Bobble Heads Boggle Pundits

(Honolulu, Hawaii)… The only thing that seems to be bipartisan these days is the interest in President Barack Obama Aloha Bobble Heads. According to the folks at, a Hawaii owned-and-operated virtual retail and wholesale supplier of all things Hawaiian, everyone seems to want an Aloha Obama Bobble Head, causing political pundits to scratch their heads in amazement.
Whether visitors are from red states or blue, the Aloha Obama Bobble Heads are getting positive feedback as the only Hawaiian gift that causes even the most cynical to smile. Local residents, too, are proudly displaying Hawaiian-born President Obama’s Aloha Bobble Heads and Obama Aloha Dashboard dolls, promoting local pride and ownership of the nation’s 44th President.
Unlike some of our recent tax issues, the novelty dolls are easy on the wallet, selling for just $16.90 for a six-inch, handcrafted Island-inspired design of President Obama. The appeal seems to be that these are Hawaii versions of Obama Bobble Heads and were created as a collector’s item and conversation piece – a tribute to Obama and his Hawaii birthplace.
In addition to the Aloha Obama Bobble Head, a selection of Obama dashboard figurines is catching the eye of Dems and their Republican counterparts as well. Obama Going Surfing, with Obama carrying a surfboard and giving a “shaka” sign, retails for $10.90 at six inches or $7.90 at four inches. The ukulele playing Obama Dashboard Doll is $9.90 for the six-inch version or $7.90 for the four-inch mini-version.
Hawaii’s visitors and residents alike are making their way to the warehouse in Kailua, Oahu (not far from where President Obama last vacationed with his family) to scoop up this latest rage although shoppers should call first to make sure the warehouse is open. Also, folks from Maine to California and from Alaska to Florida don’t have to wait for a Hawaii vacation to get a presidential bobble head. Stay-cationers can still get a piece of paradise by ordering online at, a division of Kamakani Enterprises, Inc., is the online source for Hawaiiana and Tiki products, including custom carvings, masks, and indoor and outdoor Tiki and tropical accessories. Established in 2000, has been recognized by Retail Merchants of Hawaii as the 2008 “E-Commerce Retail Business of the Year.” For more information, visit:

Hawaiian Gift Ideas By

The habit of giving gifts, new and novel gift items, and gift ideas had proliferated and become global after the arrival of Internet marketing. However, gift materials and gift ideas of certain regions had been in the forefront due to their special nature of universal appeal and ingenious craftsmanship. Hawaiian gift ideas and gift items are among the most sought after products in any part of the world. Before taking a look at the gift ideas of Hawaii, it would be better if we understand the basic culture of Hawaii, where gift is an inseparable part of the lives of the people of this group of islands. The tradition of Hawaiian gifts had come from the Polynesian heritage of Hawaii and is blended with their culture.

When somebody is invited to a party in another person’s house, it is customary for Hawaiians to carry a food item like a dessert as a small gift to the party. The food offering in the party itself is part of the gift-giving culture. This had led to the donation of leftovers of party food items to homeless people. Similarly, whenever an individual of Hawaii returns from a trip, it is customary to bring back at least one or two gifts to family members and close friends and relatives. Such gifts are addressed by the Japanese word, ‘omiyage’, the Hawaiian term, ‘makana’, or the Samoan name, ‘oso’. At the same time, local Hawaiians will take local gifts or food items to friends and relatives in the places that they visit, when they travel out of Hawaii.

Another Hawaiian custom is to respond either with a gift or money when somebody offers a gift or does a service to you. Even if that person does not accept the money offered by you, you must at least make the offer. Hence, the practice of giving and accepting gifts is ingrained in the Hawaiian culture. At, we have made it our policy to help people follow this endearing tradition of offering Hawaiian gifts by providing them with the maximum variety of gift items and gift ideas. initially conducted a detailed research in Hawaii on the various gift items and gift ideas that were available.

Shipping A Giant Tiki By

Alright, so now the large Tiki is carved and you are getting ready to ship it to your customer. What is the best way to get it to its final destination in one piece?
As mentioned in our previous blog, the use of a forklift is a must since the Tiki could weigh as much as 800 lbs. Set up a custom pallet so that the tiki can rest flat on it without sticking out at all; that will prevent the shipper from damaging it when loading and unloading. In order to increase the stability of the Tiki, nail some 1" X 1" next to the head, butt and base.

Secure the Tiki with straps, 3 or 4 should do the trick. You can either stop right there and the Tiki is ready to go if the carrier will let you ship a parcel that is not stackable. In some cases, you may need to create a complete casing and build it strong enough to support other parcels on top of it.

Looking for large Tiki for your backyard? Look no further! At, we carry the largest selection of hand carved Tikis 8 feet and up. From Bishop Museum replicas to Polynesian Cultural Center Tikis, we guarantee to make your neighbor sick when you unveil your Tiki at your next SuperBowl luau party!

Outdoor coconut Tikis: How To Give A Beautiful Finish by Tikimaster?

Tikis made of coconut or palm wood are usually the best economic way to enhance your pool or outdoor area. Usually they are fairly affordable for about $200 for a 40", $300 for a 60" and $450 for a 70". While the grain of the coconut can be a little "boring" compare to Acacia Koa, Monkey Pod or other tropical wood, there are ways to enlight the finish of a coconut Tiki.

We recommend to use Thompson water sealant for outdoor use to give a natural finish which will protect the Tiki carving against the element.

If you wish to give a stain to your Tiki sculpture then a Polyehturene from Min-Wax works great! The beauty is that you can choose from many available different finish (from light brown to mahogany).

Another option is to burn with a torch the outer carvings of the Tiki which will bring some accents to it. Again upon completion apply a clear finish to protect the Tiki.

At last, if you wish to get your paint brushes out... a painted coconut can be a lot of fun and become a conversation piece at your next barbecue party.

Hawaiian Silk Leis - Bring Hawaii To Your Door Steps By Tikimaster

History of the Hawaiian Lei: It is widely believed, the first Polynesian settlers to the Hawaiian islands arrived during the 12th century. Amongst the necessary and favorite possessions brought, was the art and traditions of the lei. The early leis of Hawaii were actually Polynesian, resembling those found in other parts of Polynesia. These early leis help to explain the story of man' existence in time and space.
Early uses of the leis included: farmers giving a blessing of the gods upon fields and crops, ornaments for dancers, healing priests using leis for healing rites, and for sacred Hawaiian rituals. In addition, leis were symbols of chiefly rank and love and lovemaking. Gods and goddesses favored them and poets sang their praises.
The craft of lei making was further advanced by modern Hawaiians, who had the luxury of an inflow of numerous varieties of flowers. Among the many plants and flowers introduced during the 19th century by travelers and immigrants were carnations, gardenias, jasmine, marigolds, pansies, plumeria, roses and violets. As a result, the original Hawaiian lei was redesigned and restructured.oday in Hawaii, leis are presented around the head and shoulders of a special person. Presenting a lei signifies admiration, respect and honor towards the individual. Leis are also given during special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, weddings and all memorable moments in someone's life.
