+2 for a lighter.
I remember reading that 1 lighter is permitted.
but I once had a pack of 3 lighters in carry-on and was fine.

I appreciate everyone's input, but it seems like this a case by case basis for international travel.

why wouldn't you just take a chance, and put it in your check in? In the worst case, they confiscate em... Unless they're so expensive

Thanks so much. I think you are probably correct. I am looking to avoid her being disappointed if she can't bring back the gift my wife asked her to get, but you can only do your hishtadlus.

Maybe tell her to find a nice box, and keep the box and the matches separately, and if the matches are confiscated c"v pyou could buy new ones local and put them in the original box...

Well, wouldn't it be sweet if the husband has a 'whole story' to share with his wife how he sacrificed bringing her home a special gift and it was sadly taken away...

I think you are better off in a carryon then checking it in. I have flown many times with a lighter and no problem. On the other hand, TSA checks check-in bags a lot.

This is my daughter who is bringing my wife the gift.
