Every year the average consumer wants different things. If you keep an eye on the constantly shifting tastes of the market then you can know what would make a good one-size-fits-all Christmas present, find a niche to make a bit of money from or simply see something that catches your eye that you fancy. Here are five from this, the year 2019.
Charcoal Beauty Products
A cursory glance at the majority of former Love Island contestants Instagram will tell you all you need to know about the sales pitches directly related to charcoal beauty products. In toothpastes, it acts as a natural whitening agent and in face creams, it purifies the skin. It’s a product that peaked in 2017 and has seen a plateau last year but still remains up there with the most popular beauty products of 2018. Most of these types of products can easily be gotten hold of in most countries and good sites to use are Epacket Delivery and dropship.
These are pins that just don’t seem to want to go away for too long. They go away, get lonely and float back to the surface of the public marketplace. These things have been around for years and have enjoyed popularity throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s and were tipped to be making a comeback in 2018 as they have been steadily on the increase in popularity for a few years now. They are easily personalised and can be sold cheaply in bulk in case you were thinking of making a quick buck out of them.
This one will come as no surprise to anyone who has spent any time in a university dorm room at any point. Their aesthetic is appealing to most people as it’s hard to argue that they are pretty. This ubiquitous prettiness has been capitalised upon by users of Instagram and Pinterest and now thanks to the pictures of how easily this product can jazz up a room doing the rounds on social media, fairy lights have made a slow but sure comeback.
Virtual Reality Helmets
You knew this one was coming, didn’t you? The absolute hallmark of technological innovation in the last few years is still the must-have Christmas present for little and big kids all around the world. Once you’ve had a go on one you’ll realise why. It’s the kind of experience we always wondered whether we’d be alive to experience and despite the price tags leaping riotously from £99 to £5,000, expect to see these products dominating the consumer market for the next few years at least.
We end on something more classic that has found its way back into the public’ hearts somehow. Journaling is nothing new but the ways in which they are being marketed currently, are. In 2018 there is a trend amongst people to want to look after their physical and mental health and practice mindfulness, wellness, gratefulness and all the other nesses. So some journals are marketed as ‘The Happiness Planner’ or ‘The Anxiety Journal’ and are meant to be spiritually nourishing. This is definitely a trend with legs so if you can think of ways people can help themselves through journaling now is the time to monetise that idea.
