#1. Kitchen Items With Charm
Kitchen products continue to be high-interest items, but kitchen related products with charm or personality to them are incredibly popular right now. And what’s great about this niche is you can find and source a lot of unique items that people are willing to pay more for as a result.
#2. Beauty Items
Beauty items can include products such as makeup, accessories, skin care, and can also have a specific focus such as being all organic or natural. This is another super popular niche to get into.
#3. Organic Health Foods
Organic foods are continuing to rise in popularity. And people are “hungry” for organic, healthy, snack options for themselves, their family or to give as gifts. And people often seek out unique items that offer something special which is why drop shipping can work so well for these types of products.
#4. High Quality Travel Products
The travel products niche is great because you can once again, find a particular niche (think business traveler or outdoor adventure) you’re most interested in to find great products that people are looking to buy. People seem to be happy spending more and more money if they can find something that’s really high quality and unique.
#5. Unique Tech Accessories
The right tech accessories sell themselves! They are often inexpensive which make them easy impulse buys. And people are often looking for unique tech related gifts to give to their ‘techie’ friends.
#6. Power Tools
Power tools at first glance may not seem like a great item to drop ship because of their weight. However, even with shipping costs the margins can be good enough to make these a great product to sell online. More and more people are buying power tools because of the growing popularity of DIY projects, making this a great niche to consider.
Some ideas to consider are focusing on one particular category within this niche such as only dropshipping cordless power tools.
#7. Drones and Accessories
Drones and their related accessories are a super hot category for dropshipping. According to market analytics, in 2016 the drone category was valued at $1.17 billion. The value continues to climb and current estimations are that it will reach $5.41 billion by 2022.
