Wallpaper Vault:

Wallpaper Vault sports a plethora of gorgeous holiday wallpaper packs. At the end of each season, they discard their current batch of wallpapers and replace them with a new set relevant to the oncoming, new season. During Fall, for instance, they feature Fall-themed wallpapers, Thanksgiving wallpapers, football wallpapers, and even 3D falling leaves wallpaper. Each packet features a dozen beautiful, high-quality images that can either be displayed separately or configured to rotate based on a customizable delay timer. Setting up the holiday wallpapers merely requires downloading the packet, double clicking on it, and then following the on-screen instructions.

The Holiday Spot:

The Holiday Spot features holiday wallpapers for each and every month of the year. The month of May, for instance, features Mother’s day wallpapers, May day wallpapers, Memorial day wallpapers, and even Cinco-de-Mayo wallpapers. In addition, each wallpaper is available for download in either 800×600, 1024×768, 1280×1024, or 1600×1200 resolution. The Holiday Spot also allows you to forward any wallpapers that you like to your friends’ email addresses. The defining factor behind the Holiday Spot is their vast array of wallpapers for nearly any occasion and holiday imaginable, including even Mardi Gras! Do note that each holiday wallpaper must be manually installed.

Holiday Wallpapers:

Holiday Wallpapers is a collection of various holiday wallpaper websites all linked together into one easy-to-browse page. It includes Christmas wallpapers, Hanukkah wallpapers, Kwanzaa wallpapers, Thanksgiving wallpapers, and even fireplace wallpapers. Although it houses only a select few wallpapers per category (at least in comparison to it’s peers), the selling point for Holiday Wallpapers is the uniquely designed flavor that each wallpaper possesses, unlike the somewhat generic nature of its competitors. Similar to the Holiday Spot, each wallpaper downloaded from Holiday Wallpapers must be manually installed.


Basehead is a consumer-driven wallpaper gallery that hosts wallpapers produced by independent artists all across the world. Although Basehead does not categorize their holiday wallpapers by either month or day, careful browsing will nonetheless reveal numerous digitally-optimized wallpapers for various occasions such as Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and even birthdays. Each holiday wallpaper can be previewed by clicking on a tiny lens icon that displays a zoomed-in version of the image. Furthermore, Basehead allows users to send an ‘ecard’ with the holiday wallpaper attached to friends and family, a feature not inherent to many of its peer websites such as the previously mentioned Wallpaper Vault. Note however that wallpapers downloaded from Basehead must be manually installed.

Seasonal Wallpapers:

Seasonal Wallpapers contains a wide selection of low-key, diminutively sized (in regards to Megabytes) wallpapers categorized by seasons, holidays, months, and miscellaneous occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and the arrival of a new baby. Each image is available in either 800×600 or 1024×768 resolution and can be downloaded, upon which time a manual installation will be necessary. The holiday wallpapers offered at Seasonal Wallpapers are low-key in that their designs are simple, but the benefit is that they are much smaller in size and will therefore take less space to store and less memory to display. Unfortunately, Seasonal Wallpapers is equipped with a relatively short supply of wallpapers. The benefit, however, is that they cover so many different types of occasions.
