I don't think there is a one size fit all approach to stock photography.  I would however look at shots that are holiday specific or follow a theme, or could be used by companies for various marketing.

I would focus on the people in scenarios shots.  Doing things and holiday photos.  Seems like those would be the most universal shots.

Sometimes I see photos using models and very good photos and I guess the photographer earn few dollars per each download.Someone here sell photos in stocks websites?
