Holiday-themed emoticons are available for free in many applications on the Google Play store, such as Christmas Emoji Free and Valentine Love Emoji. Holiday-themed emoticons can be found in the free version of the Emoji Keyboard mobile app, which is available on iTunes.

Emoji Keyboard Free, an application for iPhones and iPads, installs a virtual keyboard containing a collection of emoticons onto the device. While certain sets of emoticons and keyboard themes require a fee, the base application is free and contains a large number of emoticons. Valentine Love Emoji is a similar app for Android devices that contains only love and Valentine's Day-themed emoticons.
