Best Christmas jumpers 2019: Novelty knits for men, women and children


To truly get into the spirit of the festive season, you need to dress the part. Of course around Christmas time this means getting your best and funniest Christmas jumpers out from the back of the wardrobe.

This year, why not go for something new? Christmas jumpers don’t have to be ‘ugly’ (but they can definitely be funny) and if you play your cards right you might just find something you’re happy to wear all the year round. 

Here is list of what we think are the best Christmas jumpers for under £20. At that price, they’re all a total steal. We may just have to get more than one – after all, the Christmas period lasts longer than just a single day.

When is Christmas Jumper Day 2019?

This year, Christmas Jumper Day falls on Friday 13 December. 

If you haven’t already guessed it’s a day when you’re allowed to wear a festive jumper (the uglier the better) to work, school, college or anywhere really, in exchange for a donation to Save the Children.

The charity says its aim is to make “the world better with a sweater”.

Celebrities including Isla Fisher, Jon Snow, Mark and Jess Wright, Myleene Klass, Fearne Cotton, Collabro and Natasha Kaplinsky, plus Samantha Cameron have previously taken part in the campaign in the past.

Money raised goes to the charity’s on-going projects to alleviate child poverty in Britain and across the globe.
