Keep your holiday decor organized and safe with these storage recommendations
Putting up Christmas decorations is a tradition in many homes, but we believe they should be as easy to store as they are to admire. Unfortunately for many of us, this is not the case. If you’re looking to upgrade your existing holiday decor storage space and want something a little more durable than a tattered cardboard tree box or plastic bags, we have what you need! Take a look at these recommendations to see if any of them fit your family.

Magellan Outdoors 92L Waterproof Gear Box
Many people like to use a large cardboard bag or box to store their Christmas tree, but a rigid container has the benefits of great protection and a stackable design. An example is the Magellan Outdoors waterproof gearbox.
This bag comes in three sizes, but we recommend the larger size to store your Christmas tree. It has a lot of space, being just under 35 inches long and with a capacity of 92 litres. Since most artificial trees are divided into sections, they should fit easily into this box with room to spare.
The best thing about Magellan gearboxes is their waterproof design. If you store your holiday decorations in an area prone to moisture such as a shed or basement, waterproof bags can ensure your items stay safe from water damage.
Price: $49.99 – $99.99

HART Modular Regulators
To store your Christmas decorations, you need a combination of organization and protection. HART offers this with its Stack System, which features a wide range of storage options for holiday decor items.
As a modular system, these boxes allow you to customize the interior compartments to suit your needs. This design represents a practical solution for storing and organizing small ornaments, hooks and even spare bulbs for your Christmas lights. We even use them for spare Lego pieces to keep everything organized and in one place.
This storage system also features a stackable design, with a variety of box sizes to meet other storage needs as well. Keep your wreaths, wreaths and decorations in one place while taking advantage of the HART Stack System’s vertical design.

Plano Sportsman Trunks
Storage of other Christmas decorations, such as lights, tree skirts, quilts and hanging items, varies depending on their size, weight and shape. Depending on how much storage space you need, we have some excellent recommendations for you.
Plano Sports Bins come in three sizes: small (56 quarts), medium (68 quarts), and large (108 quarts). We recommend the small size for storing additional decor items like wreaths and folded strings of lights. Medium and large bins are large enough for things like blankets, seasonal quilts, wall hanging items, and even Christmas trees.
Price: $21.99 – $49.99
Need to store waterproof Christmas decorations?
Waterproof storage is the best choice for people who store their Christmas decorations in high-humidity or leak-prone areas, such as basements and outdoor sheds. Without a waterproof solution, your decorations may be susceptible to damage because they are usually stored for most of the year.
If you’re someone who stores their holiday decor in areas with a low risk of water damage, such as an indoor closet, it probably isn’t necessary to spend the extra change on waterproof storage, although it wouldn’t hurt!
Why not just buy cheap plastic storage boxes for Christmas decorations?
Cheap plastic bags may seem like a more budget-friendly storage option, but they come with some major trade-offs in quality. They can be flimsy on a good day, and downright unreliable on a bad day. They’re also prone to chipped edges, covers that crack or stop fitting… the list goes on.
We are big fans of putting quality over quantity. If you can afford one or two storage boxes and make them last a long time, it’s hard to justify buying several of these cheap bags just to give them away after a few seasons. Storage options like the ones we mentioned above should put an end to this endless, time-wasting cycle, giving you more peace of mind that your items will remain safe from damage.
Why you can trust professional tool reviews
Have you ever checked a “review” site and can’t tell if they’ve actually tested anything or if they’re just “recommending” Amazon’s best sellers? This is not us. We wouldn’t recommend anything unless we’ve used it ourselves. It’s all about giving you a legitimate recommendation and our honest opinion about each product.
We’ve been in business since 2008 covering tools, writing reviews and reporting industry news in the construction and lawn care industries. Our professional reviewers work in the trades and have the skills and experience needed to know if tools can perform well in the field.
Every year, we get our hands on hundreds of individual products. In addition to the tools we bring to our store in Lakeland, FL, our team will get up close and personal with more at media events and trade shows throughout the year.
Pro Tool Reviews consults with innovators in technology and tool design to gain a broader understanding of where these products fit in and how they work.
We work with professional contractors across the United States who review products for us on real jobsites. We consult with them extensively on test methods, categories and practical applications.
Our site will provide over 500 pieces of new content this year completely free to our readers. This includes objective evaluations of individual tools and products.
The end result is information you can trust because of the real-world editorial, scientific, and professional expertise we collectively use every time we pick up a tool and test it.
