The holiday season can be a wonderful, relaxing time to spend with family and friends — but we all know how easy it is to get overwhelmed by the cooking or caught up in last-minute gift buying, when suddenly December becomes the busiest month of the year.

This year, we decided to play Santa and make things a little bit easier for everyone, with a set of 8 animated cards that are just waiting for you to customize, save, and share with your friends! A few of the GIFs are featured below, but if you really want to spread the love and cheer this holiday season, head over to our custom GIF creator and add a personal message of your own.

Happy holidays to you and your loved ones, from all of us at Shutterstock!
