Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage (also known as Thomas Kinkade's Home for Christmas Cottage and simply Christmas Cottage) is a 2008 Christmas biopic directed by Michael Campus (the first film he had directed in over thirty years). It stars Jared Padalecki as painter Thomas Kinkade and features Peter O'Toole, Marcia Gay Harden, and Aaron Ashmore.

The film was originally intended for a theatrical release in December 2007, but due to final edits and music rights, was delayed until November 2008. Released in only a few overseas markets (and not in the United States), it earned only $41,724.
