People flying home for Christmas are being asked to leave the wrapping paper off gifts until they've made it home for Christmas.

Anyone planning to carry presents in hand luggage is being warned security officers might ask them to unwrap them.

The advice is to use gift bags and make sure cosmetics sets are carried in checked luggage so they don't have to be opened.

Siobhán O'Donnell from the Dublin Airport Authority says it's a very busy time of year -- and they need to avoid delays at security.

"There's a lot of nice fancy wrapping paper and ribbons and bows and people take a lot of time to do that, so please don't wrap your gifts if you're carrying them in hand luggage," she said,

"Please don't wrap your gifts if you're carrying them in hand luggage through the security screening area -- our colleagues are trying to get everyone through as smoothly as possible and avoid delays.
