After almost two years of social distancing, society starts to open up again. After too much time apart, we can finally start dreaming about celebrating Christmas with our friends and family, just like we used to. We get to sit down, relax, talk, and find our way back to each other.

In this year’s Christmas campaign, IKEA shows that the holiday is not only about the presents. Instead, it’s about the act of giving and the thoughts behind the gifts that matter.
