Best Christmas Movies to watch on American Netflix Only

I have a confession... I am a huge sucker for made-for-tv movies. Please don't judge me! 

I honestly don't know what it is about them that makes me feel so good. I don't know if it's the low budget lighting, awkward editing and cuts between takes, or the script that sounds so cheesy, you'd swear it was written on a cheddar block... but for some reason or other, I can't get enough. Especially at Christmastime. 

I invite you to join me on my journey as we go deeper into the heart of Christmas. These films take it pretty far and are for the true Christmas-lovers only. So grab a candy cane, a cup of hot chocolate and let's get watching! 

1. Christmas Cupid (2010)
First on our list is Christmas Cupid, a movie about "a workaholic publicist [who is] haunted by a newly deceased client who pressures her to reform and reunite with a former flame to find love by Christmas" (Netflix, 2013). This was the very first made-for-tv christmas movie that I watched on Netflix and I thought it was SO cute and adorable and you will love it.

(Hint: You may be able to watch the full movie on YouTube because I saw it on there when I was browsing if you don't have American Netflix)

2. Holiday in Handcuffs (2007)
Starring Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez (aka Sabrina the teenage witch and A.C. Slater) this movie starts out a little slow and more than a little creepy when Hart kidnaps Lopez and forces him to be her fake boyfriend. But it is redeemed in the end, with a very touching and special connection made between the two '90s stars. In the end I really found myself smiling and ended up loving this holiday film.

3. 12 Dates of Christmas (2011)
I love, love, love (love, love, love) this movie. The Netflix description says, "Set up on a blind date with handsome Miles on Christmas Eve, Kate gets 12 chances to relive the date over and over again until she sets things right" (2013). And I know what you're probably thinking: "That's gotta be so annoying with her living the same day over again... 12 times!" But you'd be wrong. The way they do it is so cute, and hilarious that you actually can't wait for her to start the next day and see what she does. Perfect holiday film!

4. Desperately Seeking Santa (2011)
"After devising a 'sexy Santa' contest to increase Christmas sales, young marketing guru Jennifer winds up falling for the winner, a local hero" (Netflix, 2013). This movie is cute. Most of these Christmas films seem to deal with women who've become stuck up, or too involved in their work, therefore not having time to date, and then realizing they've been missing out on the perfect man. They're pretty much all the same, but this movie has a really cute leading man, who's super sweet and charming. 

That's it for my list of made-for-tv Christmas movies. If there's a made-for-tv Christmas movie that you love and I didn't include on this list please let me know because I would love to watch it. Thanks for reading and have yourself a merry little Christmas
