Over the week and a half til Christmas, we’ll bring you the best holiday drinks, must-have stocking stuffers and tips on where to get those last minute gifts that always pop up on your to do list. Today we have 6 Ugly Christmas Sweaters to Wear!
While I love the holidays for decorating, baking, and all the other traditions that come along with the Christmas season, my absolute favorite part is the ugly sweaters. The tradition of the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” seems to have been born out of those horrendous sweaters that moms wore in the 80s and 90s that had all the bobbles and decorations on them, like this one:
Since then, the “ugly” part of the ugly Christmas sweater has gotten a bit cooler, with more people sporting them around the holidays. Here’s our 6 favorite ugly Christmas sweaters for this holiday season!
6. The 3D Christmas Sweater
One of my favorites this season is the 3D Christmas Sweater. Found at the site aptly named Ugly Christmas Sweater, this one features detachable front and back of a reindeer for a, well, festive twist on the classic Christmas sweater pattern.
$67.95 from Ugly Christmas Sweater.
5. Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal
Okay, technically I’m cheating on this one because it is in sweatshirt form, but you can find this one in sweater form as well. A great homage to the perfect Christmas movie, Home Alone, this is a classic line that almost everyone recognizes on the spot; what better way to celebrate than put it on a sweatshirt?
$26-$34.99 on Amazon.
4. A Christmas Story Leg Lamp
Unless you’ve lived under a rock your whole life, you’ve at least heard of the classic holiday movie A Christmas Story. TBS runs a 24-hour marathon of it ever year, and what better outfit to sit through all 12 showings of the movie than this amazing sweater? Plus, it actually LIGHTS UP.
$65.99 on Amazon.
3. Meowy Christmas!
There’s possibly no better way to express your love for both the holidays and cats at the same time. For all you cat lovers out there, this one is purrrfect (See what I did there?). This one ALSO lights up so you can draw the most attention possible to yourself and the fact that you love cats more than people!
$54.99 on Festified.
2. Bah Humpug
Don’t worry, dog lovers, we’ve got something for you, too. Not feeling the holiday spirit this year? Why not say it in a festive yet absolutely adorable way with this sweater! Plus, no one can resist the cuteness of a dog in little socks!
$44.95 on Tipsy Elves.
1. 1-800-HOTLINE BLING
My absolute FAVORITE sweater to come out of 2015. There’s multiple versions of this (“I know when those sleigh bells ring” and Christmas Bling are the best variations), but this is the original Hotline Bling Sweater. Unfortunately, it’s sold out online at the original site, but you can find cheaper versions of it virtually anywhere from Etsy to Amazon to Ebay.
