Attic Salt and The Raider Image at Fashion Show Mall
Of course there are a plethora of boutiques and big box stores to shop at Fashion Show Mall, but for unique and sure-to-love Secret Santa gifts, we recommend Attic Salt and The Raider Image. Both are located on the second level of the mall, and are practically next door to one another. At Attic Salt, you’ll find adorable accessories that range from canine-shaped enamel pins for dog moms, Mickey and Minnie Mouse backpacks for the Disney lover, and whimsical and funny headgear. Two stores over at The Raider Image, official team gear stuff the walls and racks of this shop. If your Secret Santa gift recipient is a member of Raider Nation, you can’t go wrong purchasing your present here.
Sky Shop at The LINQ
Placed at the exit of the High Roller, Sky Shop is more than your typical gift shop. Featuring official Vegas Golden Knights merchandise, as well as Las Vegas souvenirs that range from T-shirts to hats, the boutique also offers comical and humorous apparel with quotes that sum up the normal Vegas vacation, and leave the wearer looking like a walking meme.
Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Downtown Las Vegas
It may seem odd to recommend this famous Pawn Stars shop for Secret Santa shopping, given that it would be near impossible to find anything for less than $25 inside, as it is famous for its highly-coveted collectibles. However, we do recommend perusing the store’s self-branded souvenirs. Who wouldn’t enjoy a pair of “I heart Chumlee” socks ,or a Gold & Silver Pawn logo beanie? Anyone who has ever watched the show is sure to be a fan.
Eden in Love at Town Square Las Vegas
Aloha! Eden in Love successfully combines its tropical Hawaiian roots with the pizazz of Las Vegas. Look for exclusive items made specifically for the Vegas location, and some made by local Las Vegans.
