Yiddish Gifts

Our Yiddish gifts are sure to tickle the fancy of anyone on your list. Young or old, Yiddish wit has wisdom for all of us. You probably know the expression "if you can't say something nice say it in Yiddish". Yiddish is a wonderfully juicy language with so many expressions and such wisdoms, that are the product of centuries of suffering and survival. 
I spoke Yiddish with my dear father Z'L Charles Oser, I remember many expressions he said to me, many of which I have put on products. I know he would approve! he would say  "Die bist a sheine Meidele ober auch a Vilde Chaya" you're a sweet gifrl but a bit of a wild one. Yes true!
