The Only Holiday GIF(t) Guide You Need This Year (Or Any Year Ever)

inbound marketing guide

This holiday season you don’t want to miss our free digital marketing gift bundle, bursting with four of our best tools to help take your marketing to the next level.

But if you thought we’d stop there, you don’t know us very well. We Rakafarians like to give until it hurts, and with this post some of us came very close to, not dying, but at least being mortally wounded by laughter (Feel better, Leigh!).

Introducing our Ultimate Holiday GIF(t) Guide: 13 of our favorite GIFs handpicked just for you.

That’s right, we spent at least two billable hours scouring for the work-inspired animations that made us laugh the hardest. Our hope is to give you the only GIFs you’ll need to get through the holiday season, no matter how jolly or unjolly they may be. They’re relatable, they’re totally suitable for work, and (mostly) inoffensive. How’s that for a Christmas miracle?

Narrowing the list down was extremely difficult. But as that one commercial says, you’re worth it. So without further ado….

I know when that Yuletide bling

“When a co-worker makes an amazing Christmas playlist to put you in the holiday mood.” – Kevin, Lead Developer

But after a few hours…

“Same coworker, after hearing you complain about ‘Last Christmas’ playing on loop.” – Team effort

Ya sorry, I can’t
