The other day I posted a holiday gift guide for bloggers. In this post, I mentioned that even though December is 2 months away, it's best to get your holiday content published at least 6 weeks before the actual holiday.
You have to give your content time to circulate around the internet before the holidays roll around. I've noticed that for my blog, it takes around 2 months for my content to gain momentum, so I publish my holiday content two months early.
The reason I say all of this is because if you plan on posting holiday content on your blog, now is a good time to start. Especially if you're planning on increasing your blog income this holiday season by creating holiday gift guides.
What Is a Holiday Gift Guide?
A holiday gift guide is a list you put together of your favorite and/or recommended products based on the theme of your gift guide. You then link to those items using your affiliate links.
For example, in my ultimate guide of 75+ Affordable Gift Ideas For Bloggers, you can see how I featured gifts I recommend for bloggers and then linked to those products with my affiliate links.
Gift guides are a great way to boost your blog income because (1) people like to shop (2) people like to shop even more during the holidays, and (3) people love when shopping is made easy with custom tailored gift guides (this is definitely true for me).

If you want to increase your holiday income by creating gift guides, here are a few ideas to get you started (make sure you alter these titles with something more eye-catching):
