Mailbox favourite Christmas films
Posted on December 23, 2016
Forget the naughty or nice list, this year the only list that counts is our guide to Christmas films. From our bars and restaurants, to shops, salons and more, we asked the staff behind your Mailbox to tell us their all-time favourite Christmas films. So book in a sofa day and grab the popcorn; there’s no better way to get in the festive spirit!
We’re starting with an absolute classic as chosen by the team at Armani Collezioni, Home Alone! The Christmas comedy sees Kevin get left behind as his family rushes off for the festive season, but with plenty to keep him occupied in the meantime, it’s anything but a quiet Christmas! First released in 1990, this is sure to be a must-see for years to come.
It looks like Home Alone is certainly a favourite amongst the Mailbox staff, with the team at Nicky Clarke choosing the sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York! Back to his usual antics (and even featuring a cameo by the new US President), Kevin tries to stop the Sticky Bandits robbing a toy store just before Christmas – why not try films one and two back to back for a real festive treat?
Miller & Carter
It’s Jingle All The Way for the assistant manager, Huram, at Miller & Carter. A childhood favourite that he’ll never get tired of, the classic stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a desperate father frantically racing around Minneapolis in order to get his hands on the sold-out action doll, Turbo Man!
Picking just one film proved too much of a challenge for the team at Tom’s Kitchen, who narrowed down their festive favourites to a top three; Love Actually, The Holiday and The Muppets’ Christmas Carol.
Whilst Love Actually and The Holiday are both brimming with that festive-feel-good feeling and enough romance to melt even the coldest hearts, The Muppets’ Christmas Carol is one for the whole family to enjoy. An adaption of the classic Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’, we warn you, the songs are catchy enough to have you singing them all week.
Elf was the unanimous vote in the Tommy Hilfiger team and it’s no surprise why! The famously quoted film features Buddy who is accidentally brought up in the North Pole amongst Santa’s elves. Feeling as though he doesn’t quite fit in, he goes on the search for his real father in New York City. Guaranteed to have you laughing from start to finish, if you haven’t seen this one yet, you’re definitely missing out.
