The French Word ‘Souvenir’ means remembrance or memory and now refers to an object that is bought as a memento of happy travels and encounters; a thing that will remind you of a holiday or place you visited or commemorates a special event.

It conjures up tea-towels, spoons, coasters, mugs (anyone has a Will and Kate mug?) and the snow dome which almost needs a chapter to itself, appearing first in France in 1878 and evolving into the Hong Kong mass produced snow domes for tourist kiosks everywhere. My favourite is the Uluru snow dome, careless to its inherent contradictions and kitsch to the max.
