As December 25th draws closer and closer, children from all over anticipate the arrival of Santa Claus and his big red bag full of toys. Children also know that gifts from their parents are coming, and that draws their curiosity—not only as to what gifts they’re getting, but where those gifts are hidden!
They wait till you’re not around so they can snoop in the closet, peak under the bed, or tip-toe in the attic. They’ll be shocked to find nothing, because you, the smart parent, anticipated their move to spoil their own surprise….You went ahead and hid their holiday gifts in your secure storage unit at STORBOX!
Conveniently located and easily accessible, your unit was able to provide the necessary space to hide the doll house, remote-controlled car, and adjustable basketball hoop. Not only does this keep the surprise alive, but it also keeps your home free of extra clutter.
Here are three additional helpful hints for storing gifts this holiday season:
- Hold off wrapping big gifts: Storing your gifts is a cinch, but transporting larger items can be a little risky if they’ve been pre-wrapped. To avoid damage to wrapping paper, it’s best to hold off covering that adjustable basketball hoop until you’re home on Christmas Eve (and at a safe distance from the kids).
- Keep them covered: Though your gifts are in good hands and out of reach of the children, taking that extra precaution to keep those gifts safe never hurts. So use something like a blanket or a tarp—not only will this hide them, but it also keep your gifts from getting dusty.
- Don’t forget to label: A lot can happen when trying to move presents back and forth, and if the gifts have already been wrapped without labels, not knowing whose gift is whose can cause a scene Christmas morning. Be sure to label those gifts!
