Folksy Ltd

WANTED: Christmas Gift Guide Ideas

We need your help! We want to create a collection of new gift guides, but we want them to be as niche (or specialist) as possible.

Once we have a list we’re going to create the new guides on Folksy, featuring relevant items, and promote them using paid social adverts and Google Shopping ads.

So we need ideas that are 1) based around interests 2) that have enough items on Folksy that fit the theme 3) that people search for but where there isn’t currently huge competition. An example might be “Gifts for Crocheters” - although there’s quite a lot of competition for that one.

Can you help us with your suggestions - we’re just looking for Gift Guide ideas at this stage, not items to go in them.

Collectable Artist Bears
Collectable Dolls
Hand Embroidered Gifts
Sewing Kits/craft kits.

I know these are all things I make but I rarely see bears or dolls on the front page of Folksy and they need to be seen :blush:Sewing or craft kits are great for Christmas and could have a huge range of different products in the guide,

Heirloom gifts…again thats were my bears and dolls could pop up :grinning::grin:
Kits for children maybe, I don’t know if there are any as I havn’t looked.

Hi Debby. Thanks for all these ideas so far. We’re ideally looking for really niche terms because if they’re broad like ‘Gift Sets’ we won’t have any chance of ranking for them on Google. We’re also specifically looking for phrases that people will be searching for as Christmas gifts. So maybe something like 'Gift Ideas for Crafty Kids". Sorry if I haven’t been clear enough in my original post.

No not at all Camilla probably my fault for not reading it properly, you did actually say ‘niche products’.

I would like to suggest Artist bears and Dolls though as there arn’t many featured but I obviously realise what a huge job you have searching through the hundreds of shops so it can’t be easy.

I will keep thinking lol…there are quite a few suggestions on the forum and clubhouse page now which is good, think you may be a tad busy.

Thank you for your email
