If you’re looking for lucrative Christmas business ideas for your next venture, here are some ideas to consider.
1. Christmas Lights Service
Everyone loves a brightly decorated house, especially during Christmas, Christmas light installers may provide both interior and exterior decorating options.
Becoming a Christmas light installer is a such great way to earn money at Christmas especially if you are one that is good with your hands, is good with decorations, and can afford to climb to certain heights.
2. Catering Service
Serve families and businesses that host holiday parties with your own catering businesses. Offer traditional holiday favorites like turkey and stuffing, along with Christmas sugar cookies and peppermint candies.
3. Christmas Tree Rental Business
Just as there are those who prefer to buy their Christmas trees, there are those who feel awful at allowing these trees to die, and so they prefer to rent out their Christmas trees that can be returned after the festivities is over. The business is still brand new and so it’s an opportunity for you to tap into this business opportunity.
4. Sell Santa Claus Costume
The bottom line is that homemade Santa costumes are worn by loads of people either for fun or for acting and those that are involved in selling these costumes usually rake in good money during the season.
People often purchase Santa costumes for holiday parties or special events. You may either make these garments or source them from other companies. Then set up an online store or partner with retail locations.
5. Sell Children’s clothes and Toys
More children usually receive more toys and love wearing new clothes during Christmas than usual, especially if these kids grow up in a large family. Toys and new clothes are stuff that kids are never tired of and so every now and then, especially during the Christmas period, children often demand toys and new clothes to add to their collection.
6. Sell Gift Baskets (Hampers)
During the Christmas period, there are always more people exchanging gifts via gift baskets than in any other season especially as the season is characterized as that of giving. If you are one that can make gift baskets and are quite creative about what to put into each basket, then it is high time you consider going into this business during Christmas to earn some extra bucks.
7. Sell Christmas Cards
The Christmas period is usually a time when people give greeting cards. Most of the cards are usually followed by the gifts themselves or a flower and so the sale of cards during this period usually booms. Unlike in times past, when designing a card might have been difficult, nowadays, with the help of a computer, this is a fairly easy business to go into.
8. Christmas Party Entertainer
During the Christmas season, more people are likely to host parties than usual and half of these are usually parties for children and young ones. Such parties often need someone who can keep the little kids engaged with tricks such as light magic tricks, ball juggling, and other such tricks. Also, it’d be a mighty plus if you can sing or dance.
If you know you have such talents, this is not a period to allow them to go to waste. You should check out how many parties are likely to hold in your neighborhood, and how many you would want to attend.
9. Gift Wrapping Service
Christmas is a season of giving and as such many people usually give out gifts – small, medium, or large – during this period. However, not everyone who gives out these gifts is good, patient, or even creative at wrapping the gifts and giving them that beautifully packaged style that would make the gifts presentable.
10. Christmas Event Organizer
During the Christmas period, there are often lots of events that are usually put up. The events could range from casual affair to serious one that has lots of personalities and celebrities showing up to attend. If you have had any experience with planning events, then the Christmas period should be a time for you to make more money from your abilities.
