No visit to Detroit would be complete without a souvenir or two to remember your stay. Here’s a list of the best Detroit souvenirs to pick up while you’re in Detroit this spring:

Detroit Tigers Hat

A baseball cap with the iconic Old English D logo is the quintessential symbol of Detroit pride. We like this Flexfit cap with raised embroidery and contrasting white inserts. Pick one up at the Detroit Athletic Co., a store that began as a humble peanut stand outside of Tiger Stadium and now offers a huge selection of Detroit sports apparel and gifts. $27.99.

Detroit Longboard

Why walk when you can cruise around town in style this spring on a handmade Detroit Surf Co. longboard with a laser-etched Joe Louis fist logo on the bottom? It’s a rhetorical question. $169. The company also sells surfboards, snowboards and stand-up paddle boards.

Motown Memory

A selection of fashionable t-shirts can be yours at Shop Around, the Motown Museum‘s gift shop. An ultra-soft, vintage-fit crew neck sweatshirt is the perfect weight for cool spring days, $52.

Customized Cornhole

A colorful, handcrafted cornhole set themed after your favorite Detroit sports team will be the hit of your backyard barbeques. This keepsake gift can be handed down for generations. $279, by woodenitbenice.

Send a Message

A simple, stylish black and white tote bag is not only practical; it makes a statement, too – that statement being, “I have people in Detroit.” Yes, you do! Designed by DetroitGT, $12. Sold at select local retailers including Art is in Market at The Mall at Partridge Creek.
