Island Mango Tropical Sensations Basket
The Gift: This Island Mango Tropical Sensations Basket includes a Island Mango Lotion and Candle and a Manako Mango Dark Chocolate Bar--all tucked into a traditional Hawaiian lauhala gift basket. Perfect for a tropical spa bathing experience for yourself or a lucky recipient. Share the aloha and we will include a gift card on request (with a hand written note if you leave us a note on checkout)
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 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.
The Island Mango Lotion & Candle:
Island Mango Lotion with Sweet Natural Coconut is luscious and bursting with the fragrance of sultry, tropical nights! Rich, hydrating lotion provides intense moisturizing anytime—but also offers soothing relief after a day in the sun. Made with top quality natural and organic ingredients, on Maui, exclusively by Island Essence.
The Island Mango Candle is created with candle wax from Oahu and blended with sweet and fruit mango and coconut fragrance oils. Paradise awaits wherever you are—enjoy at home or tuck in your suitcase to travel as the 4oz size is perfect.
Free Gift Message Option: On request, we are happy to include a free handwritten message on a gift tag--simply enter your message in the note section on checkout. Father's Day--if you are celebrating your Dad, let us know and we will include a "Happy Father's Day" gift tag (and personalized message).
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!
Extra 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.
