Dubbed the ‘alternative Christmas ad’, Love Is a Gift by Philip Beastall was hailed as the true meaning of Christmas.

Made by the filmmaker on a tight budget, it showed a man counting
down the days until Christmas.

On the morning of December 25, instead of unwrapping expensive presents he gets out a tape player and plays a cassette his mum made for him before she passed away.

It was the last recording she made for him, and the ad went viral around the world being watched by millions.
