If you’d like to take a little piece of the Silver State home with you, there are a number of options. After all, everyone is happier to hear stories about your trip when they’re gifted with the souvenir of a kitschy keychain, a retro-chic T-shirt or a vintage casino swizzle stick.

If you’re seeking a piece of throwback Vegas, you can find what you’re looking for at the Antique Alley Mall, which consolidates a number of vintage vendors under one roof. You can find ashtrays from the Sahara, matchbooks from the Stardust, and coffee mugs from the Sands. Beyond Sin City, there are toys, artwork, vintage clothing (including an impressive Bakelite purse collection), and more.

2. Bonanza Gift Shop

The sign says “The World’s Largest Gift Shop,” and there’s little reason to doubt the Bonanza Gift Shop’s claim. The building has been a casino and a disco, but it has peddled keychains and T-shirts since the 1980s. Inside, customers can find shot glasses, visors, postcards, notebooks, onesies, back scratchers, and pretty much anything you can slap a “Welcome to Las Vegas” slogan onto. There’s also a range of kitschy gift items and an attached liquor store.

3. Buy Nevada First Gift Shop & Visitors Center

Shop, Store

As you might guess, everything in the Buy Nevada First shop is made in the Silver State. The range of merchandise is as vast as the distance between Las Vegas and Reno: artwork and jewelry, beer and wine, soap and honey, greeting cards and T-shirts. New merchandise is added regularly.

5. Little A’Le’Inn

Bar, Restaurant, American

The Little A’Le’Inn celebrates the Area 51 side of Nevada. A bar, restaurant, and motel, it also has a gift shop full of all manner of items adorned with little green men, from cookie jars to action figures to Zippo lighters. Drop in, have a beer and a burger, and pick up some alien head suspenders to take home.

6. The Mob Museum

The Mob Museum offers an outstanding array of exhibits, interactive displays, and lectures on the history of organized crime around the world. But their gift shop is also not to be overlooked. If you wanted an Al Capone T-shirt or Bugsy Siegel magnet, you could pick one up here, and thanks to the museum’s accent on Prohibition, they have a fine selection of flasks and glassware. There’s also a solid selection of books on Las Vegas and crime history.

7. Neon Museum

There are plenty of stunning sights and signs to see at the Neon Museum, but it’s also the best place in Las Vegas if you’re seeking a souvenir that will please those with little taste for trash or kitsch. There are a number of beautiful books on the city’s architecture, history, and, of course, signs. Coffee mugs and T-shirts have unique designs like the blueprints for the Stardust Casino sign or an adaptation of the Mint marquee, while the alphabetical magnets with neon sign letters will be appreciated by anyone.

8. Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah

Casa De Shenandoah is the estate of Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton. The grounds display cars, thoroughbreds, and a private plane, but the gift shop is also impressive. You’ll find plenty of Wayneabilia—coffee mugs and T-shirts, for example—but the best only-in-Vegas souvenirs may be the vintage deadstock pillboxes and thimbles with Wayne’s face on them.
