Snuggle up this Christmas in crisp new pyjamas and your favourite Hotter slippers. Turn on the TV, relax with a festive film and treat yourself to a cheeky mince pie or two.


If you can’t decide whether to watch a festive heart warmer, a comedy classic or a tear jerker, the team at Hotter are here to help!


One of my favourite Christmas films is ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. It makes me cry every time. It’s James Stewart at his best.

A film I love at Christmas is ‘Serendipity’. This is a must see for romantics. It gets you in the Christmas spirit seeling all the shops in New York decorated in Christmas lights and seeing skaters on the ice rink.

My festive film pick would be ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’. As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. All this soon goes wrong.

The best film ever is ‘Santa Claus The Movie’ with Dudley Moore, it brings back the magic every year. I loved it as a child and my kids love it as much as I did.

Lindsey, Finance


It has to be ‘The Holiday’. Romcom, chickflick and Christmas all thrown in! I never get tired of watching it.

Lesley, HR Business Partner


My favourite film is ‘Elf’. It’s set in New York, my favourite place!  My 2 daughters and I always watch it whilst putting up the Christmas tree.

Eleanor, Glasgow Store

I would highly recommend ‘Dr Seuss’ The Grinch’ starring Jim Carrey, it’s a great film to watch on a cold December day. Jim Carrey is one of my favourite actors and he plays the character perfectly.

Colin, Canterbury Store


‘Home Alone’ is the best film ever. It’s a funny family film suitable for all ages. It’s so funny and I know all the words, it drives my husband mad.

Jo, Sutton Coldfield Store
