It’s coming up to Christmas again and that means it’s time to give your stream a nice Christmas theme. While my girlfriend had our Christmas tree up from the 1st November I wouldn’t recommend switching your theme that early. From the start of December you will start to see streamers switching up there themes to add a Christmas feel.
Below we have researched some of the best looking free and paid overlays for your Christmas streams. Let’s jump in and take a look.

Nerd or Die is one of the biggest overlay providers in the streaming space. They have created a pack where you can “pay what you want” with the minimum price is $0.00. The pack includes Animated Overlay with webcam, support bar and screen designs as well as some other cool features like a Snow Machine allowing you to add a snow effect to any scene.
If you want a simple pack with lots of assets you can use to create your own overlay this is a great option.
