Providenciales, Turks and Caicos offers a wide variety of gifts and souvenirs. Gift shops can be found at the Salt Mills shopping plaza at Grace Bay near the large hotels and resorts. Tourists can find typical souvenirs or shop local clothing designers as well! Selections of clothing, jewelry, alcohol, and art are available so you can take home a reminder of your wonderful Caribbean vacation.
Local Clothing Designers
Many of the souvenir shops sell mass-produced “I love Turks and Caicos” T-shirts, refrigerator magnets and so on. But there are also a few great local designers with more luxury items for purchase. Many local luxury retailers now offer some of the well-known international fashion brands, but more importantly now showcase selections of home-grown Turks and Caicos designers. You can find the silk scarves and resort wear of Sea Sage, the Caribbean lifestyle clothing of Konk Apparel, and the casual yet refined I Want To Live On An Island shirts. All these designers have a high-end apparel look if you’re searching for a great souvenir or gift.
Art and Jewelry
Anna’s Art Gallery is a great stop for paintings, watercolors, jewelry, sculptures and more!
JSquared Design is a boutique that offers sterling silver and enameled Turks and Caicos jewelry. The Wellington Collection is a store featuring local TCI artists. This local jewelry, gift and art shop is a great stop for light-hearted jewelry purchases with an elegant finish.
Alcohol and Food
While Turks Head Beer would be a great souvenir, packing constraints may make taking home a bottle of the local Bambarra Rum preferable. Bambarra rum cakes are also a great souvenir to take home! Sea salts made from Salt Cay, hot sauces and seasonings, and TCI Coffee Roasters beans are also great ways to bring home the flavors of Turks and Caicos.
Many gift and souvenir shops sell conch shells, conch souvenirs, and other sea shells. The Grace Bay gift shops and art galleries are the best locations for buying smaller and less-common seashells. A permit is required if you wish to export more than 3 conch shells, regardless of if the items were purchased in a shop.
The best souvenir is a professional picture taken on one of our world-famous beaches! Having a photographer take some playful or romantic photos of your family or significant other is a great way to document your unforgettable vacation. Pick up a fun picture frame at the local shop for an even more special memento! The island is home to many great photographers; here are a few:
