Christmas lights are a joy to behold but a pain to store.  Unfortunately, poorly stored lights turn into tangled strings and broken bulbs, causing decorating delays and frustration. Not to mention the added expense of replacing damaged lights.

Holiday Wreath Storage Solutions

A festive wreath on the front door is one of the simplest ways to decorate for the holidays. But when the season’s over, storing that wreath isn’t quite so simple.  Easy to crush, bulky, awkwardly shaped…it can be a challenge to keep a wreath safely tucked away without it taking up a lot of space.

Luckily there are now several types of wreath keepers designed to address those issues. So you won’t have to spend a lot of time “re-fluffing” your wreath next Christmas, here are three space-efficient holiday wreath storage solutions:

  • The Wreath Storage Bag with Direct Suspend Handle offers crush-proof storage in a space-saving design. It featuresWreath Storage Bag with Direct Suspend Handle Image a “direct suspend” handle with an interior clip that connects the outer handle of the bag with the frame of your wreath, so when you hang the bag, the wreath floats inside. This preserves the wreath’s shape by keeping it from being compressed against the bottom of the bag.  The zippered case is large enough to accommodate up to 36-inch-diameter wreaths, and has a padded carrying handle for easy transport.
  • For even larger wreaths, the Christmas Wreath Storage Bag is available in three sizes: 36, 48 and 60 inches.  It comes nestled inside a round zippered bag with a handle, which attaches inside the wreath keeper itself to provide extra storage space for Christmas lights and other decorations.
  • For smaller wreaths (24 or 30 inches in diameter), the Wreath Storage Container is a good choice.  Designed to stand upright, it’s made of heavy-duty plastic; one side is completely transparent so you can see your stored wreath. Six latches around the sides keep the container securely closed, and a large handle at the top makes it easy to carry.

Plastic Storage Container - Christmas Bows Image

Although gift-giving is associated with the holidays, luckily this delightful custom isn’t limited to one special season. There are always birthdays, weddings, graduations and other present-worthy occasions to celebrate…and these events create a year-round need for gift wrap.

Of course it takes more than mere wrapping paper to do the job properly. There’s also tissue, ribbons, bows, sparkly confetti, shredded filler and tiny gift cards. Such delicate items are awkward to store safely–as is gift wrap itself, whether rolled or flat–so it’s easy for them to create clutter.

If you don’t have an ideal space for storing and using gift-wrap supplies, there are several types of gift wrap organizers that can help make the most of your “present workplace.”    These range from simple plastic containers sized to hold rolls of wrap, to hanging devices with multiple compartments sized for all types of gift-giving gear.Gift Wrap Organizer Image

A popular alternative to gift wrap is gift bags, which now come in a seemingly infinite range of sizes, shapes, patterns and materials.  The Gift Bag Organizer is designed to keep them tidy, undamaged and easy to access–it features three divided sections so you can arrange the bags by size, plus separate compartments for storing tissue paper and scissors, ribbons or cards. For the true gift-bag junkie, the Hanging Gift Bag Organizer holds up to 150 gift bags.
