The holidays will be here before you know it, so to save you from scrambling for last-minute gifts some of your favorite celebrities have you covered with their latest holiday ad campaigns. Just look to Jenny Slate, Mindy Kaling, and Anna Faris, who have teamed up with Old Navy, Tory Burch, and Kate Spade New York respectively, for some inspiration on getting ahead on all of your shopping.
Jenny Slate is the voice behind Old Navy’s “One Dolla Holla Cozy Socks” campaign, where the brand’s cozy socks are on display in a light-hearted puppet show. The 35-year-old comedian is bringing awareness to the brand’s charitable Black Friday deal, where for every pair of cozy socks sold, $1 will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs for up to $1 million.
Giving back during the holidays is very close to Slate’s heart. “I like to give to the organizations and communities that serve me and my world. This year, it’s Planned Parenthood, The ACLU, and my local NPR stations,” Slate said.
Mindy Kaling teamed up with Tory Burch to ease your gift-giving anxiety once and for all. In the ad campaign titled, “A Very Merry Mindy,” the 38-year-old actress stresses over getting all of her shopping done in time, until she receives a personalized gift from Tory Burch right on her doorstep.
Fortunately, Kaling opens the box to reveal a ton of Tory Burch items that she can re-gift, including a letterman crewneck, a metallic tote (which, she decides is a perfect gift for Beyoncé to hold all of her awards at the next Grammys), statement studs, shiny tennis shoes, glamorous sunnies, and even a gift that gives back.
Next up, Anna Faris stars alongside actress Rosie Perez in an episode of Kate Spade’s Miss Adventure film series where they play modern day Kate Spade New York heroines and save the day when their holiday agenda doesn’t go as planned. Faris and Perez don an array of Kate Spade items in the short film that make perfect gifts—including a mini pink cross-body bag adorned with pearls, a chic black bag with delicate gold chains, and a grey coat trimmed with faux fur.
The collection is meant to coincide with the theme “love in all forms.” Said Kirke, “Love is all kind of things. There are a variety of forms. I just tried to paint about a few of them.”
Victoria’s Secret model Georgia Fowler is the lead singer of an a cappella group in Vince Camuto’s holiday campaign inspired by Pitch Perfect 3. Fowler is joined by a girl group of dynamic singers on stage as they rock along to a holiday-rendition of Haim’s “Want You Back.” The girls, of course, are all wearing celebration-ready designs by the brand, including a metallic slip dress, sparkly mini-dresses, silver strappy heels, and embellished sandals.
Singer Kacy Hill stars in MCM’s festive yet edgy campaign video. The ad features a cool holiday party filled with up-and-coming talent, dance-offs, and of course, lots of MCM goods.
In addition to checking off all of your holiday shopping, shooting your family Christmas card is probably another to-do on your list. Luckily, celebrity photographer Patrick Demarchelier (yes, the “I have Patrick!” from The Devil Wears Prada) and Marriott Rewards will check it off for you with the opportunity to shoot a high-fashion-esque holiday card with the legendary photographer himself.
The bidding for this once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot is open to Marriott Rewards (and SPG members who have linked their accounts) and starts at 75,000 points. If you win, you will be treated to on-site stylists and make-up artists, round-trip air fare to New York City, and a luxury two-night hotel stay. But most importantly, get ready to ditch your tacky matching sweaters, fake snow, and reindeer ears for a holiday card that will blow your friends and family away.
