I don't generally buy the classic souvenir when I'm traveling, but I like to pick up something as a reminder of the trip that I can regularly use. I still covet my bright pink tweezers from Paris and fear traveling with them at the thought of losing them in luggage.
Our trek from Las Vegas to Idaho, and back to Vegas was a great two weeks and I needed something to remember it by, when I stumbled upon this quirky Hoola Hooping plate from Anthropologie. The perfect momento to remember a hoola hoop contest won and a great weekend with friends. It's sitting on the shelves near the sink and I laugh every time I look at it.
