I love Christmas, but I hate the tidying up afterwards. Taking the tree and the decorations down, trying to get it back in the box in which it came in that, to be honest, is more sellotape now than a box.

We decided that this year we needed a better way to store our Christmas things. So this year we looked into how best to store Christmas decorations, how to store excess wrapping paper and the best Christmas tree storage bags for our artificial tree.

Here are Our Best Artificial Tree Storage Solutions by Type

Although this is our number one recommendation, it is not going to be the right solution for everyone.

Some people may have a smaller tree or need to store their tree in a shed where moisture could be a real problem.

If that’s the case then one of the other options below will be better suited to your needs.

Others may want an upright Christmas tree storage bag, although I found that really hard to find here. In the UK Christmas, storage bags tend to be flat for trees that have been dismantled.

Holiday Spirit Christmas Tree Storage Bags in Red and Green

The Holiday Spirit Christmas Tree Bag allows for easy storage of your Christmas tree. This handy tree bag can hold up to a 7.5ft tree and is available in traditional Christmas colours of red or green.

Made from Heavy Duty 600d Oxford Material that is not only 100% waterproof, but also protects the tree from dust dirt and creepy crawlies regardless of whether you keep your tree stored in an attic, garage or shed.

The reinforced handles and sturdy dual zips make this a durable option capable of opening wide enough for your tree to fit and strong enough to carry the weight of your tree.

What we liked:
  • Available in both Red and Green Festive Colours.
  • Heavy Duty – The bag is certainly strong enough to support the tree.
  • The 2 large handles made it easy to transport the tree to and from storage.
  • This bag zips closed so no insects can get inside.
  • Is coated in a waterproof material that not only protects the tree but also makes it easy to wipe clean.
What we didn’t like:
  • Doesn’t hold its shape, the bag has no structure to it.

Gardman 4 Foot Christmas Tree Storage Bag

The Gardman Christmas Tree Bag is 4ft in length but is more than capable of storing a 7ft tree providing it comes apart to break it down. It measures 120cm Length x 25cm Width x 43cm Height making it more than capable of storing a standard tree.

Made from a non-woven tear-resistant fabric with strong handles in a traditional Christmas green colour. Has the added benefit of a large side pocket to hold your Christmas tree lights making them easy to find. This is the most inexpensive option that we are reviewing today.

What we liked:
  • This bag is a great size, especially for bushy trees.
  • Has a handy side pocket to store things like lights (I would only do boxed lights). If you are looking to store decorations check out our post on Christmas decoration storage bags.
  • Easy wipe clean material.
  • Easy zip fastening to keep the tree fully enclosed throughout its storage time.
What we didn’t like:
  • Easy to poke a hole through the thinner material if you are not careful when putting the tree in the bag.
  • It’s certainly big enough for most trees, but not necessarily strong enough to hold a heavy tree without ripping.
  • A handle on one of the ends would make this easier to get it into and out of the attic.

Really Useful Storage Box 77 Litre Xmas Tree Clear Box

Really Useful Boxes have been making plastic storage containers to problem solve our storage issues for over 20 years and we are big fans. The 77-litre clear box is perfect for storing trees up to around 7ft depending on how bushy the tree is and how long the individual pieces are once separated.

The Clip lock handles to secure the lid in place meaning it will keep your tree clean, dry and free from creepy crawlies no matter where you choose to store it. Its clear and transparent design allows you to easily identify the contents if you have multiple trees or are storing decorations as well. They are also stackable should need more than one.

What we liked:
  • Sturdy, rigid construction, unlike a bag where the contents move around These boxes, are strong and make it easy to move your tree into the attic or garage.
  • Stackable, meaning you can use one for the tree and another for decorations, lights and other Christmas peripherals.
  • The clips keep the lid tightly in place protecting the contents.
  • One of the very few Christmas tree storage boxes available.
What we didn’t like:
  • Have a tendency to get damaged in transit, many turn up damaged.
  • No the cheapest option out there.

SHareconn Christmas Tree Storage Bag

The SHareconn Christmas tree bag is a great option for anyone looking to store an artificial tree. The double zipper allows the bag to open wide for easy access to place the tree inside.

The two handles are double reinforced and allow for easy carrying of the tree capable of holding a heavyweight.

The bag is made from a durable PVC that is both waterproof and dustproof, but is still breathable and is available in traditional Christmas colours of both red and green.

What we liked:
  • Plenty of space in the bag for the tree and other decorations
  • The strong handles make moving the tree around the house easy.
  • Lightweight storage bag 
  • Available in festive colours either as a Red Christmas tree bag or a Green Christmas tree bag. Perfect if you have more than one tree.
What we didn’t like:
  • No structure to the bag.
  • The bag feels a little flimsy

Top Tips When Choosing Christmas Tree Bags or Boxes.

  1. Make sure it’s big enough. Many trees come apart into 2, 3 or more pieces. Make sure the bag is bigger than the largest single part.
  2. What sort of environment you are planning on keeping the tree stored in, will it be exposed to sun, temperatures and humidity? To learn more about why humidity is important when storing things check out the guys over at Humidity Solver.
  3. If you have other items you need to need to store with your trees such as baubles, lights, wreaths and other decorations. How will you store these items? Can they be stored together in the tree bag?

Top Tips for packing away your Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree Storage Packing Tips
  1. Remove all decorations and lights and pack these away safely in their protective cases. 
  2. Take the tree apart at all the right sections and remove the stand and take that apart so everything can lay as flat and straight as possible. 
  3. Push all the branches up and straighten all the branches. 
  4. Place each section of the tree in the bag safely. Any pointy or sharp parts of the tree should be placed at the bottom.
  5. Make sure not to bend any of the branches too far as they could result in permanent damage.
  6. Lastly place the stand in the bag as flat as possible, if there is space. If space is tight, store the stand with the rest of the decorations. ** TOP TIP If you store the stand separately, make sure you leave yourself a note or a reminder somewhere – a year is a long time**
  7. If possible store your tree flat in an attic or garage. If not place it upright in a corner away from other items so it doesnt get knocked and potentially falls over.

Conclusion

Christmas is a magical time, but the clean up after is always a nightmare. Trying to get the tree cramped back into a box that it should never have fitted into, in the first place.

Then next year rolls around and I’m left trying to find all the decorations, the tree, the stand, the lights and I promise you they are never where I left them.

Whatever artificial Christmas tree storage bag you choose it will make your life easier when it comes to packing and unpacking your Xmas Tree, just remember whatever one your order needs to be longer than your longest piece of tree.

As long as you get that bit right, you can’t go too far wrong.

Is Christmas paraphernalia storage a pain? Do you constantly lose decorations and grift wrap from year to year?
