When it comes to Christmas ads. we can be pretty masochistic. If it doesn't make us bawl our lamps out, forget it. 

The last couple of years, we have sat down to the John Lewis ad with a box of tissues at the ready, and been sorely disappointed when we weren't left questioning the meaning of life. 

Well, this new Homestore and More ad has filled the void John Lewis left this year. 

'The Date' is a short brand film, created by Banjoman Films for Homestore + More as part of the ‘Homestories’ series. 

It tells the story of an elderly widow who is urged to seek companionship by her loving grandson.

Just watch.
