The Deal: Holiday Gifts and Ideas Abound


The holidays are here and RDU has everything you need to accomplish your holiday shopping while at the airport. You’ll likely also find some ways to treat yourself as you travel this month.

Holiday Gift Guide

RDUscreens-giftsvWe’ve taken the guessing out of giving. Our comprehensive Holiday Gift Guide features a wealth of ideas for all the people in your life. Plus, find N.C. gift ideas and great stocking stuffers for everyone on your list.

In the guide, view a slideshow of items by category and see lists of what you can find in each of our shops.

Where to find it:

Wrap It. Ship It. Stamp It.

It’s true that you shouldn’t wrap your gifts before heading through the security checkpoint.  But did you know that you can buy wrapping paper, gift bags, cards and tape on the concourse?  You’ll also find stamps. And did you know that you can purchase items at RDU and have them shipped so you won’t have to carry them aboard your flight.
