Handmade Soap Bars

The world of handmade goods has recently escalated over the years in popularity. Online ecommerce stores are one of the best markets now for old-fashioned, hand-crafted goods. In a world where there’s so much modern tech ahead of us, shoppers tend to be looking back to rustic styles and more comforting handmade products.

Taking this opportunity to span your possible ideas and creating it into a reality is a great idea. I personally started my own ecommerce business and have got over 500 sales this year from my products, and it was just a simple pen and paper idea that has now become a reality. Here are 6 best handmade product ideas that people repeatedly buy online.

Candles

Candles could be seen as an over saturated market, but people use candles to then buy more once they’ve burnt out. Online, there are such a variety of uniquely shaped candles you could find your own design/shape that could get people interested in buying your new original design. The most popular candle designs are female body candles and square bubble candles. But you going the step further and creating a new design could put you ahead of the market and create a new niche of candle designs.

Bath Bombs and Homemade Soaps

Bath bombs have had a comeback this year, having a year in a pandemic, people often spent their downtime relaxing and trying new products one of them being bath bombs. Ever since then, it’s been on the rise. Seeing as these are surprisingly easy to make at home with loads of DIY tutorials online, creating new shapes and colours could be a way forward to make the most out of this niche market. Handmade soaps tend to sell as well using different techniques, ingredients, and scents so they’re further personalisation than the bath bombs. Handmade soaps aren’t as trendy this year, but they are an evergreen product, meaning many people enjoy them and they haven’t lost value to them.

Fashion Accessories

Speaking of evergreen products, jewellery and fashion accessories are the easiest and wearable products to buy online. Creative sellers can add personalisation or a unique style to their products and build a customer base of like-minded customers. For example, if you are a jeweller selling matching tags for you and your dog or cat, your customer base would be pet lovers. Other more simple accessories could be scrunchies, flannel hair bows or bandanas.

Hand-Drawn Stickers

Stickers have been on an uprising trend since 2018, possibly because they’re so simple to manufacture and cheap to sell on. With a little imagination, creating your own designs for stickers and learning what’s the best materials to use for printing.

Rustic Home Décor

Handmade vases, wooden carved signs, and personalised cushions. The home décor industry still has a lot of space for unique individual designs. People have recently gone back to good ol’ fashioned décor to put above their fireplaces so finding a design that you can work with easily to sell on could be the perfect niche for you to focus on. The simple ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ signs that you see on wooden planks can be something that you create for peoples homes.

Handmade Journals

Finally, handmade journals having been trending for a few years. The old technique of sewing books together has seemed to have a rise of interest by customers. Finding the time could be difficult but the process is very therapeutic, and the journals sell for a high price due to the amount of care put in each individual journal. There are many videos online which show how to make handmade journals if you have a lot of patience and time on your hands. Using a variety of designs for the front cover or going the step further and using leather to bind your books together could be perfect in creating a completely individual niche within journaling. Personalisation could be another option added to this concept which could give you a lot more cash.

Happy Creating!
