These are Team ELLE's favourite festive ads.

What are yours?

Apple
A young girl recreates her grandmother's favourite song. Meaningful music touching various generations? Warning: watch with tissues.

McVitie's
Never work with children or animals. Unless you want to create a Christmas ad that goes viral.

John Lewis
This year we follow the adventures of an adorable little boy and his loyal companian: Monty the lovesick penguin. In true JL style, it's a story that really pulls on the heartstrings.

The cinematography for this tear-jerking WWI homage is truly breathtaking. Is it really an ad for a supermarket chain? Really?

Mulberry
When you give great presents, you’re simply reminding everyone else what great taste you have. It’s why Mulberry's #WinChristmas ad is so very clever.

Marks & Spencer
The all-star cast is gone, replaced by two goody-goody fairies who go by the name of Magic and Sparkle. Dressed in M&S partywear (naturally), they fly over the rooftops to bring good cheer to all.

Coca Cola
Remember a time before the big Christmas TV advert? Back then, it was Coca Cola’s 'Holidays are Coming' ad that got all the love. Here’s this year’s, complete with schmaltzy backing track 'Make Someone Happy'.
