Design, Nature and Art-Inspired Gifts at Green Mountain Shop

Take your gifts over the top at this new shop, now open in Mānoa.


Begin your ascent, mountaineers! We have quite the tall order today—a mountain of a mission that means getting to the tippity-top of that pile of presents you’re supposed to pick up this holiday season. Talk about aiming high.


Keep your grips about you, though, because we know a shortcut to the summit: The cozy Green Mountain shop in Mānoa Valley will help you keep on top of this season’s gifts with useful and beautiful items for everyone from baby to baba. Owner Kyoko Hyodo has worked as a buyer and merchandiser in Waikīkī and owned a coffee shop and retail stores with her husband in Tokyo, but decided to venture off on her own entrepreneurial endeavor with the top-tier gift shop of her dreams.


Stock up with unconventional kits kids will love, including a paint-your-own-Babushka-doll set and DIY bow and arrows, or luxurious skincare gifts, such as locally made, 100-percent natural Mānoa Lump Charcoal Soap or moisturizing, fine hand creams from Barr Co. Faux-marble and wood-grain water bottles from S’well are sleek gifts for nature-lovers, while world-travelers will find that the sturdy Ethnotek backpack with a colorful South-American-design is the pinnacle of style success. And ain’t no mountain high enough to keep us away from those darling geometric totes, log-patterned pillows and chipper Baggu bags.


Looks like we’ll be hitting peak spoiled this season.


Green Mountain, 2819 Ka‘onawai Place, C2.
