Clearing up a misconception...
There is a big misconception with Chanukah in regards to gifts. Today's gift idea may have derived from non-Jewish sources. The Jewish tradition on Chanukah is to give money/coins to children that could amount to quite a lot if they had lots of relatives and friends in the area. Originally children would go to relatives and friends every day and get their coins.

Second Day of Chanukah in Yerushalayim
The Golden Menora: Moving Closer to its Destination
Description from YouTube: On the second night of Chanuka, 5768 (December 6, 2007), the golden menora prepared by the Temple Institute and fit for use in the Holy Temple, was moved from the archaeological site of the Roman Cardo in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, to its new location, alongside the Yehudah Halevi staircase leading from the Jewish Quarter to the Western Wall Plaza. There it overlooks the Temple Mount, site of the future Holy Temple. A small move, perhaps, for the golden menora, but a giant leap forward for mankind, as the rebuilding of the House of G-d becomes one step closer
