Packing presents in the car is one of the most head-scratching parts of holiday travel, but there are easy and efficient ways to get it done. Follow these tips and make your holiday a little bit easier.
One of the best ways to save space is waiting to wrap the gifts until you get to your destination, but only do this if your hosts don’t mind you stealing a room for a couple hours to do your wrapping.
If you’d rather pack first, you’ll want to fit as much as you can in totes or laundry baskets, any hard plastic carrier that won’t get squished and fits in your trunk. This makes it a lot easier to carry the gifts to and from the house, and it also lets you pack inside without freezing your extremities off in the cold.
Put heavy things on the bottom, with flat packages on the sides of the tote and tall, thin boxes in corners. Gift bags can sit on top of the heavier boxes on the bottom, and extra gift bags that don’t fit in the totes can be shoved into crevices.
