Take Home a Christmas KeepsakeMaui

While Christmas ornaments may not be the first thing that pops into your head when you think of a tropical vacation, many visitors find their way to LAHAINA CHRISTMAS STORE (santaspen.com) to stock up on all their holiday souvenirs.

The cheerful storefront is a superb place to personalize Hawaiian-style holiday ornaments to remember your Maui vacation yuletide season after season.

Here, you’ll find yourself immersed in Santa’s workshop— ornaments hanging from every shelf, reindeer trinkets wearing lei and even tiki hut gingerbread houses. For a special keepsake that will remind you of your adventures in Maui, pick an ornament to personalize with your name, child’s name, anniversary date or even your dog’s name— the options are endless!

After all, Hawai‘i celebrates its own unique set of Christmas traditions: “MELE KALIKIMAKA” is the greeting kama‘aina use and Santa wears ALOHA SHIRTS, not winter coats.

Visitors can create their own Maui Christmas with a keepsake ornament from LAHAINA CHRISTMAS STORE, located inside the famous Koa’s Seaside Grill Restaurant (839 Front St.).
