Avoid those cookie-cutter goods. Most of the fridge magnets you see in street shops and bazaars abroad are mostly locally designed. Especially in some small towns, there are often surprises. In Europe and the United States, refrigerator magnets have long been an independent design part of the tourism industry and one of the most popular cultural and creative products. Buying a fridge magnet when traveling abroad is a regular choice for most people, and many people choose to store a fridge magnet. It is said that some collectors decided to replace the refrigerator with a larger double-door refrigerator after filling the refrigerator.
1. What is a fridge magnet?
As the name implies, refrigerator stickers are home accessories that are affixed to refrigerators or steel materials. At first, it actually existed in the form of auxiliary notes. European and American households who had refrigerators for a long time and were used to shopping in supermarkets initially used magnetic stickers to stick sticky notes on refrigerators, making note of shopping lists, or reminding themselves or their families. In particular, European and American households are accustomed to buying the ingredients needed for one week at a time on the weekend, and making a list becomes an essential step.
They will also take advantage of the high frequency of using refrigerators and post notes on them to leave messages to their families, which is sometimes a good way to add family fun.
Some of the more fun are some Japanese housewives, who will list the things stored in the refrigerator, and then paste them on the refrigerator door with magnetic stickers. The thoughtful person will even draw a picture of the food directly, at a glance. After each shopping or cooking, they will increase or decrease the list on paper. In this way, you wo n’t forget what ’s in the refrigerator, you wo n’t buy it again, and you wo n’t let some food be hidden behind the refrigerator. For Chinese families, this is really a good way to learn from. If every household can promote the role of refrigerator magnets like this, then how much demand for refrigerator magnets will be generated, and the economic benefits generated from it will be inestimable.
Later, someone designed the magnetic sticker, which became a refrigerator sticker, and the function changed from record to ornament.
After that, the fridge magnet went on a trip and became one of the most common travel souvenirs.
2. The most popular travel souvenirs
As a fridge magnet enthusiast, even if you don’t buy big-ticket items, you can find a lot of favorite fridge magnets on the go. Over time, the refrigerator at home will be fully covered, and even the refrigerator stickers will have to compete for posts, and those that are eliminated will have to be stacked in drawers. Sometimes it is necessary to bring gifts to your friends. If you are serving one person, you often choose refrigerator stickers.
Why can refrigerator magnets become the darling of souvenirs? Because it takes into account the three characteristics of regional characteristics, portability and easy preservation.
Let me talk about regional characteristics first. Fridge Magnet is a gadget, but the regional characteristics are obvious. The fridge magnets you saw in Paris are definitely different from those you saw in London. Even if it is the same country, the fridge magnets you see in different cities are different. For example, the fridge magnets in Prague, you can see the shape of Castle Hill, Tien church, dancing house, etc., but go to the library 70 kilometers away Tenahola, most of the fridge magnets you see are probably the most famous human bone churches in the area. Therefore, refrigerator magnets have distinct regional characteristics. Looking at the landmarks on the refrigerator magnets to guess place names is also a good opportunity for travel control to “show off”.
