When friends or family travel, my only request ever is a postcard. Here’s why I think they make the best travel souvenirs.
1. They are cheap
Postcards are ridiculously cheap! Many countries have bulk offers on postcards. So my travel friend/fam doesn’t have to fork out large amounts of money to get me a souvenir.
2. They are timeless
Like hand-written letters, I feel like postcards will (or at least should) be there forever and never go old.
3. They are thoughtful
With a hand-written message and the trouble the sender goes through to post them, it doesn’t more personal.
4. They are easily available.
Ever had a friend send you for something that you don’t even know where to get? Well, no trouble finding postcards anywhere. Coffee shops, curio shops, convenience stores, supermarkets, airports, literally everywhere.5. They are beautiful collectibles I have a small section of my wall where I stick the postcards I receive. They are pretty to look at and give me little parts of the globe. 🙂
If you’re currently out on a trip somewhere fun, please feel free to send me a postcard (email me for my address 🙂 ) I will def be returning the favour.
