Every year we see a new batch of retailers’ Christmas adverts, vying for our attention and the accolade of the best of the year. Or is it more about attracting sales?
Whatever it is, some capture the love and warmth of the season – ahhhhh… some just irritate the eyeballs out of you long before the big day actually arrives. Here are some of our favourites from years gone by.
Do you have a favourite?
For those of us who love the 80s classic, Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s ‘The Power of Love’, from John Lewis. (2012)
The bear and the hare, another John Lewis fave with the Keane classic ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ sung by Lily Allen. (2013)
The 100th anniversary of the story of footie at Christmas during World War 1 from Sainsbury’s in partnership with The Royal British Legion. (2014)
Wouldn’t be complete without the Marks & Spencer classics and it was nice to see a bit of Take That, would be happy if they turned up to our party. Walking in a winter wonderland….was it really eight years ago?
Marks & Spencer always bring a bit of magic and sparkle – bring on the fairies. Fly me to the moon. (2014)
Couple of Boots’ classics which always remind us of their 3 for 2 Christmas offers #SpecialBecause. (2014)
A super stylish and sexy one from Boots – most of us don’t look like that when we’re stuffing a turkey – then again Boots give the gift of beauty. (2008)
Remember Woolworths? Last but by no means least, the wonderful Quality Street – magic moment. Comes up every year since its release in 1992!
