As the U.K. retailers all unveil their holiday ads this month, the offerings from other companies in Europe are starting to make their appearances.

Swiss store Manor returns this year with another holiday ad from BETC Paris featuring the adorable animated elf we saw in last year's offering. For 2019, the elf and his friends help an exhausted couple with a newborn baby celebrate the season. Despite some initial confrontations with the stork that delivered their little bundle of joy, they set off for Manor and return with everything the newly-hatched family could possibly need (we hope they helped with the dish-washing too, though). Even the stork eventually comes around. 

The animation was directed by Kevin Grady of AgainstAllOdds, the Passion directing team behind the Spanish Lottery's award-winning "Justino" from 2015 and who also worked on holiday ad "Archie the Reindeer" for McDonald's U.K. this year.
