50 Christmas Blog Post Ideas

It’s always a challenge to come up with original ideas for your Christmas blog posts, as it seems like everything has already been done. But you can always adapt Christmas blogging ideas by putting your own slant on them, and choosing ones that will work especially well for your niche.

So I thought I’d put together a few ideas to help you create some new and innovative blog posts in time for the festive season.

Festive Sales

In the run up to the holidays there are always lots of sales, so if you sell products or services through your blog, it might be a good idea to hold a festive sale. Everyone is looking for a way to reduce costs just before Christmas!

If you don’t sell products yourself, you could do some research and create a really useful post about the festive sales that other people are holding.

Gift Guides

Gift guides are always popular at this time of year, and you can create a special gift guide that is tailored specifically for your niche: gifts for new parents, gifts for hang-gliding enthusiasts, gifts for dog lovers etc.

If you have an affiliate programme set up with any product suppliers in your niche this is an excellent way to increase your affiliate sales – feature the products you promote in a festive gift guide (don’t forget you’ll need the usual affiliate disclaimer).

There are some people who are really difficult to find gifts for (the guy who has everything, the person you don’t really know, the woman who moans about all gifts, the guy who returns all his gifts etc.) so a gift guide for these people that is related to your niche could be very useful.

Share The Blogging Christmas Love

If you can find other bloggers in your niche who are also publishing Christmas stuff, you could create a “round up” blog post linking to their Christmas posts.

Email each blogger you feature to let them know that they’re included, and you might even get some links back in return.

  1. I love these topic suggestions! I do a gift guide every year, however I find it hard to pick out other things I can write about during the season. I will be using a few of these!
