Artwork, Cuban coffee, cigars, music and rum are the most common items guests bring back to the U.S. and make great gifts.
As of October 2016, the monetary value limitations on what authorized travelers may bring back to the United States as accompanied baggage has been removed. In other words, authorized American travelers may now bring back as much rum, cigars, artwork, etc. for personal use as they can fit in their luggage. Please see U.S. regulations on import good for non-personal use items.
