OluKai Holiday Gift Guide 2022: The Best Gifts for Every Occasion

It feels good to give. As a premium footwear brand that is guided by aloha, we do our best to perpetuate that belief—especially around the holiday season.


To share the spirit, we put together a guide to holiday gifting for everyone on your list. Each pair of footwear on this list is designed to give comfort, give joy, and give back. There’s no better way to say mahalo (thank you) to the people you love most.


By the way, a portion of proceeds from every pair of OluKai sold to the Ama OluKai Foundation and back into Hawaiian communities. Your support has helped us rebuild 800-year-old fish-pond walls, repair traditional canoes, increase Hawai‘i’s sustainable food sources, teach ocean safety to children, and so much more. We couldn’t have done it without you.


Now, onto those gift ideas.

Gifts You Can Only Find Online


If you are looking for the latest and greatest styles from OluKai, you've found the perfect collection. Our newest web exclusive shoe, boot, and slipper styles feature unique materializations and silhouettes you won't find anywhere else. Be sure to order quick as these styles have limited availability. 

Gifts For The Beach


We get it. The beach is our happy place too. If your loved one prefers to spend their days near, on, or in the ocean, then they’ll love these premium picks. Made with comfortable, water-resistant materials that dry quickly and our Wet Grip Rubber outsole for top-notch traction on slippery rocks or boat decks, you really can’t go wrong. Make sure they’re ready for all the sand, surf, and sunny days ahead. P.S. Beach sandals make for great stocking stuffers.




Gifts For Getting Cozy


Comfort is our namesake (“Olu” means comfort in Hawaiian), so we don’t mess around when it comes to making the coziest footwear you can find. If the person in your life loves to stay warm and bundled at all times, then they need a pair of ultra-premium slippers on foot. This collection is full of materials like 100% genuine shearling, nubuck leather, and wool to keep their mistletoes nice and toasty—no matter where they go.




Gifts For Exploration


For those adventurous types, nothing feels as joyful as crisp mountain air or a weekend spent in the great outdoors. Make sure their feet stay warm no matter where they roam with this soft yet rugged collection. We crafted many of these styles with water-resistant materials that keep inclement weather out while trapping heat in, using nature as our main source of design inspiration. Throw in some durable outsoles for extra stability and sturdiness on the trail, and you’ve got yourself the perfect gift for the explorers in your life.




Gifts For Out & About


Gift shopping for someone who always seems to be dashing around? Surf checks or hikes in the morning. Client meetings in the afternoon. Pau hana (happy hour) at sunset with friends. Whatever their busy schedule has in store, this easygoing collection is designed to keep up—and look good doing it. Our team picked out styles that feel both versatile and put-together, which means they can spend less time deciding what to wear, and more time getting after the day.




Gifts For Resort Relaxation


For the close friend, significant other, or ‘ohana (family) member who loves nothing more than jet-setting to new, luxurious destinations, we suggest going premium. From thoughtfully crafted leather styles to beach standouts to the vacation-worthy linen espadrille, this collection of holiday gift ideas has resort wear covered. Inspired by the feeling of stepping into wet sand, the footbeds are contoured for all-day, all-night comfort. They’re perfect for scenic excursions or city exploration.




Gifts For The Course


Make their day on the fairway even more jolly with the Aloha Golf collection. We designed these shoes to be the most comfortable, most supportive ones on the course. Plus, they have performance features that would make any golfer's eyes light up. We’re talking water and stain-resistant materials, responsive midsoles for all-day comfort, and multi-directional traction for stability and grip. All you need is a bow on top and you have the best Christmas gift for the golfer.




The Best Last Minute Gift


If you’re running low on time, or just don’t know which style or size to choose, then our digital gift cards are here to save the day. Skip the decision-making and let them find the perfect pair on their own time. It’s a win-win and we can deliver it to your inbox at Reindeer-level speed.
