Where to find Hawaii gifts and souvenirs that are really from Hawaii

If you’d like to make sure what you bring home from the Islands is actually Island-made, here's where you can get authentic Hawaii-made products

Updated: December 7, 2017

Although most of the items you find in Waikiki or other tourist centers in Hawaii say "Hawaii" on them somewhere, most are not actually made in Hawaii. The grass skirts you see came from the Philippines. Statues of King Kamehameha? Made in China.

If you’d like to make sure what you bring home from the Islands is actually Island-made, we’ve put together a list of stores that specialize in selling authentic Hawaii-made products.

If you’re shopping on Oahu, you might want to look into stores like Native Books/Na Mea Hawaii in Ward Centre.  Stores like Na Mea carry authentic and culturally accurate wares, including handcrafted items, gift baskets, books, clothing CDs and DVDS and even food products.

Here, we present a sampling of retailers statewide specializing in selling authentic Hawaii-made products. They're arranged by island, for your convenience, with web links when available. Many of the retailers also sell their products online, so you can get Hawaii-made products even when you can't be here.

Happy shopping!
