Has anyone seen the new John Lewis advert yet? I couldn’t wait to see what they came up with this year.
In recent years John Lewis have produced the most beautifully moving adverts that bring the happiest tear to the eye. I think what appeals to me most about them is that they are simple and lovely and remind you it’s the little things that make Christmas so magical. It’s not about the joy of receiving but rather giving. I find them heartwarming and nostalgic, and they always seem to feature songs I love sung by one wistful female or another. They all finish with a slogan which makes you long to hand over the gifts you’ve lovingly chosen for your loved ones on a snowy Christmas morning.
Whoever comes up with these adverts is a genius, I only have to think of the 2011 advert to start sobbing.
I thought I’d share the last few years of adverts and I bet you won’t be able to help shedding a little festive tear.
Sob, sob, sob, I love them, they are perfect! I can’t wait for christmas now. Just have to find those perfect gifts!
