If you want an utterly local souvenir from South Bend, it has to come from Notre Dame. Hammes Book Store at Notre Dame has a variety of Fighting Irish apparel and souvenirs, running the gamut from stuffed leprechauns to glasses emblazoned with the university's logo to one-of-a-kind art work. Notre Dame fans will want to take home a poster of the football team's motto — "Play Like a Champion Today" — or "The Shirt," a T-shirt that's design changes annually and debuts during the football team's Spring Game festivities.

Not a football fan? For something edible, stop by the South Bend Chocolate Factory store and pick up some of the yummy confections. The store features a rotating selection of malted milk ball flavors, often with a variety or two dedicated to the current season.
