Check out the infographic below to see some of the top items to sell online in April. Then learn about all the popular categories, and read about specific products that DealNews readers were drawn to in April 2021.
Tools and Home Improvement Supplies
If you've read any of our other articles on the best products to sell online, you know that tools and home improvement items tend to be good products to sell every month. In fact, their popularity inspired us to publish an article on how to sell tools online.
When we examined DealNews' readers shopping trends from last April, we found that the items in this category that resonated most included bathroom sink faucets, 5" random orbit sanders, and 50-packs of KN95 face masks. Other popular products were biometric door locks, LED lightbulbs, and outdoor solar lights.
Home and Kitchen Products
As people work on home improvement projects around the house, you can also expect them to buy items for their house. Last April, our readers gravitated toward home products like the following:
- Handheld vacuums
- Shoe storage boxes
- Closet system starter kits
- Furniture and mattresses
- Throw blankets
- Mini heat-press machines
Consider selling items specifically for the kitchen, as well. Popular wares in April 2021 included butane kitchen torches, food-grinder and pasta-maker attachments for stand mixers, 6" melting domes, 51-piece flatware sets, and stovetop coffee makers.
Lawn, Garden, and Grilling Items
Like we mentioned earlier, April is a time when people are focusing more on the outdoors, and the popularity of grilling, garden, and lawn items seems to be proof of that! But which of these products should you sell in April, exactly?
On the grilling front, consider listing grill cleaning brushes, as well as kits with grill and griddle accessories. For garden products, you could have good luck with LED grow lights and garden decor. And ideal lawn items could include bags of "weed and feed," weed-killer spray, grass seed mixes, and string trimmer and blower kits.
Clothing and Shoes
If you want to sell clothes in April, men's apparel may be the way to go. Last April, our readers gravitated toward products like men's non-iron dress shirts, 12-packs of men's V-neck T-shirts, and 4-packs of men's crew socks, not to mention men's stretch dress pants.
Men's shoes were popular, too, including clearance athletic shoes and slip-on running shoes. As for shoe brands, our readers went for PUMA and Crocs.
Electronics are on the list again after ranking among the best products to sell online in March. But we know there are tons of electronics to potentially sell, so let's get into specifics. In April, that means looking at 50' fiber-optic HDMI cables, indoor/outdoor video cameras, selfie ring lights with stands, and surge protectors with USB charging ports. Our readers were also drawn to the Apple Watch Series 6 last year, 75" 4K smart TVs, and the 3rd-Gen. Amazon Echo Dot.
The Rest of the Best
Here's a rundown of what else to sell online in April 2022; these were all popular items among DealNews readers last April.
- Automotive products like car vacuum cleaners, portable tire inflators, and car headrest hooks
- Personal care products, such as liquid and foaming hand soap refills, electric toothbrush replacement heads, hair dryers, and hair clipper/trimmer kits

What Are the Big Sales Opportunities in April?
April brings a bevy of holidays, from April Fools' Day to Tax Day, but the two that might be best for promotions are Easter and Earth Day. Easter is on April 17 in 2022, and the weeks leading up to the holiday could be a good time for sales and deals. We've seen some retailers host general Easter sales, while others offer deals on Easter-related items — think candy, decor, toys, books, and pretty much anything that goes in an Easter basket. So even if you don't sell products that are Easter-specific, you can still use the holiday as a time to offer discounts.
Just a few days after Easter this year is Earth Day. The holiday falls on April 22, and again, it could be an excuse for a general sale, coupon, or other promotion. Earth Day could also be a good time to promote your eco-friendly or sustainable items, or ones that use renewable energy. Even gardening and other outdoor-related products could be solid candidates for deals around this time.
