Festive Films For Christmas

Christmas Movies

Christmas is the perfect excuse to cosy up with a festive drink, lots of blankets, food, candles and a good festive film! I love to put a Christmas movie on while I’m writing my Christmas cards, wrapping presents and organising everything, so throughout the festive season there’s actually a lot of time to have a movie marathon.

The best thing about Christmas movies is that you can have them on in the background and pick them up as you come in and out and do jobs around the house, or when you’re busy entertaining guests (or lack of this year haha).

Having a movie on in the background is really festive and makes me feel so homely and excited and let’s be honest, with less travel and less friends and family to entertain, there’s no better time to get your Christmas movies ready and cosy up!

I have a few DVDs of my favourite Christmas movies and to be honest, Christmas is the only time I ever bring them out as like everyone else, I just watch Netflix and Amazon. If you don’t have a subscription for both then now is definitely the time to sign up. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial of Amazon here, which will have you covered for the entire festive season!
