Planning on year end travel? Whether you are going to warm places like tropical paradise of Indonesia, or going to some colder countries like those in Europe, never fail to plan your vacation well.
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.
2. Unique and authentic
Handmade souvenir usually is either local culture infused or made with local culture and custom in mind. Thus handmade souvenir would has its own authenticity, looks unique and different from the mass factory made products.
3. Cannot be found anywhere else
Because of its authenticity and cultural infusion, handmade souvenir usually cannot be found anywhere else like these puppets from Tana Toraja, South Sulawesi Indonesia.
Remember to plan your vacation well so that you can make the most of it.
