A souvenir stall in London, England

A souvenir (from the French for "memory") is an object that is treasured for the memories associated with it.

The term tends to be used for items brought home from places one has visited, and such items are sometimes marked or engraved to indicate that their value is sentimental rather than practical, eg. "A Souvenir from Clacton-on-Sea". These typically include household items such as mugs and bowls, ashtrays, spoons and notepads, or clothing, eg. tee-shirts, hats.

Souvenir - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (208 words)
For example, if a traveller buys a souvenir on a memorable vacation, he or she will most likely associate the souvenir with the vacation.
Souvenirs can include household items such as mugs and bowls, ashtrays, spoons and notepads, or clothing such as T-shirts or hats.
Similar to a souvenir, memorabilia (from Latin, for "memorable") is an object that is treasured for its memories; however, unlike souvenirs, memorabilia are valued for a connection to a historical event, culture or entertainment.
OMD DISCOGRAPHY | SINGLES 1979 - 84 (396 words)
Souvenir proved to be OMD's biggest hit to date, reaching No. 3 in the UK charts.
The idea for the sleeve design for Souvenir stemmed from the lyrical theme of the song, which suggested to designer Peter Saville a French arthouse film showing a blossoming romance between a boy and a girl.
Saville was after a picture that gave the impression of a French street cafe and the picture that caught his eye, taken from a photo library, revealed a view from a balcony onto a Dusseldorf street scene.
