Continuing our gifts of Hawaii Series, we take a look at a few more unique items which make great gifts for your friends and family back home:

  • Ukulele – Have a musician in your family? Then they are sure to appreciate a gift of this small, guitar like instrument. Refined in Hawaii during the 1880’s, the unique sound of this small but mighty instrument can be heard in many musical compositions around the world; from top charting hits to movie soundtracks and more. As with any instrument, there are a variety of ukulele available to purchase on Maui from lower cost brands to bespoke, master crafted ukuleles.
  • Kukui Nut Lei – While a traditional lei wilts and loses its fragrance over time, Kukui nut lei will last a virtual lifetime as they are made from extremely stout Kukui nuts. Available in numerous earth tones, these lei make great gifts for any occasion!
  • Maui Wines – Maui’s Tedeschi Vineyard has been producing a number of uniquely flavored wines right here on Maui for decades; making bottles of their ever popular Hula O Maui, Lokelani, Upcountry Gold, and other assorted flavors the perfect gift for the discerning wine connoisseur.

While all of the above make fantastic gifts for many, if in doubt you may want to consider gifting what would surely be a hit with any recipient: a stay at one of our premier Maui vacation rentals! Mahalo!
