4. Snail Mail Stamped with Love

Handwritten love letters never go out of style, especially with lovely local stationery, such as cards from Bradley & Lily. Stamp your notes with a Mahina ‘Ōlelo Hawaii decorative postage stamp from Haylee Watson Studio. HWS products aim to depict Hawaii through unique designs and are made in small batches to lessen the impact on the environment.

5. Give the Gift of Organization

Sometimes the best gift is a little help with home projects to keep your spaces uncluttered and organized. Consider scheduling services from Revise + Refine, a Hawaii-based professional organizing company. Business owner Chelsea Tsuchida offers in-person assistance with decluttering, dropping off donations, getting organized with custom labels and more.
