Fijian wooden handicrafts can make great gifts or display items for your home and is one of the best things to bring home from a trip to Fiji. Kava bowls (handcarved out of a local hardwood) come in many sizes and styles, and you can find them in nearly any village or any souvenir shop in the cities. Carved turtles, masks, and the “cannibal set” of tools used in that long-abandoned tradition are also popular handicrafts. Depending which countries you're visiting on your route home, make sure you check customs rules on wood, so that you can bring them back safely. Note, the United States does allow Fijian woodcrafts through customs.
