Christmas time is a popular choice for thieves looking out for top quality items to steal.
The British Insurance Brokers Association (Biba) gives home owners some tips for keeping their property safe this winter.
Graeme Trudgill, technical and corporate affairs executive at Biba said that protecting valuable belongings, including Christmas presents and car keys, is advisable in the festive period.
Mr Trudgill explained: "If you have got valuable items, don't leave them where people can see them. With Christmas coming up, unfortunately burglars are known to head for the Christmas tree and take the presents from underneath."
Many insurance polices give extra cover for Christmas and weddings to allow for the increased home contents value.
If you are not sure if you have the correct cover... ask us to help with a quote... and enjoy opening your Christmas presents.
