It’s getting closer to Christmas now and the question on everybody’s lips once they’ve finally nailed the Christmas shopping is…when the heck are we going to hide your Christmas presents???!
In the weeks running up to Christmas children far across the land will be rifling through every corner of the house in order to snuffle out those presents….ho ho ho Yule never find them….ho ho ho….yes we will!
Well actually, they probably will if these are the hiding places your using…so let’s make sure we have some good excuses up our sleeves for when they do! With that said, here are some suggestions of where to hide your Christmas presents this year plus there’s a lovely chance to win four personalised Letterpress Christmas Sacks from Harrow and Green below!
In wardrobes and cupboards
Unsurprisingly, a common spot to hide your Christmas presents tends to be wardrobes and cupboards. Whether it’s in the bedroom, the pantry or the utility room, stuffing presents and covering them up with our clothes is a no brainer for obvious reasons.
In attics and basements
But for some, cupboards just don’t cut it….and that’s where the attic comes in…probably because it’s a difficult to reach spot in the house, especially for children. A firm fave hiding spot of mine too – shhhh just don’t tell the little missy! Instead of going up, you can also try going down – because nobody wants to go refiling around a spooky basement now fo they?
At the relatives
But if you’re feeling particularly cunning with your mission to hide your Christmas presents you could also go even further afield by stashing your Christmas bounty over at a relative’s house, most likely at their poor unsuspecting grandparents…you lucky old things you!
And for those who really can’t be bothered to put much effort into hiding your Christmas presents (yes, I’m looking at YOU!), there’s the good old bedroom, more specifically under the bed. Because who would ever think to look there? Aherm…..
In suitcases and holdalls
The perfect decoy which are usually stuffed away somewhere inaccessible until holiday time (at least in my house!). Don’t forget to lock for extra hands-offness. Obviously if you’re going away for Christmas then that could be a tad problematic!
In the drawer of doom
Yes, we all have one – the drawer of oh my god what on earth is that crap anyway?! A drawer of doom could be your old eletronics drawer, or yes – even your underwear drawer which your children would surely never want to ever be caught rifling in.
In the washing basket
Under piles of dirty laundry – perfect! nobody will ever find them beause we all know that nobody can remember the last time they saw the bottom of the washing basket, or even if it has one.
In the shed
Even secret agents would be impressed with your hiding skills here. Because once it’s Winter time, nobody goes into the shed unless their life depends on it….unless they want to be faced with a load of shedded spider exoskeletons.
his one highly depends on where you work and how much space there is. But if you’re lucky you might just have a desk with one of those really big drawers which is currently empty. Or a rather handy storecupboard which could do the trick. Just don’t let your colleagues catch on.
So now that the not-so-secret is out, where are you tempted to hide your Christmas presents this year? Do share in a comment below.
