How to make Money during the Christmas Holiday

Updated on January 11, 2013

You are probably wondering how you can make money during the holidays when it seems like money is running out of your wallets quicker than you can make it. Well, if you are like me you are probably excited because there are ways to make some extra cash during these fun, but stressful months. In all honesty, making money during the holidays can be more fun than making money during the rest of the year.

Santa Letters

Even though Santa letters are popular, you can still make some money off of them. The best place to start is to market them around your community because there will be mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles who will buy them for their children or other young family member. There is nothing sweeter than the look on the young child’s face when he or she reads the letter Santa sent for him. It will melt your heart for years to come. Even though, you cannot make money off of this gig all year around at least you will be able to pocket some extra spending money during the holidays.

Baking & Crafts

If you enjoy decorating and baking cookies during the holidays, then selling bake goods and crafts will be right up your alley. No one can resist purchasing some home-made goodies along with beautiful hand-made crafts either. This is a big money maker if you know what you are doing. All it takes is marketing yourself and you will be on your way to success. Personally, many individuals have a party displaying off their crafts and having some samples of their baked goods and that will usually get the orders flying right in.

Rubber Stamps

Rubber stamps, who would have thought they were still around? And who would have thought you could make money off of them? Well, fortunately you can make quite a lot of money off of them. Ways to get your name out there is market on the internet of course and also throw a party! Yes, you will always have to spend a tiny bit of money in order to make some money, but if people love your stamps so much then they will tell their friends who will tell their friends and in the end you will be mailing out your rubber stamps throughout the entire US.


T-shirts are another great way to make some holiday money. You can easily purchase large amounts of T-shirts for cheap at your local Wal-Mart and craft stores. Then what some individuals do is either decorate to order or have pre decorated shirts. These two ways can make you easy money because everyone loves to buy each other holiday shirts as gifts. If making t-shirts is not enough for you then you can also make tote bags, mugs, ornaments, aprons and anything else you can think off. This will not cost you an arm and a leg to start either, which is a good thing when you are burning more money than can make.

Gingerbread Houses

Gingerbread houses are a hit during the Christmas months. Every year many people purchase gingerbread houses to display in their house windows. If you are creative and can make some killer gingerbread houses you will be able to make a decent income off of them. With this you may want to sell them just to your community unless you want to try shipping them, but either way you will be getting customers for years to come.

The holidays are not only about spending, spending and more spending. You can easily make money as fast as you are spending money. All you have to do is market yourself and provide something the community will want/need. Have fun and remember the holidays should be a fun time of the year.
