We’ve put together these train-themed ideas for spreading cheer and sending holiday wishes to friends and family near and far.

1. Amtrak Gift Cards
The benefits of train travel can be an invaluable gift. Amtrak gift cards offer great flexibility and can be redeemed for travel online, in the Amtrak app, by phone or at any staffed Amtrak station. There are no fees and they never expire. Pick one up at major retailers such as Costco or Target, or get one online. Digital gift cards have different design options, including one featuring the Pacific Surfliner and the iconic Southern California coastline. Learn More

2. Amtrak Store
For the rail enthusiast in your life, order some merchandise from the online Amtrak store. There are collectibles, clothing, toys, and much more to choose from. Our favorite is the heat changing mug that reveals a beautiful Pacific Surfliner image when a hot beverage is poured. View more items at store.amtrak.com.

3. Virtual Backgrounds
While connecting with friends and family this year, make a beautiful Pacific Surfliner photo the background of your video calls and add a unique touch to your stay-at-home celebration. Our Virtual Hangouts page has lots of great images to choose from. We also have video backgrounds that make it look like you’re onboard the train!

We're proud to play a part in sparking the joy of reconnecting with friends and family, especially during the holiday season. We wish you and yours safe and happy celebrations.
