Our Travel Tradition: A Collection

Though we didn't start our tradition when we first started dating, we did start one main tradition after we'd been dating a while.


What is that tradition?


Collecting magnets. When we take a trip (whether out of town, or just a local-ish day trip), we purchase a magnet to commemorate our time. While magnets don't necessarily have a practical use, they are small and inexpensive, making them ideal souvenirs. They are displayed throughout the year, and don't take up a ton of space - which is why we love them.

I wanted to share the magnets we've collected over the nine years we've been together.


Check it out.

  1. Oh fun! We used to collect magnets too..then it got out of control lol. After the fridge was overrun, we did a wall with magnetic paint too! Now we've switched to Christmas ornaments which is slightly more manageable for us. Love seeing all your fun magnet pics

    1. I like the Christmas ornament idea, too, but I would be sad that I only see them for about a month a year. We've found that magnets work well for us - I look forward to developing another idea to house them once our fridge gets too full!

    1. I've been hearing a lot of people doing the Christmas ornament thing. I love that, but would also be so sad to not get to see the ornaments very often!

  3. We collect magnets, too - but we don't have nearly as many as you do!

    1. We get them not just when we go like out of state, but also if we go to semi-local attractions (hence all of the Atlanta magnets, lol!).
