If you live in the United States, then you have more than likely heard of Miami. It has long stood as a tourist attraction for families and vacationing students. It is also a city where many people will flock to when they decide to move somewhere warm. Miami is known for many different things. For starters, their nightlife, beaches, and a diverse culture. It is these attractions that frequently draw tourists to the area. While it is known for many different things, Miami is above all else, a constant party! While you celebrate your vacation freedom in Miami, make sure to check out the following souvenirs so you never forget your trip.
1. Humorous Shirts
Yes, while it may seem cheesy or even generic there are some awesome cross-cultural shirts worth gazing at. As you may or may not already know, there is a large Latino population in Miami. Therefore, you are definitely in store for some excellent Latino goods. These T-shirts are not only humorous but 100% unique and unlike other city’s souvenirs. Are you a foodie perhaps? If the answer to this question is yes, then you are in for a treat—pun intended. Places like the Little Havana To Go Marketplace sell Farm Phresh and other comical foodie tees in Espanol. Bring one home and you will be the only one with anything like it. (Most likely…)
2. Florida Keychains
What better way to represent where you have been than with something representative on your keychain? Each time you put those keys into that ignition, with a Miami keychain, you will remember where you have been. The cool thing is, Florida has a whole lot of differences between the individual areas of the state itself. This makes for a fun selection of keychains. For instance, the five in one keychain features five pieces that represent these different areas. It boasts a dolphin, palm tree, flamingo, sunshine, and a little tag that says Miami. It is highly affordable and is quite the conversation piece.
3. Baked Goods
No matter where you go, you will almost certainly be able to find your pick of baked goods. After all, there are bakeries practically everywhere you look. However, every now and then we stumble across those unique, special little spots that just blow our minds. Luckily, for those of you with a sweet tooth, there are many bakeries and chocolate stores in the Miami area that are chocked full of delicious goodies. For example, you will find key lime thimbles with a kiss of powdered sugar surrounding the little treats. They are affordable and simply delectable. Additionally, they make great gifts.
Whether you frequent the beach, or you save it as a special treat—you are going to need proper beach attire. And if you find yourself traveling to Miami and you are unequipped for the beach, I strongly recommend checking out the local spots to fill your needs. Miami is, of course, well-known for their lovely beaches and ocean life. For many, this is an entire way of living and I highly recommend you take part in it while visiting the area. Hit local souvenir shops and grab a stylish new bathing suit, snorkel, sunglasses etc. and you will be set.
5. Wedding Favors
Are you getting married in the near future? Perhaps you simply know some friends who are tying the knot soon. No matter what the situation, if you are in the market for wedding favors then you are in luck. Miami, Florida has a plethora of wedding shops that carry items for wedding planning and organization, as well as gifts for those friends or family that are getting married. These places carry cubic zirconia covered serving trays, customizable photo frames, and unique jewelry. All of which make great gifts for the happy couple or for your bridal party.
6. Home Goods
If you are anything like me, then you probably get tired of looking at the same environment day in and day out. What I mean is, it can sometimes do us good to switch up our home décor and organization of our belongings. It is both good for the soul and your mood. Therefore, when you visit Miami, do yourself a favor and check out all that they have to offer for the home. The stores down here offer quite the selection of home goods like mason storage jars for your kitchen or lovely scenic beach art for the wall.
