5 Great Places to Find Animated GIFs

Hey, do you ever find yourself in situations—perhaps a blog post, or maybe an email—where words just won't do, and there's not an emoji to properly convey your feelings or emotions? Well, then you've come to the right place.

These types of situations are exactly what animated GIFs were made for, and we've rounded up some of our favorite places to find them. 


Buffer's GIF Mood Board

As the title implies, this one covers GIFs by mood, and for the moment (as of this writing), they're entirely positive. So if you're feeling happy, head here.


Giphy is like Google for GIFs. It's searchable, which is a huge plus, and you can even make your own. Best of all, every GIF comes with an embed code, for easy use on blogs.

James Van Der Memes

Pretty straightforward: It's a bunch of reactions, acted out by TV and film legend James Van Der Beek.

Lookout Landing

Specifically, check out this Kyle Seager post, although if you read LL on the regular, you know that they're never short on great, Mariners-related GIF material in general.


Google Image Search

Go to Google. Do a search for basically anything. Click on Images, on the results page. Click Search Tools, then Type, then Animated.

Boom. You're welcome.

One small warning: There's no guarantee these are public domain, so be careful.
