How a Self Storage Unit Can Help Accommodate the Perfect Valentine's Day Surprise


Valentine's Day. A holiday dedicated to showing that special someone how much they mean to you. And while you certainly can’t go wrong with roses and chocolates, sometimes the occasion calls for something more extravagant. However, when you want to go all out with elaborate decorations or large gifts, trying to keep your plans under wraps can be a daunting task. A self storage unit is an ideal space to help you pull off the ultimate Valentine's Day surprise.

Hideaway for Your Gifts

Some gifts are easy to keep hidden. Some not so much. Let’s face it: There’s no hiding things like a new mountain bike or one of those incredibly large teddy bears. With a storage unit, anything you order online can be delivered directly to your storage facility to ensure that your life partner doesn't intercept any unexplainable package arrivals.

Staging Area for Your Surprise

If you're going to go all out for your significant other, you're going to need some supplies. And whether you live apart or together, chances are hiding a bunch of candles and 1,000 silk rose petals will prove challenging. With a personal storage unit, you have a staging area for everything from assembling new furniture to prepping two dozen candles for the big night.

Romantic Scavenger Hunt

If your partner is an urban adventurer, your storage unit can be one of several destinations on your well-planned, citywide scavenger hunt. You can text clues throughout the day, even get friends to participate. When it comes to what you want them to find in the unit, we'll leave that part up to you.
