Maile Rainforest & Milk Chocolate Gift Basket
The Gift: The Maile Rainforest & Milk Chocolate Gift Basket contains a full-size Maile Body Wash, Face & Body Mist, Travel Candle and a Manoa Milk Chocolate Bar housed in a traditional Hawaiian lauhala gift basket. Enjoy the scents of the Hawaiian Rainforest while indulging in a delicious Hawaiian milk chocolate bar.
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 Story of Maile: The rarest Hawaiian lei is not made with flowers, but is made with maile leaves from the vine Alyxia stellata. Maile is only found deep in the rainforests of Hawaii. Although worn by commoners and royalty alike, Maile was also the chosen sacrificial offering to the goddess of hula, Laka. Hawaiians believed Maile would offer protection, bestow a natural perfume, bring good luck, treat cuts and promote good rest when put under a pillow.
The Body Wash: Our Hawaiian Maile Body Wash will turn your daily washing regimen into a beautifully fragrant and nourishing experience. Close your eyes and conjure up showering under a waterfall in the middle of a rainforest! 8.5oz.
The Face & Body Mist: A superior mist created with very powerful papaya, bamboo and grapefruit seed extracts as well as exotic fragrance oil. Spray on your face and body (or in the environment) anytime for rejuvenation, skin hydration and sheer enjoyment of the intoxicating fragrance of Maile! 4oz.
The Travel Candle: Take the intoxicating scent of Maile wherever you go with this beautiful candle. 3-4 hours of fragrant burning time with each candle. Our candles are hand poured in a tin container with a lid. 4oz.
The Chocolate: The Hawaiian Milk Chocolate bar is crafted from hand selected beans sourced from quality cacao producers across the Kona and Hilo regions of Hawaii Island (the Big Island). This luscious Hawaiian treat is crafted in a Belgium/Swiss style of chocolate making that uses milk to bring out a creamy, caramel mouthfeel and flavor. Each bar is crafted from ethically sourced cacao and the highest quality ingredients.
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.
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!
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.
