Storage Tips

4 Awesome Places to Hide Christmas Gifts

Hide them in a scary basement.

If your home has a basement, it’s the perfect spot to keep presents hidden away until Christmas Day. Furnished basements aren’t going to deter snooping kids from finding their presents, so look for a spot where they may not want to go, such as the area around a furnace or the washer and dryer. The more barren it is, the scarier it will be for your children.

Tuck them away in the attic.

If you have younger children, they probably can’t get into the attic, especially if they aren’t able to reach the string for bringing down the ladder. If they’re older, you can still hide their presents in attic areas where they may not think to look, such as dusty corners between the rafters. Just make sure not to hide them in unused dresser drawers where they’re likely to look first.

Borrow a friend’s closet for awhile.

Your children can’t find their presents if they’re hiding in a friend’s house across town. Ask your friends if you can use their closets in which to hide your kids’ presents. It’ll only be for a month, and your children will never be the wiser.

Don’t forget about storage units.

A storage unit is always a great option for hiding Christmas presents in Congers, NY, and across the country. It’s affordable, located nearby and comes in different sizes to hide gifts both big and small. If you really want to keep your children’s gifts a surprise, a storage unit is the ideal choice.
