“Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to ride, In a one-horse open sleigh”
Awwww, how much we love this time of year: family meetings, dinners with friends, shopping, gifts, fireworks… and music! That one cannot be missed.
Because what would Christmas be without carols and Christmas music?
Of course, it would be like leaving a child without the gifts, parents without their turkey, and grandparents without their chocolates. In other words:
Christmas, without music, would not be a real Christmas.
But don’t forget that Christmas is lived both outside and inside the work environment.
Therefore, you should not only bring that magic touch of Christmas music into your own home but also into your professional projects.
Imagine for a moment how good you or your company would look by creating a video with Christmas background music, or adding a Christmas jingle to a podcast, a commercial, or any project you have in hand. Wouldn’t you be able to awaken that Christmas spirit in your clients that they love so much?
Of course, you would, right?
In that case, I invite you to make the following thought:
If you or your brand are associated with the well-being that Christmas brings, it is very possible that your work will become viral.
Do you know what that means?
Basically, that you will be able to achieve a ‘snowball’ effect that will increase your visualizations, your followers, your clients… and your sales!
If you also want to achieve these results and make your users fall in love with you, here you will find the best places to download the perfect Christmas music for your projects.
Don’t let this occasion pass you by, don’t let them leave you without the promotion!
Well, it’s time to congratulate you.
Now you know the 3 best platforms to get quality Christmas music for your productions.
However, you may be one of those people who do not limit themselves when it comes to finding the best option for themselves.
If this is your case, you are one of us.
In fact, we have considered the three previous ones as the best ones based on our own experience and our own clients’.
But if you think you need to know more alternatives, keep reading, because we have compiled a list of up to 10 platforms with Christmas music for you.
Licensed Royalty-Free Christmas Music: The Best Alternatives
With permission from Epidemic Sound, Envato Elements and Artlist, these are the most visited pages where you can get licenses for Christmas songs.
Audiojungle. This is one of the services provided by Envato where you can purchase licenses for individual Christmas songs. Its price ranges from $26 to $29 and it meets the quality you need for your production.
Premium Beat. Very similar to the previous one, but this time it belongs to another giant like Shutterstock. They also provide individual licenses for Christmas songs, and their price per song is between $49 and $199 depending on your needs.
Pond5. On this platform, you will not only find Christmas music that you can classify by duration, price, and other factors. You will also have at your disposal other creative elements such as stock videos, sound effects, images, 3D models… and much more!
MelodyLoops. More songs for year-end and holiday periods free of charge. The prices in this portal are lower than the previous ones, and you will not notice practically any difference regarding the musical quality.
BeatSuite. The prices handled on this platform are considerably higher than those of previous platforms. Its standard license is $80, however, it can be a good place to find cheerful Christmas and children’s music.
AudioMicro. Another very attractive alternative with instrumental Christmas music free of copyright. Licenses start at $50 (as in Premium Beat), but you’ll have a wide range of music tracks at your disposal.
AudioSparx. This platform brings together the best of subscription services and the best of individual licenses. With AudioSparx, you’ll have both possibilities to get the Christmas music you’re looking for.
SoundSnap. Like the previous one, it offers you an annual subscription or plans with limited downloads. Of course, there are almost 400 Christmas songs that you will have in your hands to choose those downloads, all of them in .wav and mp3 format.
FesliyanStudios. It’s not one of the best on this list, but they also have some Christmas songs that might be interesting for your projects. You can take a look at them and see if you are up to it.
Royalty Free Music Clips: A very basic website, with a very simple and intuitive design (although a bit old-fashioned). But if you leave the design aside and focus on the Christmas music, you will find more than 500 tracks in .wav format with very different prices.
How many choices, right?
Now you can say loud and clear that you have an extensive list to choose from for your Christmas music.
However, all these options have one thing in common: They are not free.
And maybe you’re asking yourself the following question:
Where to Download Free Non-Copyrighted Christmas Music?
In that case, it is very possible that what you are working on is not commercial.
That is to say, that it is not a professional project that is going to be monetized.
Otherwise, you won’t be able to use this type of music, as we explained at the beginning of the article.
If you have this clear and you want free Christmas music, here we provide you with a list of websites where you can get it.
Feels Like Christmas. Christmas music by independent artists. To download an mp3, click on the “download” button of each song and right-click “Save as…”.
Dl-Sounds. You will be able to find, approximately, 10 Christmas songs available for immediate free download. They are not many but, but they are free, right?
Christmas Gifts. More than 40 free Christmas songs, some under Creative Commons Attribution licenses (we must mention the artist in our video or project).
FreeXmasMp3. 24 free Christmas songs for free download, although they are updated from time to time, so you might find even more.
Songs of Praise. Approximately 50 typical and not so typical Christmas songs To save them, right-click on each song and then right-click “Save as…”.
AM Classical. It is a portal with a slightly obsolete design, but we are given 18 classic Christmas songs. Not bad, right?
MFiles. You can see that this is a time of gifts, and on this platform it is very clear. Why? Because they give you up to 60 songs for your Christmas videos.
Incompetech. 17 more songs for the collection! However, keep in mind that it is necessary to attribute to its author, that is to say, you will have to comment in your project that the music is his.
Youtube Audio Library. If you haven’t found what you were looking for before, look in the library of Youtube itself, they have some very interesting musical pieces, and that not many people know.
Music Screen. This is a website with many licenses for all types of music, including Christmas music. It is worth taking a look at.
Motion Array. It is known within the community of content creators as one of the best alternatives to the top platforms. And on top of that, you can find some free music tracks for your Christmas videos. What else can you ask for?
[Bonus] Free Public Domain Christmas Songs
In addition to the websites we have just shown you, there is a list of Christmas songs in the public domain that you can download for free.
Christmas is one of the most magical periods of the year. And to convey that Christmas spirit in the best possible way, there are things you can’t miss.
You must have the Christmas tree in your living room, decorated with garlands and balls, your socks well placed so that Santa Claus can fill them with candy, and of course, the best Christmas music.
Music that you can use at home or in your professional freelancer projects, your audiovisual productions as an agency, or your soundtrack for your physical business.
In fact, it can be used for everything:
To create the perfect atmosphere. With Christmas music, you will be able to recreate the characteristic atmosphere of these dates. You can close your eyes, listen to the music and, automatically, see yourself among snowy hills, wood chimneys, family gatherings, and full happiness.
For audiovisual projects and original slide shows. Whatever the project you are working on and its purpose (a surprise presentation for the family or professional work), Christmas music will manage to give it that special and magical touch.
For your personal and professional YouTube videos. When you upload your latest productions to this platform and the Christmas season is approaching, add a good Christmas song in the background. You’ll see how you’ll achieve a greater engagement with your subscribers.
In short, music is precisely the key element to achieve the best results at this time of year:
Without good Christmas music, you will not be able to transmit the magic of Christmas to your clients.
But be careful with the type of music you use for your projects.
We remind you that, if it has copyright and you have not obtained the expensive licenses of use from the PROs (Performance Rights Organizations), you will receive very hard economic penalties and legal responsibilities.
Luckily, you now know many alternatives where to find Christmas music without copyright.
All of them have the best music service for agencies and freelancers that you can find on the Internet.
In addition to making thousands of songs available to you in a single subscription, you can make unlimited downloads of your favorite Christmas songs at a very affordable price.
It is true that each of them has features that differentiate them and make them unique in the market.
We have already introduced them to you.
Now it’s your turn to choose which of the three to get the best Christmas music for your productions.
And we do not say goodbye to you in this article without wishing you the best for this time of year.
Merry Christmas and good music!
