Put those magnets down and back away slowly.

As much as it’s tempting to get your souvenirs in one fell swoop at a gift shop, giving some thought to them can be a rewarding investment. Not only does it make you attach specific memories to each piece you select, but the stories and cultural references makes them all the more meaningful. So if you’re giving them away, it’s that much more thoughtful.

Russia, like any country, has many significant tokens you can collect apart from the gift shop variety. Some, like the Matryoshka dolls are still worth picking up, while others like Malachite, may have an even better alternative.
