The holiday season brings tons of cheer and time to relax with family and friends. But, it’s also an extremely busy time of year with family coming into town, entertaining, hosting meals, buying gifts, and decorating your house in a festive way.

We have all been frustrated when we go to decorate our tree or the exterior of our home and have to search through boxes and boxes of broken ornaments and burned out bulbs.

But, if you spend a little time post-holiday getting your supplies and decorations organized, you will be thankful next year! Get started with this blog on creative ways to organize your holiday stuff!

If you are looking for the perfect place to keep all those seasonal items that only get utilized once or twice a year, consider adding a Cook Portable Warehouse to your backyard.

After your holiday shopping spree it’s always a struggle to find safe places to hide those gifts you want to keep secret.  

Little curious eyes and ears are always looking for hints to where their presents might be hidden.  So, here’s some creative ideas to keep those surprises unspoiled until Christmas Day.Creative Ways to Hide Gifts this Christmas + Cook Portable Warehouses

Your Cook shed is the perfect place to store those gifts.  With our locking door handle, the kids can’t peek inside!

Plus, with the Lofted Barn option, you can keep gifts and holiday decorations all in the loft.  They'll stay organized and out of the way until you need them each year.

At Work 

Hiding gifts in your office might be best if your kids or spouse are particularly snoopy.

Lock those presents away in your desk drawer or filing cabinet.

In Discrete Boxes

If you have a baby in the house, hide them in old diaper boxes. The older kids probably will skip looking there.  

Or, if you’re trying to hide something from your husband, hide small items in your feminine hygiene boxes. He’ll probably want to avoid opening those up!

Wrap them Immediately

Even if you don’t have your tree up, you can still wrap them and hide them away in the closet.  If little fingers do find them they’re still left guessing.
