Traveling during the holidays can be hectic, especially when you’re trying to bring Christmas gifts with you. It’s important to know the Transportation Security Administration’s rules when putting gifts in your carry-on and checked luggage, so that no one is left empty handed on Christmas morning.

Obviously things like weapons aren’t allowed with you on a plane, but you should know that toys that look like weapons aren’t allowed in carry-on luggage either. Toys that look like explosives aren’t allowed on the plane at all.

The most important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t wrap presents until after you have arrived at your destination. If the TSA has to screen your luggage, there’s a chance they will have to unwrap gifts.

Follow these simple rules and make sure you aren’t packing anything prohibited to ensure a seamless holiday season.
