I always grab souvenirs when I travel to remember my journey. It doesn’t matter if I was at an exotic destination or at a local city. I guess it’s my way of recalling what made the trip special. The souvenirs doesn’t have to be extravagant or cost a fortune. It just need to be special and allow you to reminisce about the places and the things you did there, the people you met and the way the whole trip made you feel. Of course it is easier to snap digital pictures and videos instead but souvenirs has a different touch to the trip all together. Here are some souvenir ideas so you can buy something to remember your next trip.
If you like to send a bit of your trip back home, you can stick to the good old souvenir idea – post cards of the vacation destination. They are usually so cheap but shows amazing local attractions. While at that, why not grab some for yourself as well to take home as souvenirs?
Another true type of souvenirs are items that you can display such as shot glasses, snow globes, bumper stickers, key chains, fans, mugs, plates, vases and pencils. These souvenir items are the most logical choices for tourists when it comes to souvenirs. Best of all, so many people end up collecting such items from everywhere they travel.
One of my favorite souvenir ideas is a bottle of local wine or local liquor from the country I visit. When I visited Frankfurt in Germany, I had the chance to visit a vineyard and taste their amazing wines. I picked couple bottles of wine while there and brought it back home. Of course the bottles are empty now but I kept the bottle as a souvenir of my trip. Likewise if I go to Mexico, I would bring back 100% agave Tequila.
I must admit that I have a sweet tooth. And I love to bring back local sweet delights as souvenirs. You can find them in foreign grocery stores like Tesco or Monoprix. There are lots of sweets that are not available in your own country so grab some to take back home and enjoy.
Whatever you chose as a souvenir to bring back home, just remember that the souvenirs act as a wonderful reminder of your journey in that special corner of the world. So be sure you remember to purchase souvenirs that will treasure your trip for years to come. What type of souvenirs do you bring back from your trips?
