Want to start your holiday shopping but not quite ready to face the crowds (or not even on Maui?) Here’s an assortment of holiday-themed gifts (with Maui ties) that you can order online!
Head High Tropicals
Looking for a show-stopping wreath for your front door or a gift for a lover of tropical flowers on the mainland? Head High Tropicals will create, package and ship a wreath ($145) or basket ($75) to your lucky recipient (or yourself!) – all prices include shipping and tax. Quantities are limited so ordering early is advised.
Speaking of foliage, if you are looking for a more eco-friendly Christmas tree this year, check out Plant a Wish’s Live Native Christmas Trees, for a potted 3 foot tall ohia lehua tree (available on Maui only). Trees are $75 if you order before midnight on November 30, or $85 after. The cost of your tree includes delivery (Maui only), personalized support in the planting of the tree, and detailed tree care information.

And speaking of eco-friendly gifts, Maui-based Wrappily has a new line of holiday wrapping paper, and if you are feeling crafty, new holiday gift-topper kits!
Well now you have your wreath, your tree and your wrapping paper, how about some holiday home decor, for you or as a gift! BlueJane Maui has these handmade (and professional quality) pillow covers featuring holiday messages in black paint on natural canvas fabric, with contrasting fabric (varies with pillow) on the reverse. See the listings for the Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas in Hawaiian) or Joy/Peace on Etsy.
