Holiday Commercials Bring Us Home

There’s no place like home for the holidays, which is probably why holiday commercials tug at our heartstrings. Whether they are funny or sentimental the images of families gathered together to celebrate how much we care about each other speak to us and remind us of what’s really important. Here’s a list of our favorite commercials — old and new. What are yours?

Folgers Peter Comes Home

In 1985, Peter came home for Christmas, waking his family up with the scent of fresh-brewed coffee. The heartwarming commercial is a reminder that there really is no better place to be than with family for the holidays.

H-E-B Happy Holidays

Our favorite grocery store chain highlights how Texans have been helping Texans this year and how a little creativity can make the holidays happier for everyone.

Hershey’s Christmas Bells

Is it really the holidays if Hersey’s Kisses don’t ring them in? The commercial first appeared in 1989 and has been jingling ever since.

M&Ms Meet Santa

This candy-coated favorite first appeared in 1996 introducing Red and Yellow to the real Santa – a mind-blowing experience for all of them.

USPS Whatever It Takes

Hardworking postal workers are featured singing about their holiday gift delivering travails. They are funny, heartwarming and a reminder to leave your mail carrier a little holiday cheer — especially this year with so much online shopping.

Microsoft Find Your Joy

This year, Microsoft explored Christmas dreams of the four-legged kind. A dog, frustrated by the fact that his humans have more time for their computers than him, dreams that he too can participate in video games and Zoom calls.

America’s Cart Anthem

Walmart pulls no punches with this ad acknowledging that the things we want this year may have changed, but the things we need haven’t.

Amazon The Show Must Go On

Ballet and the holidays go hand-in-hand but what happens when the show is canceled due to COVID? Amazon has an answer that may bring a tear to your eye.

Xfinity The Greatest Gift

Santa, played by Steve Carell, realizes that the usual gifts are just not going to cut it after the year we’ve all had and tasks his elves with coming up with something new.

Disney Vintage Doll

More a short film than a holiday commercial, this promo for the popular Wishes Come True Blue color collection gives us all the feels as a young girl receives a Mickey Mouse doll from her father that she then passes on to her granddaughter.
