Wondering what gifts and souvenirs are unique to Salt Lake City perhaps some items that really speak of your Utah experience? Well here are 5 gift ideas that are uniquely Salt Lake City:
The Polygamy Porter is a smooth, medium-bodied ale that pokes fun at Utah’s polygamous past. The beer label is a souvenir in itself showing a scantily clad man surrounded by women touting the slogan: “Why Have Just One.” Pick up a six-pack of the beer at most grocery stores in town or pick up a T-shirt at Squatter’s Pub downtown.
Hatch Family Chocolates
Steve Hatch and his wife Katie Masterson’s have an inherited form of dwarfism and TLC’s The Little Choclatiers follows the couple as they make chocolate in their Salt Lake City shop. Visit the Hatch Family Chocolates during your trip to Salt Lake City not only for the chance to view some now famous faces but to taste some of Utah’s best hand-dipped chocolates and bring some home for the kids.
Recordings of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is one of the oldest, largest, and most beloved choirs in the world. The choir, made up of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, offers free performances Sunday mornings in Temple Square. Find recordings of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in gift shops and book stores around town.
Chances are your trip to Salt Lake City has something to do with the need for skiing some of the finest snow on Earth. The Utah ski resorts offer no shortage of souvenirs from t-shirts, sweatshirts, and caps to hilarious stickers, posters, and pins. Free trail maps make a great gift for the little ones so grab a few extra when you are out on the slopes.
Jack Mormon Coffee
Not your regular coffee shop, the Jack Mormon Coffee is primarily a coffee roaster that roasts beans daily. A pound of freshly roasted beans with an “only in Utah” name makes an excellent gift. A Jack Mormon in someone who was born Mormon but no longer practices the religion. The name Jack Mormon Coffee is especially witty because “good” Mormons don’t drink coffee since the Church forbids it.
