Natural Mementos from Vacations

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 555 Posts

Natural Mementos from VacationsRather then buy useless trinkets while on vacation, I collect pods, seeds, shells, rocks or plants from tropical vacations and afterward like to display them at home as a natural and one of a kind reminder of my trip!


I use various clear or colored plastic champagne glasses or other pretty bowls I have or purchase. They are attractive as a centerpiece or even on a shelf or coffee table. Great for children's "found" items as well and it will make their vacation collections more meaningful than another plastic toy.

You could even add ticket stubs, postcards or other memorabilia, if you'd like

Editor's Note: Be sure to review any travel restrictions for transporting natural materials (plants and produce) over state or national borders.

I do this as well. I often bring back a small container of sand from a beach or a desert, and display items set into the sand. Beach glass and different sorts of rocks are also interesting. There are some countries that are very fussy about this; you can not take anything like that into the Galapagos (or out of it, for that matter).


Some places are even fussy about such things as pencils made out of twigs!
