Keepsakes (Souvenirs) and Kindness
Every trip deserves a few dollars in the budget for Keepsakes. I can tell you, I’m not a huge fan of souvenirs. I think a majority of them are a waste of money and quite tacky.
My daughter does like to get patches from places she visits. I think that is a great idea. She has a box full of patches from places we have visited. We need to figure out what to do with them.
Sometimes I’ll get some cute shot glasses that will barely be used, from places I visit.
The boys just want food and candy. Very rarely do they ask for anything from the gift shops.
Sometimes we get t-shirts. I think in Yellowstone we will have to get some t-shirts.
What kind of keepsake/souvenirs do you like to get on trips?
Kindness is my second K word.
We must be kind to those around us and the things around us. I was trying to think of some kind things I can do for others on our trip.
I plan on picking up a lot of donuts at Wall Drug to share with people that will be camping around us. Everyone loves donuts.
At Crazy Horse, they are doing a food donation drive during the time we are going to be there. I am going to get some food to donate while we are there.
I am going to give people the benefit of the doubt; that we are all here to be kind and visit a beautiful place.
What kind things do you do for people while on vacation? How do you pay it forward?
