For some, searching for and purchasing the perfect holiday memento can be an important part of the holiday experience. The UK population spends a staggering annual total of £1.2 billion abroad... just on purchasing holiday souvenirs! The British holidaymaker spends an average of £26 on souvenir items including sticks of rock, stuffed animals and fridge magnets. Are you one of them?
The secret to choosing the perfect souvenir is to find something that is meaningful to you and represents where you've been. Something that you will cherish for years to come and when looked at, will spark fond nostalgia of your travels.
However, if you're not one for purchasing souvenirs for friends and family, a great alternative is simply taking lots of photographs, capturing your holiday on film and inviting them over to show them. Why not make an occasion out of it? Try cooking up some of the things you ate on your travels, tell them things that you learnt, show them photos of the people you met, and play the music you danced to in the local bar!
This is a great way to reflect on your time away and give the opportunity for others to immerse themselves in your entire experience. Certainly a unique alternative that will be remembered and appreciated by all!
