   Buying gifts for the musician in your life can be daunting. But don't fret! We have created an Ohana ukulele gift guide to help you out!


Gifts for the budding musician

   With so many colors to chose from, the colorful SK-10s are sure to captivate the budding musician! The SK-10s are among the most popular for students and beginners for their great construction. Many schools use them as their choice for education and teaching ukulele lessons. These ukuleles have quality and sound in mind just like everything we do. We make sure these are still quality instruments that stay in tune and are properly set up, so they are able to encourage beginners to keep practicing and inspire them to continue to learn. You can also take advantage of our partnership with music educator, Jeffrey Thomas, and get a first ukulele lesson for FREE here!



Staff Pick:

SK-10TQ, our turquoise soprano—one of our favorite colors! Look at that beautiful satin finish!



For the hard-to-buy musician

   Need something for the collector who seems to have everything? Our ukulele gift guide makes it easier to narrow down the possibilities! Check out our selection of rarities, oddities, and other intriguing gifts that are sure to please the music enthusiast in your life! Try our Limited Edition line, for those that want to go beyond the traditional!  Composed of ukuleles that feature rare woods, significant sound, and attractive aesthetics. These ukuleles were designed to be exceptional. We are always looking for unique wood combinations to provide the best sound possible. Add to their already great ukulele collection with one of our Rhythm line instruments! Designed and built to compliment and further enrich the ukulele, the Ohana Bongolele® and our all solid mahogany Shakerlele® (now available in Koa too!) are perfect additions to any jam session. Take a look at our unique models of varying ukuleles—from unique scale to more than your typical 4-strings, we are only scratching the surface. These guys are made for the musically venturesome!


Steph's Pick:

   My very favorite of our unique models is the SK-250M in all solid cedar and acacia. The extended scale makes this particular uke comfortable to play for everyone, and I just love the tone of a cedar soundboard (that abalone ain't hard on the eyes either!)



Making it personal with customization:

   The Ohana DIY Ukulele Kits are set up and designed in a way that provides players with the ability of customization without losing the playing capabilities of the ukulele. Modeled after our SK-10s, these blank ukuleles provide the perfect basis to build and create a ukulele as unique as the individual. Available in soprano and concert sizes, these Kits come partially assembled providing a faster assembly! Personalize them as a gift, or give them as is. The choices are endless!


   Pair the Ohana DIY Kit with a Gigy bag for the ultimate customization package! Gigy offers unique customizable hand made gig bags. Choose your colors, and various front pocket designs! Check out their website for more information.

For the traveling artist

   No ukulele gift guide can be complete without providing you with stylish options to protect your favorite 4-stringed instrument! With the Ohana DB2-XX deluxe double gig bag you can keep your ukuleles safe! Carry two ukuleles at the same time! Ideal for travel, and good for storing essentials all in one place. Fits in an airplane overhead compartment– artist tested! Available in concert and tenor size, with orange, blue or a gray accent.


    Or try our hardshell cases, which feature arched top designs to better protect your Ohana Ukuleles. If you're looking for something lighter, we have soft cases as well! Travel in fashion with our Ohana totes! Featuring a secured interior with protective mesh and zipper. Big enough to fit our sopranissimo ukuleles in our short scale line with and without a case, so you can take all your ukulele essentials with you! Ideal for when you have places to go after a good ukulele jam session.


Steph's Pick:

   One of the coolest new bags we debuted in 2017 is our deluxe soft case in faux leather, UCS-XX BO. These cases remind me of one typically used for violins. The backpack style carrying straps make it easy to travel with a uke while keeping hands free!


Ohana synthetic leather ukulele case


Well shucks, this is embarrassing—looks like we no longer carry the UCS-XX BO cases and the DB2-XX double deluxe gig bags. If you'd still like one of these beloved Ohana items, check with your local dealer to see if they have any left. If not, don't fret, here are some alternatives to a lightweight case here: UCS-XX BK, DB-XX BK
