Blogmas Day 5: Grown up Christmas movies to watch

Welcome to Blogmas Day 5!

I’ve decided to take a break from gift guides today and instead focus on something equally as exciting; Christmas movies!

So I’m a huge fan of festive films and love nothing more than watching them in the lead up to Christmas. Apart from the classic films that people of all ages can enjoy, I’ve complied a list of ones geared more towards adults.

A Bad Moms Christmas. The bad moms are back and better (worse?) than ever in this Christmas comedy. This time around, Amy and co are joined by their own mums who turn their worlds upside down and it’s a challenge keeping their sanity intact during the silly season. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments (and a few that are just downright wrong haha). This is the perfect film to watch with your girlfriends over some champagne and cheese.

Elf. Buddy the Elf is happily working among the elves in Santa’s Workshop until he discovers his father is alive and well and better yet, human. Follow Buddy as he leaves everything he’s ever known to travel to New York City, where he struggles to fit in with a very human world. This is the perfect movie to watch with both kids and adults alike as there really is something there for everyone. From Buddy’s breakfast of choice (candy overload) to working in the mailroom, this film is sure to get you feeling festively happy inside!

Love Actually. If you’re after a film that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, you really can’t go past Love Actually. This classic movie follows a group of Londoners over the festive season and all of the trials and tribulations of their love lives. Honestly, each scene is amazing and I love seeing how the all of the characters intertwine in the end. Definitely a must watch!

The Princess Switch. Vanessa Hudgens is quickly becoming the leading lady of Christmas movies and this one is sure to please anyone. Vanessa stars as a baker who travels to the fictional country of Belgravia for a bake off and coincidentally meets a long lost relative who looks exactly like her. Yes it is unbelievable and has absolutely no logic but the cute actors, beautiful scenes and dreamy Christmas setting is sure to put a smile on your face. Also, so many people have slammed Vanessa’s British accent but I really don’t think it’s bad? Let me know what you think!

Office Christmas Party. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more raunchy, Office Christmas Party is right up your alley. It follows an epic party thrown by a manager in the hope of impressing the company about to shut them down. What follows is a night of total debauchery and plenty of hilarious (and super gross!) moments. It’s a fun movie and makes your own work parties look super tame!

The Knight Before Christmas. This is another Christmas film starring Vanessa Hudgens that was added to Netflix this year and features another too good to be true storyline. An 14th century English knight magically transports to modern time (what?) and falls in love with a super cute chemistry teacher. While the plot is totally unrealistic and would never happen in a million years, it’s the perfect movie to watch whist decorating the Christmas tree.

Have you watched any Christmas films lately, if so which ones?

    Aww I love this blog post Roxane! I watched The Princess Switch last December and it was so cute.
    I love a cheesy (and usually predictable Christmas film haha) so I’ll be sure to watch her new film, The Knight Before Christmas soon hehe. I also love Elf haha, Will Ferrel is hilarious. I still haven’t watched Love Actually yet (oops! It’s a classic so I better get onto that this month haha!)
    Oh and have you seen Last Christmas in cinemas, I haven’t watched it yet, but it sounds lovely 🙂
