Popular Souvenirs from Around the World (Inspired by FTLO Summer Trips)

June 21, 2019

While ending a vacation usually means you have to leave all the beauty and adventure behind, it doesn't mean you can't bring a bit of your travels back with you in the form of a souvenir.

 

Selecting the right souvenir means you can relive your vacation every now and then, or you'll have a little source of inspiration to plan your return again some day soon.


From unique local drinks and artisanal foods, to handmade jewelry and leather goods, here are some of the most popular souvenirs to collect from around the world – inspired by FTLO's upcoming summer trips for 2019

 

 

GREECE

  • Jewelry with the Blue Eye: You've probably encountered this symbol before. You've seen it on jewelry, or painted on ceramics. It's the Greek matiasma, a traditional symbol that is essentially meant to protect the user of the jewelry (or owner of the art) from bad thoughts or intentions. 

  • Ceramic Art: There are hundreds of traditional workshops offering all kinds of handmade ceramics. This is a beautiful gift to bring back for your own home or to gift to someone. 

  •  Greek honey: This is among the most popular souvenirs you can collect while visiting Greece. There are a variety of options, but one of the most outstanding flavors is chestnut or thyme.

FLORENCE

  • leather gloves: Italy is known for its high quality leather, and Florence is one of the best spots in the world for picking up leather goods. Their gloves, in particular, are iconic for their pristine tailored look and supple leather. 

  • hand-printed paper il papiro: Il Papiro produces hand-printed stationary right before your eyes. Artists are on site, soaking, dipping and painting beautifully crafted stationary for a perfect ready-to-take-home souvenir. 

  • Perfumes: Select from some of the most elegant scents in the world, or try your hand at putting together a unique scent of your own at the local perfume shops.
