Other popular places to hide gifts include:

  • Spare rooms
  • Coat closets
  • Under their bed (Editor: I’m assuming that means under the parents’ bed, because hiding the Christmas gifts under the KIDS’ beds is actually pretty ingenious. When’s the last time your kid looked under their bed? Judging by the six-month-old sandwich, at least that long.)
