1. Hawaiian Gift Baskets
A Hawaiian gift basket is the perfect Hawaiian gift idea. It is popular and can be given all year round. Let's explore different items that you can put together.
Hawaiian Gift Baskets:
Lauhala is the type of baskets that is used in Hawaii. Let's find some ideas to fill it up!
Hawaiian Cookie Basket
If you are planning on visiting Oahu you need to go to the Honolulu Cookie Company (located near Waikiki), this is a great Hawaii souvenir for yourself or if you are looking to bring back something special for those you left at home this is perfect.
The same idea goes for The Big Island Cookie Company if you are visiting Hilo.
Once your cookies arrive you can add them to a basket with a few more Hawaiian items. This is a great Hawaiian gift or Hawaii souvenir.
Hawaii Breakfast Basket
A Hawaiian breakfast basket is more of a Hawaiian gift idea. You can purchase a pineapple, mango, tropical pancake mix, Hawaiian Syrup, Hawaiian jam, and if you drink coffee you could add Kona Coffee to fill your basket.
Now, if this sounds delicious to you, these also make great Hawaii souvenirs that you can purchase while on the Island.
Hawaiian Fruit Basket
I love Hawaiian themed gifts!
Hawaiian Fragrance Basket
Baskets are the perfect Hawaii gift ideas!
2. Christmas Ornaments
A Hawaii Christmas ornament is a great idea for a souvenir, they are also a thoughtful gift.
Christmas ornaments are the perfect Hawaii souvenir or Hawaiian Christmas gift idea. You can find Christmas ornaments at most gift shops in Hawaii, but don't worry if you can't make it to the island we've got you covered!
This is one of the best souvenirs from Hawaii and a perfect Hawaiian Christmas gift!

3. Shirts/Moo Moo's - Hawaiian Dresses
My favorite Hawaiian gift and Hawaii souvenir ideas are those I can wear! I love Hawaiian dresses, in fact I wore my Hawaiian Moo Moo every night when I was pregnant (It was perfect!) It is a perfect Hawaiian gift for “her”
Shirts are also a great Hawaii gift idea. If you are going to Hawaii as a group getting shirts pre-made is a great idea. You can include the date and the group name or family name on the shirt.
They are the perfect thing to pack for Hawaii because it makes it so easy to know what you are wearing that day!
I also like to buy shirts as souvenirs. My daughter did the shark cage dive in Oahu and now has a shirt to remember the experience.
Hawaii Gift Shop Ideas for Hawaii Souvenirs and Hawaiian Gifts
If you are going to Hawaii and are wanting to pick out the perfect Hawaiian gift for someone or are just looking for a great Hawaii souvenir, these options will typically be available.
Magnets are a great Hawaiian souvenir because they can be placed on your fridge when you get home to remind you of the amazing memories you made.
5. Snow Globes
Snow globes are great souvenirs to collect. You can almost guarantee there will be one in every place you visit. If you are looking to bring back a fun Hawaiian gift a Hawaii Snow Globe is a great idea.
6. Picture Frames
Once you get home and can look through all your photos, you most likely will find one that is frame-worthy and really should be displayed.
Buying a frame as a Hawaii souvenir will make that photo even more special because it will most likely have the location and design of the area you visited.
Postcards are fun gifts from Hawaii. It is fun to send a few to family and friends while you are on vacation. It is also great to bring a few home to add to a memory book.
Coasters are so fun and practical. I love a good practical Hawaiian souvenir. You can always use these in your home.
9. Pressed Penny
Pressed pennies are fun and inexpensive. At Kualoa Ranch there are so many choices to choose from. Keeping track of them is a little harder!
It is the perfect Hawaiian Souvenir!
10. Hawaiian Mugs
Mugs are great souvenirs. They also make for a great Hawaiian gift idea. Like the mug says, “I'd rather be in Hawaii” too!
I like to purchase some Hawaii souvenirs online because I don't want to break them while traveling. Mugs are in this category.
11. Reusable Shopping Bag
Have you thought about buying a reusable shopping bag as a Hawaii souvenir? It is a great Hawaii souvenir idea, if you haven't considered it before.
I love buying reusable shopping bags. I actually bought the one above at the Dole Pineapple Plantation. I love this unique gift from Hawaii!
12. Local Hawaiian Foods
If you are thinking of what to buy in Hawaii, think food! I love buying local food while on vacation. Many Hawaii gift shops will have items that are unique to Hawaii. These are great Hawaii souvenirs to consider buying.
13. Hawaii Dashboard Hula Girl
I think a dashboard hula doll is a must. It is the perfect Hawaii souvenir and perfect Hawaii gift for Christmas! If there was ever a doubt that you needed this, let's change that!
17. Hawaii Lei and Haku Lei
One authentic Hawaiian souvenir that I loved was my Haku Lei. It was so pretty and it wasn't very expensive. The sad thing is that it will not last long. The fresh flowers are beautiful and it is perfect to wear at the Polynesian Cultural Center or a Luau.
18. Hawaiian Home Kitchen Essentials
Hawaii kitchen essentials are great Hawaii gifts for someone who just loves Hawaii.
If you know someone that would love to have a few Hawaii-inspired kitchen items, this might be the perfect gift for them.
