Paige is on her way to meet her fiancé’s parents but is forced to hitch a ride with a married couple.
2. Journey Back to Christmas (2016)
This Hallmark movie is one of the most unique in the catalogue of holiday movies. Candace Cameron Bure plays a World War II nurse who travels back in time to 2016 and comes across a man who shows her the strong bonds of family while learning the true meaning of Christmas.
While Candace is the star of the show with her role as Hanna, Oliver Hudson (Jake) is a lighthearted, comedic addition to the Christmas classic.
3. Moonlight & Mistletoe (2008)
Moonlight and Mistletoe is the first film and the first holiday movie Bure starred in and is part of the Hallmark Mysteries. Holly Crosby (Candace) is the daughter of Nick Crosby (Tom Arnold) who owns an amusement park that celebrates Christmas all year long.
She begins to realize that Santaville is more of a priority for her father and so she leaves to build her life alone for a long time. However, Holly runs to rescue her father after hearing he had an accident by his employee, Peter (Christopher Wiehl).
Her surprising connection with Peter from her childhood sets the stage for a rollercoaster ride to love amidst her father’s amusement park nearly going under. She also finds the magic of Christmas once more.
4. The Heart of Christmas (2011)
Next up on the list of Christmas movies featuring Candace Cameron Bure, The Heart of Christmas is a Christian drama that aired on the Gospel Music Channel. One of the few Christmas movies based on a true story, this film pulls at your heartstrings and never let’s go even after the credits roll.
Megan Walsh (Candace Cameron Bure) encounters a family who is in a hurry to celebrate Christmas with a toddler who is diagnosed with leukemia. Through their story, Megan changes her attitude about life and learns to cherish those close to her.
5. Let it Snow (2013)
Starring Candace and Jesse Hutch, Let it Snow is all about bringing the Christmas spirit back to Candace’s character, Stephanie. Working as an executive for a company that owns property, she sets out to visit a family-owned lodge with the plan to turn it into a ski resort. However, the family selling the property is not too happy about the business plan.
While she is setting up the process to change the property, Stephanie runs into the family’s son (Brady) and begins to have romantic feelings for him and has a change of heart about Christmas.
6. Christmas Town (2019)
It wouldn’t be a proper Hallmark movie without a small town romance, Christmas Town follows Bure’s character, Lauren who stops in Grandon Falls on the way to her new job as a teacher where she meets a handyman by the name of Travis (Tim Rozon) and his foster child.
Her encounter with the community of Grandon Falls helps her see the magic of Christmas.
7. Switched for Christmas (2017)
A slight twist from the usual Hallmark movie, Switched for Christmas follows two identical twin sisters, both played by Candace who are planning Christmas parties but decide to switch lives for the holidays. Her daughter, Natasha Bure also starred in this movie and in the Aurora Teagarden Mystery series. Eion Bailey stars as Tom and Mark Deklin as Greg, the two male leads who have undeniable chemistry with Candace.
This heartwarming family movie introduces all of the aspects of other Hallmark movies but presents them in a way that keeps people guessing.
8. Christmas Under Wraps (2014)
One of the best Hallmark Christmas movies starring Candace Cameron Bure, Christmas Under Wraps follows the typical tropes with a predictable ending; however, Candace and Robert Pine come together to make this film shine.
Candace plays Dr. Lauren Brunell and accepts an offer to practice in Garland Alaska while losing out on an opportunity in Boston. At first, she looks at the small town position as only a fill in but eventually falls in love with the handyman, Andy, and the town.
9. The Christmas Contest (2021)
A memorable romantic comedy, The Christmas Contest follows Lara and Ben as they compete against each other in a Christmas contest to win money for a charity that they are interested in. Despite Lara and Ben falling out of a relationship, they soon stand at a crossroads between victory and love.
These kind of stories will have you rooting for the couple as they learn to confront their differences and find out what is truly important. The humor falls flat in some areas but the tension between Candace and John Brotherton makes this movie worth it.
10. If I Only Had Christmas (2020)
Not the best Hallmark movie by Candace Cameron Bure, but it’s still worth watching for its Wizard of Oz retelling. If I Only Had Christmas follows a cheerful publicist and a cynical Vice President who work together to help a charity in need during the holidays.
Warren Christie plays the VP who is also known for his roles in Apollo 18 and This Means War.
11. A Shoe Addict’s Christmas (2020)
