With just over one week to go, it’s official – Christmas is upon us!
December is generally considered one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year, and with it comes problems of buying the perfect present, cooking Christmas dinner for the in-laws and dealing with family tensions.
We take a look at some of Brits top Christmas worries, and how Spaces and Places can help you stay calm and bright this festive season.
1. Christmas shopping
While there’s not much you can do to avoid shopping for Christmas presents, you can prevent them from taking over your house. Gifts can quickly pile up in the back of your wardrobe and under your bed, leaving you without much room to manoeuvre.
Spaces and Places provide a safe and secure place to stash Christmas presents right up until the big day. For extra peace of mind over the Christmas period, we offer a number of additional services including trouble-free collections and delivery, and insurance for as little as 55p per week.
2. Putting up guests
Accommodating family members for far longer than we’d like is another big cause of holiday stress. While you won’t be able to lock troublesome relatives in a Spaces and Places unit this Christmas, we can ensure that you’ll have enough space in your home to get some well-needed peace and quiet. Clear your loft/spare room of anything you don’t need to ensure your relatives have a decent, comfortable place to stay, and don’t get under your feet whilst you prepare for the big day.
3. Disappointing gifts
You shouldn’t feel too guilty about giving someone the wrong gift – research has shown that around 1 in 5 Christmas presents end up in the back of a cupboard! It’s happened to us all, but the question is what do we do with unwanted gifts after Christmas is over? Rather than letting them build up and take over your home why not put your unloved presents into a self-storage unit. We promise to look after them until next year when you bring them out to give to someone else or until a decent amount of time has passed and you can put them on eBay!
It really couldn’t be easier to take advantage of our Self Storage facilities this Christmas. With no fixed contracts, our storage is flexible enough for you to securely save items until the festive period is over.
Don’t let festive stress take control of you this year – speak to Spaces and Places about the self-storage options available to you.
