Sor­ry to relay this mes­sage, but this is for all of you who plan on get­ting your favorite teach­ers and staff gifts for the end of the year.…

The state’s gift guide­lines pro­vide that the fol­low­ing are accept­able (these guide­lines may not apply for employ­ees whose offi­cial duties include pro­cure­ment):

  1. “Gifts of Alo­ha” — mod­est gifts of nom­i­nal val­ue tra­di­tion­al­ly giv­en as part of Hawai­ian cul­ture as a ges­ture of alo­ha or good­will such as a flower lei or a box of cook­ies to share with the office — and oth­er gifts of nom­i­nal val­ue such as small pro­mo­tion­al busi­ness items (e.g. pens with com­pa­ny logo).

  2. Meals and “Food and Drink” types of events val­ued at under $25.  (This lim­it applies to the whole event.)

In oth­er words, keep your gift val­ue $24.99 or less!
