Store Christmas Presents To Keep Them Secret And Safe

store christmas presents

What makes Christmas such a magical time? Maybe we’d all answer this differently. But one thing we can agree on is that Christmas is so much more than the big day itself. The run-up to Christmas is full of excitement and mystery.

But how can you keep your festive surprises safe from curious creatures?

In this post, we share our top tips on how to store Christmas presents to keep them secret and safe.


Those Who Must Not Be Named

Curious children (or spouses!) who ‘stumble-across’ a stash of pre-wrapped Christmas gifts will be forgiven for thinking they’ve hit the jackpot. But wait – whose is whose?!

Holding off on labelling your gifts until Christmas Eve will help to make sure your surprises are kept safe ‘til the big day. But don’t forget to use a secret code to avoid falling victim to your own system. Wrap each person’s gift in a different paper, mark with a symbol, or number them and keep a note somewhere safe.


Leave The Wrapping To The Professionals

Do you zoom by the gift wrapping table in your local shopping centre every year? Any guilt you experience at the thought of not wrapping your own gifts can be quickly absolved by the knowledge that you’ll be helping to keep surprises a secret! Wrapping gifts at home is a risky business. Using a gift wrapping service will help keep your gifts safe from prying eyes and they’re usually provided in aid of local charities, too.


Never Leave Your Presents Home Alone

Even the sharpest of Scrooges won’t be able to spoil the big reveal if there aren’t any gifts to be discovered. Consider investing in a household and personal self storage unit for the holiday season. You can use it to store gifts as you buy them (or as they arrive) away from prying eyes and to keep pricey presents safe. And after Christmas, you can ship the tree, decorations and old toys off to your self storage unit, for safekeeping ‘til next year!
