Moteefe’s Ultimate Holiday Guide: Christmas 

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, get ready to maximize your profits this Christmas! We looked into all the data from last year’s campaigns, and we’re here to deliver you a sack full of the top-trending themes, to inspire you to boost your sales this time of year!

Below are the top recommended niches to focus on, this holiday season:

Family Related

Christmas is the time of the year when family gets together, exchange gifts, and say how much they care for each other: and how better to say it than through a piece of apparel? 

You can design hoodies for all family members: grandparents, parents, uncles, siblings… Just don’t forget, if you’re selling a “grandpa” item, you’re actually targeting the son/grandson who will buy the actual gift! Here are a few ideas: 

Comical Sweaters

Ugly sweater contests have been in tradition for decades, but that doesn’t mean that your apparel has to be an eyesore to look at. Nowadays, funny and comical sweaters appear to be on the rise, especially among parents and Millennials:

Puns / References

Pop culture is the  perfect resource for you to gather inspiration and ideas from. From movie and song references to related puns, everyone in your audience can get a good laugh from this type of designs – don’t forget to be careful with copyright infringements!


If you take a look outside during the month of December, you’ll notice an abundance of lights and decorations, and people love to dress up to match them:

A Further Look…

Christmas is a time for endless possibilities, and the same can be said for your merch designs! Even if you’re not looking to stay up-to-date with modern trends, that’s totally fine, we’ve got you covered with a list of alternative ideas:

  • Santa Clause
  • Snowmen
  • Reindeers
  • Naughty / Nice Jokes
  • Presents
  • Elves

Don’t be a Scrooge! What are you waiting for to launch your brand new xmas campaign focusing on one of these niches? You can always check out Pinterest, Google Shopping, Google Images, Etsy or Amazon for design ideas to get inspired! Just don’t forget, comfy hoodies and sweaters are more in demand than t-shirts this time of year!
