When I was a kid I used to love walking into a store and seeing all the holiday decorations. From the first scarecrow to the last ornament on the tree, there’s no feeling quite like being surrounded by the festivity of the holiday season.

As an adult, I have tried to recreate those feelings within my own home, but I quickly learned that I needed a practical way to store my seasonal items, since the reality is that they spend more time out of sight than on display.

Over the years I have tried countless organizing products for items such as Christmas lights, wreaths, ornaments and holiday dishes.  After much trial and error, I have finally found some great products that are both functional and reasonably priced.  So to save you hours of wasted time looking for the best holiday storage items, here are 3 Palau’s Picks that are a “must-have”:

1.  Snapware Ornament Storage

ornament storage Why I love it:  Like most Snapware products, you can stack and lock multiple boxes (which makes great use of vertical space). The clear design makes for easy identification and the inserts are adjustable to accommodate various sized ornaments. The case is made from plastic and the lid locks and seals, ensuring your keepsakes  are protected from dust, water, bugs, etc.

Available at various online retailers and big box stores.




2.  Homz Holiday Lighting Storage Box

Available at various online retailers and big box stores.





3.  Household Essentials Holiday Dinnerware Storage Sets

Don’t let holiday decorating stress you out. Arm yourself with some essential tools and you will be well on your way to an organized season.


Happy Organizing!
