25 Christmas Movies to Love on Netflix
Disclosure: I’m a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam which means that they pay for the streaming service in exchange for me posting once a month about the service. All opinions are my own.
The Hallmark Channel has become well-known for their sappy, romantic movies, especially at Christmas-time (or starting November 1). I have to admit that I watch right along with everyone else. Romantic Christmas movies make me smile, and I always feel good after watching them (even with the million plot reaches and holes every movie seems to have).
But I’ve learned that you don’t have to watch all the sappy movies on the Hallmark Channel, at the whims of their scheduling and repeating the same titles. Netflix has a lot of great Christmas movies available to stream any time. In fact, some are older titles from the Hallmark Channel. And, this year, they have two original titles.
Even though Christmas is quickly approaching, here are 25 great Christmas movies (most watched by me already) to stream on Netflix this year and beyond! I will highlight a few with my thoughts. Oh, and if you see (*), that means I’ve watched it and recommend it.
The Christmas Prince (Netflix original)*
You’ve got to hand it to Netflix. They came up with an entertaining romantic Christmas movie with The Christmas Prince. This movie is so bad it’s good. In fact, Netflix recently tweeted that 53 people loved it enough to stream it every day.
To the 53 people who’ve watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?

Back to Christmas*
Christmas in the Smokies*
Naughty & Nice*
Christmas kiss II*
I’ll admit that when I looked at this movie I rolled my eyes. The storyline was a bit hard to believe, but then again, so are most Christmas movies. Anyhow, I did enjoy A Christmas Kiss II; the main character, Jenna, made it worth watching.
How Sarah Got Her Wings*
A Christmas Kiss*
Christmas Inheritance (netflix Original)*
The other day I watched this movie and enjoyed it a lot. Socialite Ellen needs to exchange letters with her dad’s business partner. She’s told to only bring $100 in cash (no credit cards) and go anonymously. While there are some stretches, Christmas Inheritance is one of my favorites this year.
12 Dates of Christmas*
The Santa Clause (as well as the sequels)*
These films always leave a huge smile on my face, particularly the first two. In the last couple of years I introduced these movies to my daughters. They tend to pelt me with questions. So, it’s been a while since I’ve actually “watched” the movie.
Christmas in the City*
The Spirit of Christmas*
This movie is unlike any other romantic Christmas movies I’ve ever seen. Why? Well, the main character is an appraiser, Kate, who runs across a ghost (Daniel) and they fall in love.
Marry Me for Christmas
I haven’t seen this yet, but I thought I would point out that the Alan Arkin, Susan Sarandon, Penelope Cruz and Paul Walker star in it.
Small Town Santa
This movie was cute and sweet. It revolves around a high school reunion (at Christmas). Georgia hopes for a second chance at love with her old boyfriend, but discovers the love meant for her isn’t who she expected it to be.
A Dogwalker’s Christmas Tale
How the Grinch Stole Christmas*
This is not the original classic, but the redone version directed by Ron Howard and starring Jim Carrey. It’s also one of my favorite films.
I had to end the list with one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies, White Christmas. I’m grateful that it is available to stream again this year. It stars Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, and Vera Ellen. It’s a classic that never gets old.
