Do you struggle with vacation souvenir ideas?
I used to. Back from my early travel days, I couldn’t decide on one vacation souvenir idea and as a result, I have a variety of things to remember my earliest trips by.
I have some magnets. I have t-shirts. Random chachkies. I also have Christmas ornaments.
Over the years, I finally settled on Christmas ornaments. They are now my preferred vacation souvenir idea for several reasons:
- They are also usually small and easy to pack for the trip home.
- They’re fairly easy to find and can usually be found in an airport if necessary.
- Most of the year, they are put away and do not clutter up my home.
- They make putting my Christmas tree up really fun because pulling them out of the boxes is like walking down memory lane of my travels.
Most of the ornaments I have make me smile. Some make me laugh. Others remind me of travel mishaps or things I’d like to forget.
Regardless, they are all a memory and my favorite part of putting up my Christmas tree.
Since my tree is up, I thought I would share many of the ornaments from my travels that I have collected over the years.
