There are plenty of cheap, mass-produced souvenirs for sale in touristy areas – one of my strongest memories of Paris is of constantly declining to buy anything from the guys draped with dozens of mini Eiffel Tower replica keychains – but every once in a while you come across a souvenir that truly connects to you. The perfect souvenir can come in many forms – the functional one that you use regularly for years to come, the sentimental kind that makes you smile fondly every time you glance at it, and the truly unique one that never fails to start a conversation. I asked a group of fellow bloggers from around the world to weigh in on the best souvenirs that they’ve purchased throughout their travels.
