Not All Christmas Ornament Storage is Created Equal

Posted by kathy stanton on

I see it every year starting in November; shiny new ornaments on the shelves and storage options close by.  I hate to see plastic containers for storing ornaments. Don’t get me wrong, plastic is a great option for storing your outdoor decorations, light strings, etc. but it’s not appropriate for storing hand-blown glass ornaments because it can trap moisture inside. Humidity is the primary cause of the brown spots often seen on older and vintage ornaments. Do you recall seeing those spots on your Grandparent’s ornaments?

Our carefully designed Christmas ornament storage boxes start with an acid free chipboard which is treated with a tarnish inhibitor to prevent damage from moisture. For the most humid climates, we also recommend using a dessicant like our Desi-Pak that includes a humidity indicator, and we always recommend keeping ornaments in a climate-controlled environment inside the home.

Breakage from crowding is an equally common problem, because, “one size fits all” rarely works for your entire ornament collection; there are always some extra long or wider ornaments. We’ve designed our Christmas ornament storage boxes with removable trays and adjustable dividers so that you can easily customize cubbies to suit those special sizes.

Speaking of removable trays, I was reminded again this year of how efficient they make decorating the tree. I had trays pulled out all over the living room displaying our whole collection; my son and husband taking turns on the ladder would request, “small one please” or “where’s the Coke-a-Cola Bear?”, etc. The trays make It so easy to see all your ornaments; and that comes in super handy for packing and unpacking Christmas ornaments every year!

So while Ultimate Christmas Ornament Storage boxes are beautiful, there is so much more in our design.
