One of the main thing people do while on vacation is souvenir shopping, besides sight seeing. Why is souvenir shopping so important? Well, some people do need something to take home to their place / country to remind them of their great time at vacation. Souvenirs could easily bring back the memoirs of vacation and the happiness would be nudged.

Plan well to hunt nice souvenirs. Don’t waste time and money on buying the overpriced crappy souvenirs which would go straight to your trash bin after you brought them home.

Why look for handcrafted souvenirs instead of mass made souvenirs? Here are 3 reasons:

1. Support the local community and small businesses

Buying local made handcrafted souvenir would help to support those businesses then maintain the local welfare. This would mean that your beloved vacation spot would always be maintained well by the locals hence you can always enjoy another great vacation there.
