Holiday mementoes to cherish when you’re back in the office
June 30, 2019
It is so easy to go a bit over the top when we’re on our holidays – we have saved up for them after all, and for many of us we only get away on big holidays once a year. With this in mind, it can be all too easy to splash your cash a bit, and realise when you get home that you have managed to fill your suitcase with tourist tat.
There is nothing wrong with wanting a memento or two to remember your holidays by though – it is just a matter of picking out the right mementoes that you’ll cherish in years to come.
Sure they’re not the most exciting souvenirs, but they are certainly some of the most useful, so why not check out if there are any canvas shopping bags at your holiday destination. Not only will they remind you of your trip, but they make perfect gifts too for loved ones back home. They’re lightweight for your luggage too, which is an added bonus.
It might sound a little odd, but if you are into your fashion and customised items, then check out the local markets when you’re on holiday for some authentic fabric of the region. It can be a great way to commemorate your trip, and you’ll be able to make something totally unique with it, whether that is for the home or for your fashion wardrobe.
This recommendation is perhaps not so unusual, but it can be a really lovely way to shop a wearable memento that’ll remind you of your holidays. Try to look for authentic local craft sellers out-with the tourist traps for totally unique pieces that have been created in the region, and hopefully using local materials too.
Shop with discretion for your holiday mementoes, and choose pieces that you’ll appreciate in the future too.
