Gifts for ‘Hawaii Five-0’ fans
For fans of CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0,” the newspaper suggested the following:
• Steal your giftee’s iPod and download Hawaii Magazine’s eight most romantic songs from the Aloha State, or head over to Kona Coffee for a special bag of sought-after extra fancy or peaberry beans grown on the Big Island’s Kona Coast.
• Pick up a faux coconut cup and fill it with the coconut-flavored M&Ms released last winter. Or whip up some brandied pineapples, bananas and other tropical fruit in real coconuts — Group Recipes shows you how — for a homemade touch.
• For the uber-fan of the original or the remake, buy a decent replica of the Five-0 badge at Collectible Badges or the complete first season of the original series.
I wondered if we — the folks who live here and the twee-kers who love the show — could come up with a better list for “Five-0” fans.
Here’s my list to start:
• Show your school spirit with a Kukui High School T-shirt
• The tackiest Aloha shirt you can find (like from Chin Ho Kelly’s wardrobe in tonight’s episode)
• A Hawaiian dictionary. Maybe then they could translate what Chin Ho and his “cuz” Kono Kalakaua are saying to each other.
• Better yet, “Peppo’s Pidgin to Da Max” by Douglas Simonson, Pat Sasaki, and Ken Sakata or “Da Kine Dictionary” by Lee Tonouchi
