6 Souvenirs to Take Home This Summer
While we believe memories are the best souvenirs, it’s still exciting to take home something tangible. And with Newport Beach’s variety of quaint boutiques and locally owned shops, you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect souvenir! To help you out, we’ve gathered a few of our summer favorites that’ll remind you of your trip for years to come.
Souvenir: Apolis Newport Beach Market Bag
Alchemy Works at Lido Marina Village is a treasure trove of coastal-inspired home goods. With a collection of dainty gold jewelry and accessories like sandals and hats, you’ll fall head over heels for this charming shop. This summer, take home an Apolis Newport Beach Market Bag, which features a waterproof interior and comes in shades of natural and black.
Souvenir: Customizable Passport Case
Lido Marina Village’s Stoney Clover Lane is a colorful haven chock-full of accessories like fanny packs, tote bags, wallets and more. The best part? Everything can be customized! We love the Passport Case; it’s the perfect souvenir for your summer travels!
Souvenir: Mallorca Beach Towel
Serena & Lily functions as both a home decor shop and design studio. Owners Lily Kanter and Serena Dugan combined their love of the breezy California style with their passion for great design, resulting in a global brand that has mastered the refined, coastal look. Stop by their brick-and-mortar location in Lido Marina Village and pick up one of their ultra-soft Mallorca Beach Towels!
Souvenir: Newport Flag
Hand-stitched by the sea, Slightly Choppy’s retro collection of pendant flags will have you swooning. Founder Scott Richards crafts each flag in the salty, industrial boat sheds of Newport Beach, where he cuts, stitches and paints these one-of-a-kind treasures. Pick up a Newport Flag, which features a washed navy canvas with white hand-screen print, and take home a little slice of Newport Beach.
Souvenir: Bird + Belle Textile Art
Located on Balboa Island’s shop-lined Marine Avenue, Seaside Gallery and Goods is a must-visit during your stay in Newport Beach. The shop sells everything from women’s clothing and home decor to kitchen accessories and artwork. But this summer, we have our eye on Bird + Belle’s Textile Art, like the Tonal Surf piece, which features hand-cut indigo lettering and a salt oak frame.
Souvenir: Daydream Dolphin Hat
With one trip to Daydream, you’ll quickly realize it’s more than a coffee shop. Sure they whip up some stellar espresso drinks, but the best part about this hidden gem is its branded apparel and accessories. Let’s just say the all-new Daydream Dolphin Hat is a total summer vibe!
