If you have precious balls that are delicate and made of glass, then special care is required. Wrap each in tissue paper – put as many layers on top as you want, then put them in a basket. If you don’t have one, using an egg carton is a good trick. The thick cardboard border protects your decorations and when they are small enough you can open the lid.

2. Roll up your ribbons

If you’re lucky enough to receive gifts wrapped in beautiful ribbons, keep them and roll them up to use on someone else next year – remember who gave them to you first! You can secure each one with a piece of washi tape to keep them curled up for the rest of the year.

3. Reuse your string of lights

So when you take them off the tree, you can wrap them around your stairs, clip them around a door frame, or put them on a shelf. So you don’t have to put it away and deal with the Big Untangle next year – win win!
