Gift ideas and gift wrapping  all at the airport!

Wrapped gifts may need to be opened by security in order to examine for safety, so consider dropping by the two gift wrapping stations after you pass through security.
From 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers from the USO Northwest will be inside of security checkpoints #2 and #3. You may contribute what you will for this service.
You also can wait to buy your gifts at the airport and then get them wrapped here! Stores such as Beecher's Handmade Cheese, Fireworks, Made in Washington, Seattle Chocolates, Dilettante Mocha Cafe and Discover Puget Sound carry local, Northwest specialties. There are many other shops carrying unique gifts sure to delight! Check out all the stores.
