Sexy Christmas Songs
To help you jingle all the way through the holidays.
Whether you’re hosting a party or you just want something to put on for a cold winter’s night in with your partner, we’ve got some music recommendations. A good mix of contemporary hits and classics of some sexy Christmas music is sure to be a welcome addition to your holiday season. We’ve put together some suggestions to spread holiday cheer as loudly as quietly for all to hear as you prefer.
“All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey
It’s a classic for a reason. “All I Want for Christmas” combines holiday cheer and longing into a genuinely fun, up-tempo bop. Sexy doesn’t always have to mean slow. It’s the rare high energy number, so if you want to inject a little liveliness into the evening it deserves a spot on your playlist.
“Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt
It’s had several covers at this point, but Eartha Kitt’s original still reigns supreme. Kitt’s iconic purr elevates “Santa baby” from a novelty Christmas song to a sensual, seasonal serenade. It’s a perfect addition to any playlist, be it for a grown-up party or a family get-together. It’s also a great choice for Christmas karaoke if you want to impress your guests/friends/inlaws without getting too out there.
“I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” performed by Dolly Parton
There’s an odd number of Christmas songs about seducing Santa Claus, but this is the only one where the seduction appears to have worked. And we can see why! While this song is always a bit tongue-in-cheek song, the sensuality fluctuates depending on the artist. If you’re looking for a soundtrack for trying to lure that special someone under the mistletoe, we recommend Dolly Parton’s iconic version.
“Last Christmas” by Wham! Ft. George Michael
This year, we’d like to encourage you to lose Whammageddon. The song might be about a breakup, but we can all agree that it has the perfect makeup—or things are going well—vibes. It’s got a great beat if you want to dance. . . or do something else.
“Something About December” by Christina Perri
A total underrated gem, “Something About December” could easily become you and your partner’s new fireside favorite. The sultry song is a relaxed departure from a lot of other holiday hits, focusing mostly on the warm glow of the season, the pleasure of spending time with the ones you love, and enjoying this magical time of year.
“I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” by Frank Sinatra
Ol Blue Eyes’ enduring appeal is that he doesn’t just sound like he’s singing: he sounds like he’s singing to you. If you’re looking to create an intimate environment with a little holiday flare thrown in, “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” deserves to be somewhere in the queue.
“Let it Snow” Performed by Multiple Artists
There’s something so nice about the idea of being snowed in with a special someone. Even if you’re not getting a picturesque white Christmas this year, you can still recreate the feeling with your partner. “Let it Snow” is a popular holiday hit, so you’ve got plenty of versions to choose from.

Anything by Michael Bublé
Now if anything says “sexy” and “Christmas,” it’s Michael Bublé’s buttery voice. He’s become synonymous with Christmas music over the past decade (much like Nat King Cole or Dean Martin, who are also great choices across the board). If you need to pad the run-time of your Christmas playlist, just add his whole album and enjoy.
