Ever wished that you could give to your mother, brother or BFF the journey of your life with this holiday, but can’t afford to stray outside of your already strained shopping budget? That can now.

JetBlue is making travel arrangements, gifts, dreams come true with a new board game called Get Packing!, that comes with some nice cards, a dice, a rule book and a certificate for a return flight. And the game, with the certificate included, costs only $20.

“The holidays are all about celebrating traditions and creating new memories. But we know that even the happiest families can get caught up in the excitement of the holidays,” said JetBlue’s Manager of Advertising and Content Heather Berko in a statement. “With this in mind, we “Get Packing!” to save you from awkward moments by literally there is a real JetBlue flight certificate.”

JetBlue was previously only going to sell 200 of these magical games in one game per customer, making them the most coveted holiday gift since Tickle Me Elmo. The games first went on sale on Amazon at 12 a.m. EST December 12, but they unexpectedly sold out faster than most people could click “buy.”

This year give the gift of leaving. Buy #GetPacking, the only board game that gets you out of awkward moments of the holidays with a certificate for a flight on JetBlue. Get it on amazon.com/getpacking! #LinkInBio

Due to their popularity, JetBlue will be offering the game for sale again December 18 at 3 pm EST.

If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on the limited edition of the game, you (or whoever you gift) book a return flight to a JetBlue destination (without price restrictions) between 1 January and 31 December 2018.

JetBlue recommends booking a domestic holiday to hot spots, such as Charleston or New Orleans with your holiday gift, or go international of Costa Rica, Barbados or Lima.

Of course, the flights are subject to availability, including blackout dates on major holidays, and the government taxes and fees do apply. All in all, though, perhaps we have to hand it to JetBlue for coming up with the largest, most affordable holiday gift of 2017.
