In Sacramento, tourism continues to grow each year. For the city’s nearly half a million residents, gift and souvenir shops are a paramount component, contributing to these precious outings and travels. Different places offer different goodies and take-home tokens, and these are the best places in Sacramento to find them.

Garden of Enchantment

From floor to ceiling, Garden of Enchantment carries souvenirs and other eclectic keepsakes. Art deco and fantasy statues, candles, handmade jewelry, and music pack the shelves. This gift shop concentrates on trinkets and goods of the metaphysical nature—tarot cards and incense are available to curious buyers. An array of tye-dye clothing and plenty of other apparel hang along the walls, waiting to be bought and worn out of Garden of Enchantment.

McGee’s Old Time Photos

Play dress up

A photography session at McGee’s Old Time Photos captures the moments of the day and turns them into memories. At this Old Town Sacramento photography studio, customers get to dress up in Gold Rush era garb and pose as if it was 1900. Assortments of corsets and petticoats are up for grabs to photograph in, as are traditional cowboy-wear and other Wild West getups. One of the skilled photographers walks clients through the whole process of how to pose and express themselves authentic to the era. Copies of the photos make for excellent souvenirs that look as if they’ve made it through over 100 years of history.


Costumes for every occasion at Evangeline’s

Evangeline’s opened in Old Town Sacramento 44 years ago in 1976, as an antique store. Over four decades later, Evangeline’s is over 4,800 square-feet of offbeat collectibles, costumes for every special occasion imaginable, books, purses, gag gifts—the list goes on. Unique film memorabilia is part of the extensive inventory; among them are classic Betty Boop keepsakes and curio from the holiday classic Christmas Story. With three stories playfully overflowing with goods, Evangeline’s could be the only necessary stop for all souvenir needs.

Mixed Bag

A bit of everything

As the name of this souvenir mecca suggests, Mixed Bag sells a little bit of everything. From journals and keychains to flags and rideable unicorn sticks, this small gift shop overflows with fun mementos that make perfect tokens for the occasion. Grabbing a wooden basket to fill with Mixed Bag trinkets and goodies has been the joy of locals and tourists for over 35 years. The old saying “there’s something for everyone” is as close to literal at the Mixed Bag shop.

Old Sac Shirts and Gifts

Families in search of wearable souvenirs typically end up at Old Sac Shirts and Gifts, where infants, children, teens, and adults enjoy the selection of Old Sacramento-tribute apparel. Designs are often available starting from onesies for babies up to 6XL t-shirts so everyone in the family can wear matching Sacramento pride. Old Sac Shirts and Gifts sells wearable souvenirs to commemorate whatever trip or outing is taking place. If an ode to Sacramento is needed, this souvenir palace most likely carries something to reflect the occasion.

Sacramento Sports and Souvenirs

Pleasing fans of all sports

An impressive collection of sports memorabilia and curios await at Sacramento Sports and Souvenirs. The inventory isn’t only specific to Sacramento-exclusive teams either. This souvenir shop is here to please all fans with licensed baseball, basketball, hockey, Nascar, football, and other American sports league merchandise. The inventory ranges from shot glasses, clothing, jewelry, hats, even kitchenware. For the not so zealous sports fans out there, Sacramento Sports and Souvenirs also offer exceptional miscellaneous keepsakes like pendant jewelry and toys.
