Tips / Travel

Buying souvenirs for all the special people in your life is oftentimes expected when you’re on a trip. If you travel often, or if you’re in an expensive destination, spending money on all of these gifts can add up. There are plenty of souvenirs available at any destination that will impress your loved ones without breaking the bank.

 

Food

Bringing back food or drinks unique to a region is a great way to give your loved ones a taste — literally — of the destination. Instead of visiting a souvenir shop or waiting until you get to the airport, seek out a grocery store. You’ll find a wider variety of available delicacies, and if you’re traveling abroad, there will be a better selection with packaging in the local language. Candy is a perfect, inexpensive gift to bring back. Wine tends to be priced lower in certain destinations, too. Just keep size requirements in mind when packing your luggage.

 

Local Goods

Support local artisans on your travels. Markets often offer a variety of art made by locals at surprisingly low price points. You’re also likely be offered a discount if you buy multiple items from one vendor.

 

Matchbooks

For a free souvenir, bring home some matchbooks. While you’re out at bars and restaurants, keep an eye out for complimentary branded matchbooks. These one-of-a-kind souvenirs are great conversation starters and will make your loved one think of you when they use them.
