Play festive music, plant the tree, hang the mistletoe … and give your computer or phone a Christmas wallpaper! If you want to get into the holiday spirit, an easy way to do so is to decorate your device with a Christmas wallpaper.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up some of the best Christmas wallpaper websites – Santa, snowmen, stockings, and sleighs abound.
Unsplash is a great site generally for copyright free and copyright free images, but it is full of wonderful photos that make perfect Christmas wallpapers.
If you’re looking for crisp festive images, Unsplash is for you. It has glittering Christmas trees, elegantly landscaped ornaments, winter landscapes, and much more.
Since the images are all in high resolution, they are perfect for your desktop or mobile.
It is very likely that Wallpaper Abyss has the Christmas wallpaper you want. It contains festive pets, nativity scenes, illustrations, decorations and much more. All available in crisp high resolution.
What’s great about Wallpaper Abyss is the breadth of images on offer. There are over 4,100 wallpapers and 2,100 mobile wallpapers. You can filter them (like if you only want 4K images) and sort them by factors like popularity or number of downloads.
Pixaby is another royalty free image site. But don’t let the “stock” put you off because these wallpapers are far from generic. There are over 600 festive photos to choose from.
Each image is in high resolution and there are abstract trees, cartoon reindeer, robin photos, illustrated patterns, and more.
What WallpaperAccess lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. Although there are only around 50 Christmas wallpapers to download, the selection is of very high quality.
There are cozy fireplace scenes, close-ups of baubles, smiling gingerbread men, snowflake designs, and more. Why not download a bunch and rotate them?
It can be difficult to decide exactly what type of Christmas wallpaper you want. Are you going for something vintage? Or around Christmas movies? How about a lo-fi aesthetic?
Either way, Wallpaper Cave has a weird and wonderful collection of niche Christmas wallpapers. If you want a festive wallpaper with Dragon Ball, BTS or Pokémon, you are sorted here.
WallpapersCraft is a great website when you just want a wallpaper in general, but it’s also a great choice when you want a picture to decorate your desktop, phone, or tablet for the holidays.
There are over 1,300 Christmas wallpapers to choose from and you can easily filter by resolution to get the perfect option for your device.
As the name suggests, WallpapersWide is all about high resolution wallpapers or wallpapers suitable for wide screens. These festive images are perfect if you have a multi-monitor setup.
In fact, the site supports virtually any resolution under the sun. Under the selected image, you can choose the size you want it in, be it widescreen, tablet, mobile, etc.
Zedge’s selection of Christmas wallpapers is for phones only. There is a large selection to choose from: Christmas cake, trees, lights, gifts, ornaments, and so on.
You have to download the Zedge app to see some wallpapers, but you’ll probably be happy with the free selection.
If you cannot trust Wallpapers.com to provide you with Christmas wallpapers, who can you turn to? Fortunately, there are a lot of choices here, with a few categories like “Santa Claus wallpaper” and “Christmas live wallpapers” to choose from.
If you only want desktop or mobile wallpapers, use the filters to set the image orientation. You can also choose by color and size.
Wallpaper Flare has no impact. This site is full of amazing Christmas wallpapers, whether you are looking for something simple and sophisticated or flashy and bright.
Virtually every wallpaper is labeled, which means you can narrow down exactly what type of vacation wallpaper you want. Use the tags at the top of the page in conjunction with the width filters.
If there’s one place where you’d expect great Christmas wallpapers, it’s TheHolidaySpot. This site is dedicated to celebrating all the holidays of the year and has a great collection of festive wallpapers for all size devices.
The only downside is that its wallpapers are all watermarked, even after you’ve downloaded them, which is a bit off-putting if you want a clean desktop aesthetic.
Although iLikeWallpaper bills itself as a destination for iPhone wallpapers, the Christmas images here, of course, will work great on any mobile.
When you select a wallpaper, choose iPhone 13 Pro for the highest resolution. You can then crop it on your own phone if needed.
Obviously, this choice is for Disney fans, but who is not in this group? For many people, Disney is intrinsically linked to Christmas, whether it’s going to the theme park or watching movies.
Thanks to the Disney Parks blog, you can combine Christmas and Disney and use these desktop and mobile wallpapers, available in many resolutions.
You won’t find these wallpapers anywhere else, which is what makes them so special. There’s Mickey carrying a huge candy cane, Pluto disguised as Rudolph and Donald pushing a ball. What not to like?
