When the holiday season shows up on the calendar, there’s no better way to enjoy the cold weather than by cozying up on the couch to watch some of your favorite Christmas movies. It’s easy to treat yourself, your family, and your close friends to some holiday magic. Simply queue up your favorite movies on Netflix or other streaming service, grab a stack of cozy blankets, and of course, you can’t forget to stock up on snacks. We’ve got some expert tips to make your viewing experience extra festive—and delicious!

Streaming with the Family

There’s no shortage of holiday movies that are perfect for enjoying with your family (even if the kids are all grown up!) When you’re streaming Christmas movies with the family, you’ll want to have some easy snacks everyone can help themselves to.

Watching a classic like A Christmas Story or It’s a Wonderful Life? Match the theme with a classic fireside favorite like nuts. Your family will love digging into our Sweet & Salty Nut Sampler or Savory & Spicy Nut Sampler while they watch, and there are plenty of flavors in each of these gifts to please everyone on the couch.


Food-and-fun filled movies like The Grinch or Elf call for sweet treats and chocolate! Our Holiday Sweets Gift Tower adds a festive touch to the table and is filled with sweets, popcorn, and candies to share. Or, add Snowflake Pretzels to holiday-themed snack board of kid-approved treats.


Streaming with Your Besties

Whether you’re spending the weekend in with your roommates or inviting a few friends to stop by for a holiday movie marathon, everyone has more fun when cupcakes and wine are involved. There are tons of options for Christmas movies to watch with your friends–forever-favorites like Love Actually, highly anticipated new releases, and seemingly endless Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. You’re going to want to make sure to have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand to keep everyone satisfied until the last credits roll.


Create a hearty meat and cheese spread with flavors from our Happy Holiday Summer Sausage & Cheese Gift Box or Be Merry Give Back Gift Box. To get extra festive, the Christmas Tree Board Gift Set comes with a super cute Christmas tree-shaped cheese board to make serving easy and fun.


If you want to have an expertly-paired flavor experience with wine, you can’t go wrong with the Happy Holiday Flavors & Wine Gift Set. It comes with a bottle of holiday-exclusive Bell & Bough Cabernet Sauvignon perfect for toasting to the season!
