Christmas presents under a tree
According to a recent survey, Americans are expected to spend more on gifts in 2018 than they did in 2017. With so many big shopping days like Cyber Monday and Black Friday, this should come at no surprise. With all of the work and money you put into Christmas, isn’t it important the gifts are a surprise? When you store with ezStorage, they can be. A storage unit rental allows you to keep presents out-of-sight until the big day comes.

Need more convincing? We have the top 5 reasons to hide your Christmas presents in a storage unit.

Ideas for Hiding Christmas Presents: Why a Storage Unit is the Answer

  • Reason # 1: Keep the Christmas magic
    A storage unit rental can help keep the Christmas magic. Do you have Christmas present sleuths in your family? Whether it’s your spouse looking to see if you got the items they asked for, or your kids wanting their Christmas gifts early, a storage unit rental allows you to store items in a secure spot outside of the house.
  • Reason # 2: Protect the presents from physical damage
    As your Christmas stash grows, your hiding spot can get more and more crowded. You spend time buying the perfect Christmas present and wrapping it in paper and bows, only to have it flattened by other large items. When you rent a storage unit, you’re able to get all of the storage space you need.
  • Reason # 3: Keep the items in a safe environment
    When you’re crunched for storage space to store presents, you may start looking to store items in your basement or garage. Unfortunately, storing sensitive items like electronics, leather or wooden items or any small appliances in your garage or basement can lead to them being exposed to dangerous fluctuations in temperature. Additionally, if the items are already wrapped, it’s possible for the wrapping paper design to transfer over to the present. Instead of storing your expensive presents in a location where they may get damaged, choose a climate controlled storage unit rental.
  • Reason # 4: Close to your home
    Let’s be honest here, in the heart of the holiday season, do you have time to drive far to collect your holiday gifts? When you rent a storage unit with ezStorage, you don’t have to. ezStorage has storage facilities all throughout Maryland and Virginia, in Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC and Columbia, MD.
  • Reason # 5: Perfect for after-Christmas storage
    If you’re like the average American, you enjoy decorating your home with holiday decorations. But what do you do with the twinkling lights, fake Christmas tree, holiday yard inflatables and more once the season is over? Well, after the Christmas gifts have been delivered and the holiday season is over, consider storing your decorations in your storage unit. This will keep bulky holiday items out of your home until you need them again.
