Synopsis (via Lifetime)

Megan uses the weeks leading up to every Christmas to help around with any Christmas related tasks. When the opportunity arrives to save a Christmas party and dazzle her crush, she must choose between the man of her dreams and Mr. Right.

Thoughts

Megan is a crafty badass bitch who makes adorable Christmas ornaments. She solves a holiday emergency and wears a holiday tool belt while doing it. Christmas for Hire is her business name. Megan can make paper flowers, bake and decorate holiday cookies, and throw together a party for the entire hockey team in no time. While having little time for herself or, more importantly, DATING!

Her friend, Jen, pushes Megan to date and tries to set her up with a single father named Chase. You can’t force love, though. Two men, Mike and Kurt, hire Megan. They work for a store called Trinkets and Toys and need a fantastic Christmas store display to impress investor David. (Who is obsessed with Millennial aesthetic.) David loves Megan and is excited about her pitch about Christmas. Kurt confuses Megan for another woman a Megan, who is a business negotiator who was late. They decide to keep decorator Megan on if she will agree to work for them. She declines continually until her business needs extra money. Then she takes the gig. 

The next morning Megan works on the store, and the window display looks nice and will increase foot traffic. David is impressed with Megan’s work, and Kurt is hypercritical. Kurt and Megan run some errands and he sees a sad little girl crying over spilled milk (or hot cocoa.) Kurt spills on himself to make her laugh. Then Kurt changes his shirt in front of Megan, which is unprofessional, but I appreciated a shirtless hunk in this movie! Then Megan talks about her dream to blog full time professionally. (I’m with you, Megan! That would be a dream. This moderately successful blog barely covers my Starbucks habit. Support Lifetime Uncorked by leaving a $3 tip.  ) Then they have a snowball fight.

Megan goes on a date with Chase, and it goes well, even if he isn’t incredibly impressive. They agree to go on a second date. The second date is at a fancy holiday party. Chase offers to help make Megan’s blog look more professional and offers her a job. At the same party, Kurt shows up, and they end up “dancing” (it is terrible.) together while Chase networks. Then they make youtube videos together about crafting to make Megan’s blog more genuine. In contrast, Kurt throws all his big shot resources at Megan and films videos that are trying to change her image. She has an amicable breakup with Chase.

Kurt and Megan fight about a deal offered by David going against Megan’s intuition. To make it up to her, Kurt asks David to donate in Megan’s name to a Big Brother/Sister program. He also funds a DIY kit partnership with Megan and the toystore. They decide to be partners in business and in life. (Which never really works out.) They kiss. The end!

Side Note

Minority Report: Jenny, Ashley, Mike, 

I really liked the female lead in this movie. The whole live triangle thing was not working for me.
