Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go

Top 5 Christmas ads 2016

Can you believe that it is only a few days left until Christmas day and less than 2 weeks until New Year’s Day, the holidays full of joy, gifts, meetings with family and friends that we are looking forward to! How fast time flies!

While making the final preparations for the holidays – last minute shopping, wrapping gifts and so on, I suggest you take a look at these ads that will help you feel more Christmassy:

1. Mercedes-Benz #Sprinter wish us a Merry Christmas in its ‘Amazing Xmas lights’ ad commercial that aimed to bring the holiday season feeling into our home. You can see how one of the family homes was turned into a huge Christmas light show! This idea is worth taking into account! 😉

This amazing ad was done by the ad agency Fischer Appelt Germany and released by the light artist Richard Holdman.



2. Have you ever met Mrs Claus, Santas’ wife? She is a star of the Marks and Spencer’s ‘Christmas with Love’ ad campaign done by the RKCR/ Y&R London in which Mrs Claus receives a letter from a young boy called Jake. He asks her to help him do something special to his sister! We see her flying from Lapland to London in her helicopter to deliver a gift!


3. Meet #BusterTheBoxer in the new 2-minute John Lewis Christmas TV commercial created by London agency adam&eveDDB which shows us ‘gifts that everyone will love.’ The ad tells a story of a boxer named Buster who isn’t the only one with a passion for bouncing. This ad is sure to put a smile on your face! 🙂


4. Duracell comes back to the Star Wars universe with a new heart-warming ad titled ‘How the Rebels Saved Christmas,’ tied to the release of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ featuring a group of young brave rebels who do their best to deliver one powerful Christmas gift to their friend’s galaxy.

The ad was done by Anomaly to drive donations to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.


5. Don’t worry about Christmas gifts delivery, Santa, you deserves a break – #SantasBigBreak! will take good care of it! Enjoy this amazing commercial done by M&C Saatchi Abel, Cape Town, South Africa.


May you find more smiles on your face this Christmas and may each new day bring you moments to cherish! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!⛄️🎄🎁🎉

  1. I had a great time watching these ads! I love seeing ads this season, the companies really up their game when it comes to Christmas ads!

  2. Ok so I really didn’t want to like the 2 minute advert by John lewis. I actually tried to avoid watching it. But it has a dog in it. Of course I’m hooked! Makes me feel all warm inside. Ree Love30

  3. I always enjoy the Christmas ads. They always look so nice. I hadn’t seen a lot of them this year. So I’m happy to have watched them now here. Loved to see Santa’s wife in the Marks and Spencer’s commercial. It’s great. Just the idea he has a home and a wife and just goes to work haha. Awesome. Also love the brother and sister in it. So cute. And I’m a huge Star Wars fan. And my favorite character is R2D2. So…. Of course, I loved the Duracell commercial as well :).

  4. Lo spot con la befana è il mio preferito tra questi.
    In Italia (ma credo che non sia solo italiano) lo spot della Apple è bellissimo: un Frankenstein, nella sua solitudine, studia su un libro che cosa è il natale. Quindi si reca all’albero di natale del villaggio più vicino al suo eremo e si mette due luci colorate sugli elettrodi che ha al collo e inizia a cantare da solo di fronte ad un pubblico (che sembra) spaventato. Ma nel silenzio una bimba inizia a cantare con lui e lui la guarda come a dire “grazie, apprezzo molto”.
    ma prima che possano cantare la seconda strofa iniziano a cantare tutti e il mostro capisce che è accettato.
    Lo slogan dice “open your heart”. Mi viene sempre da piangere quando lo vedo e lo trovo bellissimo .

  5. I’ve been used Duracell for more than years! I love using it and it’s long lasting! I’m really glad that I’ve done shopping with Duracell, now I have a stocked to my kids toys.

  6. These are absolutely great! Xmas ads are always the best ones. A lot of time and momey are spent on them but I think it’s worth it. People will remember the brand.

  7. M&S Christmas Ad touches my heart. I miss my dad pretending to be Santa Claus when we were a kid! Nice post thanks for sharing

  8. Awww, what a great choice you have made. My absolutely first choice is Buster the Boxer, but I am a mad dog lady anyway. How nice that you have finally introduced Mrs.Claus to us, thank you for that lovely entertaining post.

  9. Thank you for this, Euge! It made my heart warm and placed a smile on my face. My favorites are the John Lewis and M&S ad. Beautiful portrayal of Mrs. Claus–not to mention, girl power! The John Lewis one made me laugh this morning seeing all those animals on the trampoline and having the dog run first to it on Christmas day.

    May your Holidays be filled with Joy and Peace and wishing you an amazing end to 2016!


  10. That’s a great list. I have not seen any ads in the recent times but I have always been a fan of such festive commercials. They are o much fun to watch.

  11. All commercials are nice, but I love little more Marks & Spencer ad, mrs. Claus in action, so beautoful ad and show us how little Jake love his sister and only wants present for her, so emotional!
