5 Christmas Jobs You Can Do

5 Christmas jobs you can do this Christmas. Hey Everyone, it’s the festival season, and today I am going to share 5 temporary jobs you can do – to earn some extra cash. The great thing about these jobs is that you don’t have to be an expert in them, no training etc. All you need to know is, what is out there, social media account and a business card.

5 Christmas Jobs, You Can Do

Gift Shopper

This will be very handy for those who work full time and does not have enough time to go gift shopping. Gift shoppers will look around for the budgeted price and get you what you want. It’s like a Personal Shopper but this time you are only shopping for gifts. Read blogs for inspiration, window shopping, etc. There are some people who know what they want but do not know how to get it at a cheaper price.

Christmas Home Decorator

This idea actually came to my mind when I thought about how I am going to decorate my new apartment this Christmas. Then I thought, ‘ why not get a Christmas decorator?’ Then I ask myself: ‘Is that even a job?’ Turns out that it is a job but mainly for companies. Now that Sucks! If you are a creative person, then you can do this job. I mean, if you have an eye for detail and can transform a room by adding some cushions, candles, and Neon Mama signs, or you are good at decorating the Christmas tree, the Dining table, or the whole house then you can get paid a commission. You can even gather a couple of your friends to help!

Personal Shopper

I can not imagine how much money Person Shoppers makes this time of the year. I know most people are shopping online now, however, there are some people who still prefer a personal shopper. These people are busy working and creating memories with families and friends, and they would hire a personal shopper to do their groceries shopping, outfits for upcoming events, etc.

Gift Wrapper

I don’t know about you, but I can not wrap a gift perfectly. I’ve never had to until my daughter was born. Do you know what mess I have done over the last few years? I just spent money buying expensive wrapping papers that are glittery and shining, and just take a sellotape and just stick the ends together. Sasha-Ann had been able to have a sneak look at what was inside the wrapping paper! And nowadays, people are so busy wrapping presents, at least I know I am. So I would happily pay someone to wrap my gifts perfectly.


Believe it or not, Christmas is the right time to show off your hidden talent. Whether it is dancing, singing, baking, comedian, magician, art, etc. Whatever is your hidden talent, this is the season to show it off. If you have been waiting all year for your big break or waiting for an opportunity, trust me – the time is NOW. Even if you can not afford the equipment, or whatever excuses you may have. Go get it done – and most importantly, HAVE FUN.

I hope you enjoyed that.

Talk Soon.

  • Clarice

    These are great ideas. I usually do home decorating as a side gig a couple of years ago and it’s fun and rewarding. I highly recommend this for someone who’s looking for a Christmas job. Surprisingly, a lot of people do not have the time to decorate.

  • The Sunny Side Lifestyle Co.

    For someone with extra time and talent to perform these jobs this is the season! Locally, we have a very talented holiday decorator that will outfit your home for the holidays. My partner and I were discussing this as the ultimate splurge that we would love but can’t yet afford to indulge in. Guess I’ll have to hit Michael’s and do it myself this year.

  • Lene

    terrific ideas to make some extra money on the side (or money, period). This isn’t so busy that anyone would appreciate being able to delegate even just part of the preparations to someone else. (Raising hand)

  • Despite Pain

    What brilliant ideas for people to earn extra money at Christmas. I’m like you – I buy shiny wrapping paper and sellotape the parcel. Not exactly interesting or attractive. I’d love to be let loose decorating someone’s home, using their money. That would be a perfect job.

  • Kelly Martin

    I’d love to be a gift shopper but the Christmas crowds in the shopping centres can be pretty stressful. I once worked as a gift wrapper and I’d love to do that again.

    • Lindsay Brown

      I love these ideas! I’ve never thought of a personal gift shopper – what a great idea! I bet some people could definitely use such a service.

      I’ve always wanted to be a good wrapper at the mall – I don’t know why I just think it looks like a fun job!

  • Stephanie

    All of these jobs make great side hustles! Professional Christmas decorators can be in high demand too. You don’t even necessarily need to be an interior designer. You could build clientele by posting photos of your own home’s decoration to drum up business.

  • Scott J DeNicola

    Little known secret but I am an awesome gift wrapper. I worked for Macy’s for many years as an operations manager and oversaw gift wrap. I had to fill in during the holidays to keep people moving so I honed my wrapping skills. Personal shopping is a great idea as well. I have seen companies now that even hang your outside lights for the holidays.
