For those who celebrate Hanukkah, the menorah plays a special dual role, serving as both an aesthetic focal point for the eight nights of the holiday as well as a ritual item with special significance. Finding the perfect menorah for your home is obviously very personal and, as many of us (myself included) often use the same one year after year, a decision we don’t take lightly (pun intended). To help give you a hand, we’ve rounded up some of the best menorahs we’ve seen, with something for every taste, space, and budget — there are even a couple of options for those who are celebrating the holiday on the road. Whether you’re looking to expand your menorah collection or celebrate the Festival of Lights with something brand new, here are some of our favorite menorahs for the season.

The Trace Chanukiah seems to find its way onto every best menorah list and for good reason: It’s available in a range of colors — black, blue, white, and terracotta — and has a design that works in nearly every space. Plus, it comes with removable candle cups for simple cleanup.

If your design aesthetic inclines a bit more modern, this chic menorah from JK Adams checks all the boxes with sleek veined white marble (each piece is unique), straight lines, and a walnut trim.

A modern menorah with an old-school price, Threshold's Tree of Life Menorah is made from aluminum and iron, but the shiny gold color makes it feel festive and fancy. It's also available in a silver version.

Bonus: Stack them into two columns and they double as Shabbat candlesticks.
