Pumpkin spice lattes are officially being sold at Starbucks, so it means it’s unofficially the start of fall! With fall comes the holidays. If you want to earn some extra money around this time of year, there are some side hustles you can start to work on now.
If you are crafty, consider making holiday crafts that people can purchase as gifts for coworkers, friends, and family. You can make stickers, holiday cards, pillows, and so much. The possibilities are endless. You can focus on gifts or holiday-themed decorations.
If you love to cook, consider making baked goods to sell to your community. These would be great for holiday parties. If you enjoy making casseroles and other unique dishes, you can also make that. People are so busy around the holidays that you can use your love of cooking to make some extra money.
If you have a rental space, consider using it for holiday parties. Offices, communities, and families host parties around the holidays, and when the big spaces are booked, they will be looking for other options. You can let your friends and coworkers know about this or even list your space on Airbnb.
Whatever your hobby or passion is, there is a way to use that skill as a service you can sell for the holidays. Start planning now so you can set up a website, send mail, or other marketing plans so that when people are thinking of the holidays, they will see your information first.
