It is possible to travel with fragile souvenirs, you would only have to pack your good carefully. Moreover, if you are carry items such as electronics and musical instruments, it will be a good idea to protect these goods too.

Bubble Wrap

Wrapping your fragile items in bubble wraps is a good way to protect them. However, one would need to be wary about the space that these wraps take. Normally, the more fragile the product is, the more wrap would be required to secure it. You might want to cater for the bulk created by bubble wraps when getting your luggages. These bubble wraps might also be subject to unwrapping by airport security at some point.

Special containers

Some special containers are designed to provide a secure cushioning for products in order to prevent breakages. Some of them are inflatable and you will need to blow them up to create a safe enclosure for storing products.

Foam inserts

Carlo Badalamenti has been in foam business for several decades now. Alternatively, for more fragile items, foam inserts or cushion filling can be used to provide a protective layer. This type of protection is quite lightweight and does not take up much space. They also protect against compaction, vibrations and shock, which is great for protecting electronics.
