You, Me & The Christmas Trees (Hallmark) –

An arborist falls in love with a farmer as she tries to save his trees before the town tree lighting.

There’s nothing more cosy than a Hallmark Christmas movie that stars Danika McKellar – honestly she just exudes so much Christmas spirit and light, you know you’re in for a treat. This movie will give you everything you need from a Hallmark movie, from all the Christmas traditions to all of the annual Christmas events. It makes me jealous that I don’t live in a small cosy-knit town where there’s so much going on and the streets look like an enormous Santa’s Grotto. The chemistry between Olivia and Jack was an absolute treat to watch, filled with so much charm exuding from both of their personalities, there was never going to be a moment where these two didn’t fall completely in love with each other.

Boyfriends of Christmas Past (Hallmark) –

Leading up to Christmas, Lauren is visited by the ghosts of four ex-boyfriends. She must learn to open her heart or risk losing her best friend, Nate.

I knew this movie was going to be a strong stand-out from Hallmark’s line-up this year as soon as I saw the diversity within the cast and it did not disappoint. That and the fact the leading man is called Nate (if you know me, you know I adore that name), I knew this was going to be the perfect Christmas watch. Our leading lady, Lauren, was an absolute delight to watch as she went on the journey of reuniting with her ex-boyfriends, in order to discover where the love of her life truly stood. This plot line was really fun and had a little unique twist on your typical Hallmark movies, making it that much more of an enjoyable watch. I especially loved going back in time to meet different generations of Lauren’s ex-boyfriends. Each of them were so different from the other, but so incredible making you wonder why on earth Lauren had ever let them go to begin with, but despite Lauren’s commitment issues, their was a positive to being so guarded as it led her to the person she should have been with all along. Seriously, Nate’s really do not let me down and like every other, Lauren’s best friend Nate was a dream come true who deserves all the love and affection in the world. Through every step of Lauren’s journey, there was Nate being her biggest cheerleader and although Lauren is completely blind-sighted to how perfect he is for her, it is clear as day for the other characters and viewers. This was the most perfect Christmas movie and my number one favourite of the year so far.

Christmas in Harmony (Hallmark) –

Harmony is tricked into auditioning for the Holiday Chorus, directed by an ex-boyfriend. By Christmas Eve, they could be harmonizing in the key of love.

❆❆❆

I was very excited to watch this one for two reasons; the diversity within the cast (yes Hallmark, we’re finally getting somewhere!) and Ashleigh Murray being our leading lady. If that isn’t enough to grab your attention, you MUST see the stunning movie cover – Hallmark have gone above and beyond for this movie. Harmony is the most admirable woman and is not afraid to stand up for herself, except when it comes to her own music. Working to make others dreams come true, she lost the path to her own dreams along the way. In comes her ex-boyfriend, Kyle, who is determined to make Harmony see the true worth within her and finally reach for her own dreams. Harmony and Kyle were the perfect second-chance romance with a devastating past due to miscommunication, however, they sure did make up for lost time and created something more beautiful than what they had the first time round. This movie is just filled with love and joy, thanks to the stunning music composed, especially that final song – just stunning! A second favourite of the year and definitely a re-watch.
