Souvenirs often get a bad rap. All it takes is a stroll through a dense tourist area filled with cheap, kitschy trinkets, and it's easy to see why. But souvenirs really shouldn't be equated with over-commercialized clutter. At their core, they are sentimental storehouses that evoke memories of cherished people, places, or experiences. And as our house tours show, souvenirs are one of the best ways to make a home feel like a deeply personal record of where you've been and how you've become the person that you are.
