Giving the gift of a lei to show love is a tradition in Hawaii that has long been honored. It allows you to give your loved one a beautiful gift that shows your affection for them. Many materials are right for creating a lei that shows love, but flowers are perhaps most often chosen to represent love. Giving Hawaiian flowers is the perfect way to express love to someone. You can choose leis made from flowers that traditionally represent love, or you can simply choose a lei that has the colors, materials and shapes that you know your loved one would enjoy. Leis made from flowers, leaves, shells, nuts and other materials can be used in leis that will express love to the special person you give it to.
