How to Use Public Storage in Las Vegas Around the Holidays

November 22, 2017

Public storage in Las Vegas can be useful all year round, but having a storage unit definitely comes in handy during the holiday season. Now that the holidays are right around the corner, it’s important to learn how to use a storage unit to your advantage during this time of the year.

Hide Gifts From “Santa”

Do your children still believe in Santa Claus? If so, all of their gifts must stay hidden until Christmas morning. But, this can difficult if you don’t have a good hiding spot at your house. If you’re worried about hiding your kids’ presents until Christmas morning, put them in a storage unit. Then, transport all of the gifts to your home a few days before Christmas so you can sneak them under the tree when the kids fall asleep on Christmas Eve.

Be sure to think about what type of items you will be putting in storage before renting a storage unit. Some gifts, such as electronics and books, will need to be stored in an air cooled unit. If you’re not sure what type of unit to get, ask someone at the storage unit facility for advice.

Wrapping Gifts

Use your storage unit as a wrapping station during the holiday season so you don’t have to find room for wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows in your home. Not only does this reduce the amount of clutter in your home, but it also ensures no one will sneak a peek at their gifts while you’re wrapping them. 

Creating a wrapping station is also perfect for people who take a great deal of pride in the way their gifts are wrapped. Now that you have so much room, you can store as many different bows, ribbons, and wrapping papers as you’d like!

Holiday Decorations

Keep all of your seasonal decorations in a storage unit before and after the holidays so you don’t take up valuable storage space within your home. Any holiday decoration that you use year after year can be kept in storage, including wreaths, ornaments, and Christmas lights. As long as you take the time to pack them neatly, they will stay in good condition until the next holiday season rolls around. Read our ultimate guide to storing holiday decorations.

Make Room For Guests

Do you have friends or family staying with you during the holidays? If so, you may need to temporarily move furniture or other belongings into a storage unit to make more room for your guests. For example, the guest room in your home may have slowly morphed into a home office over the years. Now that guests are on their way, move your desk and other personal belongings into a storage unit so your guests have more room and feel more comfortable.
