First of all, I was unsure if this question should be used on this category or not.
I came across this sentence:
富士山のお土産に友達が絵葉書をくれました

What does this means? I understood the "A friend gave me a postcard" part, but I don't get the bold part.
What does that means?

Detailed answer please,
Thank you

In this case, に means "as", indicating the purpose of the item. "He gave the postcard as a souvenir".
