Re: Where are you hiding your kids' gifts?

I used to have 2 walk in closets in the MB of my old house and I would put them in either one (one was mine, one was XH's). The kids never went through the stuff even though they knew it was in there. Heck, I have bought presents at target with them with me and they didn't notice. Right now, they are all wrapped and under the tree and the only person really asking whose is whose is DH, LOL. (I either wrap each person's in different paper, or I write names on the bottom of the paper, no tags)

Re: Where are you hiding your kids' gifts?

Wrapped under the tree would definitely not work. My 11 month old crawls everywhere and loves to rip up any paper she finds ha. I wrapped 7 gifts today and pushed them way back in the closet beneath our stairs and then moved things in front of them. Banged my head a few times in the process.

High up on a shelf in the garage they can't reach in a black garbage bag. When we lived at our condo in the storage room that was closed off from the rest of the garage. The garage wasn't attached to the condo then.

Black garbage bag is a great idea!

Re: Where are you hiding your kids' gifts?

I used to stash presents all over the house. Stuffed in bags and hidden in the back of closets, etc.. Then I would forget to get some stuff when I put presents out. I wouldn't realize it until I would find a gift several months later. oops! Now everything goes in big black bags in the unfinished basement. The kids are almost never down there.

We have a closet in the basement family room. My kids are too young to snoop though. It is just really big and can store everything
