Yes i know it’s only November, but it’s really not too early to be thinking about Christmas. Some of my friends have even finished their Christmas shopping. I’ve been spotting so many great geeky Christmas jumpers advertised already this year it reminded me of the importance of Christmas Jumper Day.
Christmas Jumper Day
This year Christmas Jumper Day falls on Friday December the 15th. Christmas jumper day encourages everyone to ‘make the world better with a sweater’. Several workplaces and schools across the country participate in this yearly tradition. My children’s nursery and school will be allowing the kids to wear their Christmas jumper to school whilst making a donation to Save the Children. With that in mind here’s a list of my 10 favorite geeky Christmas jumpers I’ve spotted so far this year.
Merchoid – I Find Your Lack Of Cheer Disturbing
There are an abundance of Star Wars geeky Christmas jumpers this year. This has to be my favourite playing on one of Darth Vader’s most well-known lines. I could totally see husband Dan rocking this knitted Christmas jumper. This great jumper is available to buy from Merchoid for £36.99 which includes shipping.
Tu at Sainsbury’s – Kids Stormtrooper
Wherever Darth Vader is there’s always a Stormtrooper somewhere nearby. This great kids knitted jumper from Tu at Sainsbury’s would be perfect for my son Chase. It’s available from ages 3-14 and prices start from only £12.00.
80stees.com – Retro He-man/Shera
Star Wars not your thing? Have an affinity for retro 80s cartoons? Look no further than 80stees.com for some truly amazing 80s retro cartoon inspired Christmas jumpers. My current pick from their selection is this amazing He-man and She-ra Christmas jumper. This is however an American company so prices will vary depending on the exchange rate and then there’s import duty to think of. Grab yours here, be warned though, there are so many great designs you can’t grab in the UK I will not be held responsible if you go a bit nuts and buy loads,
These jumpers are printed rather than knitted but having owned a Jem and the Holograms Christmas jumper from them for several years I can say that I’ve not had any issues with the printing peeling or coming off in the wash.
Yellow Bull Dog – Kids Street Fighter Ken VS Ryu
Like retro but prefer retro gaming to retro cartoons? Why not share this love by buying this awesome Street Fighter knitted kids jumper! Available from ages 5-14 I think it’s a super unique geeky Christmas jumper that you wont see many others wearing. Available from Yellow Bulldog for £24.99
GeekCore – Legend Of Zelda
I’ve spotted a few Legend of Zelda Christmas jumpers but this design is my favourite. Who wouldn’t want to be walking around with a massive Hylian Crest emblazoned across their chest whilst snowflakes fall all around it. Available from GeekCore for £32.99
Truffle Shuffle – My Little Pony Sparkle All The Way
I love this exclusive deign from Truffle Shuffle. Featuring the original Princess Sparkle this knitted jumper will keep you toasty and looking sparkly this festive season. I still miss the old version of My Little Pony, if someone could only just make one of these with Applejack on the front! Grab yours here for £29.99.
Amazon – Chemistree
Ok so technically this is a t-shirt and not a jumper but it’s still a very cool and geeky option for your kids if they love Chemistry. This fun print is a tree made up of the periodic table with some extra Ho Ho Ho (Holium) added for festive cheer. These start at age 4 and are available up to adult sizes for £16.41
EMP – Winter is coming
Share your allegiance to the Stark House with this Official Game of Thrones Christmas jumper from EMP. I think you could safely wear this one for the entire winter season not just for Christmas. Prices start from £41.99
Merchoid – Season’s Greetings from Slytherin
I couldn’t make a geeky Christmas jumper list without including a Harry Potter option. This official jumper is currently £36.99 to pre-order from Merchoid. The only house they currently have is Slytherin but I’m attempting to track down the rest of the houses
Paladone – Make your Own Christmas Jumper
My last entry to the list is a simple Make your own Christmas Jumper from Paladone. Now this might not be geeky yet but it could be. The jumper comes with a selection of Christmas themed iron on patches. If you want to add your own favourite geeky theme you could by simply looking for extra iron on patches from Etsy or Ebay for whatever you wanted!
Hope my list of my favourite geeky Christmas jumpers has inspired you to look for something a little bit different this year. There’s a large number of options for adults but not as many geeky options for kids. I’m hoping in further years we see a lot more official options available in kids sizes too. Have you got a geeky Christmas jumper? Will you be taking part in Christmas Jumper Day this year? Let me know what Christmas jumper you’ll be wearing below!
