The best thing about Christmas other than food (and maybe presents) is jumpers. Fact.
I find myself scouring local charity shops, vintage shops and the internet for the perfect festive sweater and it is no easy task.
I find myself in love with the following:
I adore this humorous and retro styled 'Ugly Christmas Sweater - Merry Christmas You Filthy Animal' available by numerous sellers on Etsy. It is handmade, festive and a bargain for only £11.89. Do be aware that this item is shipped from the US so delivery can be a bit expensive (unless you order it with another item! It is Christmas, treat yourself).
Another vintage inspired piece with the 'Vintage Look Christmas Jumper' from ASOS. This oversize jumper is nice and snug, being made from soft knit fabric with ribbed cuffs and hem.
Want something a little more adorable and less traditional? The 'Christmas Jumper with Pug Print' by Brat and Suzie is for you. It features an round neckline, raglan sleeves and a very merry and rather adorable festive pug.
Lastly, we have something a little different, the cropped 'Christmas Pattern Jumper'. This vibrant (rather hideous in my opinion) and colourful jumper is perfect for those who don't like being drowned by fabric in the colder months. It features both a 'Ho Ho Ho' print and reindeer and sleighs and will keep your upper half nice and cosy.
If you want to find something a bit more original then take a peek in your local charity shops and vintage stores. Most have entire sections dedicated to the festive season! eBay also has an impressive variety. It really is a mission to find the perfect (ugly/non-ugly) Christmas jumper for you, but it sure is worth it!
Are you investing in an ugly jumper this Christmas? Are you excited for the festive season?
