Hiding Christmas Presents? We Know The BEST Secret Hiding Places

|

Kids are curious, and when it comes to Christmas presents, they can be downright obsessed. And it’s not just kids. There are some grown-ups that just can’t wait until December 25th to find out what Santa has brought them.

If you’re running out of hiding places, we’ve got a few ideas for you … along with a secret hiding place you may not know about.

1. Hide Christmas presents indoors

Hiding smaller Christmas presents is pretty easy, of course. Tuck them inside something larger so they get ‘lost’ when curious eyes come looking. Small things fit nicely inside a pocket of a suitcase or between a stack of towels and bedsheets.

Every room has hidden holes to stash your Christmas surprises. You can tape things to a wall inside the closet, under a shelf or a drawer. Hide them in your socks or underwear drawer. If your basement or attic is unfinished, there are probably lots of secret spots between the rafters.

Sometimes the most obvious places are the best. Who would think of looking for their Christmas gift in their OWN room? Get creative! There are tons of secret hiding places around your home.

2. Hide Christmas presents outside

Larger gifts can present more of a challenge inside your house. So take them outside. Plus, it’s less likely that younger children will hunt for presents outdoors in the cold weather. Tuck them away in the trunk of your car or hide them amongst your summer patio furniture.

If you have storage bins in the garage or garden shed, switch things up inside them. Stash your presents in the bins and restack them so the gift bins are at the bottom. Write misleading labels on the bins, like ‘Grandma’s china’ or ‘Dad’s hockey gear’.

3. Hide Christmas presents in Santa’s Secret Storage

If your family has scoped out all your secret hiding spots, then consider taking your gift sack to Santa’s Secret Storage locker. That’s right … it’s a real thing!
