If you have ever visited Detroit, you know that it is almost impossible to visit all the attractions in one day, and you certainly need more than several hours to “get” the atmosphere if this very special city.
The Motor City indeed has much to offer – Detroit Institute of Arts, Motown Museum, Belle Isle Park, the Guardian Building, you name it.
While you are jumping around from one attraction to the other, there’s a good chance you might forget to get a souvenir or two for your loved ones.
Ok, I don’t really know if it counts if you buy a Detroit souvenir being out of Detroit,
but in the end… it can be our little secret!
Here I have chosen 12 best Detroit-themed gifts which will look amazing on any wall, table or chest!
Designed in 70s style, these colorful stripes will catch every eye.
This hoodie will keep you and your memories warm at all times!
There’s really no need to introduce PopSockets – giving you a safe and comfortable grip around your phone, this particular one will also tell a lot about your feelings towards the Motor City!
This poster has everything a retro poster needs – a gorgeous woman and a fancy car. Add soothing colors and strangely nostalgically looking cityscape in the background and there you have a perfect decoration for your wall!
Another masterpiece that will spice up your room. A bit more modern and flat-layish then its previous competitor, it will look great in a modern-design interior.
Here comes our third option. It obviously has a much more dynamic “look” and would bring to life any interior that seems a bit too static.
You can almost hear the VROOM VROOM of this red retro monster!
A great addition to any collection of shot glasses – it is also practical and easy to wash.
Well, you probably won’t get away with only one if you are going to use it “accordingly”.
Take six and you’re probably fine 😉
Transportation-related magnet is the way to go if you want to keep a memory of the city that put the world on wheels!
Classic design on this T-Shirt will be to anyone’s liking. You can’t miss with the black and white palette combined with easily recognizable apparel type.
This hoodie cries Detroit even without the sign on it!
Beautifully faded 70s style color stripes over nice heather grey color make a truly stylish garment.
78% to 22% cotton/polyester composition will make anyone warm and dry throughout all the seasons.
Your memories will be incapsulated in this beautiful 3.5 inch tall globe on a genuine wooden base.
Lost Detroit tells the stories behind 12 of the city’s most beautiful, all-but-forgotten landmarks and of the people behind them, from the day they opened to the day they closed. While these buildings might stand as ghosts of the past today, their stories live on within these pages.

These precisely carved handmade coasters will be a nice decoration of every beer or even tea party.
Don’t forget, like any other wooden product, they should be treated with care.
I think it would be a good idea to cover them with mineral oil before first use – so that you could leave them just as new to your grandkids!
I hope some of these souvenirs helped you to keep your Detroit memories safe and maybe will even be a dear gift to your loved ones.
And it does not matter if you’re a Detroiter or a tourist – anyone can fall in love with this very unique city.
