It’s that time of the year again! Valentine’s Day ads everywhere you look, love in the air, and a time for romance. For some, now is the time to put on the thinking hat and figure out what to get your partner… roses? again? seriously? For others, it’s finding that new series to binge on Netflix by yourself. A tub of Ben and Jerry’s is sure to be on the shopping list… we call that self-care.
As a Digital Marketing Agency in London, it has been the time of year when we keep an eye out for the best Valentine’s Day ads to see what all the big brands are doing in our marketing world.
There are billions of brands creating Valentine’s Day ads every year and this creates the annual challenge of trying to stand out. Valentine’s Day ads need to be bold, creative, and fun to stand out from the rest of the crowd. This is the only way they can be memorable and win people’s hearts.
We have put together a list of our favourite Valentine’s Day ads that you really need to see!
We absolutely love this one from Snickers. At first glance, it looks like any ordinary billboard but if you look closer, the billboard is covered in cards that you can peel off to give to your loved ones. This creative idea fits perfectly with the line “you’re forgetful when you’re hungry” and would have definitely saved a lot of people on Valentine’s Day. Snickers have your back!
It is hard not to love IKEA’s more provocative approach to Valentine’s Day ads using two of their chairs in a rather risque arrangement. It suggests something more but yet is not too outrageous- it is, however, very bold and memorable! Great one from IKEA!
Hovis is also using their product in a creative way in this print! Check out this Valentine’s Day ad of a heart made with two slices of bread… a little does a lot!
All it can take is one short line to make one big bold statement and this is exactly what Durex has done. Straight to the point with one strong caption to get their message across.
These Valentine’s Day ads go to show experimenting with fun, creative ideas should never be something to shy away from. The only way to get the recognition you desire and deserve is to be bold, think outside the box, and make your ads fun and engaging. If you want to stand out from the crowd? We can help you with that.
