Binge-watching party, anyone?
Hallmark movies never fail at drawing us in close with their heartwarming romances, charming small-town settings, and feel-good messages about family and tradition. We’re suckers for the whole Hallmark package that always ends up tied nicely with a bow. It just never fails. Over the years, there have been some great Hallmark movies that rise above the rest and solidify themselves as the cream of the Hallmark crop—a real accomplishment, we might add—whether it’s a Countdown to Christmas special premiere or just an everyday (any day, we say) romantic drama. These are the movies that get the recipe just right. We’ve rounded up the very best Hallmark movies of all-time that aren’t limited to the Countdown to Christmas! Get ready for some re-watchable, binge-worthy suggestions.
A ROYAL CHRISTMAS
A young woman who is a devoted seamstress at her father’s tailoring business finds out her doting European boyfriend is actually a prince. She travels to his home over Christmas to find a less-than-enthused mother, Queen Isadora, who makes her feel more at home with the servants than the royal family. Starring Lacey Chabert, Jane Seymour, and Stephen Hagan.
WHEN CALLS THE HEART CHRISTMAS
Living in a turn-of-the-century coal mining town, a young teacher gets in the holiday spirit by leading the Christmas committee, preparing her students for the Christmas play, and finding the perfect Christmas tree with a charming soldier. But the town experiences some troubles threatening a perfect Christmas, leaving it up to the close-knit residents to save it. Starring Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing, Lori Loughlin, and Jack Wagner.
A CROWN FOR CHRISTMAS
A young woman accepts a position as a governess for a European princess after getting fired from her maid position at a ritzy New York hotel. She initially butts heads with the troubled girl, but eventually becomes a role model and friend to her—while falling for her widowed father, King Maximillian, at the same time. But a scheming countess wants the king’s heart and hand in marriage and is determined to make the governess’ life difficult. Starring Danica McKellar and Rupert Penry-Jones.
