With the holidays just over a month away, I figured it was time to share this clever Hanukkah gift that I came across a little while back.
This modern spin on the Menorah is made from recycled circuit boards, and offers up a bright red LED for each night of celebration. From a strictly religious standpoint, I’m not really sure if LEDs qualify as a appropriate substitute for candles – but on the other hand, this Menorah won’t burn your house down either. To illuminate each light, just flip the appropriate DIP switch.
The LED Menorah measures in at about 9″(w) x 5.5″(h), so it should fit nicely on your windowsill for all the passersby to see. And it runs on a single 9-volt battery which should last for several seasons (no more drippy candle wax).
You can find the LED Menorah over at FredFlare for just $25 bucks. Trust me, it’s a much better gift than another pair of support socks or tighty whities.
