I have a habit of getting a Souvenir from whatever places i visit. Like i got a fridge magnet (most popular souvenir in my opinion) from Las Vegas and Grand Canyon when i visited over the holidays.
Similarly i want to get some Dallas / Texas Souvenir, fridge magnet for sure, apart from that anything else you people can suggest ???
Also tell me where can i go and buy those ? I would want to have a look and then buy.
Please suggest me a good shop / store in Dallas (nearer to Plano preferred) where i can check out the souvenirs and get them.

Downtown Plano has several small shops that might provide you with souvenirs, or, at least, nice gifts. I don't know if the Interurban Railway Museum has a gift shop or not, but it has some interesting history.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas is an obvious place, but, of course, only deals with the JFK assassination.

I might suggest that a nice photo collection would be a great souvenir. Moderator cut: no ads allowed

the malls might have store that sells TX memorabilia--there is one in NE mall that sells magnets, shirts, food stuff that are tied to being TX products--like chocolate shaped armadillos...
the airport has stuff like that too
the art museums have gift shops and probably something that is local--tied to Dallas history/art scene

I would think that any average mall would have gift/souvenir shops.

Oh, add to my last the "Little Red Museum" in Downtown Dallas.

You work near downtown Mckinney if I recall correctly....and if so, I am sure a number of the shops on the Square have Texas/Dallas-themed trinkets.
