If you’re not a “wish you were here” t-shirt person or if you’re not interested in the tacky souvenirs, consider thinking outside of the box.
I am a subscriber to Birchbox and every month I get a nice cardboard box with samples in it. I save these boxes because they’re just too nice to throw away. Turns out, they are fantastic travel keepsake holders. I usually save post-cards, stickers, receipts and other items from my travels and they all fit nicely in here with easy access for a trip down memory lane.
For Christmas this year, my husband found an old Euro from one of our last trips and made me a necklace. It’s simple and yet I’ve received dozens of compliments. It’s also nice to wear around something from my trip.
Instead of trying to haul back large items, I purchase my favorite art print post-cards from museums and frame them. They would be too small on a wall by themselves, but after 5 or 10 of these it makes a great little collage and reminder of all the great art work that moved you while you were away.
How about you? How do you display your travel keepsakes?
