Now investing in crypto may not be your typical fall business idea but it also qualifies because while people seek ways to spend money in the Fall season, you can start a cryptocurrency investment to help you create income that you will spend during the holidays.
If you have never heard of cryptocurrency before, it is a digital currency that was created on a technology called Blockchain. Blockchain runs on the basic fact that all parties in a transaction have access to that transaction and so there is no opportunity for defrauding anyone.
Cryptocurrency unlike fiat currencies that you hold is not subject to inflationary measures since they are not controlled by the government. It is a trustworthy way of building assets
Cryptocurrencies are traded on an exchange just like Forex is. The buyer or seller buys or sells according to their studies on the movement or demand of such currencies.
There are several ways to make money with Cryptocurrency.
- Active Trading on a Cryptocurrency exchange like Coinbase
- Buy a Crypto asset and hold it for a while, when it appreciates, you sell it and take the profit.
- Learn about Crypto and earn some Crypto assets

Selling a care package that is specially designed to show love and affection to specific groups of people will be a good business idea.

4 Sell Winter Fashion accessories & Clothing
One of the reasons I love Fall is because it comes with its own fashion accessories and clothing that connotes its own style and is really beautiful to look at.
Because the season presets winter, the leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping so there is a rise in demand for fashion accessories and clothing like scarves, (knitted woolen scarves) shawls, mufflers, Ponchos, Hand Gloves, socks, Tweed Jackets, winter jackets, Hoodies, Leggings, and Tote handbags for carrying all that extra stuff especially if you are a mom.
All these are accessories and clothing that will make the millennial person rock the season.
You can tap into this huge market by either Drop-shipping such items in an online store like Shopify.

5 Gift Shopping, Wrapping and Delivery Service.
As we enter the Fall season, we usually call it the “ember” months in my local parlance.
It seems like the days begin to gallop in anticipation of the various holidays that will be coming up, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Boxing day, Hanukkah, etc.
All these festivities portend the exchange of gifts and delivery too, hence a seasonal business that does gift shopping, wrapping, and delivery will be a good combo that people will be willing to subscribe to.
Think of how busy people can be that they soon forget to get their loved ones gifts until the holidays arrive.
This is often the reason for the mad rush at shopping malls during festive seasons, in fact for me I think that that the mad rush is often stressful.
Instead of enjoying the holiday, you are busy scurrying around for the best gift for a friend or a family member.
Starting a business that takes the stress off families can make a whole lot of difference.
Due to the COVID19 onslaught, a lot of people will be shopping online instead of offline, they will also be using the services of shoppers to avoid the crowd.
Starting an online Gift wrapping and shopping service online may be the best way to help people during this season and make some money.
To start an online gift wrapping service, you need to know how to build a website for your online business.
My course WordPress Without Tears is designed to teach Newbies like you how to build your first WordPress site without tearing your hair out.

6 Sale and Rental of Winter Equipment
For this option, I will like to include both types of equipment. Equipment for removing snow and winter-based sports equipment.
I deliberately added sales and rental together because not everyone will like to buy a piece of equipment for a season.
You have the opportunity where you can either sell or rent such equipment then you can have two streams of seasonal income.
Example of such equipment for winter sports includes snowboards, skiing equipment, and accessories, skating boards, etc.
Secondly, you have snow removal equipment like Snowplow, Salt spreaders, Liquidisers, and pushback blades.
These are heavy machinery though so you have to understand the business before you go into it.
7 Home Winterizing services
This is a critical need for homes during the winter period.
As the period arrives, there is a high demand for services like this.
Last year, I think it was in December my kids couldn’t go to school for a whole week because a pipe had burst.
That one mishap cost the school a whole lot of money and lost revenue.
They were shut down for a whole week and they had to rebuild about 3 classes because the burst pipe had damaged the floors and caused a lot of havoc.
They had to have an inspector in-house to make sure they were ready to resume activities.
I bet that if they had taken time to winterize the facility, they would have reduced the chances of what happened.
Services like this can mean a lot of saved finances down the line.
So you can understand why such a service will bring in the needed cash during this season.
Winterizing services can include, closing drafts on windows, doors, and anywhere that has a loophole to reduce the loss of warmth hence reducing your energy bills.
Weatherproof your pipes to prevent bursting due to icing.
Have general instructions placed in strategic places to remind house owners on how to ensure that their homes remain weatherproof for the season?
Offering on-demand repair services where there is a need for it during the season.
8. Holiday Home Decoration.
Who doesn’t love the decors that you see on homes during the festive season?
Christmas lights anyone? Those are the things that make Christmas what it is, but then it’s someone’s business to put it up.
That’s where you can start a seasonal home business that will help people decorate their homes for the season, be it Christmas, Hanukkah, or Thanksgiving.
Starting on time to make your services available and getting people to pay monthly before the day arrives ensures that you have the number of homes you can handle on the ground before the 1st of December arrives.
Early booking means you are sure of your income and you can do what is necessary to deliver when the time comes.
I love those lighted Reindeers on the lawns, they make Christmas so endearing.
9 Baking Holiday Treats.
If you are someone who loves to bake, this may be the time to monetize your baking skills by offering packaged holiday cookies and all types of treats to friends and family and also others who may be interested.
Once they have tasted it and it’s worth the amount you are offering, they will surely be willing to pay for you to bake and deliver to their homes during the Christmas holidays.
It sure will beat buying from the stores and they have the opportunity to customize to their tastes.

