From iconic offerings to nostalgic treats and modern classics, there’s bound to be something for everyone among this little lot…

It’s A Wonderful Life

Undoubtedly one of the greatest Christmas movies of all time, the emotional rollercoaster featuring the fantastic Donna Reed and James Stewart packs a fantastic message about how much of a difference one person can make in the world without ever realising it. 

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Okay, is it a Halloween or a Christmas film - why not both!? Tim Burton’s classic animation sees Pumpkin King Jack Skellington longing to spread the joy of Christmas, but Jack’s obsession with Santa may actually have just the opposite effect… 

The Holiday

The festive rom-com sees Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) desperate to beet away from their disastrous love lives. The pair agree to do a home switch with Iris heading off to L.A., and Amanda goes to London hoping to enjoy some relaxing alone time - that is before Graham (Jude Law) and Miles (Jack Black) appear on the scene to mix things up…  

Home Alone

What is there to say about this one? The movie that inspired a million childhood ‘booby traps’, Macaulay Culkin stars in this comedy smash about a boy who has to face down two would-be burglars after he is  accidentally left behind when his family goes to Paris for the holidays. 


Surely one of Will Ferrell’s greatest roles, Buddy - a baby who crawled into Santa’s sack one Christmas Eve a long time ago and was raised as an elf goes looking for his true place in the world…

Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The grumpy Grinch (Jim Carrey) lives a solitary life in a cave on Mount Crumpet with his dog Max. As Christmas Day nears The Grinch grows more and more annoyed by the citizens of Whoville, and formulates a plan to steal the holiday joy from them.

Fortunately his scheme doesn’t go quite to plan when a little girl from the village enters his life.

The Miracle on 34th Street 

The 1947 classic has been remade numerous times over the years but in our humble opinion, the original remains the best! The beloved festive stalwart about a special friendship between a young girl and a magical Macy's Santa is b round to leave you filled with the spirit of Christmas!

The Polar Express

Directed by Robert Zemeckis and featuring the wonderful Tom Hanks in a number of roles, The Polar Express sees a doubting young boy go on an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole that opens up a world of  wonder that will stay with him for a lifetime. 

The Santa Clause

Another childhood favourite, while delivering presents to Scott Calvin's (Tim Allen) house on Christmas Eve, Santa slips off his roof and dies. 

Following the instructions left by Santa, Scott puts on the red suit and gets on the sleigh with his son Charlie (Eric Lloyd) to save Christmas. 

But what Scott didn’t realise was that this wasn’t a one-night-only deal… 

Love Actually

And what better way to finish than with this Richard Curtis masterpiece. Featuring an anthology of love stories set over the Christmas period, we follow nine characters through the highs, lows, excitement, and disappointment of love.
