Best Vancouver Souvenirs

Vancouver is a spectacular place to visit and explore. Downtown is lively with shopping of all kinds. Between the malls, the tourist shops, and the funky boutique shopping of Gastown, you are sure to find all the Vancouver souvenirs you could want. Here’s a shortlist of some of the things we found.

Best Vancouver Souvenirs

Best Vancouver Souvenirs - Inukshuk and totem pole figurines | Vancouver is steeped in a rich native american heritage and because of that, you will see stone inukshuk figurines and small totem pole figurines everywhere downtown for sale. #vancouver #bestsouvenirsofvancouver #bestsouvenirs #souvenirs #inukshuk #totempole #nativeamerican #travel #travelblog

Inukshuk

An Inukshuk is traditionally a pile of stones, often in the shape of a man. They were used by Native Americans to mark important locations for navigating, hunting, or showing a sign of peace and friendliness. While visiting Vancouver, you may notice carved figurines and jewelry versions of these in gift shops. I was really drawn to this symbol of communication and friendliness, but I was unable to find one small enough that fit my price range. Most polished stone Inukshuk figurines were carved and rather large so they are very expensive. You may get lucky and see locals carving them along tourist areas and trails, hoping to sell a few to tourists. Ultimately, if you can’t find one, don’t sweat it. You can always get one on etsy. This is my top favorite of all the Vancouver souvenirs we collected.

Totem poles

Another native American inspired souvenir are small carved totem poles. They will likely be found in many of the Standard Canada tourist shops along the waterfront or in gas town.

Sockeye Smoked Salmon

Pretty much anywhere you go, you’ll find sockeye smoked salmon in a decorative wooden box. These make great gifts for family members because they take up very little space and they bring back a taste of Canada. We saw them everywhere downtown. We saw them for sale first at Snowggle gifts along the waterfront and then later in gas town, but you may want to check Granville Island Granville Island market for a better selection.

Best Vancouver Souvenirs - Steamworks brewing beer glass | We loved the food, the drinks, and the lively atmosphere of steamworks brewing so much that we bought a steamworks beer glass to remember our visit to Vancouver and our favorite gastown district. #vancouver #bestsouvenirsofvancouver #bestsouvenirs #souvenirs #steamworksbrewing #beerglass #travel #travelblog

Steamworks Brewery Glass

Steamworks Brew pub sits at the start of Water street, marking the beginning of the historic Gastown district. We were impressed with their food and beers, so we bought ourselves a Steamworks beer glass to add to our collection. Their whimsical steam powered balloon and steampunk style graphics really make for unique and collectible merch. Not only does the Steamworks glass remind us of the brewery, but it also reminds us of Gastown, our favorite district downtown.

Best Vancouver Souvenirs - real canadian maple syrup | A trip to canada isn't complete without maple syrup. We recommend picking up maple syrup at Granville Island food market. If Syrup isn't your thing, they have other maple flavored products like hard candy and maple butter. #vancouver #bestsouvenirsofvancouver #bestsouvenirs #souvenirs #maplesyrup #maplesouvenirs #travel #travelblog

Real Canadian Maple Syrup

You really can’t leave without grabbing a small jug of maple syrup from Granville Island. If syrup isn’t your thing, you can find other maple products like maple butter and maple-flavored candy.

Best Vancouver Souvenirs - The red maple leaf is the iconic symbol of Canada, which makes for a perfect souvenir for family members. You can find it on virtually anything, including small inexpensive trinkets like keychains magnets, or t-shirts. We found a delightful candy store that sold chocolates with sugar maple leaves on them. #vancouver #bestsouvenirsofvancouver #bestsouvenirs #souvenirs #mapleleaf #candada #travel #travelblog

Maple leaf anything

Canada’s iconic symbol is the red maple leaf. You won’t be able to escape the leaf plastered on all kinds of souvenirs ranging from magnets and keychains, clothing, and small trinket boxes. We even found some clever truffles with a little red sugar leaf. These souvenirs are great for family members as well since they are usually inexpensive and clearly represent Canada.

Mounty figurines

A red coat with black pants and tan hat make up the iconic uniform of a Mountie, Canada’s federal police force. You will see mountie figurines, stuffed moose mountie toys, and other merchandise all over downtown Vancouver.
