Michael Hill Jeweller has today launched its new Christmas brand campaign in collaboration with CHE Proximity.

The film shows an all too familiar chaotic evening routine for mum, kids, and the family dog, which culminates in a bedtime story. Mum resonates with the lead character who, ‘at the end of a year of endless debacle’, realises that she had ‘lost her sparkle.’ This doesn’t go unnoticed by her kids, and on Christmas Day, mum spots a thoughtful little treasure trove labelled ‘to mummy’, with a purple Michael Hill box. She opens the box, and the gift inside provides her sparkle once again.

The emotive Christmas spot is directed by Bonnie Moir from Exit Films, filmed remotely under COVID restrictions, with a genuine family cast for the film, so they didn’t need to be distanced.

Vanessa Brennan, chief brand and strategy officer of Michael Hill said: “Christmas is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation, admiration, and love to friends and family. And a thoughtful gift can go a really long way, especially given the year that has been.”

The book featured in the campaign was based on ‘Ellie-Mae’s Sparkle’, illustrated by Sir Michael Hill and written by Emma Mactaggart, a well renowned Australian children’s author. It will be sold in stores and online over the Christmas period, with a percentage of proceeds going to Save The Children.

Helen James, executive creative director at CHE Proximity added: “This Christmas we wanted to create a campaign that brought Sir Michael’s story to life in a very human way. And there’s never been truer words spoken than we’ve all lost a little sparkle this year. Our omnichannel approach enables customers to find the perfect gift wherever they are. Whether that’s for a loved one, or simply for themselves.”
