Gifts on Shabbos

Tuesday, 23rd October 2018

Gifts may not be given on Shabbos as it is considered like doing business. This includes birthday gifts, Bar Mitzvah gifts etc.

The exception to this rule is when the gift is for a Mitzvah (e.g. gifting someone a Lulav on Sukkos with which to fulfill the Mitzvah) or if it something necessary for use on Shabbos (e.g. a utensil or a food or drink brought for the hostess that is needed for the meal).

A way to give a gift, if necessary, is to have someone else to pick it  up and  be Koneh it (assume ownership) for the recipient before Shabbos, and then when it is handed to the recipient on Shabbos he is simply  taking something that is already his and no  transfer of ownership is taking place on Shabbos.

Alternatively, the recipient can take the gift but have in mind not to assume ownership of it at this time and only after Shabbos he can pick it  up again and be Koneh it.
