Whenever I need the character to handle objects, I like to use contraints most of the time because I can weight the influence and have the character drop the item and then pick it up again pretty easily.

I agree with mef on using constraints As far as IK or FK goes thats all depends on how you like to animate Fk gives more control but is a little slower where as IK is a little faster to pose but means you have to mess around making sure your elbows point in the right direction. Its up to you.
