Re’eh–The Right Gift

“[On Sukkot] you shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you and your son and your daughter . . . “ Deut 16:11

Our sages taught: you should make your children and the members of your household rejoice on the holiday, for it says “You shall rejoice on your festival along with your son and daughter.” How do you make them rejoice? Men with wine, and women with new clothes.  (Pesachim 109a)
