Flights to Hawaii are once again available at a great price, so you can still book that winter getaway to a warm, sandy beach without breaking the bank.
For example, round-trip fares to Honolulu for winter travel are starting at $337 from San Jose, $357 from Los Angeles and San Francisco, $442 from Denver, $480 from Dallas, $522 from Chicago, $568 from D.C., and $582 from New York City (and many other cities). The cheapest dates to fly are in January, February, and the beginning of March.
Of course, there's more to Hawaii than Honolulu, and there are deals across the islands. According to Scott's Cheap Flights, fares to Kauai, Kona and Maui are starting in the $300s. From Denver, travelers can fly to Kona for $362 round-trip.
If you're not inspired to do it for yourself, imagine the look on your loved one's face when you give them a winter trip to Hawaii for Christmas.
