Top 10 Christmas Movies on Netflix

Over the last week or so, I have been trying to find Christmas movies to watch on Netflix. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year, and Christmas movies are a great part of it. Now that we have Oliver, we can snuggle up with him and some hot cocoa and eggnog and binge watch some Netflix! Here are my favorites, in order of how much I enjoy them. Keep reading below to see my favorite movie outfit!

Olivers puppy snuggles are the best!


1. 12 Dates of Christmas
This one is an ABC movie, so you know it’s a cute one. It follows a very classic story line for a Christmas movie – the main character, Kate, relives Christmas Eve over and over again until she gets it right. Kate is so worried about winning her ex-boyfriend back, she ends up ruining her blind date with Miles, a handsome guy she’s been set up with. In a strange twist of fate, Kate has the chance to re-live the same day twelve times in an attempt to finally get it right and discover what really matters to her isn’t what she thought. 
2. A Christmas Kiss
This movie is absolutely adorable and has quickly become an instant favorite. The used-to-be-fun Wendy is an aspiring designer with a horrible, demanding boss named Priscilla. When Wendy gets stuck in an elevator with a mysterious, handsome man in the elevator, she soon discovers that it’s Priscilla’s boyfriend, Adam. Things get complicated quickly… especially because the chemistry between Wendy and Adam is SO strong, it really sells the movie. This is the epitome of a Christmas chick flick!
3. A Christmas Prince
I don’t think I saw this one on there last year so I’m assuming it’s new..and it’s such a cute one! A reporter named Amber who’s assigned her first “big-break story” – writing a story about a prince in another country who is supposedly a bit of a playboy. When she arrives in at the castle, she is hunting for her story and ends up being mistaken as the American tutor for the prince’s little sister. She begins to live in the castle with and the royal family and discovers  more than she came to find out. She starts to fall in love with the prince… but what happens when they find out she’s not who she said she was?

4. A Christmas Kiss 2
This one is the sequel to “A Christmas Kiss” and – surprise – also involves a kiss in an elevator. I personally enjoyed the original “A Christmas Kiss” more, but this one is still worth a watch – it’s really cute!! I even shed a little tear at the end. Jenna is a hardworking assistant at Trend, a fashion magazine. After filling in at a Christmas photo shoot, a mysterious, handsome man kisses her under the mistletoe in the elevator. She soon learns that this man is her boss’s brother, who also has a not-so-pleasant reputation of being a playboy. However, the more time Jenna spends with him, she can’t help but like him. He works hard to win her over and prove this time is different.

5. Back to Christmas
This movie threw me for a loop and I wasn’t sure what to expect. The main character, Ali, travels back one year in time to try to fix her broken engagement. After working to fix thing, she starts to realize that he may not have been the right one for her after all. The ending is an emotional roller coaster, but definitely worth watching!!
6. Christmas Inheritance
I think this movie is new, too. It’s on the popular list, so I had to give it a watch. Ellen is a socialite who is set to inherit her fathers company. She is a little wild to be a CEO anytime soon, though. Her father insists she goes back to his hometown where his company was started to deliver a personal letter as a Christmas tradition. Ellen finds more in Snow Falls than she anticipated. 
7. Merry Kissmas
In this one, a girl named Kayla is engaged to a narcissistic film and stage director/choreographer who doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Their relationship is very obviously struggling. When Kate accidentally kisses a man in an elevator (where do these women find these elevators??) they end up falling for each other. It’s not the best acting I’ve ever seen, but the story is cute.
8. The Santa Clause
Another Classic! My sister and I used to watch this together every year, sometimes even when it wasn’t Christmas. Scott Calvin, a constantly working dad who has an iffy relationship with his son Charlie, gets sucked into becoming Santa Clause. Initially, he thinks it’s a dream, but comes to find out it’s not. It throws his whole world for a loop before learning to accept who he is. 

9. The Christmas Card
Even though the acting in this movie was preeeetty bad, the story was adorable. A soldier receives a Christmas card from a stranger while on deployment, and ends up coming to the town the card came from, and of course he falls for the woman who sent it. They have some troubles along the way, but it’s a very sweet story and I definitely recommend it!

10. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Who hasn’t seen the Grinch? It’s one of my favorite movies in general, not only at Christmas. I only put it at the end because I figured most people had seen it already. I’ll watch it 10 times in a row and not get sick of it! It’s always good to have a friendly reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. 

Which Christmas movie is your favorite?? Let me know below!

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at via the link in my bio ❤️
