If you have arrived in the islands, or are close with someone from Hawai'i, you have most likely received a lei. It's a special feeling to have your neck adorned by a fragrant lei, handmade, using the most tropical flowers. In Hawaii, the lei is a symbol of love, congratulations and respect. Traditionally lei are worn to welcome someone, say goodbye, celebrate weddings, birthday's, graduations, mothers day, fathers day, and especially Lei Day (May 1st.) Giving lei is a great gift idea, especially if someone you know has a special affinity to the islands or if you are wanting to introduce someone to your love for Hawai'i. If someone you know is coming to visit for the holidays, or celebrating an important event, make them feel special by ordering them a lei from hanaflowers.com. Imagine the surprise on their face by your creative gesture. The best part is they can always dry it and keep it as a reminder of the special gift they received on that special day. Our Lei are handmade when ordered, and we ship from Hawai'i anywhere you'd like. We have the most simple lei, like the Single Dendrobium Orchid to the more intricate Royal Maile Lei with Tuberose.
