I don't go on holiday, but when my dad does, he sometimes brings back a small trinket for me. When he went to Egypt, he brought back a small pyramid, and a glass of sand shaped like a dessert landscape.
I like to get things that are unique to the area, and that I know I won't find anywhere else. For instance, in Bruges in Belgium, I found a store that sold nothing but nutcrackers. They are exquisitely detailed and have every type of theme you could imagine. My husband and I bought one each, a little chef and a guy on skis with a pipe in his mouth and a tiny furry hat. They are some of my favourite knick knacks ever.
I try to get something small, meaningful and unique. None of the cliched stuff because everyone's probably seen them before.
I used to buy shot glasses, but i dont really buy anything now.
Generally don't have time. Maybe a small piece of china or figure ornament. A postcard size picture is fine too.
I buy keyrings, too easy.
I like to buy souvenirs that are small so I can bring back a fair few.
Something that is a symbol of that country.Nothing cheep-n-nasty!
Jewellery, postcards and interesting clothes. I have also been known to get a few snow-globes, just because I love them!
I only by a souvenir for someone if I see something that I think they would specifically like. If that means only one person gets something, too bad.

The only exception is food- I will sometimes buy local chocolates/dried fruits etc.
I buy either a book of recipes or a painting or sculpture. It depends what's available but I love art and have something from each place I visited. Also fridge magnets just to remind me of where I've been.
Not usually traditional souvenirs, but maybe nice soaps that you can't get here etc. For me, I get shoes or a dress, that makes me think of the place when I wear it (and no one else has it!)
Keyrings, bottle openers, nail clippers, pens. Things they can use.

Mostly key rings or other small items.
Although have bought nice Prints as mementos.
Our family collect key rings. I like bookmarks when I can buy them and pretty fans
As I am a very practical person I usually buy things that you can use and can't get in Australia. I've picked up some good things. I love all sorts of street food but find recipe books in English hard to get though
