  1. Photos-I believe photography has incredible power especially if they’re your own.  So pin, sticky tack and frame ‘em.  Printing photos at Walgreens is super easy, quick and inexpensive.
  2. Square Prints-Rarely do I click on a sponsored post on Instagram, but the glorious word FREE caught my attention.  Parabo Press delivered my 25 free prints, and I was very impressed with its darling packaging and unique touch.  While you may have a bajillion 4×6 glossy photos lying around, these paper square prints offer a different, artsy take.  Use my code ODARYK and get 25 free prints here!Processed with VSCO with nc presetdsc_0301
  3. Photojojo Items-This site actually makes me so excited.  I would like to apologize to my roommate for freaking out because I want this Foldio so freaking badly!!  Photojojo also offers items like a shutter remote (a more sophisticated selfie stick) and magnetic photo ropesClick this link to receive $20 off your purchase of $50+ (it should automatically appear in your cart).
  4. Scrapbook-Whether you make a photo book on a site like Shutterfly or pop your 4x6s into a sleeved photo book, scrapbooks are always a good idea.  While a single photo is fantastic, these books tell a fuller story of your trip.  And when that wanderlust bug bites, these give you an easy way to relive your memories.French Scrapbooks France
  5. Map-If you didn’t already know, Paris stole my heart.  And I have every single type and variation of Paris memorabilia.  So, when I received a vintage Paris map for Christmas, I was stoked.
  6. DIY Bulletin Board-If you don’t know where to put all your photos and also have an abundance of tickets, brochures and the like, a DIY bulletin board makes it easy to include all of your bits of memories.  Full instructions here.diy-travel-bulletin-board-postcards
  7. Coordinate bracelet-I’ve always found these to be so darling and personal.  And it’s a fantastic conversation starter and an easy way to keep a city close to your heart.
  8. DIY travel print-Get artsy and make some inexpensive travel crafts.  Full tutorial hereDIY Travel Prints Wanderlust by Round Trip Travel
  9. DIY travel mason jar-Grab your paint and pick a design to put on your jar to satisfy your wanderlust.  And bonus: it can also double as a coin jar to save for your upcoming adventures.  Full instructions here.DIY Travel Mason Jar | Round Trip Travel
  10. Stickers-I actually could spend an entire paycheck on Redbubble stickers if no one stopped me.  I love my La Vie en Rose and Paris stickers that I put on my laptop.paris-france-french-la-vie-en-rose-stickers-red-bubble
  11. Postcards-It’s my new tradition to buy a postcard at each of my new travel destinations.  And tip: send a postcard back to your home so you can score the postmark from a different state or country!Post Cards Photos France
  12. Wall decor-When it comes to travel-themed things, I am so bad at impulse buying.  After I saw these vintage prints, I knew I couldn’t escape the wanderlust bug.  The day I buy my first place, I’m confident I will have zero need for any decor.  Whatsoever.Vintage Travel Prints Paris Monte Carlo
