Do you buy something each time you visit as a "tradition"?

We love Disney (of course!) and were just talking to friends of ours who also go frequently, and they showed us their collection of snow globes that they have been collecting for years--they buy a new snow globe every visit as a tradition. My DH and I were talking and thought it was such a cute idea (and we are many visits behind in doing this but hey, it's a good a time as any to start!)...so what kind of traditions do you have when it comes to memorabilia? Anything specific that you like to collect? Just looking for ideas for our next visit, which won't be for a while, but I'm a planner! LOL

My wife buys ornaments for the christmas tree. I'm a pin trader so I like to buy or trade for one "unique" pin related to the specific trip. Last time was the 2012 MVMCP pin. Others were pins with the year. Next time will be a DVC pin I think.

We do exactly the same thing, a magnet of the year's design for every year we've gone. Plus another 4-pack of other magnets each time, we have the heads of Pooh and the gang, Mickey's iconic shoe, hand, shorts and ears, and the same as clip magnets.

My daughter has a Disney charm braclet- each trip she gets a new charm.
She has DVC, Disney Cruise, resort, characters, etc.
It is so full she seldom wears it but lots of great memories.

I always buy a new pair of ears (ones that match the theme of the trip if available), one thing with that year's design on it, and a new ornament for the tree.

Smile Traditions

We buy postcards, pins, and we always have a CD that has music for the theme of each trip. Also, we buy an antenna topper based on the theme of the trip.

We do ornaments and magnets, if there's something different or special for an occasion. But our ornaments can be, and usually are, not traditional. We'll get a key chain or something we can hang on the tree instead of a real ornament.

Oh, and my wife likes finding new antenna balls. When my son and I went to WDW for the W&D 1/2 marathon last year, we found a sale on them at VWL and we surprised her with two weird ones.

Now I'm trying to figure out a way to display them somewhere because over the years she's built up quite a collection, from both WDW and DLR.

Coffee cup and a "year" golf shirt.

Did you know 2011 was the only year that a knit shirt with the year on it was not sold? According to the information desk at DTD in WOD, that's a fact. I asked 4 times that year.

We used to buy pins and refrigerator magnets each time. My oldest son would buy a mug also. My oldest now buys the Vinylation (?) characters.
