STOP PRESS: I've just found my ultimate Christmas jumper, and there's still time to order it for Christmas 2017!
I've got to admit, I've never been a massive fan of Christmas jumpers. It might be something to do with the fact that I have three kids – kitting them out for Christmas Jumper day (15th December 2017, incase you were wondering...) isn't exactly cheap. Still, it's for a great cause so I happily play along.
But it gets harder and harder to find affordable Christmas jumpers every year. Factor in that the youngest completely outgrows hers from one year to the next, and you'll understand why shopping for Christmas jumpers isn't my favourite festive sport.
That was, until I clocked that Next* now sells a personalised Christmas jumper. That's right – you can kit the whole family out in matching personalised Christmas jumpers – the perfect gift, according to Next's sales blurb, for you and your family to celebrate being together. Aw.
Made from cotton blend, Next's personalised Christmas sweatshirts* have a soft feel with fleecy lining, a ribbed neckline and cuffs, and a relaxed fit. You can add your family name to be printed in gold text for the red sweatshirt or in silver text for the black sweatshirt. They're machine washable and available in sizes: S (34-36" chest), M (38-40" chest), L (42-44" chest), XL (46-48" chest).
Next advises that orders should be placed by 18th December if you want this in time for Christmas. Do note that because these are bespoke, they can only be returned if they are faulty, do not fit their description, or do not meet with your instructions.
Now if only they did these in kids' sizes too – I could get the whole clan kitted out for Christmas Day!
