Copenhagen | Travel | Souvenirs

I don't know if you read my previous blog post about souvenirs? If not you can read it here. I mentioned how I'm always a little disappointed with the lack of souvenirs I buy when travelling.

I just about managed to get the post up before travelling to Copenhagen on the Friday. I vowed to try harder at the souvenir buying, and you'll be pleased to hear that I did quite well.. I found some lovely little keepsakes for our little flat, and aren't tacky looking souvenirs. There wasn't a fridge magnet in sight. Hello stylish looking souvenirs that can take pride place on my bookshelves.


Anyway lets start with this little camera clip, on the left. I thought it would be perfect for displaying a photo of Copenhagen or a postcard. It also reminds me of the instagram logo.

I'm quite partial to postcards, in fact I'm not sure why I didn't mention them in my 'Souvenirs' post. I pick up postcards from pretty much all of the places I travel. I have quite a collection. I loved this 'Wonderful Copenhagen' by Viggo Vagnby. It's the vintage look that appeals to me, and who could resist those ducks! Then of course there's the København postcard which fits perfectly in the little camera picture holder.



Here we have a lovely candle holder from Hay. Hay is a contemporary furniture shop, with some lovely pieces. It's the perfect show home, and I'd quite happily live there. I love the 'Scandi design'.


So there's what I bought in Copenhagen. What are your favourite souvenirs?

Oh, wait... How could I forget the other souvenirs I bought?!

 

We nipped to the Carlsberg experience, just to pick up a few bits for The Boy. I had to leave this 1 litre can of Carlsberg there due to only having cabin baggage. Ha! I did however find some little souvenirs which he was very pleased with - some Carlsberg pencils, pen and a beer glass. All stylish souvenirs in keeping with the rest of my souvenir shopping, of course ;-)

Until next time. X
