Hawaii is a state with a variety of customs and cultures not commonly known or even practiced by those of us on the Mainland. If you’re looking for a few ideas for giving the “gift of Hawaii” here are some tips and practices:
- Because Hawaii contains food items that aren’t readily available to those on the Mainland these items often make great gifts. For example, macadamia nuts are one of the more popular items used for gift giving. They can be plain or even covered with milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Kona coffee, another Hawaiian favorite, is a great idea and comes in different flavors which make it perfect for the coffee lover in your life.
- Next among popular items with Hawaiian flare is jewelry. A favorite is having a name translated into Hawaiian and engraved on a gold necklace or bracelet. Another option is incorporating the Hawaiian state gem – black coral – into different jewelry pieces, maybe a necklace with matching earrings for example.
- Finally, a sarong or maybe a Hawaiian themedshirt are great ideas for using clothing as gifts. Any piece with plumeria or other tropical flowers included in the design, especially on sundresses, will give the feel of Hawaii even in the coldest of Mainland environments.
If you have a hard to buy for person in your life, or just want to give the gift of Hawaii, you can never go wrong with a Hawaiian gift basket -- these can incorporate many different kinds of Hawaiian items, and gift baskets are always a gift that is kept and remembered for a long time. Keep in mind that the Hawaiian culture tends to be more laid back than most of us are used to and incorporating this into your gift giving introduces this beautiful lifestyle to those who may not be able to experience it otherwise. Aloha!
