vase made of orange peel
At first glance, Yuli Maroz’s business appears to be made of leather, but when you look closely (and smell mostly) – these are dried citrus peels, treated with a technology that prevents mold growth, but retains that citrus scent. Some citrus peels are attached to jewelry and some are tied together and carved into light fixtures, bowls, and baskets. We especially loved the vase thanks to the special look, pleasant aroma and most importantly – the innovative use of food waste. (Lee Gil, deputy editor).
how much does it cost: 310 shekels for a vase with a height of 18 cm; Can be ordered by size

illustrations of coffee cups
There is nothing upon which my life may depend more than coffee, and there is nothing upon which my life nourishes more than art. So it’s no surprise that I like the fact that the two go hand in hand: For several weeks now, illustrator Ilanit Cheema has been drawing your morning cup of coffee with digital illustrations, both at home and abroad. She uploads illustrations to a dedicated Instagram account (koret_bacafe) and now she also sells them on her online store. Perhaps a lovable illustration of a cup of coffee at home will save you one cup of coffee a day (Royt Barnea, magazine editor).
how much does it cost: Starting at 315 NIS per illustration

The Bow Bow Tray is exactly the one that will make any snack you serve it on full of style. It is suitable for the holiday table and also for more casual hospitality in the following days, or basically any other day of the year. Behind the studio is industrial designer Bar Gantz, who produces original hand carpentry details. The products are made with a natural and unique technique of steam bending wood, and they have a line that is as precise and streamlined as we like (“table” system).

Wait for a glass of wine to take a shower
A simple, innovative and accessible device that makes a long stay in the bath more complete – pampering, relaxing and delicious. The stand sticks well and easily to the bathroom wall (without having to drill holes) and all you have to do is have it within reach, put a glass of wine in it, fill the bath with salts or essential oils and savor a glass of white wine and cool, of course. (Merav Srej, Editor-in-Chief).

It is true that an egg has a definite place in the seder bowl, but what do you do with all the other egg halves that will be dipped in salt water on the eve of the holiday? Ceramic maker Honeysuckle Nir-Kahlon has created a successful custom ceramic plate with sockets that adapts to halves of hard-boiled eggs, with the entire plate also shaped like an egg. Find the dish in a special holiday package by Chef Shi Li Lipa, along with a reusable shopping bag, recipe book and more. (“table” system).

Spring break is for me, among other things, the start of the picnic season, so EMET’s Annette Schlein white collar bag is a perfect gift. This is a stylish and convenient cooler bag, with sturdy straps to carry it as a backpack or handbag, which can hold up to three bottles of wine, cheese or other goodies that require cooling. Equally important – the bag is made in Israel under fair conditions and supports a local supply chain, is made from recycled polyester and has two layers of thermal insulated and comes in a variety of beautiful colors (Enav Richner, food designer).

a cup of coffee
Shofu is an amazing little shop, and if I could – I would take it home. Sells selected, high-quality, premium products from Japan: ceramics, textiles, art materials, posters, dolls, and more. Of course, I call especially kitchen utensils, and I was so happy to get a ceramic cup of coffee – partly because I’m broke, and there’s nothing I’d be happier to start the morning with a perfect cup like that.

Sweets are the most equal for Easter
Out of his love for a good “Dirty Martini” at the end of the workday, the owner of Dalton Winery, Alex Haroni, gave a free hand to assistant winemaker Itay Bay, who with the winemakers searched for the Galilee’s most exclusive wild herbs, and made them vermouth-style ermitt. Pink coriander, juniper, wormwood bushes, citrus peels and more were steeped in Simeon grape wine. The result: a vermouth with complex flavors of citrus, Mediterranean spice, hyssop and ash. In the mouth sweet citrus and slight bitterness. Great with ice cubes on your next summer evening. Kosher and cooked (Mira Eitan, wine reporter.)

Fur dolls from plants
“Simple Happy Kitchen” is a project of Mickey Motts – painter, entrepreneur and vegan. The venture was launched a few years ago to promote vegetarianism, and since then has managed to publish a book, open a deli in central Tel Aviv, as well as produce a series of charming illustrated merchandise from plant-based protein, calcium, and iron sources. We especially loved the furry dolls (which are also very comfy pillows) for characters like okra, black beans, tofu, and chickpeas. (“table” system).

ceramic summer bowl
Pots can be considered winter, but the fact is that they can be used in quick and light dishes, which combine cereals, legumes and vegetables. Roots after winter are simply stunning and can fully enter the pot, which will bring out their best. A ceramic bowl can host desserts from summer fruits, which will be here a little later. But even more holiday fun is to put beans, artichokes, green garlic, and all the abundance of spring – and serve them festively on the holiday table. (Michel Habibian, farmer and mechanic).

As someone who lives with a chef at home, I know exactly what gift any culinary enthusiast would be delighted with – be it a home cook or a professional chef. A craft knife is a useful gift with lots of thought and passion. Yochai Noriel, a chef himself, makes special forged knives that combine different types of wood and personalization (Shani Brill, photographer).

wine glasses stamps
You sit around the holiday table – weeping, full of pleasure and a little drunkenness, before the fourth and final cup of the mitzvah and after the fine seder meal. When the hosts are ready to pour the fourth cup, you awkwardly say you don’t remember where you put your cup and ask them to fumble with a new glass (still, Corona days). In order for this scenario not to happen, they made a box of six silicone cup markers – colored, bright, and sealed with wax. Each stamp comes in a different color and with a personal happy greeting: ‘Love’, ‘Happiness’, ‘Health’, ‘Success’, ‘Abundance’ and ‘Joy’. Included with the case is a cork designed for wine bottles, to re-seal tightly, preserving the quality and freshness of the wine. An original, useful, eco and festive gift on a budget (Daphne Robinson, language editor).

Illustrated Recipe Box
Dania Weiner is a food photographer, recipe maker, and owner of the blog Recipes. During the Corona period, I also started illustrating and photographing the recipes I wrote. Instead of linking them to a regular cookbook, she decided to create a box of recipes, both from her personal and creative point of view. The box contains 20 recipes – the best and most favorite from the blog, with each illustration done differently using watercolors. You can find recipes for spreads such as pesto and beetroot soup. Dishes like curries, harem, bolognese and desserts like lemon pie, chocolate chip cookies and more.
Inside the box you’ll also find a small wooden stand to put the picture postcard on while you’re cooking, or just to make it pretty in the kitchen.

Tools designed by Chef Yotam Otolangi
Otolangi is possibly the most successful Israeli chef in the world (London’s restaurant empire, cooking show, writes for The Guardian, New York Times and more). These days the Beatat brand releases a particularly beautiful range of cutlery and serving utensils under the name “FEAST”. The collection, he says, was created (with Italian artist Ivo Bisignano) with the most joyful gatherings in mind for a festive meal, meeting friends and family, and sharing food, recipes and stories. Above the plates are abstract images of vegetables, a staple in his kitchen, and a recurring graphic image of an “O” brushstroke representing a face, a circle, a point, and of course the O of Ottolenghi. (“table” system).
how much does it cost: Dishes 85 – 125 shekels, serving utensils 270 – 310 shekels.
