No liquids, no gels and no sharp objects. These flight restrictions have been in place for long enough now and the rules are pretty much ingrained in everyone's memory as they prepare to travel. At this time of year, though, there's something else we need to remember before we head through security.
Dublin Airport has advised passengers not to gift wrap their Christmas presents if they are being carried as part of their hand luggage. Instead, people are being asked to consider bringing presents in an open gift bag.
We're asking passengers not to gift wrap Christmas presents if they are carrying them in hand luggage through security screening @DublinAirport this holiday season & to consider bringing presents in an open gift bag as an alternative.https://t.co/U90rhXLs01 #Christmastravel pic.twitter.com/BLYlB8ZWZr

Dublin Airport spokesperson, Siobhán O’Donnell said "Many passengers take a lot of time to carefully wrap Christmas gifts for family and friends overseas. We would ask them not to wrap these gifts, so they are not disappointed if they are requested to open them at the passenger security screening area.”
It was added that items like snow globes will not make it through either as "because of their liquid content they are not permitted through security screening."
Something to take note of before you head to the airport over the next couple of weeks.
