Holiday souvenir


Do you shop for souvenirs when travelling? It's quite fun trawling markets and stalls in a new city or country and even more fun bringing it home and enjoying the happy memories of far off lands.

Do you have a favourite souvenir from a favourite holiday destination? Do you arrive home with a case full of kitsch trinkets or do you search for something practical to bring home?

I like fridge magnets, so wherever I go, I try to buy one and then when they adorn my refrigerator, they also remind me of the fun places I have been to. I don't think I have one particular favourite souvenir though.
I love my Micky Mouse bottle opener, that is made like they had 80 years ago, and it's very well made.I got it at Disneyland in 1992.

Love to buy souvenir's that can be used, not just sit there....Plus it helps some countries, with lower income families...who make a living from it.
Yes, I do. I have a beaded heart that I go in Africa. It is a key chain...and it goes with me everywhere! ;)
Carved handbags, & Onyx Chess set from Mexico, large Fiji storage basket, gold coated Orchid pendant from Singapore, Selangor Pewter set from Malaysia, Buka baskets from PNG, & beautifully carved 'Glory Box' from Hong Kong.

I just loved collecting 'lasting' souvenirs from travelling. They're fond reminders' of a fab life, I once had.
Always seems to be pieces of art painted. Otherwise photos. I blog about my trips, and the article stay on the web. Great memories there.
The souvenirs that are handmade seem to last the longest - we have unique paintings and carvings that remind us of our happy times on holidays and the people we met while away.

I like interesting clothes and jewellery as my souvenirs. My favourite for a long time was a pendant which doubled as a sundial. I wore it so much that it eventually fell apart. Must be time for another journey.
My turtles from Fiji. There's a mummy, daddy and baby turtle, ohh and the painting I bought on our honeymoon as well.

Oh! Vee, how'd you get the turtles through Customs?

Oh, donjo. Sorry, I should've been clear about that. They are not real turtles. See the image I've attached below.

I'm into practical souvenirs eg a sturdy length of plastic to make a table cloth from Japan and cheap Teva sandals from the USA. I have too much stuff to bother with conventional souvenirs.
Actually yes. I have an old music book that my dad once used when he was learning music as a youth.

I've several items. Pearl jewellery made from a shell I personally opened, a jade ring from New Zealand, my mini mouse cocktail hat from Disneyland and my latest acquisition from Amsterdam - a Delft blue minature high heel shoe to add to my shoe, bag and hat collection.
I guess one of my favs would be a t'shirt from Darwin with a croc on it,
