I have a question about flying for the holiday. I have read the airlines web page and they are asking for everyone too not wrap presents that are checked or carried on. What am I supposed to do with my Daughters presents? Jen is 20 years old so I will be hard pressed to cover this up so she doesnít see them. I have already asked her if she would like to open them before go but that didnít work. Anyone have any good ideas on what to do? I hate the thought of having to wrap everything when we get there, but I donít want the airline to hold my luggage. Any ideas for this dilemma would be greatly appreciated.
How about making her go through the security check point about 15 people AFTER you. Wrap the presents so that the top of the box or package is easily opened and closed. Re-wrap the package or re-stick it closed by the time she getst through the line.
Next time, maybe a gift certificate will work better!
Thanks for the great ideas!! My husband found out today that the suitcases has a liner so guess were Jen's presents are, yes you got in the liner of the hard shell. Thanks everyone for the good ideas!!
Just another idea which will work. Don't go through security WITH Jen. Make her go ahead of you and meet you at the gate. Then, have all of her presents in wrapped boxes that you can open and then close up again, (you know, wrap the top of the box and then wrap the bottom of the box.) Tie a ribbon around it after you get where you are going. (Also good for reusing another year).
Another idea, of course, is to use gift bags. Security can peek inside without you having to wrap and unwrap and wrap again.
Have a great Christmas!
PS: Divetex says to tell Jen "Merry Christmas," sell all her presents and get cash back and book another cruise. :o)
I just knew you all would come up with some great ideas!! Cruisecam tell Divetex I like his the best but I don't think Jen would like it. She is already snooping around the house for gifts. Besides Jen would want us to take her on the cruise with us, trust me the gifts are cheaper. I think the bags are going to be the ticket for wrapping this year. Thanks everyone for the great ideas!!
