Gift suggestions from DJs and Sussan

David Jones and Sussan run newspaper ads appealing to Christmas shoppers.

Both ads graphically feature gift suggestions – the DJs ad consisting of price points to further encourage call to action, while Sussan makes an emotive connection, using photography and “love” in the headline to emphasise the human connection.

David Jones ran their press ad in the early general news section of a Sydney metropolitan newspaper on Sunday, while Sussan used prime positioning in a newspaper inserted magazine over the weekend.
