I've been looking through some of the odds and ends I've collected over the years that I've bought back from holiday. I try to bring home something nice every year and I always buy the yearly fridge magnet :D

Does anyone else collect anything or bring back some souvenirs, if so what sort of things do you bring home from your holiday.

We almost always buy at least 2-3 Christmas ornament every trip. We must have at least 40-50 Disney ornaments.

I tend to buy three things:

1. kitchen item (whether disney food or cooking tool)
2. a picture frame
3. a mug/cup

I like to buy things I can use.

Passholder pins and/or special pins for the season (i.e. F&W, MVMCP, MNSSHP), t-shirts from any of the parties or F&W. Christmas Ornaments (we have an entire tree in our foyer dedicated to Disney).

We used to get an ornament from the Art of Disney store at DTD on each trip. They were quite nice and had a "hidden" surprise inside them and we must have around 10 of them by now.
Sadly the range has now been discontinued so we now only buy whatever takes our fancy at the time.

I'm always on the lookout for Disney polo shirts. I usually buy 4 or 5 each trip. Sadly, they don't seem to have as much variety in them as they used to. In the old days, it seemed that every resort, restaurant, or attraction had one specifically themed for them.

Not so much anymore. :sigh:

Tom (:macwave:... but I still try to hunt them down.)

They used to sell oxford shirts (white, blue, French blue) that were really nice. I would get one each time. We also got a set of stonewear over the years. They shipped it to our home. That was nice. Last trip I got a really nice pen (engraved with Disney's sketches of Mickey), and tins of breath mints.

We have purchased Christmas ornaments too over the years.


Oh we got African salad fork and spoon, and carved wine bottle corks (had African animals on them) from our stay last time at AK.

I buy Walt stuff. I also buy prints of pictures I like. I have a Disney themed kitchen/dining room and have some stuff in there.

When my BF and I first started dating in high school and he couldn't take me to Disney with him he would bring me back the little charms to add to a Disney charm bracelet he got me on one his trips. I've only gone once but I decided I would carry on the tradition and pick up a charm (which I did and will continue). I don't wear the bracelet very much now because I've lost a quite few of the charms from excessive wear.
I also like to buy anything that will sit on my desk or artwork. And pens, like really nice pens. I remember eyeing a few of those. :lol:

Every trip I get a new Disney coffee mug. Alway purchased the last day. They tend to reflect the spirit of that trip.

Several are at home but I always keep at least one or two at each of my offices. Being a true coffee drinker, I hold them often, causing me to remember that trip.

One of VP's, a real sports oriented guy asked if I wasn't a bit old for a Mickey mug. I guess he just doesn't get it.

I would not trust that the snow globe would make the journey in checked luggage.

Snow globes can't be carried on. I assume that's for international as well

I gathered that sigh would just hope that it will survive the journey

:doh: never thought about the snow globes :rolleyes: and the liquids rule.

I've only ever bought one home and I carried that in my hand luggage but that was back in 1993.

I always bring back t-shirts, mugs also. I also found a cute picture frame in 2007 when I went.

I tend to be practical - even in my souvenir shopping - buying things for my office, or my kitchen. I love the sticky notes, pads, pens, etc. that they have though I'm awful about buying them and not wanting to consume them because they are so cute ;-) I always buy a few Mickey Rice Krispy Treats, and when we were there at Christmas last year, we bought an ornament each day to decorate our little tree in the room...those have quickly become some of my favorite items ;-)
