How to Make Holiday Cash from Home


People are so busy during this time of year- and there’s not much to do, that they do some things like walking errors, shopping or gift wrapping. One way to find people willing to pay for these services is to network with friends and relatives on both social media and in person.

This and many of the following ideas depend on networking to find customers. If you are interested in becoming a virtual assistant, ask friends and family if they are interested in services, you will know about the offer or others.

Crowdsourcing, micro-employment

Along the same line are short online but completely online micro-jobs. If you only have small bits of time (so often the case during the holidays!) To make money, this may be for you. Microsoft jobs like Amazon’s Mechanical Turk allow people to make money from affiliate jobs like home data entry jobs.

You can do this while using your cell phone, which is easy because we spend a lot of time during the holiday season. These 11 money-making apps can help you make cash while shopping or traveling. To make sure you don’t waste money on them (or time), read these losses first.

Holiday Decorations

People don’t take holiday decorations just for that reason. Because they don’t have time to do it themselves, because they want to look better, more professional. Talent and experience in floral design or interior decoration help to start a holiday decoration business.

Take The Money To The Guests

Capture all the holiday trips that go together this year with a company like Airbnb in house shares. Rent out your house or an apartment or a room in your whole house and make money with your home. Here’s what you need to know to get started with Airbnb.

Sales Arts And Crafts

If you are a crafter with household items collection, the holiday season is the time to sell them. People are in the market for crafts as gifts. During this time of year, what really sells decorations? So use your creativity to create holiday items as accessories, jewelry, and decorations and sell them in holiday markets and festivals. But don’t wait too long to get started Creating an inventory can fill boot spaces initially at craft fairs over time.

Call Center Jobs

If you are not the home business type and you prefer extra screwdrivers during the holiday season then a home call center may be the way to go. Many home call center jobs employ holiday season agents starting in August and September. Check out this list of companies that hire vacation seasonal jobs at home call centers, and read about virtual call center job requirements and qualifications.


Across the country, the weather during the holiday season is not good enough for yard sales. There is one online on eBay with it. Maybe, that online seller is a long-term home business for you, or maybe there is a way to get some cash during the holiday season.

Pet / House Sitting

While moving indoors to another home during the holiday season is not practical for everyone, many vacation travelers do not need full-time coverage for their home. They just want to have a home to stop checking in on a daily basis. Want to pick up miles, turn on the light or take care of low-care pets like cats and fish. Again, the years are ready to pay for the means this time of year.

Child Care

Nursing is not just for teenagers. In fact, families with new parents and families often prefer adults and/or parents to watch their children. With so many holiday parties and events, these parents are often looking for childcare assistance. In addition, with schools closing during the holiday season, many parents require childcare during the Christmas break. Your child’s school or playgroup is a great place to network and offer your childcare services.
