TSA and gifts (link )
The TSA is warning people not to wrap Christmas gifts this season. If you do, they will probably unwrap them.
If the circumstances are suspicious, TSA can and likely will open those gifts.
Certain sporting items such as bats, bows and arrows and pool cues cannot be brought on board unless checked.
Pocket knives and other concealed weapons are also prohibited — regardless of whether they’re wrapped in a pretty red bow.
