Gathering holiday gifts for your child is a blast, especially if you plan to surprise the kid with something special. But keeping that new bicycle or gaming system a secret until the actual holiday can be something of a chore. Thankfully, the toy hiding spots your kids will never find are basically guaranteed to keep your holiday loot safe from snoopy kiddos. Even the most determined present sleuths won't figure out these hiding spots.
Because the present-hiding dilemma has been going on for who knows how long, parents have had plenty of time to perfect their hiding tactics. And really, some of these are brilliant ideas even hide the gifts in plain sight. Your kids could eat or sleep just inches away from those desired gifts without ever knowing.
Why do parents (and other gift-givers) go so far to protect the surprise aspect of these presents anyway? I couldn't find any concrete info about why surprise gifts are so much fun, but they definitely are. I mean, the look on a kid's face when he gets that much-desired toy on a holiday morning is priceless. So parents will go to some creative lengths to ensure that big surprise gift remains a surprise.
