    Christmas themed gifts/souvenirs work well, alongside with the well anticipated new consoles that will soon be released. Therefore there will be a greater demand for ps4/xbox one accessories.

    Thanks. I'm definitely going for toys as well. Just trying to widen my scope for other than that :)

    Christmas themed and souvenirs should work well for all categories? I'll get into this as well. Thanks

    Popular categories? Probably electronics and funny Christmas themed gifts.

    To be honest, most people that knows the actual niche will not tell you because that will drive competition towards their sales.

    Do some digging and exploring. Do some test

    well known niches come with the most risk b.c they can become oversaturated with sellers unless theres a barrier that prevents sellers from buying (i.e. out of stock items) look for obscure items.
