Lindsay Lohan has an early holiday gift for fans.

The 36-year-old actress released a slew of photos from her upcoming Netflix rom-com “Falling for Christmas” Monday — an iconic date from her star-making 2004 flick “Mean Girls.”

Lohan — who appears in the holiday film alongside “Glee” alum Chord Overstreet — plays an engaged but snobby hotel heiress who gets hurt in a skiing accident.

In a classic rom-com trope, she gets amnesia and is cared for by an attractive man and his daughter around Christmas.

She recovers and spoiler alert … they fall in love.

In addition to putting out the teaser on the date from “Mean Girls” in which her Cady Heron character gets unforgettably asked out by Aaron Samuels, played by Jonathan Bennett, Lohan also teased her return to the big screen in an interview with Netflix.

“It’s such a refreshing, heartwarming romantic comedy, and I miss doing those kinds of movies,” Lohan said.

“All the stunt scenes were really fun for me because I haven’t gotten to do that much in a lot of my films … When I’m flying off the hill, attempting to ski well and not doing it,” she continued.

Hallmark Channel’s “A Christmas Waltz” director Janeen Damian is at the helm and is also the screenwriter for the project alongside writers Jeff Bonnett, Ron Oliver and Michael Damian.

The movie also stars George Young, Jack Wagner and Olivia Perez. The flick will hit the streaming service Nov. 10.

The Long Island native inked a multi-year deal with Netflix in March, and will be starring in three films for the streamer.

Netflix’s director of independent films, Christina Rogers, revealed the news earlier this year.

“We’re so happy with our collaboration with Lindsay to date, and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership with her. We look forward to bringing more of her films to our members around the world,” Rogers told the Hollywood Reporter.

“Falling for Christmas” is Lohan’s first major on-screen lead role in almost 10 years. She was last seen in 2013’s “The Canyons.”

She did appear in the 2015 short film “Till Human Voices Wake Us” and had a small supporting part in the 2019 indie “Among the Shadows.”
