Where to Find the Freshest Lei
I love going to fresh flower lei shops! The fragrance, the lei makers and the atmosphere never fails to bring a smile to my face. These are just a few of my favorite lei shops on Oahu that have never failed to provide me with fresh flowers at fair prices year round.
Dora’s – One of the lei stands right before you drive into baggage claim A at the International Honolulu Airport. Dora is one of my favorite people and EXTREMELY knowledgable about different lei designs and is always fair with her lei prices.
Pauahi Leis in Chinatown – Tiny lei shop run by Lilia and her daughter Lenny.
Hawaii Flower Lei – Hawaii’s first online lei shipping company with awesome customer service, beautiful packaging and gorgeous leis. (Full disclaimer – I used to work here and the job they do is beautiful!)
Leis by Ron in Mapunapuna – Wholesale prices for all types of fresh lei designs for the general public.
Lin’s Lei Shop in Chinatown – A little pricier for certain leis, but they have friendly customer service and a wider selection than most lei shops in Chinatown. Sneak a peek behind the fridges and you’ll see the lei makers really going at it!
