Enjoy seasonal offerings and more, compliments of PHL Food & Shops

PHILADELPHIA — Dec. 8, 2021 — The holiday season is in full swing, and PHL Food & Shops at the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is celebrating with festive promotions and a very special gift with purchase.

Come to the airport early, pass through security and shop for your loved ones. With everything from fashion and beauty to tech and travel necessities, travelers at PHL can find something for everyone on their lists this holiday season. PHL Food & Shops has more than 120 eateries and retailers currently operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to finding the perfect gift for friends and family members, passengers can take advantage of complimentary gift wrapping of all purchases made at PHL, available through Friday, Dec. 24, in the B/C Connector. And if a present gets unwrapped at the security checkpoint, travelers may take the gifts to the B/C Connector with their TSA-assigned voucher and have them rewrapped in no time.

Also, from now through Friday, Dec. 24, PHL Food & Shops is offering a free gift with purchase, a handmade Philadelphia-themed ornament, which travelers can redeem at PHL Marketplace or Heritage Books in the B/C Connector with same-day receipts totaling $100 or more from PHL airport retailers. These ornaments are designed by a local artist, Tonya Mason of MasonMade, who transforms locally foraged sycamore wood into stunning home goods. (Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/masonmade25/)

"As we get back to our favorite traditions with friends and family this year, our shops and restaurants are providing passengers with a familiar feeling of the holiday spirit in the form of special gifts and delicious treats while they travel," said Mel Hannah, Vice President and General Manager of MarketPlace PHL.

If you are looking to score more great deals and freebies while you do your holiday shopping, Vera Bradley, located in the D/E connector, is offering a 30% holiday discount on purchases made until Friday, Dec. 31. Kiehl’s in Terminal F is offering customers complimentary holiday gifts with purchase, including a holiday canvas bag and a variety of deluxe-size products — perfect for stocking stuffers or to treat yourself this holiday season!
