This winter the pressure to bring joy through gifting to your inner circle is high. Unfortunately, surprising people who live in the same apartment with you is difficult. With your space already being used as a home office, gym, and school, where are you supposed to hide all the presents? Not to mention everyone is home. ALL. THE. TIME. 

When gifts bought online move from unwrapped cardboard boxes piling up in plain sight to wrapped neatly in a celebratory pile that is the same size and shape, a bit of the holiday magic is definitely lost. Luckily, Manhattan Mini Storage is here to help you keep the holiday magic alive. 

Every self-storage unit, starting for as low as $15 a month, comes with free package … make that free present acceptance! Year-round our team of storage experts will sign for your deliveries sent to your storage location and call you to let you know your package has safely arrived. And deliveries can always be held at your storage location for up to 48 hours, until you have time to stop by and receive it. From there your options are limitless. You could hide the gift in your storage unit until you’re ready to bring it home in our version of Santa’s sleigh, the Free Storage Shuttle. You could turn your storage unit into an NYC version of a suburban gift wrap room, filled with ribbons, wrapping paper and tape and take your time prepping for your special exchange in the “privacy” of our hallway. Plus, with the benefit of package acceptance with your storage, you have the option to give your end table the boot and go a little bigger on your holiday décor to give your celebration at home a little extra shine.

Best of all this year Manhattan Mini Storage is offering Free Gift Wrapping at participating locations by professional wrap stars, NYC Gift Wrapping Studio.

If you don’t have a doorman to help you make it through the holidays or have been plagued by package theft, then what you need is storage. We’re taking extra precautions to make sure that even though there’s a pandemic, and your holiday celebrations may be different this year, it is ESSENTIAL that you keep as much of the magic alive as you can this holiday season.  

* Free gift wrapping will be on a first come, first served basis and is available to Manhattan Mini Storage customers only. Due to capacity and safety concerns additional limits may be placed by locations at the discretion of management.
