Best Christmas Business Ideas

1.Gift baskets

I have received my fair share of Christmas gift baskets and I cannot tell you how much joy it brings to my heart to give one and also receive one.

Gifts baskets are like treasure troves that I love to explore when I receive them. Each Christmas gift basket is unique and contains all types of products. From the rarest of spices and sauces to the even mundane things like a nail trimmer.

I sincerely love receiving gift baskets because they are usually full of pleasant surprises. If you love receiving gift baskets as I do, then consider making and selling it this Christmas.

Think of the joy you will bring to the heart of those that will receive it. If you do not know how to start a gift basket business, then consider taking my course Care package business course.

It is a course that is designed to help you start a care package business. While care packages can be used for all seasons and purposes, you can choose to channel your own business to this Christmas.

2.Vacation rentals

A lot of people travel and go on vacation during Christmas, if you have a spare space in your home, you can list it on a vacation rental site and offer it up for vacationing families. If you happen to own a summer vacation home you can also rent this out during Christmas to make money.

Sometimes you may not even own a home but you know a friend that owns one but is not willing to go through the stress of renting one out, you can ask to use it and then split the proceeds.

A lot of people have made money by using other people’s homes as a rental space for holidaying people and they have often shared the proceeds with the owners. It may surprise you but not everyone likes to list and market a home.

Christmas cards make Christmas interesting, a lot of people value the cards they get during Christmas especially when they are handmade and personalized.

If you want a simple business that you can do online that will bring you passive income during this season, then consider making selling printable Christmas cards.

4.Christmas decor

One of the most beautiful things I love about Christmas is the decor, a lot of people spend lots of money to decorate their homes during Christmas, some even start buying Christmas decor as early as July or whenever there are sales in stores.

If you have a talent for putting up great Christmas decor, consider selling that as a service to people during Christmas. Lots of people love to have great decor but do not have the time and talent to put up one.

Doing Christmas decor could be a way to make money this season. You can sign up contracts with individuals and organizations to help them decorate their homes and offices. You get paid handsomely for that business.

5.Event organizer

Lots of events take place during Christmas, from house warming parties to Christmas parties, to kids parties, wedding parties, so many people seem to push all their parties to Christmas time to have it.

If you love event organization, this is the type of Christmas business you should do.

Even if it is not for others, you can put up a Christmas show and make money from selling tickets to fun lovers. Some shows you can create include concerts, children’s funfair, Nativity play, etc.


Eating is part of Christmas celebrations, a lot of people send baked goods as gifts to their friends and also keep some at home for entertaining guests. If you love to bake all forms of confectionaries, this may be the time to start your Baked goods business.

The Christmas period will be the best time to actually launch it because you will have a lot of friends and family that will order from you. With good reviews from them, you can expand your business all year round.

Another way to get more orders is to partner with gift basket makers to offer your homemade cookies as part of their Christmas hamper. Everyone loves a good cookie for Christmas.

7.Local Tour Guide

Do you live in a tourist locale and you have a good idea of where the best and ideal spots are, then think of becoming a local tour guide.

Local tour guides usually sign up with tourist companies to provide tourists with a guide to finding the best places for sightseeing, hiking, eating, and shopping.

Local tourist guides cut down the expense for new tourists who may miss their way and end up in the wrong location for lack of familiarity with the terrain.

8.Christmas Sweater Knitting

Do you love knitting? here is an opportunity to make money from your craft. We all know that during Christmas the weather is cold so there is a requirement for warmer clothing. A lot of people love to wear Christmas sweaters that are made for families.

You can turn your love for knitting into a Christmas business by creating and selling Sweaters that are for families.

This way you help families to bond during the Christmas period and you can make money doing what you love. Don’t forget to make bundles that include Santa hats, mittens, and gloves.

Selling knitted goods is one of my best Chrstmas business ideas because I love handmade and unique goods. it makes me feel special.

9. Print on Demand

This is another business that will bring you quick bucks this Christmas, if you are good with graphic designs you can sell your desigsn via Print on demand.

Print on demand companies helps you to print your designs on mugs, tshirts, caps, plates, stationery etc. They also help you to deliver your products to buyers.
