The Best Places to Hide Holiday Gifts This Year
It’s the ultimate game of hide and seek– keeping your newly purchased presents from the rest of your family. But with everyone home this year, where can you possibly keep them so no one finds them? Check out our ultimate guide to keep the surprise alive this holiday season.
1.) The basement
That unused basement that should be rented on nextstore makes a perfect spot for hiding gifts. Carefully tuck this year’s presents away on the shelves that contain hand-me downs and decorations for other holidays. Most families don’t go into the basement that often so your secret should be entirely safe. Nobody will suspect a thing or even be able to find anything in all your clutter.
2.) The attic
There is no place in my house that I avoided as much the attic. In the summer it was hot and in the winter cold and always full of spiders. If your attic is a bit friendlier or you’re up for a trip up the attic ladder, hiding the presents here could be perfect. It’s generally a large area that you can use to hide bigger boxes without raising suspicion. If you want to make sure nothing gets into the boxes (I’m looking at your spiders) consider wrapping the boxes in a thick plastic like this.
3.) A big suitcase
That big suitcase you aren’t using to travel this year is the perfect stealthy spot to hide small gifts. Simply take it off the shelf, unzip it and put your gifts inside. You can even use the fancy luggage lock to make sure nobody looks at their gifts early. Bonus points if you hide it in your trunk to keep it away from prying eyes.
