We are spending Christmas in our new home this year with just our immediate family – yippee! No travelling, no parents and no commitments other than eating and drinking far too much for 72 hours – I cannot wait.
I have spent Christmas Day for the past 38 years with others and as such it’s always been the norm to ‘get dressed’ for Christmas Day by 10am. I have always been made to feel that you dress up on Christmas Day for the lunch/afternoon and lazy evening. But I hate that mid afternoon slump on the sofa whilst in a dress/heels or trousers too tight, so this year I have a solution for our family: Family Christmas Novelty Jumpers!
So off I went to search for ladies, men’s and children’s jumpers …… BRICK WALL. You can buy lots of men’s Christmas jumpers, you can buy lots of cute baby Christmas jumpers, but I am struggling to find a women’s Christmas jumper for me (not sweatshirt) and some for the boys (age 5 and 8) .. I could buy a small men’s jumper but why can’t I find a size 10 ladies jumper with a silly something on the front?
Perhaps over sized is the way forward to allow room for my full tummy come 4pm?
Here are my selections for the best Christmas Novelty Jumpers 2012:
UPDATE .. as I went back to look at my choices that I’d found, I quickly put out a tweet asking why I couldn’t find anything suitable .. and low and behold within 1 minute I was directed to Christmas Jumper King – it’s a HEAVEN for someone like me trying to (embarrassingly) dress us for Christmas Day! And shortly after (10 seconds) I had another tweet from Funky Christmas Jumpers
So here, from Christmas Jumper King are my top finds. Shall be making a purchasing decision very soon so we can wear them to a few family events throughout December - why ridicule ourselves just on one day of the year?
Delivery - £4.95 (one price regardless of order size)
And here from Funky Christmas Jumpers are my family finds for our novelty Christmas jumper wearing month.
Delivery - €7.95 (one price regardless of order size)
The question is, should we wear ALL the same jumper or each family member different? I’m kind of loving the same jumper for all members idea .. what do you think?
Oh and as for the other jumpers I found? Pah, no comparison when you have the two sites mentioned above.
I'll post the jumper/s of choice on Avenue 57 closer to the time.
