Vintage Mango Retreat Basket
The Gift: The Vintage Mango Retreat Basket includes the fan favorite Vintage Mango Coconut Premium Body Wash, Lotion and Oil--all full sized 8.5oz each--tucked into a traditional Hawaiian gift basket along with a Manako Mango Dark Chocolate handcrafted bar. Perfect for a tropical spa bathing experience for yourself or a lucky recipient.
The Lauhala Gift Basket: In Old Hawaii, the leaves or "lau" were handwoven to create functional items such as hats, canoe sails, mats and baskets. Today, Hawaiians still enjoy using lauhala baskets for gift giving.
The Vintage Trio: The Mango & Coconut Vintage Trio includes 3 of the top-selling items from this well-loved Collection: Body Wash, Massage Oil and Lotion. This is a full-size Vintage Trio, each product 8.5oz. This trio is sweet, fruity, tropical, and juicy balanced by a note of nuttiness provided by the coconut.
The Chocolate: The Manako Mango Dark Chocolate Bar is inspired by Hawaii's love affair with mangoes! 70% Vegan dark chocolate is paired with the tropical, juicy flavor of mango to create this delectable, sweet treat. Manako is the Hawaiian name for the island's favorite tree fruit. Please see individual bar for more details.
Each bar is crafted from ethically sourced cacao and the highest quality ingredients in Oahu. Shar Tuiasoa of Punky Aloha Studio is the talented local artist behind the cover illustration.
The Story of Mango: Historical accounts suggest Mangoes first arrived in the Hawaiian Islands before 1825. In Hawai’i the fruit thrives with over 500 varieties across the islands! Mango season is a highlight of summer in Hawai’i and brings a pleasant sweet to the heat. It is widely consumed fresh or preserved through pickling, chutney, and sauces.
Sending to a Friend: We are happy to send any gift(s) directly to the recipient, but each gift needs to be a separate order so the correct shipping and shipping details are applied. There will be no pricing enclosed with the gift--just a packing slip (no prices). Mahalo for sharing the aloha!
Gifting: Each lauhala basket is finished with a ribbon. If you are gifting, and would like us to add a handwritten message on a gift tag, please leave details in the note section on checkout. And thank you for sharing the Aloha!
Lei Gift Option: To make this gift even more special, consider adding a Kukui Nut Lei to this basket. This is a traditional style lei, often worn at weddings and during dance performances--and worn by both men and women. Simply add the Kukui Nut Lei to your order (only $9.50) and on checkout in the notes section, ask us to add to the basket contents.
