Where do you hide your Christmas presents?

We locked everything up in our half-bath. It's a little inconvenient when my husband is in the shower and our girls need to use the potty. =) I hid my husband's gifts in some totes we keep out of season clothes in.

  • We hid all of our Santa gifts in our camper. All of the stocking stuffers are in my dirty clothes hamper, noone would ever look there. Everything else is wrapped and under our tree.

  • I have had great success hiding the presents in garbage bags in the one ever looks in garbage bags and since I am the only one who really organizes the garage or takes out the garbage it works for me.....

  • I dont hide my teenagers and dh's gifts. They know there isnt a santa so theres no reason to hide them. I do hide my 3 & 8 yr olds gifts. They are at my mil's house.

  • He, he, he...for smaller gifts...right under their, beds--or our shed for bigger things like the bikes they're getting this year! They each have queen sized beds in their rooms, and with the bed skirt, you'd be amazed at how much you can hide under there! They have a separate playroom so they are really only in their rooms for sleeping, homework or getting dressed--less opportunity to "accidentally" come across their presents.

  • Everything is in the garage. We have 6 boxes from out of towners so they were never unpacked. Then there's the 30 in suitcase my mom left in the playroom closet. Then there's the box of unwrapped presents in my closet up on the top shelf.

    Maybe my question should be where DON'T I hide the presents!

  • My gifts are in the laundry room, out of reach of my daughter. I attempted to put some under the tree to make it look more festive, but she started unwrapping them. Since I'm the only one who does laundry, no one even knows they are stashed in there.

  • We dont do gifts from Santa so the gifts are usually put out under the tree as soon as they are wrapped, but this year and 2.5 my son is a bit too curious so we have them in the basement. We'll put them out tomorrow.

  • mine are in the basement my kids are scared to go down there so thats where they get hid plus if they did go down there they are already wrapped so they wouldnt be able to see what they are :)
