3 Uses for Packing Supplies During the Holidays, Shiloh Valley, Illinois

The holidays mean family gatherings, delicious food, and gift-giving. To wrap and ship all those presents, you’ll need packing supplies! Here are three ways that these supplies—especially boxes—will come in handy during these months.

How to Use Packing Supplies During the Holiday Season

1. Storage

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the festive decorations. Some families have more than they can use, and those that don’t get put out will need to be stored safely away. The best place to keep them is in sturdy, tightly sealed boxes. If you don’t have space for those boxes, consider moving some possessions into a storage unit.

2. Gift-Giving

Shipping boxes have the advantage of coming in a variety of sizes, and once they’re decked out in wrapping paper, the recipient of the gift won’t notice the difference. They’re also less expensive and stronger than ordinary gift boxes, so your present will not get crushed.

3. Shipping

Even if you can’t be with your family during the holidays, you can still send them gifts. Packing supplies are in high demand at many stores during the holiday season, but they can be readily obtained from storage and moving companies. It’s best to purchase new boxes rather than recycling older ones since those may have rips and creases that weaken them, and old markings may result in packages being sent to the wrong location.
