I am curious what you would include in that category. It isn't something that comes to mind for me when packing.

I have taken stuff like a deck of cards and games and mailed them home the first time I sent a batch of stuff home.

2 years ago, we did a long tour in Pacific NW. Many fond memories, especially on Lopez Island. On chance, meet a yearly large native american gathering, what fun, they gave us a ride in large canoes and we learned about them. Random interesting stuff on tours, meeting friendly helpful people...just another day on tour
That is the kind of thing that is the real joy of touring. Meeting the folks that live on the land you pass through is great. Meeting the local folks, seeing their culture, sampling their food, and so on is often the best part of touring.
