The most wonderful time of the year is not complete without an amazing soundtrack. I think a Christmas playlist is one that has a mix of classic holiday songs and newer ones (c’mon, Mariah Carey has to make an appearance!) That’s why I have curated my version of the perfect Christmas playlist that you can listen to while you’re baking cookies, decorating the tree, or making a gingerbread house. 


My Cozy Christmas Playlist

The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole 

Last Christmas – Wham!

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! – Frank Sinatra 

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams 

All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey 

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas – Michael Bublé 

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee 

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – Dean Martin 

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Kelly Clarkson 

Do They Know Its Christmas? – Band Aid 

Frosty the Snowman – Ella Fitzgerald 

Winter Wonderland – Tony Bennet 

Baby it’s Cold Outside – Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé 

(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays – Perry Como 

Believe – Josh Groban 

Sleigh Ride – Ella Fitzgerald 

Holly Jolly Christmas – Burl Ives 


For me, classic Christmas songs bring a sense of nostalgia. They remind me of when I was a kid, eagerly waiting for Santa to stop at my house. Although listening to the same songs every year can get repetitive, it also brings the coziness we’re all craving as the weather gets colder. Adding a newer version of an old classic is also a great way to change up a playlist!
