How to protect your Christmas decorations
Delicate decorations, such as baubles, or chritmas lights can cost a lot. So it makes sense
to keep them safe, especially those tree decorations that have
been made by the children. Here are some great ways to keep the
family Christmas heirlooms safe for generations to come...
Our Decorations Storage Boxes are sturdy containers in clear
plastic. They are fantastic plastic storage boxes, perfect for the holiday season. so it's easy to see what they contain. The insert trays
are made of cardboard, which is so much more forgiving when

24-Litre Medium Box stores up to 45 baubles, while our
45-Litre Large Box stores up to 76 baubles.
Plus, we have more options with our 15 bauble Fold flat Cardboard Box or our 48- or 72- Bauble Storage Bags.
Top Tip: Add labels to your storage so
it's easy to identify what's inside and what should go back in
afterwards. Go one better: label your lights and garlands for
where they go around your home, so you don't have to remember and
re-measure everything next year.
We know that not all
baubles are created equal. Some are tiny and some are not baubles
at all... they can be crystals and candy canes, birds and
butterflies, reindeer and rocking horses , hearts and holly,
stars and Santas, stockings and snowflakes. But here's one size
storage that fits them all...
Our Set of Dividers for drawer or storage boxes
are like double-sided combs: so they can slot together or be cut
to suit any size baubles. They could work a treat with low-level
underbed storage too. And for only £7, even Santa would save
