Romantic Christmas Movies

Sharing is caring!

Any Holiday movie from this list of Romantic Christmas Movies is a great way to have a little date night without spending much in the way of money!

Personally, money gets a bit tight during the Christmas season and so does time.

So, being able to sit down at night (after the kids go to bed), watch some Christmas romance movies, and spend a bit of cuddle time with my husband is a wonderful way to date!

Seriously, there is no better way to write our love story than by watching romantic Christmas films in the comfort of our own home.  The following movies are all available on Amazon and contain affiliate links.

The following movies are reminiscent of all Hallmark Channel movies where the female heroine falls in love with the male hero.  Yes, but the story-line is different. LOL!

Unfortunately, Wendy’s dreams of impressing her boss get complicated when she realizes that the mysterious man she kissed in a falling elevator is Priscilla’s boyfriend, Adam.
