Do not buy souvenirs at the small gift stores you find at the 'landmarks of interest'. Try a big department store. Museum stores also offer a wide range of souvenirs for much better prices than the gift shops. Do not buy postcards at your hotel, as they tend to be more expensive. Go to a stationary store instead. Buy great souvenirs for almost nothing at the local flea markets. Most big towns have at least one.
