Christmas is coming up fast and that means the busiest travel period of the year is nearly upon us.

Fortunately, there are plenty of special hotel packages available this December to take some of the stress out of holiday travel. Here are three worth considering for your Christmas list.

Christmas by Candlelight Package

Where: Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center; Southbridge, Massachusetts

Rates: $149 per night/double occupancy 

Notable Amenities: Indoor pool, sports courts and business center

One of the biggest perks of New England's Southbridge Hotel is its proximity to Old Sturbridge Village, a premier attraction guaranteed to get hotel guests into the holiday spirit.

The hotel's Christmas by Candlelight package includes overnight accommodations and breakfast for two, but most importantly, two passes to the Old Sturbridge Village daily Christmas by Candlelight activities, which include horse-drawn sleigh rides and an appearance by Santa Claus. Guests passing through can anticipate plenty of holiday music, treats and cheer, with costumed carolers serenading them as they survey dozens of handmade gingerbread houses. 

This is a great package for travelers looking to visit the Northeast on a budget this winter, as they can add a guest for just $38.

Guests can book this package online or over the phone but will have to hurry as Dec. 18-20 is the last available weekend.

Christmas Stocking Stuffer Picnic Basket 

Where: The Hotel Zamora; St. Pete Beach, Florida

Rates: $220 per person

Notable Amenities: Castile Restaurant & Lounge, sun terrace and outdoor whirlpool spa

Hotel Zamora is where foodies will want to be this winter. The boutique hotel is offering a Christmas Stocking Stuffer Picnic Basket for two that includes stuffed challah lamb sandwiches made with roasted garlic leg of lamb, shaved rosemary, tzatziki, oven-dried tomatoes and mint pesto. 

To follow that up, guests will receive candy-cane peppermint cheesecake lollipops. 

Keep in mind this package also includes a bottle of champagne to help spur the seasonal celebration.

Tuscan Christmas Package

Where: The Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa; Barga, Italy

Rates: $329 per night

Notable Amenities: Full service spa, fitness center and pool

Located outside of Florence and Pisa, this Italian resort offers a relaxing holiday package that allows guests to celebrate while experiencing one of Europe's most coveted destinations: Tuscany.
