New Year Predictions: Top Trending Products to Sell in 2021

The new year has officially started and we’re looking forward to what’s in store! 

2020 was a challenging year, but the future's looking brighter in 2021, with hopes that we can start getting back to some version of normal by summertime. 

As we slowly get back to normal, we expect some of the current pandemic trends to continue, but we also expect a shift in consumer behavior during the second half of the year. 

Many of the changes brought on by the pandemic are likely here to stay, like the trends we see with many people working from home, adopting a pet, and trading in the city for the suburbs. However, as it becomes safe and people start to venture out more, we expect to see a resurgence in sales of previously popular products like clothing and shoes.  

Keep reading for our predictions about the hottest product trends coming in 2021.

Wireless Charging Stations

Remote working and learning were a huge trend in 2020 and Upwork’s “Future of Workforce Pulse Report” released this month predicts 1 in 4 Americans will continue to work remotely in 2021 - a significant increase over previous years. 

Remote work is here to stay, and products that make it easier and more convenient to work from home will continue to be popular this year. 

One of our top-selling work from home items is this wireless charging station. It’s a game-changer when it comes to working at home, keeping multiple devices charged throughout the day, and minimizing clutter.  Stock up on these for an item that’s sure to sell well in 2021.

Footwear & Clothing

Footwear and fashion are expected to bounce back this year as people get back to some of their pre-COVID activities.

The category was especially hard hit when the pandemic started last year and people started opting for sweatpants and athleisure over jeans and office wear, but things are looking positive for a resurgence in fashion for 2021. 

We’ve seen an increase in searches for shoes this month, and these sneakers have been one of our best-selling items.

We predict footwear will continue to be a top search in 2021 and recommend stocking up now to get ahead of the trend!

Cooking & Grilling Tools

Many people have taken up home cooking as a quarantine hobby, especially as some local areas limit restaurant dining. We’ve seen an increase in searches for grilling tools, and our 5-piece stainless steel grilling set has been one of the most popular items this month.  

We predict grilling and cooking tools will continue to sell well in 2021, especially as we head into the warmer months in Spring and Summer.

Handcrafted & DIY Products

Handmade items that can be personalized, such as DIY jewelry and home decor, will be trending in the new year. Shoppers will be looking to support small businesses and artisans, as well as purchase ethically made products. 

If you have a handmade jewelry business or boutique, 2021 is your year to shine!  We recommend stocking up on beads, crystals, and DIY jewelry tools and creating personalized design options, like necklaces with zodiac sign pendants or name letters. 

Keep an eye out for these trends in 2021! We’ll also be keeping you updated on the latest top-selling products throughout the year here on the blog, so check back for the most current trends. 

We’re optimistic that 2021 is going to be a great year ahead!  What trends are you predicting in the new year?
