If you're like me, you'll find the fall season a bit of a bummer: Summer's over and the cooler weather is setting in. However, the fall season is an exciting one for retailers because the giant retail holidays are coming! Christmas, Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday and Black Friday are just around the corner. 

In the context of the holiday shopping season, you'll have to think of the product, life cycle and their journey during events like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday, and Black Friday, through their stages of growth, peak demand, and eventual decline in sales. Businesses strategically plan their marketing, promotions, and inventory management to capitalize on the heightened consumer interest and spending during these festive occasions. Effective management of the product lifecycle during these events is crucial for maximizing sales and profitability in the holiday shopping frenzy.

Beyond that, the winter selling season is huge and presents us retailers with a big opportunity to cash in. Here's a quick list of 20 ideas for products that you can sell this fall/winter season.

      Hi, Michael!

      Clothing and accessories always something to look into, but it can be difficult finding the right mix of sizes to stock. (Dropshipping is a great option for clothing!) Otherwise, you might consider skincare/beauty products, heaters, heating pads,and all kinds of holiday supplies (decorations as well as party supplies).

      This post has a great starter list. However, you might want to talk to some of the other sellers on the SaleHoo forum! https://www.salehoo.com/forum/ You can get advice from people who sell just like you do, as well as our staff. =)

      Good luck!

      Hello Jean,

      You can sell pretty much anything you wish, however I suggest you check out our Labs tool once you're a member (https://www.salehoo.com/labs). It is designed to help you research top selling products across all categories. For each product we provide a list of potential suppliers you can then check out that are likely to stock the specific (or similar) product.

      SaleHoo is a product sourcing directory of genuine and verified suppliers (manufacturers, wholesalers, dropshippers, and liquidators) used by eBay, Amazon and online sellers to research and source items for resell.

      Hop this helps. All the best :)
