Maybe an airport isn’t the ideal place to pick up a gift, but if you find yourself in a real pinch this holiday season, it might be the only place to grab something decent at the last minute, even as you’re about to take flight. Luckily, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport has a variety of items you could pass off as a thoughtful present. We stopped by its gift shop recently and found a handful of affordable, giftable things.

Black paper weights crafted from coal found in Pennsylvania are among the first displays that might catch a browser’s eye.

Priced between $8 and $65, they come in all shapes and sizes, from a penguin with a hockey stick and puck and United States Army and Navy emblems to bells and penholders.

Take your time and pick out one that best represents your friend’s or family member’s personality. If you’re giving someone back a piece of his own history in the process, all the better.

“Don’t question your wife’s judgment. Look who she married.”

“Life is too short to drink cheap wine.”

“You have two choices for dinner. Take it or leave it.”

Your brand of humor might appear on the slate refrigerator magnets by Capozzolo Brothers of Bangor, Pa., in the gift shop for $4.99.

Affordable and fun, these are a perfect little present or stocking stuffer.

Reuniting with friends and family for the holiday often calls for a toast.

Bring along a shot glass sporting a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton motif, be thankful for a safe flight and add your desired liquid refreshment. Glasses are Pennsylvania-themed or team loyal and are priced under $10.
