The 10 best Christmas jumpers

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Subtle they're not, but these bright and bold festive pullovers will get you and your family (and maybe even the dog) in the Christmas spirit

1. Light up Christmas tree

Go all-out with this brilliant light-up tree jumper. Decorated with diamante baubles and LED lights that flash, it's a good one to wear on a night out – no one will lose you on a dark December night. Snap up quickly if you can bear it, these are selling fast.

£49.99, truffleshuffle.co.uk

2. John Lewis Save the Children men's jumper

Blokes can sport this reindeer and Fair Isle print jumper knowing they're helping a good cause – £25 from the sale goes to Save the Children, which has set up the annual Christmas Jumper Day next Friday. Another bonus: it's also 100 per cent cotton, so no itchy fabrics or sweaty synthetics here.

£49.00, johnlewis.com

3. Primark Christmas pudding

A playful budget option for women from the king of value fashion, this Primark sweatshirt speaks for itself really. Wear it if you dare, though perhaps not one for the office.

£12, primark.com

4. Reindeer knit by Joe Browns

Forget Rudolph and his red nose, this women's jumper features a reindeer with a 3D pink schnoz and matching stripy knitted scarf. The blue colour makes a change from red and green.

£35, lookagain.co.uk

5. Jack Wills Abingdon Crew snowflake

A slightly subtler take on the festive jumper, this soft lambswool mix number for women is a cut above some of the other festive knitwear, the price reflects it, but it's one you can wear for the rest of winter.

£78.50, jackwills.com

6. Label J Santa

Slightly less garish than some of the offerings, this navy men's jumper has an understated but fun cartoony Santa print. One for anyone who wants to join in the fun but finds novelty jumpers a bit embarrassing.

£25, jacamo.co.uk

7. Crackling fire

Christmas jumpers have gone digital. Sort of. This roaring fire design involves downloading a free app to get a flickering flame video on your smartphone. Then you pop your mobile into the concealed pouch with a screen-sized hole. Ingenious!

8. Elf Jumper

Become Santa's little helper this Christmas in an elf jumper, which can double up as a fancy dress costume if needs be. The wool mix means it's soft and comfy and it comes in various sizes, so the whole family can get involved.

£19.99, christmasjumper.co.uk

9. Eleven Paris 'Merry Christmas you filthy animal'

There are those films you have to watch at Christmas and Home Alone's one of them. This women's sweatshirt by the French-based designers pays homage to the 1990 hit starring Macaulay Culkin, along with delivering a tongue-in-cheek message. One for the cool kids who don't want it to be obvious they're buying into the Christmas jumper trend.

£54, selfridges.com

10. Dog's reindeer Pom Pom

If the whole family's kitted out, why not get the dog involved too? This fun Rudolph jumper for pooches features bright 3D pom poms and a natty stripe design. Comes in a range of sizes to fit Jack Russells to Labs.

£10, petsathome.com
