Hopefully, this post will give you some inspiration on where to hide your Christmas presents! Please make sure to avoid your shed or car boot as you may not be covered for insurance purposes.

My ultimate place to hide your Christmas is… in a suitcase! No-one would think to look there, I don’t think anyway, and it makes great use of storage you already have in your home going unused.

We have two suitcases so one holds Christmas presents, inside the larger one, and then the larger one has some swimming items around the edges. Things such as floats and rubber rings.

Here are the places to hide your Christmas presents from other bloggers and a few more tips from me too:

Inside the wardrobe

Secrets hidden area at the back of the wardrobe!

In a big box on top of the children’s wardrobes

In a neighbour’s house

At grandparent’s house

Right at the top of some fitted cupboards, and in a hamper stuck on top of another cupboard

Under the bed

Box in the loft

In a locked office drawer

In your garage

In a trailer in the garage

In a box in the bedroom in full view of everyone!


A laundry basket or the tumble drier

In the shop until Christmas Eve

A secret drawer filled with items bought throughout the year

I definitely will apply some of those ideas, I live in a small apartment and I always have problems to hide the presents, normally I leave them in the car but since it is in street everynight I am a bit scare.


Sunday 19th of November 2017

Oh yes I would be scared to do that too!

Don’t know why I’ve never thought of suitcases! Great idea!
