Asked in Hanukkah
What are you supposed to get your girlfriend for Hanukkah if you are a Catholic?
A lot of this depends on where you live as the practice of giving gifts during Channukah exists pretty much only in the US and Canada and even then, a lot of people give small token gifts if at all. Before you buy anything, you might want to check with her parents to find out what their family normally does during Channukah. If they do give gifts, something similar to what you might get her for a birthday present would most likely be appropriate. There is no symbolism in giving gifts during Channukah.
Asked in Hanukkah
How are gifts a part of Hanukkah?
There is no tradition of gift giving during Channukah. That practice got incorporated into the holiday by some Jews in North America because Channukah falls around the same time of year as Christmas and giving gifts to children helped keep them from feeling left out. Some families exchange presents, and some do not; it's a custom that only started a few decades ago. If gifts are exchanged, some families exchange gifts each night during the 8 nights of the holiday. Other families will choose a single day during the holiday to exchange gifts. It is more traditional to give small amounts of money to children during Channukah than actual gifts.

What type of gifts do people give on Hanukkah?
Gift giving isn't actually a tradition associated with Channukah. It's only been in the last few decades in North America that it's become a practice by some. Gifts can range from something small to a major gift giving event. Gifts are normal gifts, toys, clothing, etc. The only traditional gift during Hanukkah is the coins (gelt) given to children.
