As we roll into the 2021 holiday season, we wanted to inspire your holiday shopping with a list of small Maui businesses that make shopping local a walk on the beach! Shopping local is one of the best ways to support our community and give back to those striving to make Maui a better place. We live on an island full of hidden gems, brilliant artists, generous creators, and hard-working small business owners who make Maui the beautiful place that is.
This year, let's focus on uplifting Maui and all who help make it shine!

The gift that keeps on giving (back to the environment). A new take on wrapping paper, Wrappily, finds a new purpose for old newspaper presses, creating beautiful double-sided patterns printed on 100% recyclable newsprint. Wrapping paper inside of wrapping paper? I can't think of a better gift.
