My only thought is that my FH and I share the exact same thoughts as you and your Fiance, haahaahaahaahaa  I am sorry….When in doubt grab something from the Airport Gift Shop, haahaahaaa  (hope you’re laughing…)

We got souvenirs for everyone; they ranged from $3 to $15 and they didn’t take up too much space.  Get them something super super cheap!

Get them a magnet.  It’s small.  You can put it in your purse and it’s cheap.  Or you can get everyone shot glasses.

That’s obnoxious.  If she wants a souvenier so bad maybe you can shop for something nice and then give it to her for her next birthday or Christmas.

my brother and sil got us stuff, and my family always gets us things when they travel, so we did the same for them. nothing big, nothing expensive.

Honestly if she wants a souvenier then she needs to go on vacation. I’ve only ever bought my family souveniers when I went to Europe and nobody was expecting any at all. They were happily surprised but wouldn’t have been buggered if I didn’t get them anything at all.

I was about to ask how old she is, thinking she must be a kid, and then I re-read your post. Older sisiter?! Yeah, I agree with LaborofLove – postcard 🙂

When my sister got married and went on her honeymoon they came back with gifts for us and they had bought wedding gifts for everyone as well.  I got a cute t-shirt from Hawaii.  It was a really nice gesture!  I will probably get something for my family members as an additional little thank you.  Usually though if I go somewhere new for a first time I bring back a little something.  When my Fiance and I got engaged in Cabo last year I brought everyone back a little something.  My FI’s family is like that as well so it’s pretty much a go that’s we’ll be bringing back souvenirs.

However, it sounds like this came out of left field.  You may change your mind and opt to get a few gifts but if you don’t I don’t think it’s a big deal or something you have to do!  By the way, isn’t rude to ask for gifts unless it’s your wedding or birthday!

I think asking for it is kinda presumptuous.

But we tend to get people small things when we travel for a week or more. We’re planning a big European honeymoon so we plan on bringing everyone back a little something. One of the things we plan to do is ship a box of (individual) olive oil bottles back from Italy and that will be a gift for everyone. When FI’s parents went to Rome for their anniversary they brought us back a bottle and we treasured and milk that thing for ever!! It was sooo good!

hahaha my mom said this too!

We were talking about the honeymoon the other day and she said, “oh, well you’d better bring me something back.”  We’re going to a pretty non-touristy honeymoon spot.  I’m imagining there’s not going to be gift shops everywhere.  I have no plans of bringing back anything beyond postcards.
