Christmas is still a few weeks away, but many families get an early visit from St. Nick on December 6th. Youngsters hang stockings or put out shoes the evening before St. Nick’s day and wake up to find small trinkets, snacks and other gifts in their footwear. LeiHut loves all things holiday, especially if we can put a little Hawaiian twist on the tradition. Here are our top St. Nick’s holiday picks:
Mixed Mochi Balls: These colorful, crunchy, bite-sized snacks are as delicious as they are fun to eat. Mixed mochi balls come in a variety of bright colors and almost look like ornaments you could hang on the Christmas tree. These light and airy nuggets make a great snack on their own, or can a fun addition to other salty munchies like pretzels, popcorn, or other arare.
Sweet Coconut: Give them a sweet treat as white as Christmas morning snow. Dried coconut pieces have a chewy texture and are chock-full of island coconut flavor. Try adding pieces to trail mix or into your favorite dessert recipes for a truly tropical taste. You can also create an edible winter wonderland by incorporating coconut into your gingerbread house decorations!
Tropical Candies: With flavors like pineapple, mango, and coconut, there’s no way you can go wrong with these delectable hard candies. These yummy treats dissolve slowly, allowing you to enjoy the tropical taste sensation. At a time when chocolatey, gooey candies and cookies are in abundance, having a fruity option around is a welcome change.

For Her: Treat the special lady in your life to a little luxury with tropical bath and body products.

This gift of island warmth during the cold winter months is sure to bring a smile to his lips! Everyone knows that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so give him some delicious Hawaiian cookies to indulge in along with that cup of java.

The perfect gift for doggies and dog lovers everywhere!

The Hawaiian islands are famous for their bright and beautiful blossoms. Indigenous flowers, along with plants that were brought over from other lands, grow easily in the tropical climate. Here’s a quick guide to some of LeiHut’s favorite flowers:
Hibiscus- The official flower of Hawaii, this is one of the most iconic blooms of the islands. Hibiscus come in almost every color, though yellow hibiscus is the official color for the state. This flower is popular for fabric patterns on mens aloha shirts, swimsuits, and other tropical attire. Hibiscus are also frequently tucked behind the ear as a form of Hawaiian accessorizing. Foam replicas even make them fun to decorate dogs!
Plumeria – Plumeria grow on trees all over Hawaii. Each blossom carries an intoxicating scent. This lovely flower is often infused into body products and candles to create a sweet and feminine fragrance. Plumeria are also commonly used to string leis in Hawaii, but because they are so fragile they cannot be shipped outside of the state. Nonperishable plumeria lei are a great alternative to the real deal!
Orchid – These flowers are not indigenous to Hawaii, but you’ll see them everywhere! Orchids are as hardy as they are gorgeous, which makes them an ideal flower for leis. They can be expertly sewn into spirals or simply strung into a single bloom pattern. Orchids are also a popular garnish on tropical drinks and alongside exquisite island cuisine.
Everyone’s favorite fall holiday is right around the corner – Halloween! Carving pumpkins, gathering up treats, and putting together a creative costume can leave you feeling tired as a zombie. Luckily, LeiHut is here to help! Here’s our quick guide to a Hawaiian-inspired Halloween!
Hula Girl: Dressing up as a Hawaiian hula girl is an easy and fun costume that’s sure to make you popular at Halloween festivities. Start with a grass skirt and coconut shell bra. If you live in a colder climate, wear leggings and a neutral colored turtleneck shirt underneath for warmth. Accessorize your look with a bunch of artificial leis and clip flowers in your hair. Be ready to sway those hips!
Classic Tourist: This creative costume idea is great for girls or guys and easy to put together. Start by outfitting yourself in a brightly colored aloha shirt paired with cargo shorts. For footwear, make it humorous by wearing socks with sandals or go for the more serious adventurer style and wear hiking boots. Carry a foldable map and wear a camera around your neck.
Surfer Dude (or Dudette): Wear a swim suit and lather up in some tropical scented lotion or sunscreen. Bonus points for putting a thick layer of zinc-oxide sunscreen on your nose. Get the true Hawaiian surfer look by sporting a trucker hat. Locals love ’em for the great sun protection. Make sure to give the “shaka” or “hang loose” hand sign to everyone you pass by folding down your pointer, middle, and ring finger and extending your thumb and pinkie.
