20 YouTube Video Ideas For A Lifestyle Channel


If you have a lifestyle YouTube channel then variety is your friend. People like to see different content on your channel. Often content creators get into such a dilemma at some point where they are not getting new ideas.

In such a situation, they start repeating the same old things. And the uniqueness which was in the channel is no longer there. What to do next? Well!  Let’s explore here.

What Do Lifestyle Videos Consist Of?

Lifestyle videos get quickly viral among people. Such videos consist of daily life activities or anything worth uploading. In addition, YouTubers show insights into their life by sharing different parts of their day.

There are no specific niche lifestyle videos are on. Instead, they can be on a random topic that the YouTuber thinks of, from a day in my life to unboxing or tour. Lifestyle channels can jump on almost every niche.

What Are Lifestyle Videos On YouTube?

YouTubers with no specific niche are known as Lifestyle YouTubers. Videos on such channels are more about the inside view of the YouTuber’s life. They often discuss their personal lives, events they went to, and interests.

It’s all about sharing views and experiences. Such channels also tend to spread awareness among other people. Meanwhile, they have significant influence over the masses.

Topics may vary from travel vlog to anything essential about life. Lifestyle channels are famous because people love watching someone’s life. It’s like an escape from a stressful schedule. Or just a tour someone’s planning and thinking what to expect.

20 YouTube Video Lifestyle Channel Ideas:

Here we have come up with 20 lifestyle channel video ideas that will be of great use to you.

1) Shopping Haul:

The haul is a video where a person shares his experience and views on recently purchased things. They share their non-biased opinion over the purchase and how much it costs.

Shopping Hauls have been popular since YouTube came into being, especially in the beauty segment. You can also combine haul and vlog. It is a great category to work on as you might get sponsorship/affiliations/endorsements. 

There’s only one rule in haul videos; stay true to your audience and don’t be biased because of affiliation.

2) Review any product you use:

Reviewing any product you use daily isn’t a tough job. Right? Because you use it daily, you are aware of its advantages and disadvantages. And, you are more likely to explain your points easily.

Suppose you have been using Aloe Vera gel for, let’s say, five years. And, you have tried many brands, from so-called natural to completely natural.

Now, you know how to differentiate products by seeing their ingredients. Prepare your studio; you got an idea to work on! Review any product you use and feel it’s worth a try.
