The world’s worst souvenirs

By | Category: Travel news, Travel tips & opinions

Travel website, Crapsouvenirs.com, is celebrating the worst in holiday memorabilia and inviting users to upload pictures of their dubious holiday souvenirs. In light of this, CD-Traveller thought it was time to guide you through what’s hot and what’s not, when it comes to holiday mementoes

AUSTRALIA
Splurge
Wine. South Oz has some of the world’s finest vino and it’ll occupy your friends and family while you show them yet another picture of Uluru.


Save
Cuddly kangaroos, koalas and cork hats. Do you really have room for them at home?

USA
Splurge
Clothes. Look fantastic for a fraction of the price it would cost this side of the pond. We love Anthropologie and Abercrombie and Fitch.
Save
Glow in the dark statue of Liberty trinkets. Just say no!

SPAIN
Splurge

Olive oil. It’s cheap, plentiful and will provide you with a reminder of Spain’s pukka paella and tasty tapas everytime you cook dinner.


Save
Straw donkeys and plates showing Spanish attractions. Cheap? Yes. Chic? No.

RUSSIA
Splurge

Vodka. It’s a cliche, we know, but a tasty one! Stock up for the festive season.
Save Russian dolls. Another cliche but not half as enjoyable.

ITALY
Splurge
Venetian glass is renowned worldwide. You’ll be Miss/Mr Popular if you bring some back to Blighty.
Save


Model gondolas, Leaning Tower of Pisa pottery. They scream tacksville.
