So, you’re in charge of the office party invites this year, or you’ve decided to make your own Christmas cards, or your website dedicated to the reality TV hit Soccer Mom Bounty Hunters desperately needs a holiday makeover… whatever! You need seasonal clipart and you need it fast. The following sites offer free images of Santa, wreaths, candy canes, and other holiday icons to get you in the Christmas clipart mood.
Christmas Graphics Plus. In addition to extensive collections of clipart for Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween and other holidays, Christmas Graphics Plus also offers – surprise, surprise – Christmas clipart. Lots of Christmas clipart, like 143 Christmas graphics and 81 animated gifs. Both graphics and animated gifs are neatly broken down into categories such as banners, candles, toys, Santas, wreaths, and elves, and all material here is free from any copyright restrictions.
WPClipart. WPClipart offers a sizable amount of Christmas graphics, all laid out by category. You can download images in multiple formats (PNG, JPEG, WebP), and there are even some limited editing tools available so you can tweak images by resizing them, rotating them, cropping… you can even add a few effects. All images here are free of copyright concerns. An added perk: scroll down to the bottom of each image page to find a number of “related images”.
ChristmasGifts.com – Christmas Clipart. ChristmasGifts.com’s clipart is free for personal/non-profit use, and come in two primary flavors: modern and vintage. Modern is the stuff you’re probably most used to when you think of Christmas clipart: the usual recently-created bells, candy canes, and gift boxes. Where the site really shines is in its vintage collection. These were created from authentic Victorian and Edwardian postcards from the 19th and early 20th century. Like the modern graphics, all the vintage clipart is grouped into categories like Angels, Sleighs and Cars, and Santa Claus, so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
Christian Clipart – Christmas. If your tastes run more to the religious when it comes to Christmas, check out the Christian Clipart site. While they offer a lot of non-religious clipart as well, Christian-themed graphics – Jesus, Mary, wise men, the nativity, angels – are definitely the primary focus here. In addition to Christmas, they also have Christian clipart for other general holiday needs, everything from Satan to Easter.
