As a visitor on this land, Opening Gift would like to begin, by acknowledging the Native Hawaiian people, their descendants; and the relationship between the Aina and people where we respectfully call home, operate our business and where Opening Gift was born.
Who We Are.
Opening Gift is an artisan gifting company that helps service-based professionals and others thank their most important clients. Each gift bundle is thoughtfully made and locally sourced.
We are a boutique business that is centered around educating and inspiring others about the restoration of the Kalo plant, and is focused on giving back to Hawaiian standing organizations such as Nation of Hawaii and Aloha First.
From The Founder & Creative Director
A few years ago I had a shift in life’s path that put me on a mission of healing and learning more about myself. I discovered a love for Kalo, getting more involved in the Hawaiian community and started digging deeper into my own Indigenous roots. These events eventually led me to launching Opening Gift in 2020. I noticed a need in the service-based community and wanted to help others with providing more meaningful gifts while making the ordering and pick up process seamless; but also adding value. Supporting local, small businesses and other artisans is very important to me when choosing items to go into our gift baskets and bundles. Thank you to my team for the continued bts support and to our clients for all that you do — Opening Gift wouldn’t be what it is today with out you.
