Show your gratitude with a conventional, cheeky, or downright elegant present. Having a Passover seder supper isn’t like hosting guests for any other occasion, and it’s a difficult task to master. For starters, it necessitates gathering all of the ceremonial accouterments, such as a seder plate, candles and candlesticks, reclining pillows, a haggadah for each visitor, an afikomen holder — and, of course, awards for whoever discovers the hidden matzah hoard.
And that’s before a host starts preparing the seder meal, which has its own set of dietary rules and customs. (Kosher for Passover has its own set of rules; it’s only flourless desserts for this holiday!) That’s not to mention the cleaning required to clear the house of chametz (leavened food) prior to the dinner — and, of course, the clean-up required afterward! (Is it making you fatigued just thinking about it?)
As a guest at such a unique holiday gathering, the standards of civility apply: arrive on time, be courteous, participate when asked, and bring a meaningful hostess gift for an extra special touch. You could always bring an unusual matzah dish to the feast or a bottle of kosher wine to open together to express to your host how much you appreciate all of the effort that went into such a cherished and meaningful custom. (After all, there’s a lot of wine eaten at a seder!)
Consider bringing one of these additional significant Passover gifts to the host’s house, which can be enjoyed by all on the same night or cherished as part of the host’s family’s traditions for years to come. You can order gifts online from your comfort zone and make someone feel special.

Blanket made of matzah:
With this warm matzah-printed throw blanket, you’ll win the hostess gift game. It’s not for eating, despite its realism: it’s for movie nights, couch naps… and just as a fun piece of decor.
Labels for Passover Wine Bottles:
Yes, the Passover seder can last for several hours. Bring a present that will keep the meal lively: These amusing wine labels go right over the ones that come with the bottles (and make a highly Instagrammable addition to the night).
