Is anyone else already watching Hallmark Christmas Movies? No? Just Me? 🙂 OK, maybe a better question is, how many of you WANT to be watching Hallmark Christmas Movies right now? That’s right, all of you!
I’ve never been on set for a Hallmark Christmas Movie myself, but I don’t have to be there to know exactly what it would feel like. Here’s the recipe for a good (and somewhat cheesy) holiday movie:
- 1 part a relaxing, but exciting, “holiday spirit” atmosphere
- 1 part snowy mountains
- Dozens of candy canes
- A real evergreen tree decorated to the max
- 1 part falling in love by the fireplace
- 1 part baked goods
- 1 part light family drama that works out in the end
Just mix it all together and add some hopeful and uplifting music—with some sleigh bells, of course!

I like to bake some during the holidays, but I’m definitely not the baker my grandma is, so to get all the awesome fragrances I love in the kitchen, without the mess and effort, I use my Wax warmers and Plugables® Home Fragrancers:
And finally, since the holidays can be stressful (with the inevitable light family drama), I try to create a calming atmosphere in all the bedrooms:
I may or may not consistently walk around my house reenacting various scenes from my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies… 😉
