Crisp air, changing leaves and pumpkin spice everything… while it’s only the beginning of fall, if you’re a reseller, it’s time to think ahead! Four in 10 people begin holiday shopping by November 1. If you want your shelves (virtual or otherwise) to be stocked for holiday shoppers, it’s time to start sourcing for the season now. 

According to a National Retail Federation survey, consumer spending already surpassed 2018’s numbers for every holiday and seasonal event so far this year. And the upcoming holiday season will be no different. 

Holiday spending reached $998.32 billion last year and is expected to pass that in 2019. So as a small business buyer, how do you cash in on the holiday spending spree? Well, it starts with sourcing inventory that people want. So, what sells well when it comes to gifts?

The NRF says that these are the top 10 types of gifts people plan to give this year: 

  • Clothing & accessories
  • Gift cards & certificates
  • Toys
  • Books & other media
  • Food/Candy
  • Consumer electronics & accessories
  • Personal care & beauty items
  • Home decor & furnishings
  • Cash
  • Jewelry

From clothing and consumer electronics to jewelry and toys, business buyers can source all of these top holiday gifts directly from big-box retailers like Macy’s, Target, Costco, Home Depot, and Walmart on B-Stock. With nine of the top 10 major retailers liquidating goods on marketplaces through us, you’re able to source quality, in-demand merchandise just in time for the holidays.
