Travel Souvenir

Travel SouvenirAny beach that I’ve gone to has a special place in my heart and it’s always heartbreaking to say goodbye to the sand, waves, sunset and all. But why feel sad if I can bring the beach (part of it) with me at home?

Aside from buying keychains and taking thousands of photos, I collect shells fresh from the seashore and place them in a jar as travel keepsakes. Lately, I decided to make it extra special by creating a DIY souvenir. Starting with a pretty memento I created from last month’s trip where I was so lucky to visit an underrated beach, rich with beautiful shells and sand. I got the small jar from a department store and after filling it with stuff I collected, I made a handwritten label to look more artsy.

If you can’t find some shells, you can still make it with only the sand, tiny rocks, pebbles or even the water itself. You can get creative with the look and display purposes. Stop being sad when leaving your well-loved destination and just relive the travel feels with this cheap and easy DIY souvenir idea!

    Such a cool idea actually. 🙂 I just watched a movie where her father collects snow globe from the places he travelled to. And this DIY souvenir sounds so cool.

    I thought of doing this before however, after my trip in Bohol, hnd na ako nag attempt pa. There are places kase na bawal maguwi kht any single shell lang. Pero if ganun lang nmn dba wala na mang epekto sa marine life bkt pa? If you’re getting the one in the sea shore lang okay lang nmn siguro. Haha

      Aside from travel restrictions, there are some beaches where you can’t find any single shells. It’s a no-no to pick up the ones that have something alive inside so you can opt to bring home some pebbles/rocks or sand nalang. I’ve also had those from my previous travels. Hope this would help! 🙂
