They’re bold, they’re whimsical and they’re a whole lot of fun… Christmas jumpers scream, well, Christmas. Whether adorned with a chirpy robin, a geared-up reindeer or a happy Santa, a Christmas jumper adds to the excitement of Christmas Day. In fact, they’re amazing in the run-up to Christmas because, let’s face it, the whole of December is filled with festivities. Have you experienced just how warm they can be too?
