Festive Favourites: 12 Movies for 12 Days of Christmas

Happy December! If you know me, then you will know I am slightly obsessed with every aspect of Christmas, and am so excited for the festivities to get into full swing for the next few weeks. I cannot wait to go to the Christmas markets, bake some gingerbread, and most importantly watch lots of Christmas movies.

From the cheesy Hallmark festive movies to the ultimate classics that must be watched annually, I am obsessed with Christmas films and will be squeezing in as many as possible throughout the month. So for anyone looking to get into the festive spirit, I thought I would list those classics that everyone should watch this month.

  1. All I Want For Christmas

New York City in December. 90s style. A cute love story. My favourite elements for a Christmas classic- this one is so underrated but I would definitely recommend.


  1. The Holiday

Of course ‘The Holiday’ had to be featured. I would move to that little cottage in Surrey if I could.

  1. Elf

Because it’s ‘Elf’. No explanation needed.


  1. Miracle on 34th Street

Perhaps my ultimate favourite. I always watch the 1994 version because, again I love the 90s and Richard Attenborough was the perfect Santa.


  1. Love Actually

God only knows how many times I have watched ‘Love Actually’. I find it quite sad in moments, especially when Emma Thompson cries to Joni Mitchell in her room, but ultimately it is so heart-warming and festive.


  1. Home Alone

This movie features an acting legend, Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek anyone?!), and my dream house- honestly if someone could buy me it I would be eternally grateful. Merry Christmas ya filthy animal.


  1. The Nativity

It is so funny, all of the children are so cute and it makes me want to be a primary teacher just to organise the annual nativity. It’s probably even more stressful in real life.


  1. Deck the Halls

One of my best friends is obsessed with Danny DeVito, so if you’re in the same boat then definitely give it a watch. Or if you’re more like me and love Sex and the City then you should also watch it because Charlotte and Carrie’s real life husband are in it. Either way, it’s a very festive film.


  1. Polar Express

This is my classic Christmas Eve film; to this day I would do anything to be on that train. If only…

  1. The Santa Clause

My sister used to be obsessed with this film so when I was younger I was forced to watch it but now I love it too and we watch it every year. There are also 2 follow up movies so even more to enjoy!


  1. White Christmas

The ultimate classic for me. I love it so much; the clothes, the music the dancing- everything about it is so ‘Old Hollywood’.


  1. Christmas With the Kranks

Finally, last but not least, Christmas with the Kranks. The first part of the film is so frustrating for me because I hate the prospect of going somewhere sunny and avoiding Christmas, but thankfully (spoiler), it gets better.



Hope you all enjoy the festivities!

Hello! My name is Stephanie Elizabeth, I am a student/ writer/ fashion lover from Scotland . From a young age, fashion has been an immensely important aspect of my life, and in the past few years this love has grown from my discovery of Hollywood legends such as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Diane Keaton and many more. Through this admiration, I was able to appreciate the many eras of fashion and the unique interpretations of style which keep it interesting and ever changing; it is the individual takes which I love the most, as it is completely expressive and different for every one of us. So, I am excited for this next chapter of my life to see how my own style( and life) evolves during university, lots of travelling( I hope) and beyond.
