As we absolutely FLY towards the festive season – get prepped for the jingle bells and novelty knits that are so synonymous with December! Talking of novelty knits, Christmas Jumper Day has established a real place in our pre-Christmas calendars and each year, we have some friendly competition for the best one. It’s a great way to get in the festive spirit especially when it involves the kids – because, let’s face it – they NEVER have any trouble getting excited for the big day. So – highlight the 16th December in your diaries and continue reading for how your kids can be TOP of the novelty knit-game this year!
Once gift-shopping, writing cards and putting up the decs is underway (who said Christmas was easy?), the next thing to tick off is adding some festive cheer to your children’s wardrobe. Temperatures are plummeting, so chunky knits are a must for after school and weekend fun. Luckily, we have plenty of sparkly, fairisle and character motif options to choose from. To make things easier, we’ve picked out our faves – so all you need to do is Order by Midnight for next day delivery.
Often, the best festive knits are something your dad would wear – think intricate festive scenes, prints emblazoned with yuletide phrases and anything with a 3D Rudolf nose! Would your little ones give a thumbs up to any of the above for a lighthearted nod to Christmas dressing? The muted palette of ecru, navy and grey is perfect for kids who prefer subtlety over statement-making. These can be worn with jeans, joggers… and layered over a simple tee or even a shirt for something smarter when visiting the rellies!
A bit of sparkle never goes a miss at Christmas, the more brazen the better for kids who love colour! Details like sequin reindeer and flashing snowman noses against a backdrop of red makes for the perfect combo come December. Finish off with contrasting socks, a fur-lined coat and chunky scarf for the ultimate cosy ensemble.
Why not surprise the little’uns with a novelty knit alongside their advent calendar tomorrow? Or let them dress up for the annual pilgrimage to purchase the Christmas tree? Shop this season’s Christmas jumpers for the all the family right here!
