#frugalfashionista : souvenir savings 

As promised in an earlier post, im sharing my little souvenir finds! 

You know, those same old cheesy souvenirs of shot glasses, mugs, hats, keychains, tshirts, monument replicas…..and on and on. But you can’t help but fall for them because you want something to keep for memory. They might be cheesy, but if you pick the right ones they can still be meaningful and quite nostalgic, instead of the annoying dust collectors that you eventually shove away in a box. 

1.Loved him! For one I love cats, two I love and drink coffee religiously and three “chat noir” is quite iconic for Paris. Who doesn’t want a vintage Cabernet slapped on their morning coffee?



2. Remember when baby spice made the British flag dress such a hot statement in the 90s? Well baby spice, I’m going to make this hat the next one! Ok so maybe I don’t have that much convincing power but I still couldn’t get over this hat for myself. I liked the neutral colors with the red pop and most of all I liked the iconic British flag.

 

3.Everything is cuter in mini size! Vespas are all over Europe! Picked one up for my sister and a friend. They were just so adorable and very reminiscent of the culture in Rome.



This is the kind of gift for someone who appreciates tradition and something a little more artsy- crafty. I thought the hand painted tile was beautiful and the illustration a good representation of a Spanish tradition.



Don’t be afraid to be the cliche tourist every once in a while. Pick wisely, things that are an emotional purchase for you and you’ll have souvenirs that could bring on a smile of memories for a lifetime! 

Much love – MA
