If you’re looking for a way to bring home the utter deliciousness of U.S. Virgin Islands’ flavors, look no further than Trinidad Charlie’s hot sauce. Made right at his St. John home from ingredients he grows on his own land, Trinidad Charlie’s is a staple among the U.S. Virgin Islands’ restaurants and locals’ pantries. Varieties like pumpkin and key lime are the perfect complement to many dishes, so pick up a few different bottles to bring that vacation vibe back to your home.
 
In truth, though, it’s hard to choose just one thing to bring home from the U.S. Virgin Islands, because St. Thomas has the fine distinction of being perhaps the best duty-free port in the world. Whether it’s brand-name clothing, jewelry, electronics or liquor, you’ll find the best bargains here, and with a duty-free allowance of $1,600 per person, you’re free to spend, spend, spend. The best duty-free shops can be found in the island’s historic capital of Charlotte Amalie and at the Havensight Cruise Ship Dock. Happy shopping!
