souvenir – NOUN – a thing that is kept as a reminder of a person, place, or event.
3. STICKERS: once again, light weight and take up no room!
However…once they are stuck! They are stuck forever…
4. POSTCARDS: Just like stickers…but more options!
They don’t take up any room and have all the locations details on them too…keep scrolling to the end of this one to see them in action in our Travel Journals…
5. KEYRINGS: most towns have them, this makes them easy to collect…
…however, they do become quite weighty!
6. MAGNETS: Popular and compact!
Magnets & keyrings are our back ups – if there are no hat pins, there are sure to be keyrings and magnets! They look fabulous on the drinks fridge in the garage!
7. STUBBY COOLERS: Another light weight option!
I bet we all have a little collection of these around the house or in the caravan. They are light weight and can squash anywhere – they are also machine washable!
8. SPOONS: Old school, but beautiful!
Many moons ago, little spoons were the ultimate collection item, they make a lovely display – however, they are not as readily available at tourist spots anymore…
9. SHOT GLASSES: Breakable!
We met a guy who was collecting these on his BIG LAP and he used up all his socks carefully wrapping them in his van!
10. SAND JARS: New idea!
Many families are collecting little Sand Jars..this might not be viable for ALL of your destinations, but they make lovely keepsakes!
WHAT DO YOU COLLECT?
Do you have photos of your collections – we would LOVE to add them to this article…
Speaking of keepsakes – our Travel Journal is just that! A keepsake that will keep all your cherished memories to be enjoyed for years and years to come…
