New Gift Shopping Options at the Airport

Do you think of going to the airport only when you’ve got a plane to catch or a passenger to pick up? If so, you may be missing out on a great opportunity to take advantage of items you can only find at airport gift shops. In fact, these days many well-to-do jetsetters are taking time to shop at the airport, based on the availability of deals on fine merchandise. Here’s what you need to know about gift shopping at a rather unlikely location.

Recent research by Generation Research has found that sales of items such as cosmetics, perfumes and luxury goods at airports across the globe have increased substantially (28.3 percent) in the past several years. And the numbers are only expected to rise in 2012 and beyond. This means that you are apt to find new retailers moving into your local airport soon.
