The One Thing to Bring Back: Our Favorite Souvenirs

No keychains, shot glasses or novelty tees here! These are what you really want to bring home.

There's nothing inherently wrong with buying a trinket to commemorate your trip or as gift for a friend. You could pick up one of those city-themed shot glasses, t-shirts, ceramic bells or keychains, but we know you're looking for something more, something that doesn't say, "I care about you so much that I stopped for two minutes at an airport shop on my way home."

Luckily, our Where editorial team knows what people really want to bring home from their travel destinations. From hand-poured candles to some cool urban bags to locally crafted spirits, our worldwide Where team has pitched in to help travelers pick out the one thing they need to bring home from their trip—no additional suitcase required.
