Each Sunday here at Stuck at the Airport is Souvenir Sunday – a day to celebrate the fun, inexpensive and offbeat items you can find at airports.
Today we take a look back at the some of the best airport souvenirs featured this year; a reminder that there’s still time to do your holiday shopping at the airport.
At London’s Heathrow Airport these bus banks were adorable;
But I came home with several of these Beatles tote bags, although no one can convince me that’s Ringo.
At Boston Logan International Airport, I found lovely lobster hats – and a shop clerk willing to get her picture taken as a model:
At the new international terminal at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, I spent way too much time at the store entirely devoted to Hello Kitty:
And at Pittsburgh International Airport, I scooped up a (yummy) chocolate hockey puck:
Corny Cob – a big seller at the Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids – definitely makes the list in this year’s Souvenir Sunday favorites:
But my favorite airport souvenir remains the line of SUX souvenirs from the Sioux Gateway Airport:
Do you shop for souvenirs when you’re stuck at the airport?
If you find something that’s inexpensive (about $10), offbeat and “of” the city or region, please snap a photo and send it along.
If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, you’ll receive a special airport souvenir.

One thought on “Souvenir Sunday: best airport souvenirs of 2010”
A little more expensive, but something I have never seen are unique reading glasses sold by a guy who walks around the Barranquilla (Colombia) airport. There are foldable readers in various strengths that come in a little belt clip on hard case. I bought them 2 years ago, and sure enough, he was there today, Sunday! I needed another pair. Price is about $25 US. He also has some great readers with a unique plastic extension so it stays around your neck. I have never seen either of these in stores. My most practical purchase in an airport!
