Out with Halloween, in with Christmas; say goodbye to pumpkins and ghosts and say hello to magical lights!


We all know that Christmas is the season of giving, but don’t forget that it is also the best season to make money.


Get busy and be up-to-date with these five ideas for your business during this season:

 

1. Christmas delicacies
We, Filipinos, are known to love food – no matter the type of cuisine (Chinese, Japanese, American, Korean, you name it); and Christmas is the season for pigging out! Given that Filipinos are food lovers or "foodpreneur", delicacies can be one of your best targets this season. Some Christmas favorites include the famous hamon, queso de bola, puto bumbong, fruitcakes, fruit salads, cassava cakes, and leche flans.


Make use of your cooking skills and sell your delicacies to your family, friends, and even workmates. You can search or read on step-by-step recipe tutorials if you don’t have the idea on how to make them.

 

2. Gift wrapping services
Do you have the talent for wrapping gifts? Well if you do, your service can help save time and convenience for other people. A lot of people don't have the luxury of time to wrap gifts for Christmas. With this, you can offer your service and make extra income! You just need to have materials like gift wrappers, ribbons, attractive gift tags, scissors, and your creative skills!

 

3. Holiday home decor
Do you have interior designing skills? Or do you love to decorate for the holidays? Why not turn it into a profitable business? One of the ‘holiday stress’ homeowners face is the decoration of their houses, so why not lend a hand and make it as a sideline?

4. Christmas toys & gift items
Do you have friends, relatives who need gift ideas this season? Why not be a seller yourself for Christmas gift items? Buy quality products in wholesale and sell them at retail prices. Just choose items you know your friends would love to buy for this season and you’re good to go.

 

5. Christmas cards
Are you an artist at heart? Turn your skills into a card-making business. Make personalized Christmas cards out of your creativity with a variety of themes, poetry, puns, and slogans. Just make use of your creative juices and you can now make a profit! It can either be digital (sent via email or social networking sites
), or handwritten, with more touch of sincerity.

 

To reach a wider network with your business idea, aside from posting on your personal social media accounts, you can post it on UnionBank GlobalLinker to attract possible customers and, or suppliers.
