1 Mis-label storage bins

The most likely places for hiding presents are in infrequently used rooms like the attic, basement, garage, or spare bedroom. But to make sure your gifts in these rooms are snoop proof, have them blend into the room by placing in a plastic storage bin and adding misleading label. A kid might take a peek in the attic, but is unlikely to open a box marked “Mom’s Summer Clothes.”

2-Take to the Office

If you have a secure place at work, take the gifts to the office! Or better yet, save a step and have them delivered there. This works best for small gifts that you can hide in a locking desk drawer or file cabinet.

3-Re-purpose the Tree Box

Do you use an artificial tree for Christmas? If so, this is a great place to store gifts, and it saves space. Tree boxes are usually large, can hold a lot of presents all in one space, and are an unlikely snooping spot for your curious kids.

4-Use Delivery Boxes for Double Duty

Online shopping is a great way to avoid the crowds at the stores and the boxes that come to your doorstep can serve as an additional hiding spot. Wrap your gifts when they arrive, then place them in the delivery box they came in. Make sure to tape them back up as an additional deterrent. Inquisitive kids may be wonder what’s in those boxes, but probably won’t go so far as to rip the tape off to see what’s inside.

5-Call Grandma and Grandpa

If your parents or in-laws haven’t decided to downsize and are local, they probably have lots of extra storage space for hiding gifts. If grandparents aren’t able to help, ask a neighbor. An entirely separate house is an ideal place for hiding larger items like bikes, dollhouses,and over-sized stuffed animals.
