What to submit?

  • A great photo(s) of your souvenir.  This is the backbone of the database.

Optional to submit:

  • Photos of the shop/market where you bought it
  • Photos of the local area to provide additional context to the souvenir
  • Any written commentary or stories you would like to include involving the souvenir (you don’t have to write a post, we will edit and make it pretty)
  • If you would like to be credited for your photos/story please include the info on the submission form.  We can also link to your blog.  It’s ok to remain an anonymous contributor too.

Tips on what makes a good souvenir:

You can’t find it anywhere else.

Or the availability elsewhere is limited.

You can’t easily order it online (perishable, foreign website impossible to navigate, or no website).

A Fun Collection (of anything- magnets, room keys, stickers, pots)

Antique or vintage.

Made or designed in the region you’re buying it in.

Relates to the culture or history of the area.

It’s useful (a kitchen gadget, soap, clothing)

It’s a good value.

It makes you laugh

It’s “lucky”. We at Souvenir Finder are suckers for good luck talismans of any kind.

It’s none of these things but you know if you take it home with you, it will remind you of that small window of time.
