This holiday email from Apple features polished product photography and a wide range of gifts for whoever you shop for. I like that even though the email contains a gift card offer, the main focus is still on the products and how you can use them.

Looks aren’t everything. Does this email follow key accessibility best practices? Our friends at Litmus ran the test.
Emails should have a "meta content-type" and defined character set.
Email headings should be well structured. This will help screen readers easily navigate content.
Specifying "alt text" for these images helps screen readers describe the image.
Text to voice recording and transcript for hearing impaired.
Table roles should be clearly defined. This helps screen readers determine how to interpret the table.
Without a [lang] attribute, screen readers will assume the email is in the default language the subscriber chose when setting up their screen reader. If your email is not in that user’s language, the screen reader may not accurately transcribe your message.
Larger paragraphs of text should be left-justified to improve readability for some readers.
