Perfect Wedding gift. Our son and daughter in law were very pleased. Thank you for getting it to them in Maui. They love the kissing turtles

This was the second coconut I purchased for my Daughters second child, with baby's name & dob. She has them sitting side by side on a shelf in the living room to display them. She absolutely loves them & posted them on facebook. Who knows-- someday I may be purchasing a 3rd coconut for another baby announcement!! Absolutely gorgeous!

Coconut Postcards from Maui, Hawaii

Aloha! I am excited to share a little bit of Maui with you through my coconut postcards. As a young girl, I fell in love with the exotic stories of the most beautiful tropical paradise that I heard about from my grandmother from her visits to Hawaii. She told stories of the aloha she received when she visited the islands - being greeted by the beautiful women and presented with a flower lei as she got off the plane, going to luaus, and enjoying the relaxing pace of island life and the friendly people.

As an adult, I got to make my own journey to Hawaii for a vacation and fell in love with the concept of the coconut postcards that I first saw. Of course, I had to send some back home to all my family and friends. It was such a cool way to send a piece of Hawaiiana to everyone and the most unique gift they ever received.

Through lifes' twists and turns, I eventually got to live out my dream and move to Maui and make it my home. When a friend of mine made the tough decision to move her family back to the mainland, I was fortunate to be able to buy her coconut postcard business and make it my own. I have been creating coconut postcards now for 9 years and love the creative outlet it provides me and the fun stories I get to hear from people when they open their mailboxes to find a coconut inside.

I hope that I can work with you to give you a little of that feeling too with your own coconut postcard and piece of Hawaii!

I create custom coconut postcards so that everyone can take home a little piece of that tropical lifestyle with them to their own home. Imagine the excitement and surprise as your family and friends open their mailbox to find a coconut postcard from you inside! Each coconut is hand-designed on Maui using tropical fabrics and paint directly on the coconut. You can add your own personal greeting of up to a couple words on the front of the coconut next to the design. Some examples include names, dates, or special occasion being celebrated. On the back of the coconut, you can add a few words or a short one-line message (it's sooooo much more difficult to write on a coconut than on a typical postcard!).

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment accepted through Paypal. Paypal payment due within 48 hours of purchase. Items are relisted and sales canceled after that time.
Your special purchase will be shipped via USPS priority mail. As I am mailing from Hawaii, the usual time to reach the mainland U.S. is 5-7 days (although I hear that it usually arrives within 3-5 days). I will send you an email to notify you as soon as I mail it out.

Each coconut postcard goes directly into the mail without any additional packaging (which adds to the excitement of seeing it just sitting there when you open your mailbox!). This means that the postage label and other shipping labels will be attached directly to the coconut. It is best to not remove these labels as they may take off the resin coating that protects the coconut and which adds to its' durability during shipping.

FOR HAWAII RESIDENTS ONLY: If you are shipping to an address in the state of Hawaii, please email me as I can offer a discount on shipping costs due to lower postage rates for Hawaii.
Refunds and Exchanges
Each coconut postcard is 100% handmade and made to order. Unless the product is a direct result of our error, no returns are accepted, and all sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each coconut postcard is made to order. Creating your custom order usually takes between 4-7 days. If you are on a tight timeline, please inquire prior to ordering as I will do my best to accomodate your needs. Please include information you would like added to the coconut when you place your order.
