Liquid rules from 17 things you need to consider if traveling with Christmas gifts
17 things you need to consider if traveling with Christmas gifts
Any gifts that contain liquids or gels have to either be packed in checked luggage, or adhere to the TSA’s rules for carrying liquids on the plane. All liquids, gels, creams, aerosols and pastes have to be in containers that hold 3.4 ounces or less. Those containers must fit in one quart-sized resealable bag, and each traveler can only have one such bag.
English Christmas Crackers
Christmas Crackers, a wrapped cardboard tube filled with a prize that makes a loud snap when opened, are not allowed in carry-ons or checked luggage due to the small explosive cap in them. All fireworks and explosive materials are prohibited in both checked and carry-on luggage.
Check the bins
Make sure to thoroughly check the bins after getting through the security check point to make sure you have all of your gifts and personal items. The TSA maintains a lost and found at each airport. Items will be held until 30 days, fter which they will be sold, with the profits going to the Treasury to pay down the national debt.
Consider shipping gifts to your destination ahead of time, especially if the gift is hard to pack or isn’t allowed on a plane. Amazon allows customers to mark orders as gifts, which will notify the recipient who it is from, hide the price and include a personalized message. Gift wrapping is also available.
