For Chanukah I got aviva_m, at her suggestion, the book Jews Welcome Coffee: Tradition and Innovation in Early Modern Germany. As a German Jewish coffee enthusiast, it was ideal for her. The question then was what to get her for her birthday. Thinking of her other interests, I told her, "I've searched all over the Internet for Jews Introduce Rabbits To Talmud, but I can't find a copy anywhere."

Then inspiration struck.

The result was this T-shirt:

The German reads: "My boyfriend wanted to get me my dream book..."; the book's title reads Famous Rabbits in the Talmud.

[T-shirt, back]

"...but all I got was this lousy T-shirt."

With thanks to Albrecht WINOLJoDW for providing me with German after curious_reader told me mine was all English idiom literally translated.

Let's take a closer look at the book mock-up, so you can see the author and cover clearly:

(The German for "rabbi" does not, of course, normally feature a T.)

aviva_m wasn't the only one getting a present. Jane (so-called because she's Jane Doe, but also because being a grey lady rabbit, that makes her Lady Jane Grey) made a present for Bar-Navi:

[Jane gives Bar-Navi his present]

"What is it?"

[It's a tallis]

It's a tallis, and Bar-Navi is very pleased with it.
