<br>2)  The Santa  Brand  Book
"Santa is a Concept, not an  idea. It's an Emotion, not a feeling. It's  both Yesterday and Today. It's Tomorrow as well." That's how  this ingenious brand book from communications consulting firm Quietroom begins. And believe me when I say  the rest of it is  just as kooky  and wonderfully facetious.
Case  in point: Take a look below  at this "brand house" that details the core  components of Old Saint Nick's brand strategy.  I ... I can't even.
<br>3) Apple  Holiday Commercial</b>
Oh, Apple — how  you've done it again.  Say what you will about  the tech giant, but hot damn, do they  know how to churn out one  wonderful ad after another.
The streak stays alive  with  this touching spot that, once  again, shows the company's  a step ahead of the competition when it  comes to  showing  the  usefulness of its products and adding  in  that human  element that draws people in.
(The use  of  Cat  Power's rendition of "Have  Yourself a Merry  Little Christmas" certainly bolsters that personal  touch Apple is so well-known for adding to its commercials.)
<br>4) Coke Zero Sweater  Generator</b>
Interactive sites  are becoming more popular each and every day,  and thus,  it's no surprise that some well-known  brands  are jumping on board with the marketing concept. Take  Coca-Cola for instance.
With  this Sweater Generator, it's clear the  soda-maker certainly gets that holiday marketing doesn't need  to focus on  its product and should be warm, inviting, and personable.
<br>5) Netflix "Fireplace for Your Home" Trailer
Think of  where  Netflix was  just a couple years  ago, when  it announced its ill-fated plans for a second service called Qwikster (which led  to substantial backlash and some  poor PR). Today, though, it's  a whole different  story.
In addition  to awesome original programming (if you're not  watching House of Cards, you should  be), it's nailing every aspect of its marketing. Want proof?  Look no further  than the fake trailer  below.<br>
<br>6)  Topshop Pinterest Contest
Conducting a social  media contest is  a premier  way to draw visitors to  your accounts on Facebook and Pinterest.  One company that  seems to have hit the mark with its  own  contest  is  the clothing  retailer Topshop.
With a  contest like the  one the company  created  around its #DearTopshop hashtag, in which users can win various prizes by pinning Topshop items to  their  boards, brands  can secure not only  hefty amounts of traffic to their  social sites,  but also  garner loyal followers and  even  customers.<br>
<br>7)  John Lewis Christmas Advertisement
Another sentimental  promo in the vein of Apple's  aforementioned ad comes  from John Lewis  and harkens back  to the days  of the old-school, animated Christmas specials (A Charlie Brown Christmas, The  Velveteen Rabbit, etc.).
The retailer certainly  worked some magic with  this spot, which  has  generated some considerable (and  warranted) buzz. And once again, here's another promo using music to  perfection —  this  time, it's Lily Allen  with a lighter version of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know." Well done,  John Lewis marketers.  Well done.<br>
<br>8) Uncommon Goods
Though  not  as  "sexy" as  minute-long  commercials, interactive sites, or social contests, good-ol' email  marketing  is still a more-than-viable option for marketers around the holidays. Uncommon Goods understood this, as evidenced by this appealing email below (which actually displays as an  animated GIF  in your inbox).
It's not only  clear and concise in its promotional copy, but the brand also effectively relays the benefits of shopping with the company with its "urgency" angle: 'We offer quick shipping,  just in  time for the 25th.' Plus,  the animated GIF shows you when  you can  place your order to receive your gifts in time for Christmas.
