What turns an everyday object bought in another country into a souvenir?
Obviously, it’s the iconic nature of windmills and clogs that have made these objects souvenirs. But souvenirs don’t have to be “iconic”. T-shirts, cook books, even babies can make great souvenirs. Heck, when I was in Kuala Lumpur for a day, I found a pair of glasses on the side of the street and decided to keep them as my Malaysian souvenir. They’re still tucked away in a box somewhere.
What kind of souvenirs do you buy?
