Pensacola Airport Launches 2nd Annual Holiday Gift Guide

Pensacola Airport Launches 2nd Annual Holiday Gift Guide

Airport Employees Make Suggestions for Traveling Santas

(November 23, 2021) Pensacola, Fla. — For the second year in a row, Santa’s elves at Pensacola International Airport are sharing their favorite gift ideas for holiday travelers. The PNS Holiday Gift Guide launches today, with team members from across the airport recommending locally-owned gifts to give, ship, or carry-on during the holiday season. 

The Gift Guide is an effort by the airport leaders and employees to support locally-owned businesses, and to highlight gift ideas for people visiting the area.

“Whether it’s the height of the beach season or the holiday season, the airport is the Gateway to the Gulf Coast. Thousands of passengers come through the airport each day, to visit their families here or to go see their family elsewhere. The Gift Guide is a great way for us to highlight all that Pensacola has to offer, from restaurants and retailers to services and experiences,” said Airport Director Matthew Coughlin

For the past month, PNS leaders have been collecting gift ideas from airport employees and support teams, including members of the TSA, baggage handlers, rental car companies, and airline employees. 

“Even though the airlines or rental car companies or concession companies may not be headquartered here, the people who are helping with your bags, your security screening, or your coffee do live here,” said Marketing Manger Lewis Garvin. “We know that we are the first and last thing people see when they visit or leave Pensacola, and we want to celebrate all that is great about the Gulf Coast, and support our local businesses at the same time.”

This year’s Gift Guide includes Glamping at Coldwater Gardens, Theatre Tickets to PLT, Coffee at Deluna Coffee, sugary goodness at Bubba’s Sweet Shop, and much more.

The PNS Holiday Gift Guide can be found on the airport’s website at, or on social media: @FlyPensacola.
