Depending on your personal tastes, there’s a range of interesting souvenirs to bring home from your vacation to Turks and Caicos Islands. If you’re an ocean lover, you’ll want to take home a majestic conch shell. Besides housing tasty soft, succulent conch, their vibrant pink markings are beautiful and make them the perfect decorative souvenir. People who like to entertain may be more enchanted with a bottle of the locally made rum; look for the Lucayan, Bambarra or Turks Head brands. Other good choices include locally made handicrafts, which range from beautifully woven baskets to shell wind chimes, handmade Caribbean dolls or even rare conch pearl jewelry. And keep in mind that there’s no sales tax or duty up to $800 for U.S. citizens, so Turks and Caicos shops in Grace Bay may be the place to snag that crystal vase, SLR camera or luxury watch you’ve been dreaming of.
