5 Christmas Jumpers and Colin Firth

I'd like to say it all started with Colin Firth and the first Bridget Jones film, but I had a very similar reindeer jumper back in 1987. Here's my quick round-up of Christmas woollies. Nothing too subtle here! I like my festive jumpers to be garish and seasonal, not tasteful Fairisle.

Marks and Spencer pale blue reindeer Christmas jumper

This jumper from Marks and Spencer is very similar to the one I had last year, which was cream;  it has a reindeer motiff and sparkly antlers. £29.50.

Yumi robin knit from House of Fraser
If robins are more your thing, this is a cute jumper from House of Fraser, £28 reduced from £35.

Who doesn't love a sequin at Christmas?  Here's a sequinned gingerbread man jumper from Top Shop, £36

If you want to copy Colin and sport a reindeer jumper, this one is £45 at Fat Face:

Finally, if you blanch at the expense of buying a jumper that may only be worn a couple of times, there are plenty of "decorate your own Christmas jumper" kits out there with prices starting from £3.99.
