On Evelyn’s first day of soccer practice, she showed up with a soccer ball from Ireland and a Malaga C.F. scarf from Spain.

When you travel as much as we do, you have to control the amount of souvenirs you collect along the way, or they start piling up quickly. We don’t always buy souvenirs. However, when we do we try and find items that are functional (they will serve a purpose when returning home) and also meaningful.

Below are a few ideas for functional souvenirs to be on the lookout for on your next trip. Look for those things that have more purpose than just gathering dust on a shelf. You can usually find the best and most authentic goods in local markets.
