26. Delivery of products around the clock
The essence of the idea is to organize round-the-clock delivery of products to the customer’s home. On holidays, it will be possible to compete with store delivery services, since in practice they are quite busy. Products are bought by themselves in convenience stores in fact. But alcohol can be delivered at night, having bought the most popular one in advance.
27. Create a shopping blog
Of course, one cannot ignore such a business idea as creating a shopping blog. This idea, with its proper development, in the future will turn into a permanent source of income and will go out of the category of winter business. The idea is well implemented in focusing on one specific city.
Blog content – shops, gifts, discounts, promotions – blogger’s stories, supported by photos. Profit is expected from advertising, and advertisers are the same stores that you write about.
28. Making memorable New Year’s albums and calendars
A fairly popular type of inexpensive present is an album or calendar for next year in a New Year’s theme.

As an option, you can offer to make an album or calendar, in the theme of a festive New Year’s Eve with photographs and scenes from it.
29. Cooking services at home
Cooking a festive dinner is a great opportunity to make money on the New Year for those who know how to cook deliciously and serve food beautifully. This service is used by wealthy and simply busy people who want to organize a festive feast at home. Additionally, you can offer services for the purchase of products, service at the table, and cleaning after the feast, for an additional fee.
30. Internet site for reselling and exchanging New Year’s gifts that you didn’t like
A rather interesting business idea is the organization of resale or exchange of unnecessary or disliked gifts. The most profitable and low-cost way to do this is to create an Internet resource (blog, page). The commission from the transaction will be the profit of the author and the fee for incognito.
Almost any of the above business ideas can be implemented independently, or you can hire people and organize an entire trading network. In the second option, the profit is much greater, but the risks also increase. Do not forget about advertising – both using Internet resources (social networks, thematic forums, websites, etc.), and in the classic format.
And remember, holidays divide people into those who have a rest, and those who make money on it. The choice is yours! Successful business!
