Save wine bottles (or at least the labels) - Souvenir tip

Many people have a nice bottle of wine when they dine out on vacation. When you're on vacation, scan the wine list for locally produced wines or choose a bottle with the restaurant's label. Instead of packing the bottles to lug home, ship them home as you leave each city.

Alternatively, if you don't have room for the bottles, soak the labels off the bottle in your hotel room, let dry overnight and press between the pages a book. At the very least, they make for a great color insert in your Moleskine.
