Nine Souvenirs That Have Nothing to Do With the Statue of Liberty

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Racked's first annual Travel Week. Through Friday, roughly half of our content will be devoted to everything you need to know about traveling to and from New York City—whether you're entertaining out-of-towners, killing time at the airport, or planning the ultimate staycation.

Much like the Instagram photos, souvenirs are an essential part of any vacation—both for loved ones and for yourself, so that you can remember your trip when thinking about how you've used up all your allotted paid-time off for the rest of the year. Since New York City's shopping scene has so much to offer, resist the lazy temptation to stock up on Statue of Liberty mugs for your mom and friends, and instead, check out some of the city's great boutiques.

Your gifts—no matter who they're for—will be thoughtful and personalized, instead of screaming "I went to New York this one time, and all you got was this lousy beer koozie."
