Most people bring home typical souvenir items when they travel, such as magnets, jewelry, shotglasses, etc. At least in my house, these items will end up missing or placed somewhere to collect dust. Here are a few different souvenir ideas that are inexpensive - the more unusual the destination, the more interesting your souvenirs become!
Labels. Take labels from wine, beer, soda or water bottles you drank while on your trip. Soak them off and let dry, then place in the pages of a book or anything that will keep them flat. Also, cut the front panel off a box of tea or chocolate or a collection of chocolate candy wrappers. These all make a fun and colorful display in either frames or a scrap book!
