I don’t know about you, but when I travel I like to pick up different things that will one day spark a memory of my trip and what I loved (or something that didn’t go to plan).
I could get the normal touristy stuff, and sometimes I do, but I’m often left wondering what to do with it when I get home (hello shamu toy from sea world san diego!!). I like to think outside the box and get something that is special to the place but can also be used too.
Here are some of my picks for a trip to London.
I especially love the idea of the cake tins if you can fit them in your bag as they make for great gifts and are something you can use over and over again. I have a biscuit tin in the shape of France that I got in Southern France and it always brings a smile to my face when I see it.
I also love the Liberty London note cards as there really is only one place to get them and Liberty is worth the trip!
