Holiday Markets & Local Gifts
For goods, treats, and special holiday experiences, look for our Holidaze Pop-Ups, bringing talented local artists, small businesses, pop-up workshops, and galleries to the Prince Waikiki lobby every Friday in December. Check a few names off your list at the Mele Kalikimaka Marketplace, a one-stop local holiday shop for made-in-Hawaii products, gifts, and crafts. If buying a gift doesn’t feel personal enough, get creative at the Waikiki Aquarium’s Holiday Gift Making Workshop, where you’ll learn techniques like quilling, paper layering, and embossing to create a one-of-a-kind present.
Up for a short drive? Visit the Hukilau Marketplace at The Polynesian Cultural Center, a throwback to 1950s Hawaii offering nostalgic food and local goods. During the holidays, this community destination comes alive with festive family activities, including train rides, scavenger hunts, pictures with Santa, live music, and more special events.
Want to do your holiday shopping without leaving Prince Waikiki? Make your way to the brand-new Mana Up, now open in our lobby! Here, you can shop for everything from food to fashion, beauty to home decor — all crafted by local makers and artisans using locally-sourced ingredients and products. There’s no better way to take an authentic piece of O‘ahu home with you!
