We’re huge fans of using GIFs in email. And it seems you guys are, too: Last year’s GIF guide was one of our most popular posts of 2015. (Seriously – we received dozens of comments and tweets about how much you guys loved ‘em!)
We didn’t want to keep you hanging this year. Our design team whipped up these exclusive creations (and threw in some old favorites) for you to use in your next holiday campaign. They’re even optimized for email and designed to play well with most email clients.

Step 2: Save an individual GIF to your computer by either right clicking the image and selecting “Save Image,” or by dragging the image to your desktop. You can also download the entire pack by clicking the Download All The GIFs button above.
Step 3: Upload the image into your email template.
Step 4: Test both HTML and text versions of your email. Make sure that the GIF appears correctly in your test before you send. (We use Litmus.)
