Most people rent a self-storage unit as a temporary space during a move, but it’s also ideal for holiday storage of all stripes. Storage units can help you clear space for relatives as well as give you additional storage space when things start piling up. At Absolute Storage, we can provide convenient storage solutions for many types of items from décor to dishes to  even gifts. 

If you have kids who can’t stop hunting for their presents, a storage unit gives you the perfect place to hide everything without worrying about your kids spoiling the surprise. To prevent your significant other or your kids from snooping around for Christmas gifts this year, consider planning ahead for next year’s gift-giving with an affordable storage unit from a facility in the Absolute Storage Management Network. These units provide a solution for a variety of different uses and needs. 

Reasons Self Storage Makes Gift Giving Easy

In order to avoid the stress of the holiday season, you will need a set of tools to make your life easier during this time. Storage units can be one such tool because of their versatility and the helpful features they offer. In addition to being the perfect spot to hide your gifts, storage units can also act as your gift-wrapping center and provide you with peace of mind through several top-of-the-line security features.

They Can Be Your Gift-Wrapping Station

There’s no reason to wait for your children to go to bed before you can wrap their presents. You don’t even have to prolong the wrapping for days after you’ve bought them. Once you have your presents, take them to your storage unit. Depending on the space available, you can set up a folding table and bring in all of your supplies such as tape, wrapping paper, bows, and ribbons.

After they’re wrapped, set the presents aside until you decide it’s time to pick them up and put them under the tree. If your gift is something larger that’s hard to wrap such as a new fancy exercise bike, you can stash it in a storage unit until it’s time to surprise the recipient!

They are the Perfect Hiding Spot

One of the hardest things to do every holiday season is keep your children, pets, or significant other from finding their gifts. If you have a temporary storage unit, you’ll never have to worry about them finding and opening their gifts early. If you buy them from a store, you can take them directly to your storage unit and drop them off before heading home. 

Getting gifts delivered? You can take them to the storage facility once they’re delivered to your house. You’ll know the presents are in a place where no one can find them when you rent a self-storage unit.

They Offer High-Quality Security Features

Maybe your traditional gift hiding spot is the trunk of your car or, if it’s a big enough item, an outdoor shed. While these may get the job done, they don’t always offer much in the way of protection for your gifts. Unlike these hiding spots, you don’t have anything to worry about when your presents are stored in a storage facility. 

Many locations have perimeter fencing, 24-hour video surveillance and other security measures to keep your presents safe away from home. All you have to do is put a security lock on the storage door  that is available for purchase at several Absolute Storage Managed facilities to enjoy peace of mind. Take advantage of these helpful security features and much more when you rent self-storage from an Absolute Storage Managed facility. 

Rent Temporary Storage for the Holidays From A Storage Facility

With a gift storage unit, you have everything covered for wrapping and storing your presents this holiday season. Treat your new storage unit as a temporary closet for your gifts, keeping them away from your children’s snooping. Not only does it make the perfect spot for wrapping your gifts, but it’ll also keep them safe and secured until the big day.
