Also known as the sin city, Las Vegas is by far one of the most popular countries in the whole of America. For those who love to gamble and have a thing for casinos; there is no better place in this whole world. So, if you are headed to the US and want to have a wild trip which you will never forget and maybe even try your luck, choosing to head to Vegas seems like a great deal to us.
However, Vegas is more than just gambling and girls. There is so much more which this sin city has to offer and especially when it comes to buying souvenirs and going shopping, the options are endless. So, let us take a look at the best souvenirs from Las Vegas which you absolutely need to buy. Trust us, these souvenirs will make you nostalgic for this peppy place and make you crave to plan a visit to the city all over again.
1. Custom Poker Chips
If you are a die-hard poker fan, this is the souvenir you just cannot miss. When in Vegas, you will find plenty of custom poker chips; the best thing is that they aren’t mighty expensive either. Clay poker chips with custom inlay and even a personalized carrying case would cost you $300. However, choosing a non-customised one could come in as cheap as $20. So, the trade-off is yours to make.
2. Elvis Jumpsuit
Who doesn’t loves to groove to Elvis Presley? We all love him dearly even now. The Vegas man is the common face on too many souvenirs. He is known to be the real hot favorite in Vegas even after his death mainly because of how much he loved this city. So, you will be amazed at how many different types of custom costumes you can find which will echo the Elvis Presley design. Be spoilt for choices and the pick the ones you love best!
However, when you choose custom tailored Elvis Presley jumpsuit, be prepared to be set back by as much as thousand grands!
3. The Vodka from Nevada
Did you really think we could miss out on vodka? Adding a fun fact here is that the production of distilled liquor was banned in Vegas for as long as the summer of 2011. However, drinking is so deep-rooted here that the governor had no choice but to lift the ban.
So, when in Vegas, you should definitely pick up some of the top Nevada vodkas and take it home so that you could still raise a toast to the good times at the sin city and remember your wild adventure.
4. Welcome to Vegas Sign
If you are a great fan of collectibles and signs that act like a perfect memorabilia, we would recommend you to get this. You must have seen this landmark as it greets the tourists at the south end of the strip and was designed by the iconic Betty Willis back in 1959. So, keeping this memento at home might be a great way to show off your Vegas memories.
5. The Vegas Shot Glass
If you are looking for some cheap souvenirs from Las Vegas and yet something which is for keeps, we recommend buying some of the iconic Vegas shot glass. Vegas is all about drinks, gambling and girls and if you are not too willing to carry a bottle of vodka back home, at least take these glasses. This will help you remember Vegas even when you are drinking the local wine in your country. Sounds like a good plan?
6. The Altiplano Watch by Piaget
Now, this is one luxury souvenir you can only buy if you want to splurge money lavishly or if you managed to get lucky on the poker table. This astonishingly beautiful timepiece is featured by Piaget and it comes with an 18 karat white gold and diamond set case. What makes it such a top souvenir in Vegas is that it has an incredible mother of pearl dial which features the four card suits. So, if poker made you really lucky, this is a one-time piece which can help you seal the good luck that helped you make it big. However, it can cost you a whopping $27,500. So, it is a privilege reserved either for the rich or the lucky ones.
7. The Vegas Tattoo
Last but not the least, what better souvenir than getting a tattoo on your body! You can have a sin city themed tattoo on your arms or pick whatever you think suits the Vegas trip you had. Even if you are crammed for time, you can choose a minimalistic tattoo and have it done in 5 minutes or so.
