There are certain products we’ve all seen for the first time and wanted them right away. That is the kind of product you want to sell and hopefully, you’ll find in this article.
With so much competition online these days it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. Selling something unique is one of the best ways to find cracks in the market.
Before I wrote this article I decided to Google what other websites were recommending for unique products to sell online. I wasn’t having much luck.
I was finding products such as jewelry, shoes, water bottles, coffee machines, fitness equipment and so on. Don’t get me wrong, consumers want these products and they sell, although you will face an abundance of competitors and differentiating yourself will be difficult.
For some more niche ideas, I have an article of over 400 profitable niches to sell online.

Why Should You Sell Unique Products Online?
The obvious reason you should sell unique products is less competition. It’s as simple as if fewer people think about selling it then fewer people will actually sell it. The next big one is you ideally want to sell products that aren’t easily accessible at most shopping centers.
You can provide the best customer experience possible for your online store, but that won’t compare to the experience of buying it from a brick-and-mortar store. Depending on the type of product it is, most consumers would rather touch, feel and see a product in person before they purchase it.
This is why apparel is the most returned product online. It can be hard to know how it feels, fits and whether it even looks good on you just by looking at an image on a screen and on a model for that matter!
For this reason, it’s always best to sell unique products online that are not easily found at most shopping centers. If a consumer can buy a product at their local department store, why would they buy it from you? They get less of a buying experience, they have to wait for delivery, returning the product is more of a hassle and it can often be more expensive.
The next big advantage to selling unique products is advertising can be far more effective if you plan to advertise on any of the major social media platforms such as Facebook, TikTok or Instagram. Selling on these platforms is known as “interruption marketing”.
People are not usually on such platforms to make a purchase so it’s your job to interrupt them and stop them in their tracks. Unique products with some kind of wow factor or unique selling point is often the thing that will stop a person from scrolling through their social media feed and take notice of your ad.
Always consider what will pique someone’s interest and curiosity when deciding on a product to advertise. You will find the click through rate (CTR) on these types of products will be far higher.
How to Find Unique Products to Sell
I’m going to assume if you’re reading this article you want to find unique products that everyone else is not already selling. If so, don’t use product research tools.
You will find some unique products using these tools, however, the problem is other people are often using these tools too. This means other people will also be selling them.
I have used several product research tools and from my experience, Sell the Trend is the best and the only one I use.
I hate to break it to you but the best way of finding unique products to sell is to use your brain. Look at all the people in your life and what they’re doing and you’ll be surprised at the ideas you come up with:
- What sports and hobbies are they interested in?
- What makes them happy?
- What problems do they have and what products would help their problems?
- What do they have around their house?
- What have they spent money on in the past?
For example, I have a friend who is sound proofing a room in their home. I then looked into this and found since real-world issues have arisen, more people are working from home and trying to sound proof parts of their houses.
I then realized to do this they need specially designed wall panels called acoustic panels. On Google trends, acoustic paneling has been in high demand since early 2020. This is why I included it in my list, it is a unique product most people wouldn’t consider selling and people are searching for it online.
I have an article with a huge list of AliExpress products to sell for some additional ideas.

A hydrofoil board is almost like a futuristic surfboard. The bottom section is in the water whilst the upper section hovers above the water.
Products in the hobby and sports niche can be profitable as the audience is very passionate and only want the best equipment, this also ties into a person’s status and ego too.

There are many different kinds of wooden beehives with some you can simply turn a tap on and pour honey directly into a jar.

I think everyone hates cutting lawns and this is the ultimate problem-solving product to sell.
Simply charge these up and let them take care of the rest.

Providing a simple storage solution for family cars or shelving for work vans.

An auto-cleaning pet litter box is a unique and problem solving product.
As well as being self cleaning, many of these litter boxes connect to a phone and monitor a cat’s health.

These can be used to clean fish tanks as well as farm animal’s drinking water.

Wi-Fi weather stations provide an array of detailed information regarding temperature and weather.
This can be a product targeted towards weather nerds or even gardeners, etc. as certain plants require specific conditions to flourish.
27. Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are heavier than usual blankets and are supposed to reduce anxiety and stress.
There are different types and weights which can be sold.
Alcohol isn’t exactly unique but it is a unique product to sell online. I recommend selling high-end luxury alcohol as it just is not viable to be shipping beer for example.
For more information check out my article on How to dropship alcohol.
A product not many people would consider selling as an online business.
The issue would be shipping as they are relatively large which means this niche may not be viable in some countries.

They are an easy way to grow edible greens without the need to own a garden.

USB baby bottle heaters are a unique product that is growing in sales on AliExpress but I am yet to see it in any brick and mortar stores.
This solves a problem and is a product just about every postnatal mom could use.

They vary in size a lot and can be as big as any cinema screen.

There is an abundance of other products and accessories that can be sold in this niche.

There are multiple pieces of clothing you can sell from jackets, gloves and scarves.

A survival kit is a product most people don’t think to sell yet a product most families would need/want.
