Best of…Christmas Ads

Christmas adverts

Christmas adverts are a big deal. Each year they get bigger and bigger and more and more expensive for retailers to produce, with each wanting to beat their previous year’s contribution. In 2009, John Lewis spent an estimated £5m on producing their Christmas ad, fast forward to 2017’s Moz the Monster ad and the production cost rocketed to £7m.

With retailers splashing the cash each year to grab our attention (and ultimately our cash!) on heart warming ads, I’ve rounded up the best Christmas adverts past and present.

Mog’s Christmas Calamity – Sainsbury’s – 2015
I love pets and I love Christmas, so when they put together for this ad, I fell in love with immediately. It did annoy me when they kept showing the edited version on TV though!

Coming Home for Christmas – Heathrow Airport – 2016
I only ever saw this ad on the internet, but as soon as I saw it, I loved it. If you missed it, I highly recommend you take a minute to enjoy it this Christmas.

Go on, it’s Christmas featuring Ant & Dec – Morrisons – 2013
This one is pure fun and the music is very catchy. I only feel like this was a couple of years ago, so I was surprised to find out it’s 4 years old already!

Christmas 1914 – Sainsbury’s – 2014
This one is completely different to any other Christmas ad and sends out such a positive message over the festive period.


The Holidays are Coming – Coco Cola – 2010

I couldn’t leave this one out! The Coca Cola ads are a pure Christmas tradition with great feature music to go with them.

Buster the Boxer – John Lewis – 2016
A dog bouncing on a trampoline – what more can I say? Having a dog myself who had just as much fun on a trampoline in the Summer, I had to include this one in my list.


Paddington & the Christmas Visitor – M&S – 2017

It was such a lovely surprise this year to see such a well loved character in Marks and Spencer’s Christmas ad. Paddington is just so lovable and with the follow up movie having just been released, it’s perfect timing.

I’d love to hear what your favourite Christmas ads are – please let me know in the comments section below.

  8. I love the Coca Cola ads each year. We cut cable but I still watch them on the internet because I love them so much! I hadn't seen many of these commercials since I'm in the US, it's so cool to see the advertising from another country. #DreamTeam ~heather keet
