And shortly after the Mother’s Day holiday, families and friends will celebrate student achievement in May and June by giving lei at school graduation ceremonies. Some students will receive so many lei, in fact, that their necks will disappear as their smiles grow wider and wider.
Needless to say, the springs months are an extra-busy time for lei makers and sellers. This includes bulklei.com, which offers discount prices and fast shipping on a wide variety of garlands.
How to Choose Lei for MomsWhat’s the best lei for Mother’s Day? Here are some suggestions to make Mom oh-so happy:
When purchasing lei for the family matriarch, popular choices include garlands with sweet-smelling blossoms and intricate handwork. Two perfect examples of this are the Purple Christina Orchid Lei and Ms. World Pikky Orchid Lei. These lovely creations eloquently express appreciation for all that mothers do for their families throughout the year.
How to Choose Lei for Graduating StudentsWhat’s the best lei for graduation ceremonies? Here are some ideas for honoring your favorite scholars as they clutch those diplomas and proudly embark on the next phases of their lives:
For both male and female students, bright and showy blossoms are sure to be a hit. Consider a Green Pikky Orchid Lei with its elaborate layers of color. This stunning lei conveys a sense of importance and accomplishment.
For girls and women specifically, think feminine and fragrant garlands. You can’t go wrong with a Yellow Shell Lei, Green Shell Lei or White Shell Lei. They’re all attractive and delicate choices.
For boys and men, popular items include the Tiger Kukui Nut Lei, Brown Kukui Nut Lei and Black Kukui Net Lei. All these strands are masculine, durable and inexpensive.
So whether the occasion is Mother’s Day or Graduation Day, nothing says love like a lei.

If there is one Hawaiian accessory that has prevailed over time, the Kukui Nut Lei takes the crown. Originally worn by the islands' alii (Hawaiian for "chiefs,") Kukui Nuts Leis are now a popular item for folks of all social classes.
Kukui Nuts come from the Kukui tree, the official state tree for Hawaii. Kukui trees grow easily all around the islands, and each part of the tree has been put to good use throughout history. Its wood has been constructed into outrigger canoes, its oils have been incorporated into health and beauty products to help heal the body, and of course, its nuts have been artfully strung into leis.
Today, Kukui Nut leis are useful in many ways. Since they are non-perishable, they provide an easy way to give a lei greeting at any time, any place, any season of the year. Great for themed-parties, hula halaus, or as a unique and beautiful necklace! LeiHut's got a special limited time offer on kukui nut leis that will allow you to stock up on savings! Check it out here.
