Gambling Related Gifts & Souvenirs from Las Vegas
A huge reason that many people visit Las Vegas is to enjoy some quality time with a one-armed bandit (Find out where you can still play coin-operated slots in Las Vegas in our article here)
There are countless casinos and top of the line hotels in the area that you can visit to enjoy some slots, card games, and more. This is a big reason that many choose to bring home a gaming-related souvenir from Sin City. Here are a few great gambling themed souvenirs:
1 – Custom Poker Chips
Bringing home chips from your favorite casino can be a great way to get a souvenir you love. However, these are worth money, and you usually want to cash them in at the end of the night, so you don’t lose out.
Do casino chips ever expire? Find out in our article here.
However, you can have custom poker chips made while in Las Vegas that are a great way to commemorate your trip, plus they also make a great gift.
The Spinettis Home Gaming Supplies company sells custom poker chips that you can purchase for a range of prices. These come in a variety of styles and start at as low as $39 for a standard 300 chip set with a case and cards.
However, you can upgrade your set with custom inlays, images, logos, personalized carrying cases, playing cards, and more by simply placing a custom order. Imagine having poker night with the guys and busting out your own custom set of cards and chips from Vegas! Cool right?
2 – Collectible “Golden Nugget” Casino Chips and Dice
Also available at Spinettis Home Gaming Supplies (see above), you can find memorabilia from one of Las Vegas’ first casinos. The Golden Nugget Casino was one of the very first casinos opened in Las Vegas, and finding a chip or a set of dice from this casino can be very difficult.
The shop offers collectible chips and dice from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s ranging in price based on their condition. You can also find modern-day dice sold here for just a few dollars, great for any gambling aficionado and an extremely inexpensive little gift.
3 – $10 Silver Strike
Since Nevada is known as the Silver State, casinos began issuing Silver Strikes starting around 1992. These silver coins range in price from only a couple of dollars to $300, but the most commonly found Silver Strike was the $10 coin. These were popular amongst hotels because they would feature their logos, shows, restaurants, events, and more.
You will find that some casinos like The Palms, Sam’s Town, and the Four Queens, still mint commemorative tokens for special events and occasions.
Of course, you can still find vintage or antique pieces at several shops that are collectibles from the past. A great place to find a collectible Silver Strike coin is at Lost Vegas Antiques on the Strip.
4 – A Very Dice Gift
As you may guess, in a city known for gambling, you will find a variety of dice related souvenirs. Dice are an extremely popular theme in Vegas and one you will find at many shops. While many casinos offer branded dice, you can also find everyday items made using dice, making them more unique.
You can find a variety of vintage dice, fuzzy dice sets, or even cute dice clocks. The opportunities are endless, and these souvenirs usually make a great, yet inexpensive gift that many would love.
A great place to find these dice related souvenirs, as well as a ton of other items, is a souvenir shop, such as Bonanza. Found on the north end of the Strip, Bonanza is billed as the World’s Largest Gift Shop and is a Las Vegas tourist attraction in its own right.
5 – World Series of Poker (WSOP) Souvenirs
If you have someone in your life who loves gambling, they’ve probably heard of the World Series of Poker (aka WSOP) as this is considered the Main Event in the world of professional poker. While this competition is not for beginners and costs thousands just to enter, many would love a souvenir from the event as a keepsake. This can be especially true if you have a favorite player whom you follow.
A great place to find authentic memorabilia and products from the WSOP is at the Gambler’s General Store. They sell decks of cards that were used in actual WSOP events. These sets come in decorative boxes and are available for purchase for around $30. The store itself has a great collection of other gambling-related souvenirs as well.
6 – The Chicken Ranch Token from Pahrump, Nevada
Ok, so maybe this one is not as much gambling-related, but it definitely is unique to Las Vegas and something you will not find just everywhere. You may have heard that the state of Nevada is the only state in the U.S. with legalized brothels. The Chicken Ranch is one of these establishments, and in addition to the services they provide, they also have custom poker chips and other memorabilia that will make for a unique souvenir.
If you prefer, you can visit these establishments just to have a drink or look around without availing yourself of their services. One thing to pick up while you are there, however, is the unique collectible tokens that many of these businesses have. The Chicken Ranch has tokens for only $1.99 that you can get at the brothel itself or if you’re too shy to visit you can pick one up here on amazon.
Delicious Edible Las Vegas Gifts
When you’re visiting the city that never sleeps, you’ll quickly realize that there is an endless array of food to choose from. In fact, some of the most delicious food available anywhere is found in Las Vegas and believe it or not you may be able to bring some of these delectables home with you!
These edible souvenirs are the gift that keeps on giving (at least until you eat it all) and are a great present to bring home for those on your shopping list. Here are some of the best choices:

