Kicking off our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 we’ve got workout gear.
Sure, we’ve gone pretty broad with the first entry on our list, but there’s a good reason for that.
We simply couldn’t narrow it down and just choose a single piece of workout gear as the best.
Because workout gear in general is super popular in winter.
And that might be a little bit surprising at first. But think about it – lots of people set themselves new fitness goals around the turn of the year, which is exactly why they bunch of new workout gear.
Just look at this Google Trends data below.
As you can see, searches for the term “workout gear” spike from December to January consistently every year.
And more people searching for workout gear online means more people who are interested in purchasing these products.

All you need to do is add these products to your store, and we’re sure you’ll be able to find success selling them.
Alright, we’re carrying the sports theme with the next addition to our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 – skiing gloves.
Now, as you can see in the Google Trends data below, these are highly seasonal products.
There are massive spikes in search volume for these products which happen every year around the end of November.

Next up on our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 we’ve got winter hats.
Of course, it’s no surprise that these products are super popular during the colder months.
But there are many more reasons to sell these products than the change in temperature.
For starters, they’re typically light and relatively small, which means they’re eligible for ePacket shipping. That means faster and cheaper shipping for your buyers.
They’re also available in a wide range of styles, colors, and materials, which means that there will be plenty of products to choose from when you’re looking to add some to your store.
They’re pretty cheap to source too, so you’ll be able to make decent margins when you’re selling these products, even when you’re selling them at a fair price to your buyers.
Combine all of these factors, and it’s clear – winter hats are one of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020.
Reusable bags are next up on our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020.
That’s because sustainable shopping is on the rise. And we aren’t just talking about clothing here.
Buyers across the globe are becoming more and more conscious of how their shopping habits are affecting the world.
And that’s exactly why people are looking to eco-friendly options like these products.
Just look at the worldwide searches for “reusable bags” over the past 5 years.
The number of searches is only going up. That means more and more people are looking for these products.
Factor this in with the fact that the holiday season, which includes Thanksgiving and Christmas, usually involves family dinners that are too big to finish in one sitting, and you’ve got a recipe for success.
Think about it – these products are going to be super useful for the prep work that goes into those dinners and for keeping any leftovers fresh.

Up next on our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 we’ve got alarm clocks.
Now, you might be wondering why we’re recommending that you sell alarm clocks, especially when lots of people use their smartphones as an alarm clock.
But using your smartphone as an alarm clock might not be the best idea.
In fact, lots of people believe that sleeping in the same room as your smartphone has negative health benefits, including disrupted sleep, and lower quality sleep.
And if you check out the Google Trends data below, there’s plenty of interest in these products.
Over the past five years, searches for alarm clocks in the United States have decreased a little, but there are spikes in searches for these products every year in December.
We don’t know if those are people searching for gifts to buy for the holiday season, or if it’s people shopping for themselves.
What we do know is that there is clear interest in these products.
And we know that you could be the entrepreneur who takes advantage of that interest and turns it into sales.
We really couldn’t make a list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 without including Christmas decorations, could we?
But let me be clear, you don’t need to build a whole new store to fit these products into your inventory list.
In fact, there are so many different products out there that you’ll be able to find some Christmas decorations that fit into your store, no matter what you’re selling.
As an example, if you’re running a women’s clothing business, you could add some novelty Christmas earrings to your store.
Or, if you’re running a men’s clothing store, you could add some Christmas themed socks to your store.
And, of course, if you’re selling homeware products, there are so many different table decorations that you can add to your store.
Take the time to find some products that fit your niche, and prepare your store for the holiday shopping spree.
Plush toys are next up on our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020.
These dropshipping products are fantastic because they’re available at fairly low price points, which means that you can make some decent margins when you’re selling them, and they’re the type of product that is often bought without much research.
That’s known as an impulse purchase, and that’s exactly what you should optimize your marketing campaigns for.
There are so many buyers out there who are looking for gifts like plush and inflatable toys for younger children during the holidays.
And once they see an ad from your store, promoting products like these, they’ll know exactly what to get their loved ones.
A plush product, from your online store. So add some plush toys to your store, and see if you can find success with them this winter.
We’ve got a really handy product up next on our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020.
It’s the vacuum container.
These products are perfect for those people who are out and about in the cold weather during the winter months.
That’s because they keep hot drinks like tea of coffee, hot, so you can keep warm on your commute to work, or while you’re out shopping for Christmas presents.
They also fall in line with the push towards more sustainable products, just like the reusable bags we mentioned above, because people who use these products will likely use less plastic cups while they’re out and about.
And that’s exactly the type of messaging that’ll be ideal for your marketing campaigns – aside from the core functionality of the product.
We recommend promoting these products with video marketing campaigns which show people outside in the winter weather enjoying a hot beverage.
Mulled wine anybody?
Target those Facebook video ads to people who are interested in sustainability pages, and who are also fans of popular hot drinks in the regions you’re running your ads in, and it’ll be a matter of time until you start landing sales.
Scarves are undoubtedly one of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020.
It’s simple. These products are super useful during the cold winter months.
They can add a bit of style to any outfit, and they keep your neck warm and cosy.
They’re fashionable and functional.
And they’re perfect for dropshippers too. They’re eligible for ePacket shipping, which will help you to get your products to your customers quickly and save money.
They’re available in a wide range of styles, much like the winter hats that we mentioned earlier, so you’ll certainly be sure to find some products that fit if you’re selling clothing online.
Give scarves a try this winter – they’re high-potential products and we can’t wait to see you succeed by selling them.
Rounding off our list of the best dropshipping products to sell in winter 2020 we’ve got a classic.
It’s winter boots.
