I love souvenirs... it just reminds me of the places I have been!

Love souvenirs, a few times I have had to box them up and mail them because I collected too many to carry.

In saying that, I guess it depends where a person goes. For example, I cannot see getting much in Kansas, but I always come back with a bag full when in Turkey.

I don't consider buying art to be the same as souvenirs. If I went to Turkey I would come home with a half dozen rugs, but not a single souvenir, if you know what I'm saying.

The only thing I buy on holiday are Christmas ornaments. Each year when I decorate the Christmas tree I remember each place I've visited.

That is actually a great 'scheme' for souvenirs. They have even more meaning that way.

I like to get items that are endemic to the region that I likely can't find anywhere else.

And I like FREE stuff like the drink coasters you get in Belgium and France. If you accumulate a few, you've got a present for someone.
