it year round! It works well as a platter or an appetizer plate.
