I have a giant laundry bag per person and they live in my wardrobe. Many years I misplace stuff so trying to keep it together!

Could you hook it with something? Broom handle?

In a big sports direct bag in the wardrobe. Fortunately no one in this house tries to sneak a look at presents. My friends son seeks his out every year then cries because he has no surprises. Hopefully one day he'll make the connection!

Attic mainly but also have a lockable linen cupboard that I use.

A lockable linen closet? That makes my mind run away with me!

My parents used to do it, and I have done it. At the elderly neighbour's house, next door.

In the shed, dcs are scared of spiders and hate the shed so I know they won't go in there.

All in my wardrobe - apart from the scooter which arrived today & is currently wedged between 2 vacuum bags of old baby clothes with a duvet over it while I find somewhere to hide it. Will wrap tomorrow night though

Loft. And I've hidden the opener thing

I also use holiday suitcases! They live in my wardrobe all year long but get locked when full of gifts!

I have a huge walk in cupboard right next to where I put the tree, very convenient.

I've had the flu for two weeks and haven't bought any yet.

We have a built in wardrobe in our room (which someone at some point converted into a shower (why??) we never use it as a shower so we store presents in there. Some are in my wardrobe too and my presents from dp have been carefully hidden under a blanket in the corner of our bedroom (I haven't looked he told me they were there).

If we didn't have the wardrobe-come shower I'd probably hide them at the bottom of my wardrobe and under the bed.

I bought a new bed in the summer. It's an ottoman style and everything is under there...the dc don't know it lifts up fwink

JenLindleyShitMom Fri 16-Dec-16 14:45:53

That's classified. I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. wink

laundry bag on top of my wardrobe

OvO Why does your linen cupboard need to be locked? Can your cat open door handles? grin

Another ottoman bed here! Before that I hid them at my brother's house. In our old house they went in the loft.

Inside the base of the divan bed - pull a drawer out and stuff presents in (apart from the huge box of lego ninjago which is bagged up in under stair cupboard). I don't think the kids realise the drawers can come out fully, I have been careful to avoid alerting them to this fact in order to preserve my hiding place!

In the spare room under a big sheet. To be fair though, DD(4) believes in Santa and it wouldn't even occur to her that there might be presents under there.

Will have to be a bit more creative as she gets older.

in amazon pantry boxes in my bedroom hidden underneath old curtains fgrin

used to hide them in suitcases on top of my kids wardobes

Nowadays in the wardrobe or behind the easy chair in the bedroom with a blanket thrown over them and a veto against anyone trying to peek.

We have an industrial photocopier for work in our study and once hid a new pet goldfish in the paper storage compartment at the bottom for a few nights until Xmas day. He was allowed out during the day when the kids were at school and we never operated the photocopier when he was in there grin

I hide mine in plain sight. We always have various empty boxes lying around our room from online shopping deliveries, so I just put presents in them. I don't know if the dc snoop but I doubt they'd bother to look in empty looking boxes sitting in the middle of our bedroom floor.
