Best Souvenir Shops:
There’s the expected locally made stuff, from jams to chutneys to soup mixes. And then there are the very Rhody products, such as cornmeal for jonnycakes, coffee syrup to make coffee milk (the official state drink), and cans of clam chowder that are (sorry, New Yorkers) cream-based. Nonfood items also abound: local photographers’ prints, books, calendars, soaps, lotions, candles, and jewelry. The Shops at Long Wharf Mall, Newport, 401-846-5006; T.F. Green International Airport, Warwick; 866-466-5974, 401-608-2382;

Best Quirky Gift Shop:
CURATORIUM, Providence
Curatorium is the brainchild of owner Matt Bird, whose motto is “Everything Deserves Curation.” And he doesn’t disappoint, with an inventory lineup that includes a keyring with miniature pliers, locally made frog-mouthed bottle openers, and for the environmentally conscious, baskets made from recycled chopsticks. 197 Wickenden St. 401-453-4080;
