I need a gift idea other than rum! I'm visiting some family members, and I'm taking rum for the adults, but for my preteen to teenaged cousins, I'm stuck. There are three of them, and I just want to give them each something small that's unique to the VI... or just unique to the Caribbean... or I'd even settle for something you can't get in Montana... but I want to do something a little less lame than t-shirts, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated! (Oh, and it can't be perishable, because I'm not actually going to see them until I've been in the states for 3 weeks.)

Look for the guy on the boardwalk that sells coconuts made into bird feeders.

I am not sure you can take the coconut art through the Customs at the airport.

What about a hook bracelet for the female and a steel pan or Express Band CD? Those little souvenir steel pans are cute. The DVD Learning to Sea is also interesting. At the NPS Store in Christensted they have nice sea turtle posters which are nice when they're lamented. Toe rings are also cute especially if you can afford gold. There's also a jeweled whose got some cute sterling sea turtle charms. Cove something or other. Bush tea is also good. My friends like the balsam that comes boxed from The Bush Tea Lady.

How about necklaces or anklets from Sam the glass man? He makes beautiful stuff.
I do like the idea that ms411 had about the learning to Sea DVD, it's great.
The Whim has some unique items. Maybe a wooden pen made from local wood.
