It’s inevitable to become homesick when you’re a student away at school. But whether you’re away in boarding school or university, you can give yourself a comforting reminder of home by proudly displaying your Bermudian heritage. Here’s some tips on great local souvenirs you can pick up before you leave home:

For your room:

Decorating a dorm room or an apartment is an exciting experience every student encounters. So why not add a Bermudian twist!

Bermuda flag

The Phoenix Stores


A Bermuda flag is the essential souvenir every Bermudian student should have. Proudly adhere it to your wall to let everyone know of the beautiful nation you come from — it’s a great conversation starter.

For you:

Proudly represent your country through your attire.

Long sleeve shirts

These are great for sleepwear in the colder months, or even to layer with.

Short sleeve shirts

Short sleeve shirts are wardrobe staples that are perfect for weekends, exercising, and lounging in.

Bermuda sweatpants

Flying Colours


Every student who travels to colder climates for schooling, which is the majority, knows how important it is to have sweatpants, especially when braving chilly temperatures. The Bermuda sweatpants are just as iconic as the Bermuda flag when it comes to student souvenirs.

Bermuda sweatshirts

Much like its sweatpants counterpart, the Bermuda sweatshirt is great for layering over shirts and under jackets when walking to class. It will help keep you warm.


There’s no harm in enjoying the island blends at school, so long as you do it responsibly.

Even if you don’t like rum, keeping a bottle at school will most certainly come in handy for curious friends, or fellow Bermudians who have run dry! And if you buy duty free at the airport, you’ll get it for less than half the regular retail price.
