6 Best Netflix Movies (& 3 Shows) To Watch On Christmas Day 2021

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! To help you find what to watch on Netflix for Christmas Day 2021, we’ve shared the best Netflix movies (and a few shows) for you to check out.

It’s really hard to find a solid movie to watch. Sometimes I feel like I spend the time it takes to watch a full movie trying to find something to stream. If that’s you, we’re here to help.

Let’s start the list with the best Netflix movies to watch for Christmas Day 2021 below.

Best Netflix Christmas Movies

We’ve picked a mix of the most popular Netflix movies right now, as well as some Christmas hits on Netflix.

Let’s start the list with Red notice.

Red Notice

Red Notice is officially the most popular (and most expensive!) Netflix movie of all time. It stars Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot. The story follows an FBI profiler who is forced to team up with an art thief to take down another. It’s a great choice for the whole family on Christmas Day.

The unforgivable

The unforgivable is the biggest Netflix movie release of December 2021. The Sandra Bullock-directed feature follows a woman who is released from prison years after committing a horrific crime. It is NOT a good choice for the whole family this year.

A Californian Christmas

A Californian Christmas and A Californian Christmas: the city lights are the romantic Christmas movie choices for Christmas Day. You have seen this movie before, so it will be very heartwarming.

A boy called Christmas

A boy called Christmas is my new favorite Netflix Christmas movie for the whole family this year. He has an incredible cast, including Henry Lawfull, Toby Jones, Sally Hawkins, Kristen Wiig, Michiel Huisman, Zoe Colletti, Stephen Merchant, Jim Broadbent, and Maggie Smith.

It is based on the book of the same name by Matt Haig.

Army of thieves

Army of thieves is my favorite Netflix movie of the year. This is the prequel to Army of the dead, but there are no zombies and all that. Instead, it’s a heist film that features the origin story of cracker Ludwig Dieter. This movie is amazing!

Enola Holmes

Enola Holmes premiered in 2020, so it’s not really new, but it’s a great movie to watch with the whole family. Millie Bobby Brown plays Enola, Sherlock’s younger sister. After her mother goes missing, Enola uses her wits and skills to find her and gets drawn into another mystery along the way.

Best Christmas Netflix Shows

If movies aren’t your style, there are plenty of great Netflix shows to watch this Christmas.

Let’s start the list with The silent sea.

The silent sea

The silent sea premiered on Netflix on Christmas Eve 2021, so today is the second day to watch Netflix’s new original series. It stars Gong Yoo, Bae Doona, Lee Joon, Kim Sun-young, and Lee Moo-Saeng.

The Korean drama tells the story of a group of people who travel through space to retrieve something from a space station. That looks interesting!

Sweet magnolia

Sweet magnolia is the Christmas wellness choice! The second season of the hit series arrives on Netflix on February 4, 2022.

For those who don’t know, the series follows three best friends their entire lives trying to navigate various things life has in store for them: parenthood, kids, work, relationships, and more.


It’s been a year, can you believe it? – because Bridgerton created on Netflix. For this reason, it’s a staple on Netflix on Christmas Day if you’re a fan of the series.

Bridgerton Season 2 has officially finished production and is coming to Netflix soon.
