I think there is nothing such a best method...both ways have their
advantages and inconvenients.
It can become a complex subject but here are 2 things to help you:
If you are going to manipulate large quantities of items and features you
might be better off with a database.
However, if you have less than a thousand items it might be overkill...
It is also a question whether you are able to install/maintain an SQL
database (or someone else can for you).
I recommend you read a bit on the subject...knowing what each method can do
(or can't) will save you time.
