Most travelers bring something back from their trips to show friends and family. Few, however, spend a lot of time looking for a unique souvenir or at least something that is not going to be just a dust collector.

The truth is that every destination has a piece of history or culture that you can’t find anywhere else. There is a discovery to be made everywhere. Finding it is where it gets hard; your best bet is talking to locals.

Go for the mementos that are locally made, crafted, and revered. This is the best way to commemorate a voyage to a new destination. After all, you did get out of your element on your trip; so why would you bring home a standard relic?

Even T-shirts, mugs and key chains can be extraordinary, if you know where to look for them.
