20 Must-Have Unique Singapore Souvenirs

Unlikes what souvenirs connote, souvenirs can be quirky and they now come in many varieties such as jewellery, foods, prints, t-shirts, knick-knacks, tote bags, etc. Seasoned with Singapore flavours and some local humour, these souvenirs are not just souvenirs; they are functional, practical, and pretty to look at. Here are our top 20 cool and unique souvenirs that will remind you of the many sides of Singapore.


1. Streets Canvas Bag, LOVE SG, $26.90

2. Baby Mer Mer the Merlion, The Forest Factory, $22.90

You've not visited Singapore until you have met the Merlion, Singapore's iconic mythical creature. Now available in a huggable and more adorable form, Mer Mer undoubtedly makes a great souvenir for the travellers, and even the locals. 


3. Lapis Sagu Earring Studs, Miniature Asian Chef by Juliana, $20.00

Injecting puns into some of Singaporean's most common surnames, this keychain/magnet from Meykrs will definitely tickle you hard.


6. Turquoise Peranakan Tiles Notebook, LavenderCraftingCorner, $9.90

7. Good Morning Mug, Souvenirs From Singapore, $12.90

Turning the iconic Singapore's favourite tea towel, the Good Morning Tea Towel, into a mug, this is one that will win the oohs and ahhs from your friends.


8. Going To The Market Dialect Book, Sibeynostalgic, $12.00

Throwback to those days when we had our Civics and Moral education (or 好公民) textbooks with vibrant illustrations. This book by Sibeynostalgic immediately reminds us of it but once you turn the cover, you will be greeted by various dialect phrases that you can pick up and practise in various daily conversations with your friends and family.


9. Map Of Singapore, Urbanxmaps, $20.00

For that one friend who loves to collect art pieces all over the world, what is a better souvenir than a sketch of Singapore's map? This minimalistic map of Singapore will be a great addition to your home.

10. The Singapore Rainforest, Wild Drawings, $25.00

A must-have for any nature-lovers, we have a compilation of Singapore's frequently sighted animals and organisms, proving our urban environment to be richer in biodiversity than we have imagined. 


11. The Paddle Pop Pin, This Chepooka, $13.00

Part of our memories growing up, heading to our local convenient store, or mama shop, to get paddle pop ice cream is definitely one of them. This Chepooka's take on this nostalgic memory will make you crave for your dose of paddle pop.


12. Childhood Double Decker Bus Tote, Pigologist, $22.00

Hi there!

We chanced upon your website and like the designs. We are organizing an urgent company event for SG50. It seems a lot to ask..Would it be possible to deliver by end of this week?
