Wrapped gifts

 

While they are not prohibited, it may be necessary to unwrap your gifts or presents, whether in carry-on or checked baggage if the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is unable to clear the items by X-ray or other standard screening. To ensure that your gifts only need to be wrapped once, wait until you arrive at your destination to bust out the paper, ribbon and bows.

 

Fireworks

 

Fireworks can add a little extra flair to your holidays, especially around the New Year. As for bringing them on a plane… don’t even think about it. Firecrackers, signal flares and sparklers are not allowed — as carry-on or checked baggage — at any time.

 

Lithium battery-powered devices 

 

Children near and far are hoping to unwrap the newest, coolest holiday item this year — hoverboards. But, passengers should think about the batteries powering these and other electronic devices before bringing them to the airport.

 

A recent study found that each passenger carries an average of five lithium batteries on board. If you’re hoping to deliver a little holiday cheer in the form of electronics, please check the battery size.

 

Tips for properly transporting lithium batteries:

 

 

Battery-powered portable electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes, e-hookahs, personal vaporizers, electronic nicotine delivery systems, etc.) are strictly prohibited in checked baggage. Learn about these and six other surprising restricted items.