10 Party Planning and organizing for the Fall Season.
During the Fall season, we get to start the preparation for all kinds of parties that will take place during the holiday season.
From office parties to Thanksgiving dinners to children’s Christmas parties, wedding anniversary parties and you just name it.
If you have a knack for organizing and throwing a great party, now is the time to begin to put together a plan on how to turn your talent into a business this season.
Getting your client at this time will ensure that you have a long time enough to prepare for the events that will hold.
If this is a home business that suits you, it can become an all-season thing though you will find that most of your sales come during the Winter and Fall season.
11 Christmas Tree Rental.
The season of Christmas is a season that everyone wants to have a tree with all those lights on it and the gifts wrapped under it.
Starting a Christmas tree rental service can be a great way to cash into the season to make some income.
You can throw in decorating the tree as an extra service if people want to pay for it.
I know most families love to decorate their Christmas tree themselves, I mean where is the fun of having a tree if someone else decorates it for you?
But then there are those who might just like a tree put up for them because they can’t decorate it themselves.
For example, the elderly may not be able to hang that lighting anymore.
There are also people who don’t like to decorate a tree at all.
Offering that service of decorating the tree could be an add-on which they will appreciate.
During the Christmas of 2015, I did my Christmas decoration and tree decoration with the help of my sister, it was still a lot of work.
After all the décor, my daughter who was about one year plus kept plucking the shiny balls that I hung on it, she taught it was a fruit.
Before Christmas day arrived, we only had decorations at the very top where her hands could not reach.
Talk of having a Christmas Tree with sparse hangings, it was very funny.
12 Holiday Home Service.
Do you have a free room or spare room in your home that you are not using?
Now is the time to set it up for and rent it out for Holidaymakers who may not want to go to the average hotel.
You can rent it via Airbnb to make some money.
The beautiful thing about a holiday home rental service is that you have the opportunity to meet diverse people and make new friends while still making money out of it.
13 Holiday Shopper.
Anyone that can relate to holiday shopping knows the hassles and stress it can bring to anyone who has been through it.
Remember the long lines and queues in Walmart and Co, you can save some busy people the hassle and stress by taking on their holiday shopping for them.
All that Turkey buying, food shopping and also clothing shopping can be done by you while the person relaxes at home and watches TV or whatever they need to do during the holidays.
I have always been one to simplify my life hence why I like Blue Apron and the services they offer.
You get your ingredients and recipes all done for you so all you have to do is follow instructions and cook.
Don’t know if there are other Blue Apron-type moms like me but I value the time I spend on my business or family, I don’t like to waste it running needless errands or getting stuck in shop queues.
14 Selling COVID19 Proof Accessories
If there is any product that will be in season for long it is the accessories that help us to protect ourselves against contracting COVID19.
These accessories include face masks, face shields, hand sanitizers, gloves, and PPE, and other room vaporizers and disinfection gears.
During the holidays, while people will still want to celebrate with social distancing rules and safety gear in place. There will be more demand for such products because people will need to go out or gather more.
So, selling items that have to do with COVID19 will still be a business for long until COVID19 becomes less of a threat.
