What would you do? What would you do if the holidays roll around, you go to find a box of presents you've been adding to all year, and you can't find it? What if you also can't find your ornaments or holiday decorations? You know they are in the house, but no matter where you look or how many rooms you tear apart, they don't seem to be anywhere. Panic would likely set in, frustration would begin building, and the fear of not having gifts you once purchased or decorations to hang around the house could potentially ruin the holiday season. It is easy to lose these things since they have been stored for nearly a year, but if you can't find the gifts, ornaments, or decorations, what would you do?

Throughout the year, many will buy gifts here and there to store away for their children or family members, to help distribute the money. Sometimes, you will buy a gift on Black Friday, or early in the holiday season, hide it so the person it is for can't find it, but be unable to find it when the time comes to give it to them or to put it under the tree. Panic can set in, as you search and search and continue to come up empty. The thoughts of it being stolen or thrown away sink in, or did somebody else find it and open it for themselves? Do you buy another gift? Do you destroy the house looking for it? Do you chalk it up to a loss and deal with it? It is tough to keep tabs on all the gifts throughout the year and holiday season.

While losing the presents is the worst-case scenario, losing the Christmas decorations is bad too, and just as likely. You have been storing your decorations for a year, and it is possible that they have been moved or buried over that time and it is tough to find all of the bins or boxes they are stored in. There might be some decorations or certain ornaments that you enjoy every year, but can't seem to find where they have gone off to. Perhaps you can't find your fake tree, your stockings, or some other important decoration that is out every year. Do you try to find something to replace the ones you can't find? Do you continue to look and tear your attic, garage, or shed apart? Do you just let the holiday season go without them, and hope that they will be found throughout the next year and can return next holiday season?

If you are still searching for your decorations or those gifts you have hidden throughout the year, the good news is that there is still time, but you better find them quickly. There is also time to buy new ones if you think they are lost forever or won't be found until next year or beyond. If you are struggling with finding your presents, decorations, ornaments, or think you could lose a gift, what would you do?
