Smart storage of Christmas presents

It is estimated that each of us will spend around NOK 11–12,000 on Christmas shopping this year, and a large proportion of this goes to Christmas presents. If you have wrapped this year's Christmas presents, you may be sitting with a mountain of presents in your living room.

Whether you want to free up space or just want to keep the gifts away from curious children, there are smart storage solutions that can help.

How should Christmas presents be stored?

Some people buy Christmas presents long before Christmas, which increases the need for convenient storage. But even if you buy the gifts as late as November or December, it is important to store them properly.

What is beneficial for storing Christmas presents naturally depends on the type of presents in question. For example, if you have bought edible Christmas presents, it may be necessary to keep them cool and so that pets cannot get hold of the contents.

For the vast majority of other Christmas gifts, you will need to follow some fairly general tips. Let's take a closer look at these.


Many Christmas presents can be sensitive to large temperature fluctuations, and this particularly applies to electronic products. For example, if you have bought a tablet, mobile phone, high-pressure washer, TV or similar, it is best to store these in a temperate room.

A good rule of thumb is to store the gifts at room temperature, as the vast majority of products and materials are made to withstand this.


Something else you should think about when storing Christmas presents is the humidity level in the storage room. If, for example, you store the gifts in a storage room, cellar or in an attic, you can count on the humidity level in the air being high.

The problem with humidity - preferably combined with low temperatures - is that it provides a breeding ground for mold and other fungi. Shoes, clothes and other textiles are, for example, exposed to soil impact, which is visible in the form of black spots.

Mold can not only cause embarrassing stains that are difficult to get rid of. It can also produce an unpleasant smell on the affected items. Under optimal conditions, mold can cause major damage to Christmas presents within a short time.

Air circulation

Good air circulation is often the key to good and smart storage of Christmas presents. If the presents are stored in a room with ventilation, you reduce the chance of the humidity becoming so high that mold develops.

If you live in a home with good ventilation, it may therefore be worthwhile to store Christmas presents in a ventilated room (rather than in a cellar or storage room).

Smart storage of Christmas presents when you are short on space

Are you struggling with a lack of storage space? Or are the children a little too curious about what is hidden behind the wrapping paper? If for various reasons you do not want to store all your Christmas presents at home, there are smart storage solutions that can help.

By renting a mini warehouse, you can have space for all your Christmas gifts outside of the home. That way, you can free up a lot of space, and at the same time know that the gifts are in a safe place.

Do you want to give Christmas gifts to someone who needs them?

This year, many people are struggling financially due to the high costs of food, electricity and mortgages. Fortunately, there are also many people who enjoy giving, and in that case it can be very practical to have the Christmas gifts in a mini warehouse that can be unlocked from a distance.

That way, you can easily unlock the mini warehouse if someone wants to receive a Christmas present, and that person does not have to show up in person. This may lower the threshold for accepting help - something many are reluctant to do.
