Hopefully this summer you will have the chance to get away on some sort of vacation, no matter how big or small. I always like to get vacation souvenirs, but you know they can get pricey, they’re unoriginal and many are useless! It’s fun to buy knick knacks and kitschy t-shirts on your travels, but getting a vacation souvenir idea you will actually use, especially in decor, is like finding a rainbow unicorn.
Over the years things we have accidentally found on vacation have been the souvenirs I now cherish and look for. I’ve come to realize the best keepsakes from weekend getaways and family trips are the items we find along the way, on our outings and often from nature. Of course you must follow laws and regulations and not take things that are meant to stay put, but often great treasures are all around you if you just look!
This goody from our beach vacation to Mexico last summer has to be one of my favorite things EVER! My son has a history of eyeing great nature finds that he knows his mama will adore and this vacation he really hit the jackpot. (you can see another of his found items I LOVE here) While he was snorkeling he found this lacy coral drifting to shore. And he snatched it up for me. I of course asked around and made sure it was safe to keep and luckily – it was! I also got this unique looking wood from the beach, it just spoke to me so I kept it. See this awesome idea I made for Christmas from vacation finds.
How did I get this home you are wondering? I carried it on the plane in a bag, on my lap lashing out frequently at any of my children that even looked like they were about to smoosh my treasure! lol!
