Hawaii Flower Lei

One of the many joys of living in Honolulu for so many years was the receiving and giving of lei - an ancient Polynesian custom of showing love and affection and even admiration to the wearer from the giver.  Tropical flowers are the most beautiful for weaving into lei to wear around the neck, or for women, wahine in Hawaiian, (pronounced wa-hee-nay) the Haku Lei is worn on the head

There is much more information on the Hawaii Flower Lei website and I can't think of a better Christmas surprise than to give a Hawaiian Lei to a loved one on Christmas morning or on special occasion days like birthdays, anniversaries and weddings.  One occasion that many lei are given to the recipient is on their graduation day from High School or College or University.
   

Depending on how many relatives and friends the graduating student has determines whether or not he/she can see over the many lei they are wearing around their neck! To illustrate this tradition, here's a photo of a graduating student laden with flower lei from the Hawaii Flower Lei website.

 

Here are just some of the beautiful lei available from the Hawaii Flower Lei website.  The act of giving a lei is a very special as is the receiving of a lei.

 

White Haku Lei

White Haku Lei

The traditional haku-style lei is commonly worn by the bride, and makes a wonderful accent to a bridesmaid or flower girl ensemble.

The word “haku” refers to the method of braiding foliage such as flowers and ferns on a natural base material like ti or banana leaves. The color is often all white for the bride, but our haku leis can be custom made with any combination of multi-colored flowers.

 

Red Tulip Anthuriums

These delightful tropical flowers will brighten anyone's day!

Each order includes 12 freshly cut Tulip Anthuriums and two sprigs of greenery (exactly as shown). These small tropical flowers make a big impression!
 

 

Ti Leaf and Orchid Lei


Ti Leaf/Orchid Lei

Simple and long-lasting, this open-ended ti leaf lei (pronounced tee) is often given for good luck. The ancient Hawaiians believed that the Ti plant possessed healing powers and offered protection against evil. Ti leaves are carefully braided to create a remarkably sturdy lei.

 

Red Micro Ginger Lei

Red Micro Ginger Lei

Red Hawaiian Torch Ginger petals are used as a dramatic accent in this Micronesian-style Ginger Lei. The intoxicating scent of this beautiful lei will transport you to a tropical paradise. Perfect for your Ku'uipo, or sweetheart.

 

Ti Leaf and He'e Berry Lei

Ti Leaf and He'e Berry Lei

This He'e Berry and Ti Leaf Lei is a wonderfully colorful and durable choice for men and women - our ti leaf lei is wrapped around a single strand He'e Berry Lei.

Often given during the holidays, the He'e Berry, or Christmas Berry is a festive non-fragrant bud that grows in the Hawaiian rainforests.

This was our favorite lei to give friends at Christmas.
