One of our favorite quotes circulating the social media-sphere is 'Collect Moments Not Things', and while we certainly take pride in minimizing our travel suitcases and footprints, there's no denying that searching for the perfect souvenir is a great way to get wonderfully lost and local in a new city. Plus, there's nothing like pulling out those fragrant spices or sporting that colorful scarf upon returning home to transport us back to faraway lands. What are your favorite souvenirs? We want to hear them all!
