Giving a lei as a way to congratulate someone is a great way to show how much you care. Whether you are congratulating them for graduating, for getting a promotion, for reaching a goal or for anything else they may be proud of, you can show much you care by presenting them with a lovely lei for the occasion. Choose a lei that will appeal to the recipient and that will be fun to wear for the occasion. A masculine lei that is made from ti leaves, maile leaves or kukui nuts may be right for a man you are congratulating. Many women prefer a lei of flowers, shells or berries. Lovely flowers with delicate shapes and expressive colors are the perfect way to congratulate a woman who has an important occasion.
