The Ultimate List of Sapphic Holiday Romances

Sapphic Holiday Romance

For many of us, this is the perfect time of year to cuddle up with a good book, especially some sapphic holiday romances that puts you in a festive mood.

So I compiled the ultimate list of sapphic holiday romances—and when I say “holiday,” I’m talking about romance novels that revolve around the winter holidays (or, if you live in the southern hemisphere, the holidays in December).

I found a total of 373 sapphic holiday romances! Most of them are Christmas romances, but there are also a few sapphic stories revolving around Hanukkah or New Year’s. I couldn’t find any sapphic stories featuring Kwanza or Diwali—if you know of any, please let me know!


370+ sapphic holiday romances

Below, you’ll find the ultimate list of sapphic holiday romances. The books are listed in alphabetical order by the authors’ last names, with one exception: I’ve taken the liberty of listing my own books at the top as a little reward for compiling this list.

If there’s an audiobook, I have linked to Audible. For the ebook versions, I have linked to Amazon, Apple Books, and the publisher’s or author’s website (if applicable).



Is there a sapphic holiday romance missing from this list?

If you know of a sapphic holiday romance that’s not on my list, let me know, and I’ll add it!
