Father’s Day gift ideas from favorite local stores

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re still working on your shopping list, no worries. We checked out some favorite shops in Kailua Town and have assembled some Dad-worthy gift ideas. Add a take-out meal from one of his favorite restaurants, hand-made cards from the kids and call it a successful celebration!

Body Basics


Lanikai Bath and Body makes gift-giving easy for the “rock” of your life with four gift set options ($32-$62.50) in its Pohaku Island Sandalwood product line. Musky, yet light, this refreshing collection is made with organic botanical extracts and natural oils of avocado, kukui, macadamia and vitamin E.

You also might opt for Lanikai’s invigorating, all-natural Primo Beer soap, with its light bay rum fragrance. It does triple duty as a hand/body soap, shampoo bar or shaving bar. A 3-bar set includes a bamboo soap dish and loofah sponge ($24.50).

All Father’s Day gift sets are packaged in a complimentary gift bag with a personalized tag.

In the (Surf) Zone

Kimo’s Surf Hut

New Dad, old Dad, surfer Dad or not, Kimo’s Surf Hut at the entrance to Kailua Town has hundreds of new, used and surfboards and SUPs for all skill levels – plus all the accessories to get Dad up and riding or to change-up his current ride. As owner James “Kimo” Moore likes to say, they have every board for every surfer for every break.

Wardrobe Re-boot

It’s always tee-shirt weather in Hawaii, and with the arrival of summer (not to mention three months of working from home), it’s a perfect time to recharge Dad’s casual wardrobe.


For more than three decades, Island Snow has been a Kailua Town fixture, with its tasty combo of authentic Hawaiian shave ice and premium, locally designed clothing and collaborations with national brands. For Father’s Day, consider this combo: a Kailua Boys tee ($28) and matching boys’ tee ($22) or onesie ($25). And, yes, there are Kailua Girls onesies, too! Accessorize the look with Island Snow’s 100% water-resistant wet/dry 10L bag ($30). Whether he’s trekking through a rainforest or paddling out to the Mokes, Dad’s cellphone, car keys and protein bars will be safe from the elements.

You can always count on Crazy Shirts to deliver the right message, for the right occasion, on the back of a shirt. We’re loving their new Grill Sergeant coffee-dyed tee ($35) that lets folks know who rules the BBQ. Plus it offers 50+ SPF protection! Crazy Shirts also has created a collection of quick-drying, washable cloth face masks ($20) to protect Dad in style (plus 10% of mask sales is donated to the American Red Cross Hawaii Chapter).
