Every time I was on my holiday or get a chance to travel to somewhere new, I never fails to bring back souvenirs for my families and friends.

I always buy something for my family, even though we can get it back home.  Perhaps I learn it from my mother. She always brings back a lot of stuffs for us when she travels and it makes us feel happy. It makes me feel happy to buy some gift for them too, to see them happy to receive it.Nevertheless, I also buy souvenirs for my friends.

There are many people to buy for; my hometown/childhood friends, my housemates, some of my ex-coursemates and my current colleagues and even some of the ex-colleagues. So, they are many people that I have to buy for but I am doing this willingly as I want them to be remembered when I am away and most importantly, I want to make them happy.

Most of the time, I try to buy some food stuffs and snacks for them to try to. So, overall, I would have spent quite much on souvenirs and gifts and not to mention, carry all of them back!Finding a souvenir is not easy, as sometimes you do not know what they like or sometimes it is just too expensive to be afforded.Sometimes I just get something simple, like a nice keychain or a magnet for friends. Or something more special for closer friends, like perfume or T-shirts or even a crystal bracelet.

But it is disappointing when the respond that I got was “That’s all only arr?” when I give them the souvenirs.

One can at least say thank you for the souvenirs that has been given instead of such sneer and unappreciative remark.Just keep in mind that it is not their obligation to get you something while they are on away, and they probably have spent much more than they should.

DAfter all, it’s the thought that counts.

    Yup, I try to get souvenirs back too whenever I go travelling. Haven’t encounter anyone giving me unappreciative remark but if I come across one, I’ll definitely not give him/her any souvenirs the next time around! :P
