    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.

    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.

    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.

    Steamboat Willie ornaments and plush. Also have a pin board next to my computer desk but the last few trips I've cut way back on spending.
