Where do you hide the gifts?

We hide them in the closet, under the bed, or in a storage tote in the attic space upstairs.

  • I have a blanket in my closet that is piled on the floor yr round. I move it every few months so it looks different. I just stick the presents under that, and the kids never realize (yet!) b/c I move it anyway. It's the only place I can hide it, b/c they will get up in the middle of the night, sneak in my room, and use a flashlight to look under the bed! They're only 7 & 5, but I swear, they're better than most thieves! lol

  • We usually hide them in the closet, but I hate my closet - way too small. We have an attic, but it's just for the air conditioner unit thingy, but I had my hubby hide one of our sons presents up there. The rest are in a giant antique trunk in my bedroom.

  • I am hiding the girls presents in a storage room in the basement, they are afraid to go in there because of spiders and we are hiding my son's main present (go cart) in my neighbor's shed.

  • In the attic, tops of closets, garage closets, the shed in the back yard. Anywhere that I KNOW the kids can't get to or won't look.
