Your Cart Is Empty!
It’s that time of year again when we have to embark on the tedious and somewhat mournful task of taking the Christmas decorations down. Our houses will once again become bare and bereft of glitter, baubles and all things magical. However it needn’t be as gloomy as it sounds, having the right packaging and storage for your beloved decorations could brighten up the chore just much as all those fairy lights and tinsel brightened up your house.
Being packaging experts here at Britwrap we thought we’d compile some top packaging and storage tips to help you with the task.
Firstly, we recommend clearing a bit of space for sorting your decorations so you can create orderly piles of baubles, lights, fragile items etc. We then suggest gathering some equipment to help you glide through the job stress free, here’s our list -
Gift Wrap - Gather all of your leftover tags, cellotape, bows, paper and cards together and store them in a separate packaging box or bag to your decorations - you never know when you may need them!
Wreaths - Use a spacious storage bag to store your wreath, this will help to preserve its shape. You may want to add light void fill paper to give some extra protection.
Battery Operated Decorations - It’s important to remove any batteries from your decorations when you put them into storage. Firstly it will prolong battery life and secondly batteries can leak especially when kept in cold climates i.e. in a garage. It would be a crime if your singing Santa and reindeer fell victim to a leaking battery.
Christmas Linen - Store Christmas linen such as blankets, pillows, table cloths etc in a breathable storage sack. One with a drawstring closure is ideal, as it will protect contents from dust and dirt.
Pictures, Ornaments, Candles etc - It’s best to use either bubble wrap or tissue wrap for these items and like the fragile Christmas tree decorations store them in a double walled cardboard box.
Finally, you may want to make a little list of all decorations you have stored and ones you have had to ditch because they haven’t survived the festive fun. Doing this will ensure no duplicate buys once Christmas 2017 comes around and you’ll know exactly what replacements you need to buy.
And that’s it you’re done, all thats left to do now is store it all somewhere cool and dry and start counting down the days till next Christmas…
