    My mom is on vacation in Hawaii. She wants to get me something and has threatened to punch me when she gets back if I don't come up with something I want. Problem is I can't think of anything I want that she's not already gotten me. She's bringing me a pineapple, a tshirt from the Bonsai Pipeline, and sand and ocean water from the beaches she's visited.

    I asked for a surfboard shaped rug that I saw online, but she couldn't find one, so I told her to get me a tiki of some kind, like candles or a statue, but she insists that's not enough. So people who have been there, what's something cool that she could bring back for me?

    She's on whatever island it is that has the pipeline/diamondhead, and I didn't think she's going to any of the other islands, so something from there, or that can be found on all the islands.

    thanks for any help! I don't want to get punched :p

    Also, she's bringing my brother and husband and dad Hulu girls for their dashboards, I don't want one, ukele's for my brother and husband, can't play music, and a very loud hawaiian shirt for my husband, and I'd never ever be caught dead in something like that. :p

    The last time I was there, I found a nice tote bag in a Hawaiian print. I liked the idea of a hawaiian shirt, but knew I would never wear something with that loud of a print. The tote bag seemed like a good compromise, and I've ended up using it mostly as a bag to carry dog stuff in when we travel.

    I was going to suggest this also, but if you don't drink coffee that doesn't help now does it? LOL!

    I will say, I am normally not much of a coffee drinker myself. However, if you ever wanted to enjoy GOOD coffee... OMG THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT!!! (My MIL just got back from Hawaii a couple weeks ago and had a couple bags of this shipped to us, so I literally have this coffee RIGHT NOW.)




    Something else is she could look out for local art vendors doing custom work. When my husband (boyfriend at the time) went to Hawaii several years ago, he brought back a gorgeous painting of my name done in Hawaiian brush art. This example isn't quite the same, but the idea is similar:

    The authentic Hawaiian version really is incredible. And my husband said that watching them paint it was equally amazing.

    Bwahahahahaha. It took me a minute to realize that totally did NOT say your name. I was looking at it and going, "hmmmm, I'm pretty sure that says GREGG :p

    That's an awesome totally cool idea. I'll have to see if she can find someone doing that!
