Christmas Adverts Round-Up 2023

We've taken a look at some of the adverts that have hit our screens around the world this festive period.

Coles - Australia's leading supermarket chain has gone for a fun take on their Christmas Advert this season celebrating the quality of their produce, including a nod to importing Christmas puddings from the world's best pudding makers, the UK.

Morrisons - talking oven gloves are the star of the show in this festive advert for 2023 in a very simple festive family take.

Moving away from the supermarket chains quickly, drinks giant Diageo collaborated with Ronan Keating to launch its new Rockshore festive beer. A clever spin on a Christmas classic.

Another left field entry comes from local Northern Irish pub Enniskillen which went viral with its advert about an elderly man's day alone before stepping into the pub for a pint of Guinness and connecting with others. One that pulls on the heart strings for sure.

Sainsbury's opened up a big question around what kids want to know about Santa each year ... what does Kris Kringle have for his Christmas dinner!

Another of the British supermarket chains, Tesco changed the narrative making it all about adults enjoying the Christmas spirit and spreading the cheer to the teens maybe now being as festive with their #BecomeMoreChristmas campaign.

Over in the US, Walmart focused on asking what your 'Christmas thing' is - from the retailer that sells everything.

Aldi tapped into the hype around the upcoming new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film hitting the big screen this holiday season with their own take that brings their Christmas character, Kevin the Carrot, into play - Kevin and the Christmas Factory.

M&S also followed the theme of a brand character this season with the M&S Fairy, voiced by Dawn French, joined by new characters played by the much spotlighted Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds - owners of Wrexham Football Club.

Lidl get creative with a story about a raccoon that wants to join in the family fun this Christmas, whilst also highlighting their own charitable narrative prompting donations to their Toybank which gifts presents to children who need them most.

American grocery chain Kroger opted for a cartoon that taps into how food connects us all in a heartwarming short story of a family missing their international exchange student. Magic happens when we bring new traditions to the table.

Woolworths South Africa took the well known song This Is How We Do It (Montell Jordan) and celebrated their festive foods and brand principles in a vibrant, party atmosphere Christmas advert this year.

It wouldn't be a Christmas advert round up without the much anticipated John Lewis advert in the mix, so here it is once again - even if it isn't explicitly in the food and beverage sector.