The Bellagio Patisserie is the key place to visit for top-of-the-line chocolates. In fact, when entering the shop, you will find a 27-foot high chocolate fountain with over 2,000 pounds of dark, milk, and white chocolate pouring down from the ceiling. The Patisserie is known for its many exotic chocolate creations, but you can also find cakes, crepes, cookies, ice cream, and much more.
You can bring home a basket of the best samplings of patisserie. They allow you to create your own basket of options or you can choose from their list of available gift baskets.

11 – Mothership Coffee Roasters
Amongst the abundance of strip malls in Las Vegas, you will find the amazing Mothership Coffee Roasters.

You can’t go anywhere in Vegas without seeing the team logo on everything from jerseys to bumper stickers. You can easily find Golden Knights gear all over Vegas and it makes a great gift for any fan of the hockey team. But if you’re Golden Knights fan AND a wine lover, you’re in luck!
A delicious wine and a great keepsake for Golden Knights fans is the Vegas Golden Knights wine.

Handmade Souvenirs and Art Pieces
If you want to find something more heartfelt, there are several handmade souvenir options that you can choose from. Many cultural pieces are designed and sold in Las Vegas as well as unique offerings that you will not find anywhere else. If you want a true Las Vegas souvenir that will remind you of your trip, here are some great options:
Las Vegas was originally home to many Navajo tribes and over 50,000 tribe members currently live in the Southern part of Nevada.
These Native American tribes design some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces you can find anywhere in the American southwest. Many of these pieces feature beautiful turquoise stone inlays.
Visit the Boulder City Trading Post in Boulder City for many beautiful Navajo pieces, like their gorgeous turquoise bracelets. These pieces are made by a local artist using sterling silver found in Nevada and Boulder Turquoise inlays (turquoise with a brown streak). They have a large selection of turquoise jewelry to choose from ranging in prices depending on your budget.
16 – Sin City Gallery Las Vegas
This is a beautiful art gallery that you can visit while in Las Vegas, which features different paintings, photographs, sculptures, and multi-media pieces each month. The artists at Sin City Gallery are hand-picked for the venue and each months show is different and truly one of a kind.
If you do plan to visit the gallery, you should note that these pieces are erotic themed and are not suitable for kids or those who do not appreciate this style of art.
If you fall in love with a piece, while you’re visiting, that you’d like to take home, great! Most of the art is for sale. Of course, depending on the artist and size of the piece, your costs will vary. However, these pieces are special as they cannot be found anywhere else and are great for someone who collects works of art.

If you want something that is inexpensive, yet distinctive to the city, how about a bakery inspired soap. Many of the soaps are designed to look like a bakery treat.

24 – Jawbone Business Card Holder
This is perhaps the #1 weirdest souvenir on my list and probably only works for a certain type of person. The Jawbone business card holder is a quirky and unique souvenir that you can take home with you from your stay in Las Vegas.
While this is one of the more peculiar items on the list, these business card holders are extremely popular (they’ve sold thousands of these).
The most interesting thing about these business card holders is that they are sold by the Clark County Coroner’s Office and were designed after the CSI television show became such a success.
The Clark County Coroners office has several items in their gift shop. You’ll find hats, badges, shirts, scrubs, license plates and mugs. The proceeds from the sales go to benefit the Employee Wellness Program at the coroner’s office. With some of the things they must see, it sounds like a good cause!
