The duffle bags are unpacked, you're still reeling under a jet lag, and ofcourse, dreading the upcoming Monday when you get back to work mode. But, you have to admit, you don't feel like shaking off that vacation vibe.

From boarding passes that you lovingly stored in your handbag to souvenir postcards bought at a popular flee market and even postage stamps saved up from postcards and letters sent to you by your beloved — there's no reason to let go of your memorabilia.

Make your vacation picks into wall art, put them into fun frames or flirt with bright fairylights to jazz up you room and stud your home with the sounds, smells and sights of your holiday.

* Holiday hangover

Your photobooth polaroids can find a new home, as they flirt with strings of festive fairylights or any other decorative ones in your bedroom corner. All you need is some paper clips and fun memories.

* Unlock the love
Here's a quirk-filled way to flaunt cute postcards, snapshots and any other memorabilia from your holidays. Use a decorative cage in a responsible and fun way and put those paper or wardrobe clips to use.

* Set the frame
Are you in love with all things vintage? Bring on the holiday mood to your study table and frame your boarding passes in minimalistic ebony. You could do the same with stamps from holiday cards from overseas.

* Magnet charm
Souvenir magnets are the cutest route to celebrating your holiday. Use these sticky charms to use as invisible frames for your postcards and hoist them up on your refrigerator.
