Stuff as many gifts as you can inside a suitcase.

Duffel bags and laptop bags work as well.

Just make sure the recipient won’t use any of the bags before Christmas.

You know how hard it is to get your child to take out the rubbish?

Well, they’re unlikely to snoop for Christmas gifts in the garbage.

Get a garbage can (preferably a new, clean one) and keep the gifts in there.

4. The Clothes Hamper

Stick those Christmas gifts in the bottom of a laundry hamper and cover them with (slightly) dirty clothes.

Just remember to not dump out the whole hamper in the washing machine!

5. With Pots and Pans

If you have some smaller gifts to hide, try putting them in various pots and pans with lids.

But just make sure no one sees your gift hiding spot when you go to get that pot out to make soup.

6. In Your Socks

Socks are the perfect gift hiding spot for smaller items.

And think stocking stuffers such as pocket tools, candy and jewellery.

Chances are your attic is a place your kids can’t get to easily.

So place gifts in a covered bin or a plastic bag so they don’t get dusty.

If your kids or another family member are extremely nosy and bad about snooping, take the Christmas gifts to a friend’s home.

Just keep a list of everything you’ve sent so nothing is forgotten when it’s time to retrieve the gifts.

This gift hiding spot will never be discovered by wandering eyes.

If your kids are young and confined to the back seat, consider keeping some gifts in your car.

Small gifts can be hidden in the glove compartment while bigger gifts can be stored in the trunk.
