Christmas business ideas, anyone? If you’ve been considering starting your own business, the holiday season is actually a great time to start. With Christmas bearing down on us quickly, everyone around you needs help in some form or another.
Holiday business ideas for moms
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the most expensive. Amidst all the festivities, we have to buy gifts for friends and family, put up decorations, and prepare for parties left and right. And Christmas bonuses can only cover so much, right?
If you’re looking for ways to earn extra funds for the holiday season, why not put up a small business? Having one can help, not just cover costs, but can also turn a profit. Here are some business ideas for you to consider:
1. Christmas decorations and crafts
Time to get crafty! If you know how to make handcrafted lanterns, tree ornaments, wreaths, cards, and other crafts, these can be a lucrative sideline for you this season. You don’t even need a big capital for this; you can opt to use recycled materials to make your small business venture eco-friendly.
2. Clothes and accessories
With all the parties going on, everyone wants to look their best. So if you have an eye for style, put your fashion prowess to work and sell clothing products! Buy wholesale from Taytay or Baclaran, then resell them. You don’t even have to join a bazaar or have a physical store; with the convenience of online shopping, you can put up your products on different shopping platforms.
3. Offer gift wrapping services
Let’s admit it, not everyone has the time or skill to wrap gifts by themselves. So if you have the knack for pretty packaging, why not offer your services to family and friends? All you need to get started are gift wrappers, tapes, ribbons, scissors, gift tags, and decorative knick-knacks, if you’re feeling fancy.
4. Interior and exterior decorating
There are plenty of people who want their spaces decorated for the holidays but can’t be bothered to do it themselves. If you have an eye for decorating spaces, why not offer to decorate for friends and family? Don’t forget to take pictures of the finished product and post them to attract more business!
5. Christmas delicacies and food products
One major highlight of the season, if not the main highlight? Food, of course! This time of the year marks the comeback of Filipino holiday favorites like puto bumbong, bibingka, ham, fruit salad, baked goods, and more. You can even do food orders for parties and gatherings.
