Shopping for Local Gifts Hawaii


50 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 07, 2016

I will consult and shop for you to find the perfect Hawaiian gift or basket for you or a loved one. I reside in Hilo, on the Big Island, Hawaii. I was a Maui resident and can offer great advice for that island as well, the rest is island wide info and knowledge on Hawaiian culture and consulting my credible sources for specific requests for Kauai, Oahu and Moloka'i.
Focusing on handmade jewelry, foods, art, photography, and local made gifts that wouldn't normally have the marketing to reach anyone not physically present.
Hawaii has an amazing array of artists I can visit in person at their home, farm, etc. and see the current items offered for gems, plants*, blown glass, paintings, coffees, teas, art, photography etc. We can design a number of things together for unique packages.
I also offer great expertise in what is available within your budget, and whether an item is "authentically" Hawaiian. (For example, not all coconut oil is created equal. There is hand collected, squeezed through cheesecloth, filtered and bottled by hand from a private farm in Hana. Maui, for $22 oz., or $10 for 8 oz. machine bulk processed from Honolulu, but with the touch of a finger you will know the difference!)
I can go to the markets/stores and correspond with you and the business/artist on the spot, and let you guys work out any cash details amongst yourselves if you find something you love.
The possibilities are endless!
Let me know what you are looking for, what you or the person enjoy, and your price range.
Aloha and Mahalo!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
