Forewarning on this one- if you haven't seen it, just know that you'll be sobbing by the end. Keanu Reeves & Charlize Theron are two complete opposites who decide to spend the month of November together, after she convinces him she can change his life. Although it might seem like they have nothing in common, they end up falling in love, and November is their forever month. It's not technically a holiday movie, but there's thanksgiving, and plenty of fall inspired colors to put you in a seasonal mood. Without giving too much away, there's some unexpected events that cause these two to fall apart, but it's worth the watch to make your heart burst. You'll never look at November the same.

What's a romantic holiday list without a "Hallmark Channel" movie to make you cry? When a former wealthy trust fund kid (Jessy Schram) finds out her family went broke, she moves to a struggling pumpkin farm hoping to fix it up, where she meets a handsome farm manager (Jesse Hutch). They inevitably don't see eye to eye, but eventually find their way to each other. The beauty of the fall colors alone is worth the watch. True to from, it's a typical "Hallmark" styled rom-com, but you'll find yourself watching till the end. It's sappy and a little cheesy, but it's the perfect pre and post thanksgiving movie to enjoy.

This is one of the holiday movies that you've probably already seen dozens of times, but it's one of those movies that seems to never get old. The film focuses on the lives of eight separate couples, and the drama they find themselves in during the holiday season. It covers all the bases- young love, unrequited wanting, and even heartbreak. Plus, who could forget that famous professing of love over cardboard scene? Big names stars like Kiera Knightly and Colin Firth lend their acting chops to this cult classic film, and whether you love it or loathe it, it will always make for an entertaining watch.

This movie doesn't get nearly enough praise or mention, and we think that should change. It often gets overlooked for other Christmas rom-coms (looking at you "Love Actually") but it's far too wonderful of a movie to be skipped. Cameron Diaz & Kate Winslet star as two women who swap lives to avoid their own romantic turmoils, by renting each other's homes. Jack Black & Jude Law also appear as their respective love interests, with some great performances too. It's a lovey-dovey feel good holiday movie that is bound to be your new favorite.

Number 6- "White Christmas"

Released in 1954, this classic Christmas movie is not only a perfect romantic choice, it's also good for the entire family. Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney (George Clooney's aunt), Judy Haynes are just a few of the big names that illuminate the screen in this one of a kind film. Two WW2 friends team up with two sister's to perform a Christmas show, and along the way create some Christmas miracles with plenty of singing and dancing scenes to boot. It's THE original Christmas movie that is a must watch for everyone, and if you haven't seen it yet, you should immediately amend that.

This is another Christmas movie that is an absolute must see. It's a timeless classic that is guaranteed to bring you both joy and sadness all in one go. James Stewart plays Georgia Bailey, a depressed and frustrated man who is considering the worst thing imaginable, when he meets a guardian angel who shows him just how much he's loved, and how different things would be if he simply never existed. It's a beautiful and heartwarming story that everyone will love. Be aware- you're going to want to keep the tissues close watching this film- it will pull at your heart strings in ways you never expected.

Number 8- "Holidate"

Netflix has produced several fantastic holiday rom-coms over the years, but this movie is one of the best. Emma Roberts and Australian actor Luke Bracey are two millennials who are sick of being single for the holidays. They agree to become one another's platonic "significant other" for an entire year of holidays. The only catch? No feelings allowed. We're sure you can guess, but over time feelings develop and the film follows their journey from strangers to possibly something more. It's an underrated, cute rom-com that might seem cheesy, but is actually pretty wonderful.

Number 9- "Last Christmas"

This rom-com is a fanstastic watch. Emilia Clarke of GOT fame, and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians) star in this endearing holiday movie about love, hope and even the meaning of the holiday season. Clarke plays a troubled young woman who finds herself working at an all year round Christmas shop, when she crosses paths with a handsome stranger (Golding). Their friendship turns into something more, and along the way there's discoveries about love, life, and everything in between. It's a beautifully done movie that's perfect to watch when you're cozy on the couch with your sweetheart.

Nine lives are intertwined for one of the most hopeful nights of the year in this ensemble cast film. Zac Efron, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker- there's no shortage of well known stars. It's a sweet and heartwarming film that shows how the lives of different people in New York City are unexpectedly mixed together on New Years Eve. There's romance, friendship, and familial relationships that you'll be invested in all the way through. You might even be surprised with how some of their stories relate to each other. It's incredibly cute and worth a watch during the holiday's.
