Nothing gets us gaga quite like a bundle of blooms, especially the unique, locally grown bundles crafted by trendsetting floral atelier Paiko.
Just in time for the month of love, the botanical boutique has unveiled its latest offering, an ultra-convenient delivery service that will bring the same divine arrangements you love from the brick-and-mortar right to your door.
Big and chunky, the large Monsarrat Bouquet (from $80) is a stunner while the medium sized Kaka’ako Bouquet (from $45) is simpler but just as sweet—both sport the best of the shop’s vibrant tropical and exotic, textured foliage.
The gorgeous Hapa Bouquets ($46 to $80-plus) mix local stems such as Maui anthuriums with spring blooms from abroad. And, because Paiko always keeps it as fresh and farm-to-vase as possible, each bouquet is an adventure: As the seasonal bounty and availability change, the different elements and varieties included evolve.

Arrangements come hand tied and wrapped in butcher paper and linen, or in a glass vase for $12 more. Not that you need to restrict yourself to flowers—unusual houseplants in cool, modern pots and kokedama bonsai moss balls in ceramic dishes can also be ordered.
Delivery is available Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to areas between Kalihi and Hawai‘i Kai for a flat fee of $10 and need to be placed by 5 p.m. the previous day. You can also order online, and pick your posies up for free in the store.
