Seashells as Souvenirs

Souvenirs from trips are fun to collect, but you don't always have to buy them. When visiting the beach, pick up seashells or small rocks. Carry a resealable plastic bag with you to keep them away from the rest of your things. Once you are settled in your hotel or once you arrive back home, remember to wash the shells to make sure there are no unwanted critters still living in them.

These natural reminders of your trip will probably mean more once you get them back home than if you spent money on something.

Not sure what to do with them once you get home? Fill a small dish with the shells and place it in your bathroom. Or use the seashells and rocks around your potted plants or in your garden. If you visit several beaches, fill a glass jar or container to display them. You could even add some beach sand in the bottom of the jar.
