This Friday the 14th of December is Christmas Jumper Day. The perfect opportunity to pop on some fun festive threads in the name of charity, all proceeds from the day to go Save the Children.
When it comes to Christmas, however, what if you’re a bit more ‘Scrouged’ and less ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’? Don’t worry as we’ve sourced 10 wonderful alternative Christmas jumpers for people who hate Christmas but want to support Christmas Jumper Day.
What’s Christmas Jumper Day?
Christmas jumper day is celebrated on Friday 14th of December this year.
A chance to wear something fun and festive to work or school, you pay a donation of £2 to take part ( or £1 if you’re at school,) which goes towards building a better future for children across the world. One donation of just £2 can pay for enough antibiotics to treat 5 children suffering from pneumonia – one of the biggest killers of children.
So, whatever your feelings about Christmas, pop on a Christmas style jumper like the ones below and donate to this super worthy cause. Read more about Christmas Jumper Day here.
Alternative Christmas jumpers
Not everybody loves Christmas. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some of the festivities and support a worthy cause while you’re at it.
We love Christmas Jumper Day because you can go wild with a festive jumper complete with fairy lights or err on the side of caution with something far more subtle. Whether you want to go bright, funny, classy or sparkly, we’ve got a fabulous selection of alternative Christmas jumpers for you to choose from below.
These are all available online so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to pick up this year’s non-Christmassy Christmas jumper.
Which one are you going to choose?
Fairisle Christmas jumpers
Fairisle is a beautiful look that’s more cosy and wintry than outright Christmassy.
A traditional style of knitting that originated in the North of Scotland, fairisle jumpers come in a huge variety of colours, so you’re bound to find one that takes your fancy.
We’re loving this Burton Menswear Christmas Fairisle Jumper in White from ASOS for £20 for men.
Women, meanwhile, can enjoy this Monki High Neck Cropped Fairisle Jumper from Monki, also available on ASOS for £20.
Sparkly alternative Christmas jumpers
Not feeling fairisle? Keep it glam and slightly festive with something sparkly.
At this time of year, there are always lots of glittery style jumpers in the shops, perfect for Christmas Jumper Day, the office Christmas party and the big day itself.
This Sparkly Slash Neck Jumper from Marks and Spencer comes in four colours, including black, dark marine, ochre and cream for £29.50. This Tinsel Sweater from Next also comes in black and rose for £28 and is fabulously festive with no Santa or Rudolph in sight.
Colourful alternative Christmas jumpers
Get on board with Christmas Jumper Day this year with a colourful jumper that lifts the spirits without screaming Christmas. Opt for a nod towards cheery red or festive green – there’s heaps of choice currently available in-store and online.
For men, this Red Crew Neck Jumper, also from New Look, is down to £12.99 in the sale and is guaranteed to fill you with cheer, whatever your opinions on Christmas. We’re also enjoying this men’s Kiomi Jumper in Green, available from ASOS for £29.00.
