The Magic of Christmas – The Best UK Christmas Adverts

The Magic of Christmas – The Best UK Christmas Adverts

Christmas must be close now that we’re seeing all the fantastic Christmas adverts. Our expectations are set so high, and this year’s have not disappointed so far. Two of the most recently released from Warburtons and Sainsburys are brilliant, and must be the top contenders this year.

As we’ve come over all Christmassy and nostalgic, we’re running a little giveaway. Head over to our Facebook page and let us know which Christmas advert is your favourite and we’ll enter you in a prize draw; five lucky people will each win a £10 gift voucher to spend on the keepsake of your choice.

Why do we love Christmas adverts so much?

The good ones manage to capture what Christmas is all about: celebrating as a family, wanting to buy or make something special for the ones we love, and spending quality time with those we are closest to.

We’ve been trying to compile our top five adverts and it’s been really, really hard to pick! See what you think of our choices, then let us know your favourites.

5. Last year’s Boots Advert made most people who watched it cry, we all loved the effort a family went to late at night on Christmas Day to surprise their mum who had been working as a nurse

4 Sainsbury’s Mog’s Christmas Calamity was an instant hit, thanks to its lovely story, and bringing back a much loved character from childhood books enjoyed by people who are now parents themselves.

3 Warburtons too, have used hugely popular characters, the Muppets. Created in 1955 and well liked ever since, they appeal to all generations. My kids giggled when they saw this one!

2 WestJet produced this amazing video in 2013, now watched 42.5 million times on Youtube, and what makes it special is the joy of giving to other people and the fantastic look on the faces of the people who get the present they have asked for (and who can help feeling sorry for the man who asked for new socks!)

1 This year’s John Lewis ad is lovely, but we think their best one was in 2011, gifts you can’t wait to give

As these adverts remind us, Christmas is such a special time, particularly if you’ve got little ones. Baby’s First Christmas is a huge milestone for parents and grandparents, even if the centre of attention won’t remember it! We love being a part of family Christmases and creating precious keepsakes that will really make people smile when they receive them.
