In true festive spirit, we look to days of yore and round up the best of Christmas print ads. From magical design to sparkling copy, these are as timeless as they are rib-tickling. 1.

Adidas – making a play for the season, so we can make sense of this effective ad.
If this is how Santa delivers all those presents (and in a single night, too), then you can certainly get off your sofa to make that Christmas dinner.
Another company choosing the iconic symbolism of the Christmas tree, VW have Christmas cracked.
We hope he walks round like that for the entire day.
