TACKY SOUVENIRS


I'm not one who needs or wants tacky souvenirs whenever I travel to a new place.

1) I don't like to carry things
2) I usually don't spot a key chain or ash tray I can't live without

Since I don't buy this stuff for myself, I usually don't think to get things for other people unless they specifically ask me to bring them back something. Otherwise, I feel like what I buy will get me a smile when they receive it and will then go to some junk drawer. Does this make me a bad friend/sister/aunt/daughter?

I think if you try to please everyone you end up wasting your whole vacation shopping for other people. So I don't buy for anyone. I don't want a souvenir from a place I haven't been anyway, so why would someone else? If they want it so bad, google it. No, you are not horrible. Unless there is a special little person (under 4 ft) in your life that adores you. Then you have to bring something back. Even if its tacky.

Aren't you the one that always asks for squished pennies? (cough, cough) ;)
