M&S Food Christmas TV advert

This is not just a Christmas ad... this is an M&S Food Christmas ad. Our fabulous fairy – the wonderful Dawn French – is back. This year, she’s found two new friends: Hollywood actors and Wrexham football club co-chairmen, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. A pair of adorable mittens have been lost in the snow. Fairy can’t bear the thought of anyone spending Christmas alone, so she brings them in from the cold and shows them what a real Christmas should be, with all the magic and sparkle of M&S. Keep an eye out for all six appearances of Fairy and the mittens throughout November and December.

M&S Christmas Gifts

Right and Left want to thank Fairy for cheering them up, but don’t get it quite right… Luckily, Fairy’s more than happy to help show the mittens what a great gift looks like from M&S Food.

M&S Party Food

Whether it’s a festive party for three – like Fairy and the Mittens – or you’re catering for a crowd, no celebration is complete without a platter of marvellous M&S party food. See Fairy’s favourites in our latest ad.

M&S Food partners with Wrexham AFC

It’s official, we’re teaming up with Wrexham AFC – our first ever local football club partnership. We opened our first store in the city back in 1936, and are very proud and excited to say our new Foodhall – which opens on 1 December – will employ more than 120 people from the local area.

Ryan Reynolds, Wrexham AFC co-chairman says, "Our partnership with M&S Food is important to Rob and I, due to their established history with Wrexham and their commitment to supporting the local community. The connection we have to the club and its supporters is something we’re deeply proud of. It’s essential we partner with a brand who understands the broader goals for the community as a whole and is committed to making positive changes.”

Triple chocolate panettone

Panettone is a classic Italian Christmas treat. Ours is made by the Di Gennaro family in Fossano, Italy. Deliciously light and pillowy-soft Italian bread is combined with chocolate sauce, before being coated in dark chocolate and scattered with white, milk and dark chocolate chips. It makes a lovely brunch served with a cup of your favourite coffee.

Frozen trifle caked Alaska

Get ahead this Christmas with our frozen trifle caked Alaska. It's the first trifle you can slice and is so easy to prepare: simply defrost and serve. Custard semi-freddo is layered with raspberry sauce, whole raspberries and a sugar-soaked sponge, which is then topped with mallow and flaked almonds. It's a decadently festive dessert even the trifle sceptics will love.

We have so many lovely food and drink gift ideas for all budgets this Christmas. If you're stuck on what to buy your Secret Santa, our snowy projector biscuit tin is the perfect present.

Fun and games

The only way to make a festive games night even more fun is to add chocolate. With our Four in a Row game, your aim is to be the first person to score four Swiss chocolate discs in a row. 

Each delicious disc is made with ground hazelnuts and produced by our chocolate partner in Switzerland. It's the game that keeps on giving too, as it's reusable and refillable with our tubes of Swiss foiled discs in milk or dark chocolate.

Have the sweetest Christmas ever
