If crystal healing isn’t in your alternative medicine cabinet, you may wonder how the mystical crystal market hasn’t become saturated (we’re guessing it must be a hippie food source). But however the demand for esoteric stones is kept up, rock collecting has hard science (ba dum ching!) joys, too.
Hawaii is already Mecca for marine biologists—and we’ve got volcanos. Why not inspire a future geologist by hooking up your keiki with some mind-blowing geodes and a good book. For the former, check out Green Lotus and Crystal Dreams; for the latter, visit Friends of the Library and Old Lahaina Book Emporium. Oh, and for more local lit (and other cool stuff like bath products), hit up the gift shops at the Bailey House Museum and Wo Hing Temple (memberships make good gifts, too).
