As we reach the end of a difficult 2021, the Christmas spirit is slowly but surely taking over. We know that many of you have already decorated your houses and are preparing to spend some peaceful moments at home. But no Christmas preparation is complete without decorating your Android or iPhone with a Christmas wallpaper. If you’re searching for that perfect image to fill your mobile screens, here are our 21 favorite Christmas wallpapers for smartphones and tablets:
We start off with a wallpaper that illustrates very well the chaotic year we’ve had. And just like with 2021, this picture shows us that there’s beauty in chaos, too.

We continue with a wallpaper that reminds us that the best holidays are spent in the company of others. While we might have different views, different goals, different paths, we should enjoy Christmas together.
For the more pretentious of you, here’s a wallpaper with a beautiful color palette and plenty of room for icons. This way, you can customize your Home screen and make the icons and widgets more visible.

Here is another wallpaper that gives you plenty of room to place your icons. The simple color scheme ensures that you won’t have trouble identifying the graphical elements of the phone interface.
Of course, we all look forward to the Christmas dinner. The family conversations, the passive-aggressive comments, the gossip, and, of course, the food. Just be careful with the carb and sweets intake!

On a lighter tone (literally), here’s a wallpaper with a miniature bike stuck in the snow. We think it’s cute. Do you agree?

If you like Christmas and you’re crazy about chocolate, this one is for you. The decorations are not edible, though.

Your kids will surely enjoy this one. It’s Winnie the Pooh, sitting in front of the Christmas tree, probably thinking of honey treats.

Although we think pets should not be given as surprise gifts (unless you’re sure that person can take care of it), there’s no harm in dressing up your pet to look like a Christmas gift. Right?

This chubby angel is exactly what we’ll look like after the copious home-cooked Christmas dinner. No regrets!

The gingerbread tastes better in front of the Christmas tree, accompanied by a cup of warm milk. Or maybe it’s hot chocolate? Ah, either way, we can’t wait.

Yes, we like minimalistic Christmas wallpapers. We think that the simpler the image, the less cluttered it feels when looking at the Home screen. With multi-colored icons, all sorts of buttons and widgets, you don’t want the background image to make it look even busier. Here’s a wallpaper that complements the dark mode on your Android phone or your iPhone.
Did someone say “fireworks”? Count us in! We love them at parties or festivals, and we’re looking forward to them during the winter holidays. Throw in some bokeh effects and you have yourself a wallpaper!
Here’s another wallpaper with a cool, uniform color palette and plenty of room for your icons. The bauble looks gorgeous, too.

Here’s another one for the dog lovers out there. Hopefully, no pets were harmed or terrified while taking the picture.
Here’s a wallpaper that will make the icons on your Home screen stand out more. We think the discreet decorations are chic.
Want to make your icons and widget hard to read? Look no further, we found the perfect wallpaper. If you’re REALLY into baubles, try this one. Good luck finding that Instagram icon!
You know it’s just a matter of time. If you have cats, they WILL be hypnotized by the shiny baubles and lights and they WILL try to play with the decorations. So make sure the tree is properly secured.
Here’s one final minimalist wallpaper, this time with a bokeh effect on a Christmas tree. Bonus, if your smartphone has an AMOLED screen, this wallpaper will actually save battery!
We have so many questions about this image. Why would the poor snowman be dressed in thick, warm clothes? Isn’t heat the enemy of snowmen? Also, why is he smiling? He’s melting in there! Anyway, the picture is nice and it also managed to put a smile on our faces.
We end the list with an awesome neon sign which we’d love to have in our office for the holidays. And we do wish you a Merry Christmas, a happy new year, and may you enjoy these holidays together with your family and friends!
