Souvenirs

Are there any coveted items that are exclusive here to bring home for someone?

Just mainly been looking for nice Vancouver hoodies.

You might be able to still find some 2010 Olympics swag around, try Gastown

Gastown, Granville Island, and Robson st. will have what you are looking for. There's also first nations art and jewelry. Bring back some smoked or candied salmon. And you havn't lived until you've tried a Beaver Bum!

No Sam. It's the new Tim Horton's Beaver Bum . A chocolate covered doughnut with sprinkles just around the hole. At the very least the staff will have an amusing time when tourists come in and ask for one.

See, they really did fail me. I was going to suggest some maple syrup.

Just so you know Canadian maple syrup is about half price in the US.

If tourists in Canada are looking to buy maple syrup for personal use I direct them to a variety of grocery stores rather than paying the crazy tourist prices for maple syrup in maple leaf shaped bottles or those tiny plastic ones. I have seen Organic Quebec maple syrup in a one litre bottle ( about 34 U.S. ounces ) on sale for as little as $13 , depending on the grade. Getting it on sale though is the trick as it is usually around $20.

There is a great native art shop in Granville Island where I bought a nice Salish salmon carving during my trip. Other things like souvenir totem poles and clothing can be found at almost all attractions.
