Any prices listed below were valid with coupons from the Destination Alaska 2010 coupon book, which is free at the pier for most Alaska cruises, or you can buy it from their web site for $5.If you decide to collect the free coins or free charm...

  • *** ALERT ***

    *** ALERT *** Do not buy from the following store! As a consumer advocate I must make you aware of a store in Alaska that charges extremely high prices. An item was purchased for $150.00. The price paid was to include a 15% discount, because it was considered a floor sample. After further research this same item could be purchased new for $53.99....

  • Gift Shop

    It is not your typical gift shop. It is also part of a museum and gallery.You can get Alaskan Jade, red and yellow cedar, argillit, beading authentic Tlingit artwork and learn about the indigenous way of life that has existed for hundreds of years.

  • Stuff to take home!

    The local grocery stores in AK have lots of gifts to take back home and are inexpensive compared to the gifts shops around major attractions. Moose stuff! It's everywhere! Share it with everybody.Fireweed jams, jellies and soap! It all depends on where you shop. Personally, I overspend but sweatshirts and anything that is made of whale bone is...

  • Everything jade!

    The Jade Factory offers a wide variety of styles of jade jewelry, figurines, etc. You can actually watch the saw cutting a huge chunk of jade. There are also carvings by local artisians that are on display but are not for sale. Besides jade, there is jewelry made of other precious and semi-precious stones, gold nugget jewelry. etc. Be sure to look...

  • Tax Free

    Alaska has no general sales tax. The price is the price. There is a tourist tax on hotels and such, but general shopping is tax free. Everything


    The prospector is simply a great shop and maybe the only one in Valdez with a with selection and reliable prices. A solid performer, the store is the retail leader in Valdez and is a destination for both residents and visitors alike. The Prospector provides quality clothing and gear for visitors who wish to enjoy the changeable Alaskan weather....

  • Gift shop in Valdez

    The gift shop belongs to the RV Park itself. I have no special recommendations or ideas what could be so special in this shop. It's general gift shop with a wide selection (the shop is bigger than it seems from outside). I got everything that i wanted to and the lady was also very kind and helpful. She noticed I was the first Hungarian in her shop...

  • Gift shop with a view

    What makes it so special? The view hehe! I generally avoid gift shops and crowded places like that but actually it was just a small wooden house. There's nothing special inside beside postcards, small gifts and snack but the view from this place was just spectacular! Located on the Glenn highway. If you are visiting the Matanuska Glacier you cannot...

  • It could be the perfect souvenir

    We came across this when we went out to Whitehorse, Yukon. It’s an entire town for sale right off the Alaska Highway. If we had a ton of extra money, we’d buy it and give it to the residents or help make their lives easier. Whatever they want to do with it, they should get the final word. It’s their land. But the question raised with this purchase...

  • Souvenirs

    Without having a special shop or even a particular town where you should buy specific items, I would recommend a few things to shop for in Alaska: SALMON (fresh or canned -- smoked is my favorite!), plush animals (they are lovely and unique because they represent the Alaskan wildlife: seals, whales, huskies, moose, puffin birds), local crafts...

  • Native Arts and Crafts

    Alaska Native Art is very beautiful and that spectacular state really has things to be memorized. Many visitors want to buy genuine Alaskan Native Arts when visiting on State and it has become bigger business lately. That has also brought some unfair business around. *Genuine* crafts has been made in China or Hong Kong and real Native Artist has...

  • Whale Bay Trading Co

    It has been so long since I visited this place I can't remember what I bought or how much I spent... probably just a couple of postcards. It sold all the usual gift shop items - toys, postcards, t-shirts, that kind of thing. average - to a bit more.

  • For your camping, hiking trip.

    Everything you may need when camping, hiking ect.If REI don't have it you don't need it ! Boots, mosquito repellent, food.Buy any thing which kills mosquitos.Any thing that will ease your iritating bites.TIGER BALM if you can get it helps ! $-$$$$

  • An invaluable resource

    If you want souveniers of the Alaska Railroad, buy them at the Anchorage Depot. The other depots do not have gift shops! The "Ride Guide" is a must!! It is $5 well spent, as it will make your ride so much more enjoyable. Filled with great information, detailed maps, and historic photos, you will thank me for this tip. $5

There are things I've got: Alaskan Herbal Lip Balm, the Natural Symphony of Alaska (audio with relaxation music and sounds of Alaska wildlife), aromatic candles, photo frames, leather address books and purses, souvenirs from jade (Alaska state dark green gem - you can see walrus from...
