Do you collect items for yourself and your kids/pets/significant others when you travel? We have a few traditions we started a few years ago and I love the fact that when we venture to a new destination, Jeff and I take time to find something special to bring home!
For our adventures, I started collecting travel books years ago…like coffee table books filled with pictures and information about a particular city/state/country, and our collection has grown quickly! It’s something we can keep, display in our home, and I love that it’s not a normal “souvenir”. My favorite part is that I have books written in different languages from our (and others’) international travels so it’s more authentic, too. Here are a few of my favorites:
In addition, our newest souvenir item to collect is fun Christmas ornaments for a “travel tree” we have for the girls. It won’t be one of those glamorous trees by any means, but we hope to collect meaningful and sentimental treasures to add to this tree to display in our home. We haven’t had this travel tradition very long, so it’s definitely a work in progress, but I hope this is something both Caroline and Carson will treasure and something we can keep forever to remember all of our adventures.
What fun travel souvenirs do you collect?
