I hope you’re all sat with a warm drink and ready for a chatty post because I went Christmas shopping in a lovely little town and now I’m all warm inside with my big scarf mwahah.
Happy Saturday and 9th Day of BLOGMAS festive bears! I’m so so excited to be collaborating with Love, Soph on this post, because you get TWICE as much festive fun-ness, because who doesn’t want that? 😉 So go over to Soph’s amazing lifestyle blog and bombard her with bear hugs..
Riight- Christmas Ads. Some hate them, some love all of them and learn the songs off by heart- me?- Well, I have very mixed opinions this year I think! So we thought we’d share our opinions on these adverts this year..!
*cheers of non-enthusiastic joy*

We can’t do this post without mentioning the king of Christmas ads, John Lewis, can we?
I’ve seen this advert quite a few times and honestly I think it has that EXACT amazing festive feel of a John Lewis advert *AGH I FEEL EMOTIONAL ALREADY AND IT’S 10 SECONDS IN* , I’m a bit of a John Lewis Christmas ad superfan, ok?? And although this year it seems very concentrated on small kids, it definitely appeals to all and I’m totally obsessed with the song- agh it’s stuck in my head already, wow! I literally cannot fault the cinematography, it’s great as usual, but it’s a little ridiculous HOW much it cost pheww- (I love love love it though) And Moz is pretty darn cute too, right?
And I have to say that the Bear and the Hare will always be the one that makes me cry!!

I have to say…(not that I’m comparing, buut) Kevin the Carrot is close behind the John Lewis advert- I am now totally in love with this advert because of it’s homeliness and the carrot is just adorable as he goes on his adventure! I alos love the afct these ads so far are not so concentrated on the actual products, yet they do mention them subtly. Agh this one gets me in the festive mood a LOT!

When I first started watching this advert I really got into it thinking it might be in a similar style to a John Lewis one (man I need to stop comparing to them ahah) but I find it sort of cheesy and surrounding Asda’s products (which obviously it should but I don’t know, it focuses on it too much) meh I’m just not feeling this one, but feel free to disagree because I know a lot of effort and time has gone into it!

Oh I LOVE THIS ONE! Oaddington is my absokute favourite, and crossed with classic bear (I promise I’m not biased) humour, this one is so fun and warming at the same time! It has the perfect balance and the effort gone in is so much more obvious than some of the others, making it stand out, and aww I just love the animation and videography that really makes me feel so festive. ❤
Good job M&S 😉
That’s it for my opinions! But I would honestly love to hear all of your thoughts on these adverts this year, do you have a favourite? I think it’s clear which ones I liked… And don’t forget to go over to Soph’s blog and read all about her opinions and musings hehe. Can anyone else believe how close it’s getting to the 25th alreadyy? Woah.
