Throughout this holiday season we’ve watched as web designers make well-timed changes to their websites. From e-commerce companies to non-profits, organizations are creatively updating their websites to coincide with the season. If you’re compiling your own wishlist for your website this holiday season, read on for some great inspiration. We’ve compiled a short list of websites that successfully incorporate holiday-themed elements into their web design.
Lands End does a great job of using textures in their background to emulate snow and a wintry scene. The Gifts tab in the navigation was added for the holiday shopping season, and the red gift box image highlights the tab nicely.
Citizen Effect, a non-profit organization, cleverly updated their circular logo to resemble an ornament. The added harvest graphics around their featured box bring attention to their Holiday Harvest efforts, where individuals can give a holiday card and help feed needy families this holiday.
Every year, Olan Mills changes the look of their entire site for the holidays. This year, the background of the site, the site colors, and the logo have been updated to reflect the Christmas season.
As an e-commerce site, Apple focuses on gift giving and has changed the language of their Store tab. Apple highlights iPads and iPods as “the gift that keeps on giving,” and added an image of their gift box to show how easy it can be for customers to order online.
This seasonal vacation site incorporates an ornament in their logo. Carrying the holiday theme throughout their website, Winter in TN even gives the Twitter bird a little holiday spirit.
