Savvy Shopper: Holiday Gift Guide

In the Bag

A holiday gift guide from your favorite island locales

By Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And it’s also the best time of year to purchase a present for your favorite cruiser (or yourself). So as you make that shopping list prior to setting sail on your Caribbean cruise, consider these items — all made in or inspired by the islands we love — that are sure to make much-appreciated gifts (presuming you can bear to give them away).

Perfect Patterns

Artist and photographer Fiona Compton embellishes packable stretch separates (think maxi dresses, kaftans, and jumpsuits) with vibrant hand-painted patterns and botanical motifs inspired by her native St. Lucia.

Cap It Off

Handle a bad hair day, protect yourself from the sun, and show off your true allegiance when you sport these snapback caps from St. Croix–based designer Ashleé Douglas. . . .
