Travel Tip of the Day: Don’t Wrap Gifts

PresentDon’t Wrap Gifts
If you’re planning on carrying presents onto the plane, then wait until you arrive at your destination to wrap them. That’s because if the TSA finds the gifts to be questionable when going through screening they’ll just unwrap them! You can always pack some wrapping paper and tape or pick some up when you arrive at your destination. It’s better than watching the TSA destroy the wrapping job you took your time to do.

  1. Great travel tip regarding presents that are wrapped.

  2. I use gift bags. This way the TSA can peak in, but i’m ready to deliver presents when I arrive!

  3. I used to do that. Now, especially if I have a gift wrapped at the store, I take my chances.
    And not one wrapped gift in my checked baggage was ever unwrapped!
