Lei Chic: Great Local Gifts

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Three days left and all you have from emergency rounds of Christmas shopping is a headache.

Knock off the rest of those left on your list, naughty and nice, with a few ideas from Lei Chic.

Beer and alcohol bottle glasses and lamps - $7 - $15, Hawaiian Blown Glass

Hauula-based Hawaiian Blown Glass works with bars and hotels to collect the bottles they turn into cool glasses and vases.  Each is hand finished and even larger vases are under $20.  These were so popular, almost none of the ones we pulled to show on Sunrise made it back to the North Shore - co-workers snapped them up the moment they saw them.

You have one more chance to grab yours before Christmas - at the special Christmas Eve edition of the Haleiwa Farmers Market.  Saturday, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the junction of Kamehameha and Joseph Leong highways.

Melissa and Doug Sidekicks sand toys - $15.99, Kahala Kids in Kahala Mall.

Parents know Melissa and Doug toys for their hardiness and creativity.  The popular line also makes playthings perfect for the beach such as a cupcake kit with crab, turtle, and other ocean-inspired molds for toppers and a cookie kit complete with rolling pin and fun-shaped "cookie" cutters.

 

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Making Kit - $22, Madre Chocolate

These local chocolate-making masters teach hands on bean-to-bar classes periodically. But now, they've packaged their knowledge in one easy to follow kit containing cacao beans, perfectly roasted nibs, 70 percent Hawaiian chocolate, and step-by-step instructions for a process using common household appliances. Add whatever you want for a custom flavor of your favorite dessert.

Available on <a href="http://www.madrechocolate.com">MadreChocolate.com</a>, in the Kailua store at 20-A Kainehe St., and the kits have just been delivered to Whole Foods, Kahala.

 

Keiki T-shirts and Morgan Lane Tanner jewelry - Shirts are $20, jewelry begins at $30 at Nuinani in Kailua

Nuinani just launched this summer with a line of cushy organic and recycled polyester shirts, tanks, and hoodies hand printed with Nuinani's custom designs.  Just a week ago, the Windward Oahu business opened a temporary store stocked with the first run of their new kids line.

While you're there, check out Morgan Lane Tanner's necklaces and earrings created from vintage postcards for a subtle island flare.
