If you are the type of person who likes to plan ahead, you most likely already have a gift in mind for Valentine’s Day. You will most likely buy it or have it delivered ahead of time too. Since this will make it that much easier to present the gift first thing in the morning rather than waiting for it to arrive at an unpredictable time. This is a great approach to Valentine’s Day shopping. Of course, when your hamper arrives, you need to make sure that you store it in the right place. Here are some factors to keep in mind.


You don’t want your hamper to get too hot or cold. Extreme temperatures can have a devastating effect on the quality of the products in the hamper. This is especially the case if your Valentine’s Day hamper includes chocolates or any type of alcohol. Make sure that you hide the hamper in a room that does not experience extreme temperatures.


Water is a real enemy of any type of food. Humid rooms ca result in water accumulating inside the hamper which can degrade the packaging as well as the products themselves. While bottles of wine will be fine, the labels will certainly show signs of damage and it will not give the right impression when you present a damaged gift.

Pets or children

Children and pets are known for their curiosity and the fact that they tend to be a bit clumsy at least. If possible, store your Valentine’s Day hamper in a room that you can lock or cupboard that can be locked so that you don’t need to worry about accidents.


Sunlight can also have a negative effect on your Valentine’s Day hamper. This is because it will heat up the hamper and can also cause condensation on the interior of the gift. Heat and condensation together will certainly cause even more severe damage.

With all of these factors in mind, you will be able to choose the perfect hiding spot for your Valentine’s Day gift. Just make sure that you don’t try to hide it in your car, garage or anywhere that it could come in contact with water or direct sunlight. Tucked away in a cupboard will prove perfect.
