Happy December, y’all! Can you believe it’s here? I mean, no pressure y’all… there are only a handful of weeks left to wrap up that Christmas list! And if you’re like me, your Netflix que is filled with Christmas movies. Honestly, after a week in bed thanks to a nasty cold, I’d like to consider myself an expert on the genre now. I mean, what’s not to love about these poorly-acted cheese fests? And while I’m typically a horror movie junkie, when December rolls around, it’s Hallmark and Netflix on repeat. So I thought I’d round up some of the most adorable Christmas movies that are currently streaming!

Top 10 Netflix Christmas Movies

The Princess Switch

Let’s start with one of Netflix’s most recent releases starring Vanessa Hudgens (who kills it with the British accent). Pastry shop owner Stacy decides on a whim to go to the small Kingdom of Belgravia with her coworker Kevin to compete in an international baking competition. While cleaning her apron, she bumps into the secretive Lady Margaret Delacourt, Duchess of Montenaro and future bride of Edward, the kingdom’s Crown Prince, only to discover that they look identical. Lady Margaret hatches a plan to switch places with Stacy for a few days to learn more about the people she will be reigning over. And it would have worked if the Prince went out of town as originally planned, but he winds up spending much more time with Stacy than either could have predicted.

Christmas with a View

Restaurant manager, Clara’s world is turned upside down when a handsome reality star chef joins the staff for the holiday season. While he has a playboy reputation, he’s actually come to the ski resort town for an unexpected reason. His dreams intersect with Clara’s in the most adorable way culminating in a satisfying ending. Christmas with a View is one of my favorites and I highly recommend it. Not to mention that the lead is quite easy on the eyes! Ow ow!

A Christmas Prince

An aspiring journalist Amber gets the opportunity of a lifetime to fly to the small country of Aldovia to cover a press conference of the scandalous crown prince Richard. When Richard fails to show, Amber sneaks around the palace in search of a story that could catapult her career. When she is mistaken as the young princess’ tutor, she decides to play along in order to further investigate. But she winds up getting far more than she bargained for getting that close to the royal family. Without spoiling anything, this movie has every element you’d look for in a romantic Christmas movie and is definitely one to watch.

Christmas Crush

Struggling fashion designer Georgia decides to attend her high school reunion in order to win back her quarterback jock ex-boyfriend (aptly named Craig). Though she dumped him for cheating on her at prom – with her friend no less – Georgia believes that if one piece of her life falls into place, the rest will follow. At the reunion, she finds that he hasn’t changed a bit. And neither has her starving artist buddy Ben, whom she lost touch with after high school. Will she win back her ex or was the right guy there all along? Get ready for all the cheese and a surprising amount of musical numbers, but overall this movie is really fun to watch.

Love Actually

I had to add Love Actually because between this and The Holiday (not currently streaming though), you can’t get through the holidays without watching them! Plus, this is actually one that your significant other will watch with you. I’m sure you’ve likely already seen it, but if not Love Actually is a romantic comedy that follows ten separate stories that interlink as the movie progresses. Just watch it – you’ll love it.

A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding

After enjoying the first, I obviously had to check out the sequel. The story picks up a year later when – spoiler alert – Amber is set to become Queen of Aldovia. Unfortunately, she’s stuck planning the wedding alone when the Aldovian economy is in crisis and the workers are on strike. Amber reverts back to her reporter past to investigate where the money is going and ruffles a few feathers in the process. While the movie is cute and quite original for the genre, it’s missing what is essential to cheesy Christmas movies – the romance. The soon to be King and Queen are hardly in a scene together until the wedding. But, if you loved the first and want to see how the story ends, it’s worth an hour and a half of your time.

Christmas Inheritance

Hard-partying socialite Ellen Langford gets talked into delivering an important letter to her uncle in small-town Snow Falls sans her credit cards. When her uncle has unexpectedly left town prior to her arrival, Ellen is forced to work for the inn she’s staying at to earn her stay until his return. She becomes close with the inn’s manager and learns the Christmas spirit of giving along the way. This movie is as sweet as sugar and completely heart-warming. My only hang-up is that the leading man is written as a tad dorky (for my personal preference) so the connection seems a bit far-fetched. When he said he was in art school and then shows his doodles, I about lost it! But somehow he grows on me and it works. You’re sure to have your heart warmed.

Merry Kissmas

Business manager Kayla is in a failing relationship with her controlling choreographer fiance, but when she winds up under the mistletoe with a handsome stranger, something sparks and the two kiss. But things get tricky when he winds up as the caterer at her engagement party. I may have enjoyed this one in particular because I’ve been in the throws of Pretty Little Liars withdrawals and Noel Kahn is the leading man. It’s actually pretty confusing seeing him as the sweet love interest instead of trying to plot against the Liars, but hey! I’m here for it!

And one to watch because it’s terrible: Christmas Wedding Planner

Now I know that these movies aren’t known for their amazing acting or plots, but Christmas Wedding Planner really takes it to a new low. There is no chemistry between the main characters and the plot is absolutely ridiculous from start to finish. BUT, I need y’all to watch this so we can commiserate over it together ūüėČ PS… It even says “based on a Harlequin romance novel” in the opening credits! I should’ve known what I was in for!
