Passover Items To Upgrade Your Seder This Year

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, The Haggadah Collective and the Jewish Museum Shop. Make sure you order soon, as Passover begins on Monday, April 22.

1. “Ten Plague” Coasters for Dipping | $15 for a pack of 12 (Code 18Doors for 10% off)

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 coasters, with icons for each plague are genius. We love that the plagues are written in both Hebrew (with vowels, if you’re working on your reading skills) and English!

2. Kate Spade Candlesticks | $50

If you’re looking for a sleek and modern take on Shabbat candlesticks, these white, purple and silver-accented candlesticks are for you. They’re perfect for celebrating Shabbat year-round, and for Passover. Looking for the prayers to recite when lighting candles when it’s Shabbat but not Passover? We’ve got you covered.

marzipan pops

3. Marzipan 10 Plague Pops | $48 (Code 18Doors for 10% off)

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?

4. Modern Day Plagues Manicure Decals |$13.50

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?

5. Everything Passover Matzah Cover | $36

Add some colorful art to your holiday experience and wrap your matzah in this adorable, symbol-filled Matzah cover. 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. Check out her video on how to fold this cover, too!

candle holders

6. Multicolored Cylinder Hammered Candlesticks | $40

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.

7. Welcoming Elijah: A Passover Tale with a Tail by Lesléa Newman | $16.99

Winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award and the National Jewish Book Award, this children’s book is perfect for teaching young children about the importance of kindness, inclusivity and welcoming others. As a young boy sits around his Passover table reflecting on his family’s many traditions, a stray cat wanders outside; however, when the door opens for Elijah…the two characters are in for a surprise. This book was written by author Lesléa Newman and is geared toward children ages 5-8.

8. Personalized Afikomen Bag | $32

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.

9. Passover Bib | $8.95

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?

10. Glass Kiddush Cup by Via Marris | $85

This minimalistic kiddush cup is handmade through carefully sculpted flamework, and features a textured stem with alternating colors at the rim. Via Marris, a modernist Judaica brand based in New York City, explains that “Alternating color patterns along the rim create space for an individual interpretation of the rituals commonly observed.” We’re all about everyone choosing how Judaism fits into their lives, and appreciate Via Marris’ creative vision.

11. Passover Unicorn Coloring Book | $12

Keep the young ones at the seder busy with this magical, unique coloring book. Made for kids in mind (but hey, who doesn’t love a good coloring session?), you’ll find 20 pages of “unicorn-meets-passover” coloring pages in standard U.S. letter size.

12. The Haggadah | $30

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.”

13. Hug-it-Out: A Lil Haggadah for Kids | $30

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.

pomegranate seder plate

14. Pomegranate Seder Plate | $175 (Code 18Doors for 10% off)

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.

15. Passover-themed Dog Tennis Balls | $10

This Jewish holiday is for everyone in the family—so let’s not forget about our canine companions! This set of three tennis balls is a hilarious Passover pet present, as your pup gets their very own Matzah balls.
