According to tradition 5th January is the day (or night) when you should take down your Christmas decorations. If you haven’t done it by this time you’re supposed to leave them up for the rest of the year!
To keep your decorations in pristine condition for next year you’ll want to pack them away with care. Of course, you can use any kind of storage container for this purpose, including the original packaging. But you can buy bauble boxes, bags for storing gift wrap and large bags for storing artificial Christmas trees.
Gift Wrap Storage Bag – rolls of gift wrap are always awkward to store. Which is where this storage bag comes in useful, not just for Christmas but for birthdays and other occasions too. Made from strong woven material with mesh storage pockets for gift tags and sticky tape. Measures: 76 x 13 x 25 cm. Less than £10 from amazon.co.uk
Bosmere Christmas Tree Bag – if you’re storing an artificial tree in the loft or garage you may prefer one of these zip up bags to using the original box. You’ll see a few variations of this style of bag but they are all much of a muchness. It’s hard to say what size of tree this bag will hold because their construction differs – some come in 2 parts, some in 3 parts and so on. But, as a rough guide, most standard trees are 6′ – 7′ and split into 3 pieces and this bag will be ideal. Priced at £12.99 from amazon.co.uk
