One of my favorite christmas albums of all time
This christmas album is gold. It’s super mellow and gives me all kinds of cozy christmas vibes. Love She & Him!
Talented duo but depressing
This is the most depressing collection of holiday tunes I've ever heard. Seriously made me consider drowning myself in a pool of eggnog about halfway through the album. They are talented musicians but this is not cheery or uplifting holiday music at all. Maybe I'm missing the point.
Just heard the most lackluster version of "Sleigh Ride" on a restaurant's #muzak -- and it was from this album! Air Supply's version has more holiday spirit.
Plastic, cheap version of the classics
Just someone doing a cheap version of the beautiful originals. This fast food version of the classic meat and potatoes versions. This should be called "discount christmas"
Really like their spin...
I must start by saying I'm not in love with the whole album, a few songs didn't go with my past feel of the song...but that being said five of the song on here are wonderful and are on my all time Christmas list of music, right beside Frank Sinatra's Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Bing Crosby's White Christmas, and other classics like these...
Not What You Want
First song, Christmas Waltz, is fantastic. Stripped-down acoustic with Zooey's charming vocal. However, after that, I have trouble finding the spirit. From the cover, you'd hope for fun, pop-tinged retro-loving Christmas tunes. I love Xmas music, and I love She and Him--but I do not love this album. It should have been called 'Blue Christmas'--it just has a sad feeling to it. I buy Xmas cds and I listen to them every year. I have not listed to this cd since I bought it in 2011.
These two can write and produce some really fine pop music...this Christmas album just sounds like product.
How Christmas music should be played
She & Him brings back the relaxation of Christmas vacation. They bring back the idea of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Just the thing to take your mind off of the stress of buying presents and really rewinds you to what Christmas is all about; chillaxing with those you hold most dear.
A Very Pleasurable & Warm Christmas

Let me start by saying I absolutely adore Zooey Deschanel. New Girl is one of my favorite shows. This album is PERFECTION. Every single song is wonderfully executed. Being the ukulele player that I am i love how Zooey tied it in. My favorites are - Christmas Day, Christmas Wish, Sleigh Ride, Silver Bells, Blue Christmas (the only version of the song I'm really crazy about), and Little St. Nick. I cannot wait to listen to this on iTunes AND vinyl.
A very soothing fun Christmas album!
I think they done a great job with this album. Great guitar tones and playing!
