Gone are the days of raiding our grandparents’ and parents’ closets for ugly Christmas sweaters. Online retailers have caught on that our want for more and more kitschy Christmas attire, doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon. And my goodness are there some real gems out there! With Christmas sweaters featuring everything from dinosaurs to our favorite Christmas movies and TV shows and even sloths…you can showcase your Christmas spirit with a sweater as unique as you are. (How clichΓ© is that? Haha.)

I’ve rounded up 15 of my favorites, below…and not surprisingly, there are quite a few movie centered ones included! I also put a couple of bonus clothing items at the bottom, in case sweaters just aren’t your thing. Enjoy! And let me know your favorites in the comments section!

15 Amazing, “Ugly” Christmas Sweaters You Can Buy Online

1.) Darth Vader

Of course a Star Wars-themed Christmas sweater is going to be at the top of this list! I love that this one comes in sizes ranging from small – 3x too.

Click here to shop the Darth Vader sweater.

2.) Sloth

I know this is a guy cardigan, but out of all these sweaters/cardigans/sweatshirts this is the one I’m currently most serious about buying. I’m thinking if I just size down it should be OK. Cardigans can be a little baggy anyways.

3.) A Wine Christmas

Why yes, I am dreaming of a wine Christmas! Sorry, there are going to be a couple sweatshirts squeaking their way in here. (They were just too good not to share!) Hopefully, you guys aren’t too picky about that. πŸ˜‰

4.) Rugrats!

So, Rugrats was perhaps the best television series of my childhood. How awesome is it that I can even buy a Christmas sweater to show off my love of this show? Haha.

Click here to shop the Rugrats sweater.

5.) Snoopy

There is nothing better than Snoopy at Christmas time. I do already own a Snoopy Christmas sweater too, and it’s one of my most complimented pieces of clothing!

Click here to shop the Snoopy sweater.

6.) Stranger Things

Could it get anymore perfect? A Christmas lights-themed Stranger Things sweater with a reference to The Upside Down? Yes it can! Because those Christmas lights actually light up and blink! (And if you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet, stop what you’re doing and get on Netflix!)

Click here to shop this Stranger Things sweater.

7.) Cats

There are A LOT of cat-themed sweaters out there and I couldn’t decide which one I liked better between these two, so I just included them both! #indecisive

Click here to shop the 1st cat sweater, and click here to shop the 2nd one.

8.) Griswold Family Christmas

Christmas Vacation sweatshirt

Likewise, I couldn’t decide between these three “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” sweaters/sweatshirts. I like how Christmasy the middle one is, but the Chevy Chase face might be a bit much? And while I love it, I don’t know if I have the guts to wear the last one. Haha. Either way, Christmas Vacation is the best Christmas movie ever, and who wouldn’t want a Griswold Family Christmas sweater?

Click here to shop the 1st Christmas Vacation sweatshirt, and click here to shop the 2nd sweater, and click here to shop the last one.

9.) A Christmas Story

And if you were shaking your head disagreeing with my previous statement of Christmas Vacation being “the best Christmas movie ever”… it’s likely because you think “A Christmas Story” is the best Christmas movie ever. Don’t worry, this leg lamp sweater has you covered!

10.) Home Alone

Ok, or maybe Home Alone 2 is the best Christmas movie? I don’t know. But feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments!

11.) Jon Snow

Is anyone sick of Jon Snow puns, yet? No? Good. (I assume you’re all cool like me and still find them endlessly amusing. Haha.)

Click here to shop this Jon Snow sweatshirt.

12.) Santa…riding a shark

I mean, why wear a traditional sweater with Santa in a sleigh, when you could wear a sweater with Santa riding a shark? Really, it’s a no-brainer.

Click here to shop the Santa riding a shark sweater.

13. Wear a wreath!

Oooh and you could really go all out in the Christmas department and wear a whole wreath on your sweater! Haha. I don’t think you would ever be able to wash this sweater – but it’d be worth it.

Click here to shop the wreath sweater.

14. Llama sweater

I’m on a llama & alapaca sweater kick lately, so I couldn’t help it, I had to include this sweater. Isn’t he cute?

Click here to shop the llama sweater.

15.) Elf

You could take a heck of a good elfie selfie in this sweater! And really isn’t that the point of wearing a crazy, Christmas sweater? Haha.

Click here to shop the elf sweater.

    I always tell everyone that even if you lived through a style before, you should still be open to it when it comes back. And these sweaters always crack me up. I used to have a ton of them, but most have been thrown out!!
    Have a wonderful Monday!
