DEAR HELOISE: I read a hint about flying with wrapped gifts. I flew with a suitcase of birthday and other gifts for family. I began the wrapping at home, choosing and cutting the paper for each gift. I wrote a small description (e.g., “Katie’s cookbook,” ”Tommy’s shaving kit” ) inside the edge of each paper and wrote out the gift tags. I stacked the papers, rolled them up and put them, some bows and gift tags in a baggie with a roll of tape inside the suitcase.
