Selling digital products is easier than selling physical products, however, not all people are looking for digital products specially for people who like handicrafts and DIYs.

So in this post I’m going to share with you some physical products that you can sell easily and I’m sure you’ll find customers easily.

Now let’s jump into the idea of this list:

This list consists of “Tool kits” which means you are providing the materials for the customers and they DIY a craft at home. So you need to think about the base cost, packaging and a place to put the products.

Without further ado, let’s start with the ideas of products that sell:

1)Jewelry making Toolkit:

This is probably one of the most famous toolkits that sells well on Etsy. People want to DIY jewelry however they don’t want to buy a lot of accessories’ materials without making sure they will stick to it. That’s why they prefer to try it with a smaller amount of tools and directions to test their abilities and interests.

What to include in the toolkit?

Beads-chains- directions- pictures of finished products-tips-business card with more products you sell.

2)Soap making Toolkit:

This one is also famous, and many people love to try making soap at home. You can purchase soap from amazon or ebay, then divide it into bags with other items that your customers can use to make their soaps.

What to include in the toolkit?

Soap “preferably shredded because people are lazy” scent – mold – extra items depending on the theme “glitter/soap coloring/shells/toys….etc”

3)Candle making Toolkit:

This is also one of the famous toolkits that people seek and buy often. Many people out there want to craft their own scented candles, but again they don’t want to spend a lot of money on big quantities of wax and tools. This is your chance to make their crafting passion come true and make extra money. You should buy the quantities of wax, scents, containers, candle colors.

What to include in the toolkit?

Wax – container – wicks – candle scents – candle color – candle pouring pot

4)Bath bomb making Toolkit:

Making bath bombs can be interesting for people who like aromatherapy or relaxing or having a spa environment at home. It’s easy to put the ingredients together and sell them. All you need is to have the bomb making kit and divide it into different bags to sell them individually.

What to include in the toolkit?

Bath bomb materials “powder” – mold – coloring drops – scents

5)Hair accessories Toolkit:

Many mothers including me seek a specific look of hair accessories or even like to DIY some. Putting together the items to DIY the hair accessories for themselves or their daughters at home.

What to include in the toolkit?

Hair bands – hair clips – scrunchies – beads – ribbons – glitter glue

6)Crochet/Knitting Toolkit:

Many love to crochet or knit, and there are many cute patterns out there that people wish to try but can’t be bothered to check the yarn they need or the hook size or search for the directions. This is where you put all of what they need in one toolkit. Putting the directions of a pattern with the equipment needed will save them time and effort.

What to include in the toolkit?

Printed pattern – Yarn – Hook – cutting tool/scissors – stitch marker

7)Home decor Toolkit:

In one of my posts I mentioned different things to do in a summer bucket list, including decorating the house through DIY small stuff. Now you can take this in your advantage by putting together items which people can use to DIY some home decor stuff such as: painting an indoor plant pot – decorating a cushion – painting on rocks…etc.

What to include in the toolkit?

Paint – brushes – sealant – glue – decorating materials – the items to decorate – sheet of instructions.

How to price these kits?

Count the following costs:

Materials – expenses – labor – profit = total

Multiply the total by 2 and that’s the price you can charge for.

And here comes the award-winning question: why would people buy from me when there are cheaper ones?

In this case you should realize then people might not have the chance to check all prices and because of that they don’t know how cheaper others are.

Adding to that here are a few tips that would make people buy from you:

Including a video of you working on the same craft with excellent light source “sunlight works well” and chilling background music, people get encouraged when they see others working.

Include colorful pictures or include memes about the products to make people laugh, then get excited to buy your products.

Including a professional business card or sheet of directions makes you look above many others.

Use some colorful stickers or branded ones to make people see you more professional.

Show people how the items look packaged or unpackaged.

If you can start a social media account to advertise or YouTube channel to do studio vlogs “even without talking, just watching you packaging with a background music”, then go ahead as people love these a lot. 

To conclude that topic:

There are many ways to make money by selling kits. 

When you choose the right kits to sell, they will sell like hot cakes.

You can sell some of these kits as ideas to start with until you have more ideas and start creating your own:

1)Jewelry making Toolkit:

2)Soap making Toolkit:

3)Candle making Toolkit:

4)Bath bomb making Toolkit:

5)Hair accessories Toolkit:

6)Crochet/Knitting Toolkit:

7)Home decor Toolkit:

Pricing the products doesn’t have to be difficult if you followed the formula I provided above.

Don’t worry, people will buy your products if you cared enough about the look and advertising.

Now then, If you sold kits before or thought about selling them then what are your ideas?
