(Pocket-lint) – It’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid… of an ugly sweater or Christmas jumper.
In fact, it’s time to embrace the madness of a garish garment covered in snowflakes, and other, usually, unacceptable patterns – especially if you’re a geek, like us.
There are some amazing geek-tastic ugly sweaters and Christmas jumpers out there. Here are our favourites.
Die Hard Christmas
Now I have a machine gun! There’s much debate as to whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie or not, but you can wear the jumper from the movie nonetheless.
Santa Jaws is coming to town
Numskull’s new range for 2021 contains this snappy little number. Mainly because Jaws might snap your arm off if you get too close.
This subtle – well, subtler than most – Christmas jumper features Boba Fett and Han Solo from Empire Strikes Back.
Make it Marvel
Numskull has a whole collection of amazing superhero jumpers. There’s one each for Captain America, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Deadpool. Check out this one featuring the web slinger.
Christmas is Coming
So, Game of Thrones might be long over, but that doesn’t mean you don’t still love it. And iIf you’re a fan of all things Thrones, this is probably one of the best Christmas jumpers we’ve seen.
E.T. around the tree
Chris Rea might have been driving home for Christmas, but you can “phone home” with this festive E.T. treat.
Merry Street Fighter
Street Fighter featured on your Christmas jumper? Yes please. We love the KO-KO-KO instead of HO-HO-HO writing.
Space Invaders Christmas Jumper
Retro gaming. Whether you’re into it or not, you can’t help to admire where the whole thing started. And Space Invaders is an utter classic and you’ll really look the part this Christmas.
Cracking fireplace Christmas jumper
Christmas jumpers come in all shapes, sizes and styles, but how many do you know that are interactive? This one lets you download an app, then use your phone’s screen to brighten up the front with a warming fireplace scene.
B.T.T.F. at X.M.A.S.
We reckon it’d be easy to generate 1.21 gigawatts just by rubbing a balloon up against this Back to the Future Christmas sweater.
Galactic Helmets Star Wars
We love this Star Wars jumper so much, we might even consider wearing it throughout the rest of the year too. You can pick it up from 80stees.com.
Mario and Luigi Christmas Jumper
Yep, that’s right. Mario, Luigi and even Bowser celebrate Christmas! And who doesn’t want them on their festive jumper?
DC Comics Batman jumper
Feeling a bit more flamboyant? How about this striking number from Numskull. A bright and colourful Batman Christmas jumper with a retro vibe.
Baby Yoda Knitted Christmas Jumper
Baby Yoda, AKA The Child, is undeniably cute – even more so when adorning a Christmas jumper. If you’ve enjoyed The Mandalorian, you’ll love this too.
Star Wars Stormtrooper Up to Snow Good
Stormtroopers – the backbone of the Empire. Known for not being able to shoot very well and now apparently great for Christmas jumpers too.
Beam Me Up, Santa!
Channel your inner geek and show off your love for all things Trek with this in-your-face jumper. We can’t say wearing it will make you live long and prosper, but at least you’ll look gloriously geeky.
You’ll really be able to steal Christmas with this one. Ahem.
Who doesn’t want a bit of The Hoff singing “jump in my sleigh” at Christmas?
