I got many inquires from family and co-workers to bring back a souvenir to commemorate my DC trip. T-shirts, buttons, and mugs are great, but the cost adds up when you are shopping for multiple people.
Lisa came up with a great idea and I'm totally jacking it. We found some really great (ie: not cheesy) Inauguration postcards and brought a small stack of them. We will frame and gift wrap them to present to our family and friends who missed out.
