2.Eco-conscious ladies would love a Bath and Body Trio of lotion, soap and body wash from Bubble Shack. They’re biodegradable, paraben free and locally made. The South Shore Sweetie set ($30) features the refreshing scents of yuzu fruit, tangerine, grapefruit and pomello. For a list of stores carrying the line, see www.bubbleshackhawaii.com.
4. Love letters look so much better on classy stationery, like these cards. They’re hand-stamped on cotton fiber by a company that’s been making paper since 1878. A set of 10 cards, with white, lined envelopes, is $35. www.dempseyandcarroll.com.
5. Flirty and purse-size, Silky Underwear solid perfume ($11.95) smells warm and tropical. Notes of jasmine, jojoba and vetivert shamelessly encourage her to wear the perfume and not much else. Lush: Ala Moana Center, 941-7400, or Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, 923-5874.
6. If her perfect night in involves a bottle of merlot, a couch and a DVD, she’ll be comfy in I Love You Cherry Much 100-percent cotton knit boxers ($24) from David & Goliath at Ala Moana Center, 973-6302.
