When you travel, what type of souvenir do you most often buy?

Buying souvenirs is half the fun of traveling, isn’t it? Well, okay, maybe not half the fun… but who doesn’t love a good gift shop? We never turn down gift shops!

When you buy souvenirs, what do you most often buy? A magnet for your fridge? A new T-shirt? A local piece of art or a local food specialty? A tea towel for your kitchen? Something else?

If you select “other” from the poll options below, please leave a comment and tell us what you usually buy.

Oh, and in this poll, you can select up to TWO answers.

We have started collecting the hiking stick medallions from National Parks in addition to a shirt if they have a neat one.

Other than t-shirts, I collect logo’d golf balls from all the courses I play. Doesn’t take up too much space in my display cases when I get back home, so the wife is happy about that!

I collect shot glasses. Getting one from each state and of some site(s) that is significant.

When I am at National Parks/Monuments, etc, I do the Jr Ranger booklet and get my earned badge or patch! I have a vest with them but with be getting a piece of fabric to hang them on my wall instead, as the vest is getting very heavy! I also, buy a pin of the area/park/state.

I purchase a coffee cup so each morning when I am home I remember a special place.

If we get anything it has to be really small, just a tiny reminder of where we went or what we did while there. T-shirts and mugs are absolutely forbidden!
Digital photos are preferred above all else since they store easily and all display on one screen. We are full-time in a motorhome already overflowing with stuff.

I occasionally buy pins depending on how large they are and how they can be worn on a ball cap. However my favorite, though not always found, are bookmarkers. I use them in books obviously but also to mark my place in office files. And they make great stocking stuffers for my granddaughters who love to read!

While I really don’t buy many souvenirs, if I visit a National or State Park, I like to get a small sticker to put on the trailer bumper.

We buy koozies. They take up little space and after we settle down somewhere in the future, I plan to make Christmas ornaments out of them.

I buy post cards to show where we’ve been. I also buy extra to send to family and friends!
