Beautiful Memories Make Souvenirs Really Special

Vacation is not complete if there is no bring home stuff. I mean, buying souvenirs in gift shops is not always the last part of the trip, right? Whenever we see something unique and interesting, we do not think on buying it immediately…especially if we find it very affordable.

I love getting souvenirs for my family and friends. Depending on the budget, I would like buy everything for them as much as possible. My sisters loves getting keychains made from other places. Me? I love collecting stuffed toys and pillows. Some people likes handmade souvenirs. There is something in these mementos make them really special. I know, it’s the beautiful memories.

A friend who just came back from Australia got herself a couple of stuffed koala. Oh they are just so huggable. She said she found those very cheap in Australia souvenirs shop. I was just so shy to ask one from her 🙂 Bookmark and Share Stumble Upon Toolbar Review My Post

Watch Your Budget When You Are On A Vacation

There are many souvenir shops at SeaWorld. I bought a white hat from there because the heat was killing me. And wearing a hat helped cool my head from being over exposed to the sun. Hats are all over the gift shops at SeaWorld. They also sell stuffed toys like dolphin, shark, sea lion, whale, etc. There are also stores all over the place that sells men and women swimwear, shirts and shorts, summer handbags and flip flops, toys and other accessories. Of course, food stands are everywhere too. But I have to tell you, the prices are kind of…let me say…beyond our budget. The parking fee? $20 per day. Well, it is fun to be there so it does not matter, I think.

Personalized Souvenir And Marketing Tool

I have been communicating with one of my blogger friends online for some time now. She is living presently living in Europe. My friend R is enjoying the fruit of her labor. And traveling to different parts of the continent is her hobby. She has also explored America and been to Asian countries. Originally, R is from the Philippines. Same country where I came from. But I am currently residing in Texas.

To me, traveling is very interesting. The chances of meeting other people and experiencing different traditions seem like the world is not difficult to roam.

R is excited about giving me some souvenirs from her trips. Same here. Though I am not a frequent traveler, there are many interesting places and things here where I live. We agreed to exchanging postcards. Is not it sweet?

When I was younger, I am used to collecting and sending postcards. Actually I have a bunch of them in my storage box. They came from different places…international and local. My pen friends and close relatives sent me pretty and colorful postcards of any kind. Besides representing a country’s or a place’s identity, postcards can also be personalized which can be used for individual or business purposes. For individual use, we are free to put our own design as we create the postcard personally. And for business purposes, these postcards can be designed to what is preferred by the company to serve as marketing materials. With the strong competition in the market, business people think of strategies to make people buy the products they are marketing for. Postcards are effective marketing tools.

Back to my friend R, she is sending me postcards soon. An e-mail from her states that she is making them personalized. She took so many pictures on her travels. Wow! I cannot wait.
