I think that prices of souvenirs in Malaysia are pretty reasonable because you get the real stuff at good prices than if you compare to other countries e.g. cheap souvenirs say in Australia are usually made in China.
In Miri, you can get local handicraft like beads, carvings or woven cloth & bags for a few dollars and you can find all this at the local cultural center in the middle of Miri old town. In the center, each shop is divided in booths and manned by locals, mostly indigenious tribal women who are friendly and can speak some English
What to buy: Colourful glass beads, wooden carvings and tribal woven cloth or the Pua make great souvenirs
What to pay: You can get glass beads bracelet for under US$5. The most you pay is US$50 for a glass bead bag
