What would you say if I said you could make more money than you spend this holiday season? Would you want to know more? Below I’m going to give you several money-making ideas you can use this and every other holiday season. Pick the one or two that interest you the most and have fun!
How To Make More Money Instead of Spending It This Holiday Season
There is no better feeling than in making a child feel special during the holidays. When a child receives a letter from Santa, the guy they look up to, that child is going to feel like a million bucks. Selling to parents, grandparents, daycare, and preschools are a great way to get business during this holiday season.
Once one child starts telling their friends that THEY got a letter from Santa, the news will spread and quickly. Those children will turn into little walking advertisements for your new business. You can run this type of business all year long with letters from the Easter Bunny, Cupid, and the Great Pumpkin, just to name a few.
This business is not just fun but it is a great way to make more money than you will spend on Christmas and other holidays throughout the year!
It doesn’t matter if you’re into woodworking, sewing, painting, pottery, or creating handmade paper. More than ever, people enjoy giving that one-of-a-kind special gift. You can sell your handmade crafts on the internet, at holiday bazaars or craft shows, or even consignment style. Once you become known for your crafts, word-of-mouth will keep you very busy.
Holiday crafts are a great way to make more money than you spend and can take place throughout the entire year, not just the holidays.
A Holiday Gratitude Service
This is a fabulous way for businesses to say thank you to their community. Talk with your local business about what they would like to contribute to the holiday kit that you will be offering to local residents.
It could be a free gift, a discount, coupons, etc. Its a win-win situation for everyone. The community receives some discounts and the businesses get more business.
This type of service can also be run all throughout the year by offering newcomer packets to those who have just moved into the neighborhood or who has just had a new baby. You can even offer a package to new pet owners. You could have a lot of fun with this one and make more money than you may think.
One idea to make more money during the holidays is to create your own line of holiday cards with rubber stamps. Many people have found this to be a profitable business.
The card-sending season is upon us and soon, everyone will be searching for the perfect holiday card to send to family and friends. This is your opportunity to break out into business and create unique hand-stamped holiday cards.
You can also offer a class teaching this great hobby. Rubber stamping can be worked into so many different businesses. I’ve been to a rubber-stamping party where we were able to create our own cards.
If you are into rubber stamping, seriously consider having a rubber stamping card party. You would supply everything needed, and could charge either a flat fee or charge per card made.
Running a T-shirt business is a great way to make more money during the holidays. You can create inexpensive holiday sweatshirts and long- and short-sleeved T-shirts. You can include tote bags, felt and cloth ornaments, advent and traditional calendars, aprons and many other items that you can purchase wholesale and sell at retail prices!
I don’t know about you, but I love fleece blankets! I was really excited when I found out I could make these awesome “Snuggler” blankets without having to sew a stitch. You can make blankets that are made out of Polar Fleece material. They are soft, warm, cozy, durable, and wonderfully ‘Snuggler.’ There’s no sewing or needlework involved; all you do is cut and tie. Making “Snugglers” is a great way to start and create a business, make more money, or just make them for gifts. It’s all up to you!
eBay has not gone away but has grown. So why not sell merchandise online. The holiday season is the best time of year as everyone is shopping for gifts for others. People are always looking for unique and interesting gifts to give their loved ones.
What better place to find something different than online auctions. Start thinking about what you might have that you could sell online and you could make more money than you think. Especially at Christmas time!
Baking for others is a great way to make more money and not just for the holidays either! You can bake cookies, pies and other goodies for a various number of other events too! These can include birthdays, graduations, weddings, and more.
Plan It Right
These are just a few ideas you can use to make more money this holiday season. Use your imagination. Remember, people are more than willing to spend money on that special gift and holiday service. Why can’t you be the one who pockets that money? This is such a great time of year to make your business work. Being your own boss has never sounded better, now has it? Start thinking now if you want this to be seasonal work, or if you want to continue your business into the new year. All of the business ideas I listed above can be run throughout the year. This could be the start of something very profitable!
