We are here to help plan and guide you through this unique gift for your special day and celebration. Many people prefer to receive the gift of an experience instead of a tangible object.

We love working with Henry and Justin of Paradise Monarchs! The service is wonderful leading up to the butterfly and chrysalis delivery, at the actual delivery, and even after, with thoughtful follow up via email. Of course, the butterflies and chrysalis boxes were a hit, and such a special addition to the birthday party we planned, allowing the birthday celebrant to make a wish upon releasing her butterflies. Great job, Paradise Monarchs!!!

Henry and his team was so kind and wonderful people to work with. We had gotten married in O'ahu and wanted our guest to have a unique experience. As wedding favours, we gifted our guest chrysalis boxes and they all raved about this experience till this day. Henry and the team was very flexible and responsive throughout the whole experience. Thank you so much for making our wedding so special!

Looking for the perfect wedding favor? Look no further!... We included these gorgeous chrysalis boxes as wedding favors and guests were thrilled! ... (our guests) shared with us how much they enjoyed the experience. Our favor boxes came with a card with a photo of us and a personalized message to our guests... All in all, I would definitely recommend the chrysalis boxes to anyone looking for a special gift, party favor, photo shoot prop, or just a fun learning experience for kids!

This was such a gorgeous and meaningful experience to watch our butterfly emerge over two days and then to release it out into the world. I hadn't thought that this would be something I would ever get to witness and it was not only special, but I love the idea that we are helping the health of the butterfly population. I highly recommend this as a gift, for any occasion or ideally for your wedding or elopement.

The live monarch chrysalis gift favors are so different, and such a beautiful, unique experience! We loved the entire process of seeing our butterfly emerge from it's chrysalis overnight. It's great also knowing that the process helps in keeping the butterflies from becoming an endangered species.

...We wanted to celebrate our wedding and make it memorable for our guests and Paradise Monarchs did just that for us! ... The best part about it was that a few days to a week later after our wedding, all our guests reached out to us to congratulate us again and tell us what a wonderful gift the chrysalids were and informed us that they it had turned into a butterfly. Everybody loved it and said it was the best wedding favor that they had ever received.

Saw Paradise Monarch on Wedding Wire and the Knot and decided to reach out to them for our wedding as a favor. We received a reply immediately. Super attentive service and such a memorable experience for our wedding and our guests. This was the highlight of the event. Definitely recommend if you're not sure what to gift your guests. It's the most unique gift I have ever seen!
