We are on a mission to make YOU the gifting expert with memorable gifts that STAND OUT.

The best part? We take care of all the details, from design to delivery.

As a Hawaii-based business, we are committed to GIFTING WITH ALOHA.


Hi! My name is Janean; a boy-mom with a knack for spontaneous dance parties, a ninja-like ability to plan surprises (and mix up a mean margarita), and an adventurous streak that mostly involves dirt bikes and surfboards.

I started The Papaya Exchange in 2016 because of my love for packaging design and supporting local businesses. My goal is for everything to be a clean experience for our clients from our website to our final products and delivery. We guide you, step-by-step, so that you take all the credit without all the hassle.


Ana joined our production team in 2020, fulfilling online and corporate orders. Her joy and genuine care for others, attention to detail, and love for design made her the perfect fit as our lead account manager where she handles custom gift designs, sourcing new products, and taking care of our ongoing corporate clients. Here's a little introduction from Ana:

I love coffee more than ANYTHING, well...okay, maybe that’s a stretch ;) I am a laid back but easily excitable person and could spend all day doing art if I have the time. I am very passionate about interior decorating and love to refurbish old furniture. I have a dog that steals the heart of anyone who meets him, his name is Cookie! But, most of all, I absolutely love being out in nature and spending time with family and friends.
