It’s the new year, and many of us are getting ready to put our ideas to paper and set big goals for the year.
It’s going to be an amazing one. I can feel it in my bones.
In this article. we’re looking at the top 10 trending handmade and print on demand products that are super fun and creative to make, yet also profitable.
I did the research for you so you don’t have to.
So if you’re ready to find your awesome creative idea that you can share with the world, let’s get into it.
Let’s explore the top 10 trending handmade products to sell in 2022
Boho-Chic is a style that comes from the word Bohemian, which referred to gypsy and hippie influences.
With time, the word evolved also, including the likes of artists and musicians and writers who traveled and lived a humble nomadic lifestyle.
Boho-Chic can be described as a combination of different colors, patterns, and textures that give off a relaxed easy-going vibe.
Boho-Chic decor is really popping right now.
A few ideas of things you can make are: Decorative macrame wall decorations, rugs, and even chairs.
But what if interior design and decor isn’t really your thing?
Well, Boho-Chic fashion is also super trending right now.
Clothing, like flare jeans, long and flowy fabrics, and mix prints are very popular and sought after.
Who doesn’t love a cute witty or just flat-out awesome looking t-shirt, right?
People love buying t-shirts with things that make them laugh, words that resonate with, or cool designs.
T-shirts can be a statement, and for many people it’s sharing a part of their identity.
That’s one reason why they’re so popular.
We know that fashion trends don’t ever really die.
They may be in now, and a decade or so later, come back into style.
Well right now, 90’s graphic tees are trending.
People get excited when they’re reminded of their younger days, and they feel happy when they see something so familiar and reminiscent of the good old days.
Women’s graphic tees are also trending.
Creative designs or empowering statements, and quotes are always best sellers.
So the world is slowly opening up again to travel, and more and more people are itching to get on a plane and fly off to their next vacation.
Have you looked at the ticket prices lately?
They’re even higher than they were before COVID.
Now, here’s an interesting thing:
An essential part of packing for your vacation is your toiletry bag, right?
And lots of people seem to be in need of new ones.
But what’s even better than a new toiletry bag?
A new, personalized toiletry bag.
As humans, we love to make known the things that are important to us and what we wear and use are an indicator of those things.
It’s the same idea as setting your phone’s wallpaper to a picture of you and your significant other, or buying a graphic tee that has a cute cat graphic on it, to show other people that you love cats, right?
The same goes for toiletry bags.
So get creative and put those smiles on those faces.
While handmade soap in general is always extremely popular, and it always has been, right?
A big reason for this is that handmade soap doesn’t contain the toxins and chemicals that store-bought soap does, and they have the benefits of high quality ingredients like oils and butters.
Handmade body scrub specifically are also highly sought after.
In addition to the benefits of handmade soap, body scrubs also exfoliate the skin, and exfoliation has become a huge trend in skin care in recent years.
So this one’s definitely worth to try, especially if you already make bath and body products.
This style is known for its sophisticated yet rustic rural and cozy feel.
Colors for the style are neutral, such as beige gray, creams, black, white and brown.
You can make farmhouse style tables, baskets, kitchen shells, wall decorations, art.
There’s literally so much you can do with this.
It’s so Instagram photo-worthy, and many people continue to flock to this style.
So if you can make a product with this theme, it’s going to be really easy for you to make a lot of sales.
Those materials are super hot right now, so if you already make jewelry, maybe consider starting a line using those materials.
You know, I’m a polymer clay artist so I might be biased, but it is so much fun to use, and you can make literally anything you want.
Earrings are the number one most bought type of jewelry, and they’re more searched for than, say, necklaces.
So definitely lean into earrings if you can’t decide what type of jewelry to make.
Are you particularly good at a craft like sewing, embroidery, or knitting?
Then you’ve got a skill that other people are dying to learn how to do.
Creating an online course, where you take people step-by-step through the process of how to do, and get good at, the craft you’re an expert in, is a great way to not only share knowledge, but to also earn a really good income while doing so.
Because pre YouTube videos are great, but doesn’t teach you everything, and people sometimes need a more in-depth approach to learn from a teacher, that could be you!
More people are turning to online courses now more than ever, for the convenience, flexibility, and just a genuine interest in the topic they’re paying to learn how to do.
There’s something special, and cozy, about a handmade scarf, or a beanie, sweater or a blanket.
I have a pair of Hendon fingerless gloves that I use every winter.
Knitted and crocheted items are trending big time right now.
And if you’re skilled in making adorable and handy items, then I really encourage you to think about starting to sell your work.
You can sell beautiful centerpieces for tables, cute mini clothing for dogs. pillowcases, slippers, bags, and a whole lot more.
But the trending items right now are: blankets, hats, sweaters, scarves, beanies, and socks.
People absolutely love throw pillows as a way to complement the style they’ve got going on in their home.
They’re not so much used to sleep on, but rather for aesthetic purposes.
This can be tied back to the Boho-Chic and Farmhouse trends that we talked about earlier.
You can make throw pillows as another great accessory to add to those styles.
But even with Boho-Chic and Farmhouse aside, throw pillows can be made for literally any style.
All you have to do is use a print-on-demand company.
There are so many to choose from, so do your research, but we personally love using Printful and Gooten.
With a print on demand company, you can create throw pillows with your designs without having to deal with manufacturing or shipping.
You might even want to experiment with several different styles and designs to see which one’s sell the most.
Pet owners love their pets, and definitely love spoiling them.
This isn’t just a thing for this year, but it’s all the time.
They’re always searching for great products for their furry companions, and pet toys are one of the items at the top of the list.
You can use cheap materials to make good quality toys like rope plastic, water bottles, or yarn.
With rope, for example, you can make a homemade tug-of-war toy.
You can put a plastic water bottle inside a plush soft toy for a dog to safely chew on.
You can use yarn to crochet fun toys, and even add a little squeaker on the inside.
There are tons of creative ideas, you can experiment with, to make a furry friends day.
And there you have it.
Those were the top 10 handmade products to sell in 2022.
