Although it’s only the middle of November, some people have already started decorating their homes to bring cheer during this stressful year. While some are thrilled to dust off the decorations, others aren’t ready or not into doing it at all. Instead of giving into the pressure, spread cheer while keeping it low-lift with these festive Zoom backgrounds.

Interior design service Havenly is offering free backgrounds on Zoom that you can download at your decorative discretion. From wintry-themed living rooms to tropical-inspired backyards, there are many options to choose from. Below are some of our favorites to match every scenario you may desire this holiday season.

For a Touch of Modern with a Sprinkle of Cheer

This is the perfect backdrop for a simple yet festive look. Titled “Merry Minimalist-mas,” this background features red and white pillows, a classic wreath, and a small Christmas tree tucked into the corner of the room. The red, white, and gold palette makes for a classic, inviting style.

For a “Home Alone 2” Christmas Vibe—Without the Drama

If you’re a fan of “Home Alone 2,” then this den’s luxurious look might remind you of the suite where Kevin lives out his wildest childhood dreams at The Plaza Hotel. “Under the Tree” showcases a living room with the works: white stockings hang from the chimney, a decorated tree, an array of gifts tucked beside its stump. We can basically hear Kevin blasting the TV while eating his two scoops of ice cream.

For an Aspen-Inspired Ski Setting

This background can be a virtual substitute for the ski trip you had to scrap this holiday season. Grab a blanket and warm mug of hot chocolate, then set this background to surrounded yourself with snow—no matter where you are. The tree with gold ornaments, vaulted chandelier, and lush hearth adds elegance to the space, and the all-white furnishing makes it a true winter wonderland.

For a Very Kardashian Holiday Look

If you’re looking for the opposite of wintry, “Backyard Bliss-mas” is a virtual tropical getaway that you’ll want to set as your background. With its sleek, modern style, we can easily imagine the Kardashians cozying up in this luxurious retreat that’s got strong L.A. vibes. Palm trees, a welcoming pool, and twinkling lights—what’s not to feel festive about here?
