Storage Boxes Buying Guide

The decorations, lights, wreaths, garlands, and other accents that we treasure at holiday time must be protected the other 11 months of the year. Luckily there are storage boxes to accommodate those often odd-size items, designed specifically for everything from ornaments to wreaths. Here's what you need to know to make the best storage purchase for your holiday decor.

Types of Storage Boxes

Types of Storage Boxes

The holiday items we treasure the most are often of unusual sizes and shapes—round, tall, and skinny, for example. Storage boxes made just for items such as artificial trees and wreaths make protecting those pieces much easier. What you need for storage boxes is in large part determined by what holiday items you have or plan on purchasing. Types of storage boxes include ornament, wreath, general, tree, wrapping paper, garland, and lights. Here's a guide to all the storage boxes you'll find and what works best for various holiday items.

Ornament

Most ornament boxes are subdivided to provide separate spaces for individual ornaments. Some have several stackable layers to allow for more ornament storage.

Wrapping Paper

Typically long and narrow, wrapping paper storage boxes allow for convenient storage of rolls; some may have separate compartments for tape, ribbon, and scissors, too.

Garland

Of varying size, garland storage boxes supply a safe spot to store garland made of faux greenery or other materials.

Lights

Storage boxes for lights typically feature a mechanism to prevent the strands from tangling and accommodate several strands at once.

Product Features

Product Features

Not all storage boxes are the same. In addition to accommodating the size and storage needs of your holiday items, storage boxes should be durable and flexible. And storage boxes should last as long as the life of your holiday ornaments and accents, which means they must have certain product features that prolong their usability. Those include type of material, dimensions, and stackability. Here's what you may want to review before deciding on a storage box purchase.

Material

One of the more common materials for storage boxes is hard plastic. Other material choices include soft plastic for items such as tree bags and heavy cardboard.

Dimensions

Measure your holiday items before choosing storage boxes, and think about future needs. For example, a small wreath box may accommodate what you have now, but if you one day get a larger wreath, you may have to purchase a different storage box.

Stackability

In order to maximize flexibility and enable you to place storage boxes in a variety of spots, make sure the storage boxes can be stacked on top of one another.

Color

Storage boxes for holiday items come in a variety of colors. You may wish to select certain colors based on the type of holiday items stored or the holiday itself (red and green for Christmas, for example).

Closure

Lids on storage boxes will fasten shut in a variety of ways. Plastic storage boxes may snap shut, while other types may simply rest on the box or secure with a more defined fastener.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Luckily, storage boxes are relatively inexpensive items that can pay huge dividends in terms of protecting treasured holiday decor. And as ornaments and other decorations are gradually accumulated, storage boxes can be gradually accumulated, too. As you're reviewing the types and product features, think through the purchase considerations that affect storage boxes: cost and life span. Here's a quick overview.

Cost

Cost varies widely for storage boxes, depending on material and size.

Life Span

Some storage boxes will be more durable than others and protect better against light or damp conditions. Take a good look at the box's construction before making a purchase.
