The M&S Christmas TV Advert 2013

We love the fairytale Marks and Spencer advert this year. It’s a dark a mysterious tale that takes inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and follows Rosie Huntington-Whiteley down a pothole!

On her adventure she meets Davis Gandy as the Mad Hatter and concludes with an encounter with Helena Bonham Carter!

Although a bizarre and quite edgy take for Marks and Spencer, it’s a great way to showcase their products

If you’re shopping online at Marks and Spencer this Christmas, they will donate up to  1.00% of your spend to your chosen charity- at no extra cost with Give as you Live.

John Lewis has opted for a more traditional take on Christmas this year, with their cartoon of ‘The Bear and the Hare’

We follow best friends Bear and Hare, accompanied by the lovely voice of Lily Allen covering Keane’s  ‘Somewhere Only We Know’.

The heart-warming story see’s Hare give Bear an alarm clock so he can wake up and discover Christmas with all the other animals.

Sainsbury’s Christmas advert this year features an ensemble of home-made videos of different families capturing the essence of Christmas.

From tree building, to carol singing to Christmas wishes, it’s such a heart warming video and will resonate will a lot of people and maybe even bring a tear to some people’s eyes.

It reminds us of the true values of Christmas, being surrounded by family and friends and enjoying your time together!
