If you are going on a plane, you will need to follow the TSA's luggage rules.
Liquids need to be in bottles no larger than three ounces, and they must be in a plastic bag. However, they don't need to be marked. You can pick up plastic bottles for shampoo and other toiletries at any store that carries personal care products. Snowglobes are included in this ban.
Batteries cannot go into checked luggage. A few battery types will burn continuously unless an extinguishing agent can be applied to them directly, which is all but impossible in a plane's cargo hold.
Regulations vary, but most airlines limit carry-ons to a total size (width + height + depth) of 45"; the average "carry-on" bag measures 22" x 14" x 9". However, some commuter jets won't have that much room in the overhead compartment.
Weight for both carry-on and checked luggage is 40 lbs. If you're worry your bag is over the limit, you can weigh it with a cheap fishing scale.
When you get in the security line, you will need to remove any electronics equipment from your bag and have it scanned separately. It helps if you put all your small electronics in a plastic bag at the top of your luggage for quick removal.
