Do you absolutely love a Christmas advert? We will be updating this our Christmas advert feature with all of the sweet, funniest and most random promos of 2022 - so stay tuned and tell us your favourite one!

John Lewis

John Lewis' Christmas adverts are famously good and making you sob your heart out, and 2022's offering is no different. The story follows a man diligently learning how to skateboard, resulting in plenty of near falls before he slowly begins to improve, even going to the skating park to try it out at night. In the final moments of the trailer, it is revealed that he has been practising because his new foster child is a keen skateboarder - and the pair immediately bond over their shared interest. And we're crying again.

Morrisons

Morrisons' sweet ad follows Farmer Christmas as he travels on his special tractor to his workshop to meet Morrisons 'elves’! We see how the bakers create mince pies in magical ovens, while catching glimpses of other delicious dishes from the Christmas range. Traditionally glazed gammon joint anyone?

Boots

Lydia West stars in Boots sparkly advert about a woman who finds a pair of magical glasses which allow her to see how fabulous everyone's lives can be - with all of her friends and family's glamorous desires being revealed just in time for Christmas. 

Sainsbury’s

National treasure Alison Hammond star as The Countess in one of our favourite ads! In this fantasy world, the Countess isn’t a fan of Christmas puddings, and so a cook must find desserts that she will love - or at least put a spin on the classic to make it tasty. Taste the difference, medieval style!
