What do you often buy as souvenirs?

August 27, 2009 2:03am CST
I love traveling and one thing I wouldn't missed is buying a lot of souvenirs for my family and friends. But one thing that I often bought for myself are those miniature objects that symbolized the place that I'd visit. How about you, when you travel what kind of souvenirs do you often buy? Have a great day!

Usually I will buy the local snacks and handicrafts as the souvenirs. So at least my family and friends can learn something from the place that I had traveled. And these souvenirs are much more meaningful and it will not be so expensive. I love China

Oh, that's also nice for souvenirs. Yeah, I also like handicrafts, that's what I also give to some of my friends and family. I often choose those small ones, 'cause I don't like bringing lot of stuff when I got home. I'm not really into food,'cause I'm a bit choosy, it's just a waste of money, but sometimes I do bought just little. Thanks for sharing with us Have a great day!

Yes, I like to buy souvennirs too when I travel and visit new places. I have a collection of souvenirs at home now from many countries around the world I have visited. My favorite souvenirs are handicrafts that I can place the desk. I also like to buy CDs of classical music of different nationalities and cultures. I have a big collection of the CDs.

I also like to travel. Looking at the souvenir items from the countries we visited is reminiscent of the places that we had been to. Usually I collect postcards of the countries I visited, pictures of the famous and tourist places the country is known for. I also buy some small souvenir items that symbolize the place, like the miniature twin towers of KL in Malaysia, the sea lion in Singapore, miniature niagara falls in glass from Canada and other items like spoon and pens with the name of the country. I also buy some t-shirts and key chains for give away to family and friends. I also collect currency bills from each country I went.

When I travel I buy costume dolls for my collection of them from around the world. I collect foreign currency, notes and coins. My best ones are a three dollar note and a triangular coin from the Cook Islands. I also purchase picture postcards from the destinations that I visit. For my mum I often buy a t-shirt and for my sister I often buy fridge magnets.

Depending on my budget at that time, it usually be key chains. I can buy tons of them. Apart from that, local food or fruit is good too. I am sure the ones at home are willing to try it like I did during the visit (or because I force them to try) Sometimes I like to buy t-shirts or fridge magnets with the pictures or words describing the place.
