Bonanza Gifts is touted as the world's largest gift shop. The shop opened in 1980 and is one of the historical locations of Vegas. The center is 40,000 square feet with more than just souvenirs. In fact the shop states that they carry the unusual, bizarre, and weird. The store has kitsch to classy items from fuzzy dice, dice clocks, to Rat Pack Photos. T-shirts are perhaps the largest section of the shop with a full shop dedicated to the souvenirs. The shop is actually on the Strip, though it is on the outskirts near the Sahara Casino and Hotel. They open every day at 8am to Midnight seven days a week. They are closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
A bit more on the history of the shop could be a bit of fanciful information. It is said a conquistador walking through the desert on his way to California was looking for water digging in the red dirt. He came upon some sort of object, but was unsure of what it was. So he scratched his name in it, re- buried it, and headed to California. Then years later Bonanza was resurfacing their parking lot and came across the artifact. They and the conquistador did not know what it is. The object can be seen at the gift shop.
At Bonanza the World's Largest Gift Shop tourists can take home books, games, keychains, magnets, pillows, tee shirts, toys, and much more. The gift shop will have the less than typical books. They can offer some best sellers tourists might want for the plane ride home, but mostly they offer information about Vegas. For example LV Babylon a True Tales Book, LV Photo Tour and Fabulous Brothel Guide are just some of the books at Bonanza.
Gaming includes take home souvenirs you may want to use for your next poker or table game. Clay poker chips, mechanical card shuffler, poker dice, dealer's visor, real casino cards, and even the LV monopoly game can be found at Bonanza.
Home and lounge categories offer even more. Tourists can bring home a snow globe, dice bracelet, dice clock, World's Largest Coin, Vegas Signage, or even a Las Vegas Spoon. Key chains and magnets give a small souvenir to take home. These inexpensive items can have Las Vegas signs, money, or other Las Vegas symbols.
In their pillows section you can find dice pillows, Las Vegas signs, or chips as the designs. They are throw pillows with flare. The tee shirt and hats section is the most popular area of Bonanza. Shirts can be embroidered, painted, or screened for the design. Las Vegas will be on all the shirts. The shirts can be simple or complex with their designs. Some of the shirts have funny sayings about Vegas or the typical coined phrase "What Stays in Vegas.''
Once customers are done shopping at the Largest Gift Shop of the World they can head back to the Strip or over to the Sahara for a roller coaster ride.
