Recommended Netflix Christmas Movies (UK)

Updated November 2019

Last December I came down with a bad dose of winter flu so I made the most of it by having a huge Netflix Christmas movie binge. Netflix has recently added several new titles for 2019 and I have made a start on those too.

Here are my recommended Netflix Christmas films from the last few years.  They are all very light and usually cheesy.  It seems that Christmas movies allow you to watch and enjoy things that you wouldn’t normally.

I love a Christmas film that can make you feel like a child again with all the magic that this time of year brings for the younger generation. A good old  rom com always hits the spot too. Watching a Netflix Christmas movie is the perfect way to switch off from all the hustle and bustle of the holiday period.

I’m hoping you will all give me your suggestions too.

2019 Netflix Christmas Movies

Let it Snow

This is my favourite Netfix Christmas movie of 2019 so far. It’s a modern day romance with a predominantly teenage cast. Perfect feel good Christmas movie. Thumbs up for this one Netflix.

Holiday in the Wild

This new Netflix Christmas movie features an elephant sanctuary in Africa where orphaned elephants are rehabilitated and returned to the wild when they are ready.

The film itself isn’t mind-blowing but worth a watch just for the scenery, elephants and Rob Lowe! It also features the lovely Kristin Davis (Sex and the City) and Rob Lowe’s son John (Johnny) Lowe making his film debut.

Christmas Break In

This slapstick family drama is very much along the lines of Home Alone where a 9 year old gets stranded in school after her parents forget to collect her. Worth a watch if you need something suitable for the whole family.


I’m sure this high quality animation is going to be a huge hit. Created by the makers of Despicable Me.

2018 Christmas Movies on Netflix

The Christmas Chronicles

This 2018 Netflix addition, featuring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus, was my favourite Christmas movie of 2018.

I think Kurt Russel has been the best Christmas movie Santa since Richard Attenborough in Miracle on 34th Street. A fabulous magical film for all ages.

The Princess Switch 2018

Two lookalikes (both played by Vanessa Hugdens of High School Musical) swap their roles as baker and princess in this family rom com set in Belgravia. An easy watch.

A Christmas Prince 2017/2018/2019

A bit of light watching where a journalist heads to Aldovia to report on the royal family and ends up falling in love with the prince. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding follows in 2018 and A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby in 2019

If you’re a Netflix user, you might also be interested to read an older post where I explain how we saved £5000 in one year which included changing our TV package.

You can watch trailers for all these films and more on my YouTube Channel or check out my earlier post of must see Christmas movies.

Have you scrapped your tv package in favour of Netflix?
Do you have any favourite films or box sets on Netflix or Amazon Prime?

  2. I’ll check out the Christmas Chronicles! Daniel wants to watch Home Alone 2 before we see anything else though! And Lee has never seen Die Hard so I have that downloaded too. With Sky Cinema, Netflix and Amazon Prime there’s so much choice!

  3. I hope you’re sitting down….we have Everything (with exception of Sky Movies package I think – I don’t actually know what that means though to be fair) – which includes (most of) the Sky channels, Amazon and Netflix. We loved the Christmas Chronicles – Kurt Russell makes a good rocking Santa. I’m not sure we’ll get round to watching any more Christmas movies as time seems to be running out. Is there peak Christmas? When does that happen? When’s the cut off point for watching Christmas? I hope you’re well on the mend but it does seem like you’re putting your time to very good use – thanks for all the recommendations!

    • Christmas Chronicles was fab wasn’t it. I’m probably all Christmas’d out but I may squeeze one or two more in. Think I’ve probably reached the bottom of the Netflix barrel though. Some didn’t even last 10 mins. Still that’s the beauty of Netflix.
