“Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I thought it would be a good idea to dedicate this week’s travel tips to Valentine’s Day related items. Here are some common items we see around this time of year.”

Bringing perfume or cologne for your special someone? Make sure the bottles are the correct size.

“Regular and cream/liquid filled chocolates are good to go,” TSA assures travelers.

“Bottles 3.4 ounces and smaller are permitted in your carry-on bag as long as they are placed in the baggie per the 3-1-1 liquid guidelines,” it continues. “Larger bottles may be packed in your checked baggage.”

As for flowers? Acceptable, but don’t try to bring them through with water.

“We suggest wrapping the stems in damp paper towels and plastic wrap or foil to keep them hydrated while you travel,” TSA advises.

Don’t wrap your gifts before you depart, as TSA reserves the right to unwrap it if it requires “extra screening.”

Ah, the season of love brings out the best in people, doesn’t it? Seriously, just drive if you’ve got somewhere to be February 14th.
