Leather goods, such as bags, belts, wallets, and purses, can be found for excellent prices here, in addition to brightly colored batik fabric wall hangings and clothes. You may wish to continue the beach theme at home, by purchasing a hammock for your back yard, or a dried puffer fish lamp. Beautiful jewelry created from shells, coconut pieces and ceramic beads are a lovely choice for Barbadian souvenirs, in addition to pottery. You can stop into many workshops to see how the artisans create their crafts, and pick up pieces directly from them. Finally, no vacation is complete without postcards, T-shirts, magnets and key chains to commemorate your experience.
Barbados Things to Do

Naturally, beach activities such as volleyball, shell collecting and sun bathing are tops on the to-do list. Why not visit each of the beaches on the island? You will enjoy different views, vendors and people at each one. Body surfing and boogie boarding are easy beginner sports, but you can also take surfing lessons from pros in Barbados. The Soup Bowl is famous for its ideal surfing conditions, and is also great for wind surfing and jet skiing. Prefer to let someone else do the hard work? Take a cruise around the island, and enjoy the blue waters, sunny skies and green land. Back on land, you can tour a rum factory, and learn how this Caribbean alcohol is made and taste a sample or two. There are also many off road trails for the adventurous to enjoy and see a new perspective on the country.
