60 Fabulous Gift Ideas


Loving this wrapping paper? Visit Maui's very own, to buy!


On behalf of the people of Maui County, it’s my pleasure to take part in featuring our small businesses in Maui Nō Ka ’Oi Magazine’s “Holiday Gift Guide.” This is a great opportunity to support our family, friends and neighbors who provide Made In Maui County products to delight consumers, especially during this holiday season. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, providing jobs, goods, and services throughout our community. Many businesses support our community by contributing generously to nonprofit groups, schools, churches and charitable causes. Our community is strong because we work together and rely on each other in good times and in bad. This year, we are employing virtual alternatives to the annual Made In Maui County Festival. This Holiday Gift Guide is an example of reaching out to consumers and giving them the opportunity to support local and buy local. The Guide features a variety of products including food and snacks such as Kitch’n Cook’d potato chips; music, fresh produce including Maui Gold pineapple, art, crafts, jewelry, fashions, gifts and collectibles. I want to thank the hardworking staff at the Maui Chamber of Commerce and the County’s Office of Economic Development for continuing to be creative and resilient during these difficult times. Their work helps support and strengthen our diverse economic base. Mahalo to all the vendors who are adapting to changing times to make their products available to the public. This year, I ask everyone to enjoy the holidays a little differently as we celebrate the Season. By working together as an ’ohana, by observing public health and safety measures, we will succeed in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Lastly, my wife Joycelyn and I would like to extend our heartfelt wishes to you and yours for a happy, safe and healthy Holiday Season. As we celebrate the holidays with our ’ohana, we are thankful for the blessings and appreciate this special time for families to reconnect, be grateful and share their love for one another. Together, we can have a safe and healthy community and emerge Maui County Strong into the New Year. Happy Holidays, MICHAEL P. VICTORINO Mayor, County of Maui
