aloha island lei – beautiful leis from hawaii!

Earlier in the summer, I received these beautiful Hawaiian Leis from Aloha Island Lei. They must have figured out my favorite colors or something because I’m sure this is something I would have picked out on my own!

The one and only time I’ve ever been in Hawaii was on my way to the Philippines when I was 11 years old. We were supposed to have just a hour over layover in Honolulu, which dragged out to be much longer (I think maybe 2 or 3 hours). I never got to set foot outside of the airport and I’ve always wondered if they give out lei’s when you enter into Hawaii like I always see on TV. I guess someday I should go and find out! In the meantime though, these beautiful leis managed to give me a tiny taste of Hawaii and just made me want to go visit a little bit more.

A long box arrived with cold packs and inside, there were two leis. My favorite of the two was the stunning Jade Olomana, a jade orchid lei with a purple and white orchid center.

You can see the stunning color of the flowers.

The lei is packed tightly together and I love the bright pop of the purple against the lush green.

The lei is a good length, too. It’s so pretty you can’t help but feel a little bit like a princess wearing one.

The second lei is the Tuberose. This was a much simpler lei with pretty white flowers that gave off the most heavenly scent.

I loved the simplicity of this white flowered lei not to mention it’s wonderful fragrance. 

I ended up giving these lei’s as a gift to Jake’s mom for watching Maya a few times this past summer. She ended up loving them and it was a perfect gift!

If you’re looking for a gift or something unique for a special occasion, consider one of the gorgeous lei’s from Aloha Island Lei.

    I love leis made from tuberose. There’s one made from double tuberose and ilimas that is just stunning. But that green and purple one is also gorgeous!
