6 Souvenirs You Should Never Buy

While it is very thoughtful for a friend or family member to bring us back souvenirs when they travel, most of the time we end up not knowing what to do with them! How many magnets, mugs, and key chains can we really own? Of course, it’s a great gesture to bring back gifts for your friends and family, but sometimes it seems more like a chore than a fun activity to do on vacation. Check out what not to buy your loved ones the next time you go on a trip.

Here are 6 souvenirs you should never buy.

1. Anything from the Airport

Don’t buy any souvenirs from the airport! Be sure to plan ahead and buy your souvenirs before your flight home. Airport souvenir stores tend to be highly over-priced for merchandise that can easily be found somewhere else for much less. Most of the time the souvenirs are unoriginal, anyway. No one really wants a Statue of Liberty t-shirt or an “I heart NY” mug/keychain.

2. Currency

Don’t give your friends leftover foreign currency such as euros as a collectible or souvenir. Most likely, they won’t know what to do with it and they won’t want it.

3. Key Chains and trinkets

Absolutely no key chains, coasters, mugs, or magnets! Unless, of course, your loved one collects any of these and will be able to use it. Most of the time people throw them in a drawer and forget about them.

4. Sand

Don’t come back with a bottle filled with sand or sea shells. Although you most likely got them from an amazing or exotic place, no one has any use for a bottle filled with sand from a beach they’ve never been to!

5. Traditional Clothing

I was once given traditional clothing from a country my friend had visited. While it is cool to see how the natives dress, most people would never dress like that in the U.S. and would have absolutely no use for clothing like that. Except maybe on Halloween!

6. “I heart ___.”

Whatever country or city you’re visiting, your friends probably don’t want a t-shirt, bag, poster, or anything with “I heart” on it. Even if they do heart it.

This is a comment to the admin. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your traffic to your site: http://gmbal.com/239r They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.

i did think taht losing %anchor% may make my overies greater but it really has not so this was somewhat disapointing for me but i suppose you cant have eveything in everyday life.

Great article! This is the type of information
that should be shared around the internet. Disgrace on the search engines for not positioning this post
higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website .
Thanks =)

If you wear the green formal skirt to attend your awarding ceremony or a charity party,
you will be the star in the crowd. Allow a fabulous
expression by donning at long precious stone danglers
with it for one chic look. In spite of the diversity in the choice
of dresses, many of the people who live in urban
parts of the country prefer to wear western dresses.

I have found the best kept secret in internet traffic and I want to share it with you. Everyone thinks the best website visitors comes from Google but the real quality visitors comes from paid traffic. The guys that I know that make the high 6 and 7 figures all buy their website traffic. Go here to see the service they shared with me: http://gmbal.com/189u

5 in the AP Pro32) pretty much own the Jets (No. 26, AP Pro32), winning the last four matchups and 17 of 22. New England has won 11 straight division games. The Patriots have Tom Brady, and even with a pedestrian receiving corps that could be missing top target Danny Amendola (groin injury), he knows how to pick apart a Rex Ryan defense.

Fructose (the sugar in fruit) is includes a different chemical composition then other sugars for instance maltose and lactose. Thus they’re all damaged down differently. I am not sure the precise relation to %anchor% although the sugars are certainly unique. This is precisely what I recall from an intro to diet lecture I attended.

If the Eagles were truly “playing it safe”, the data certainly supports that theory. According to Win Probability (WP), courtesy of Advanced NFL Stats, the Eagles were never truly in danger of losing to the Redskins.

Kenbrell Thompkins made a 38-yard catch on the drive that made it 13-3. In the closing seconds of the first half he also made a terrific diving stab in the end zone for what would have been a 25-yard touchdown. The replay, however, reversed the call.

“He listed several former teammates – Tedy Bruschi, Kevin Faulk, Troy Brown, Mike Vrabel – who represented the Patriots well on and off the field. “Everyone who has played here has played a part of what the New England Patriots are all about,” said Brady, wearing a dark blue sweatshirt with the words, “PATRIOTS ESTABLISHED IN 1960” on the front. “We realize that in light of the recent situation that probably those things get overshadowed and we’ve got to work hard to kind of re-establish what we’re all about. “And that’s, like we said, to win games and to be the best representatives of this team and organization and representatives for this city that we can possibly be.
