The one thing I hate to see go after the holidays is the Christmas ads and commercials. From the comical to the melancholy, it’s fun to see everyday products holidayized (my new word). I especially love looking at ads from 1950s and 60s – check out some of these posted on MomGrind.com.
Back in the 50s it was common to give bed pillows, bathroom scales and cartons of cigarettes as gifts.
(Framed vintage ads are a great way to bring a touch of mid-century mod to your home. Look for old magazines, cut out the pix and frame them.)
For more modern and attractive advertising, GraphicDesignBlog.org has gathered some of their favorite holiday ads – most of which are very clever like this red-nose reindeer.
This Christmas ad is downright disturbing – what’s with the neck? I found it and more weird and funny ads on another blog post from MomGrind.com.
