To be honest, I have brought plenty of souvenirs from the places where I visited so far. If I have to choose one to describe, it would be a bookmark stick. It is blue in colour and the size is same as the ice-cream stick. It also has a tiny teddy at the one end.
I purchased this on my last holiday when I went to Sydney, Australia. When I went to the Sydney Opera House, there were lots of items to buy in a mall. However, I brought it from the lady who was selling souvenirs on the walking trail. Not only she gave me at the cheapest price but also offered me a free gift.
The main reason I brought it from her is that she was working very hard for her livelihood and earning very little just to provide a meal for herself. Moreover, I brought particularly only the bookmark stick is because I didn't have one.
To sum up, I think buying something from a tourist place is very important, as this will remind you of the holiday days you spent there. It is also nice to have at least one item from your holiday to show up on your showcase.
