4. Hotline Bling
£20 ~ teechip.com
The global phenomenon that was ‘Hotline Bling’ meme saw Drake’s famous dance turn into wielding a lightsaber, swat away a spider or play a bit of tennis.
5. Dinosaur Christmas jumper
£45 ~ nhmshop.co.uk
Entwining giant lizards with festive attire is a sure fire way to elevate Christmas spirit levels to new heights.
Nieces or nephews will firmly place you in the cool aunt or uncle category if they see you donning this jumper from the Natural History Museum on the 25th.
6. Merry Sithmas Knitted Unisex Christmas Jumper
£37 ~ merchoid.com
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens rapidly approaching December 2015, there’s no better excuse for a nerdy jumper.
Just remember though followers of the Sith, ‘Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering’.
A standard penguin jumper would have never made this list but this is no simple design.
The head of the penguin also acts as a hood so those cold ears can also be guarded against the harsh winter chill.
Or, if you’re someone who likes to wear their hood up even indoors, you’re also well catered for.
8. D-Struct Twerky Christmas Jumper
£28 ~ Asos
This may be a bit of a dated reference but just imagine a bunch of real life turkeys twerking in a strange version of the Evian roller-skating baby advert.
Are you giggling? Then this is your choice.
9. Brave Soul Christmas Jumper Elfie Stick
£38.00 ~ Asos
Who knew Elves loved taking selfies? This brilliant tongue in cheek jumper is a sure winner of any Xmas jumper competition.
We’re still searching for a candy cane selfie stick though!
10. Black Bellfield Polar Bear
£40 ~ River Island
River Island brings out an edgy side to Christmas with fighting polar bear prints on this demure black jumper.
Keeping the novelty, but bringing the cool back into Christmas attire.
11. Spider Santa
£39.99 ~ funkychristmasjumpers.co.uk
Mrs Claus won’t be very happy if she ever catches her man leaving a house with a little more sugar than what was in those milk and cookies … Spiderman style.
12. Navy Merry Christmas You Filthy Animal Jumper
£30 ~ Topman
Finally, why not end on a classic? The Home Alone film franchise has been a firm Christmas favourite since 1990.
Whether it’s ordering a pizza or escaping from hotel staff with a Christmas themed plastic doll, this famous line from the 1938 film Angels with Filthy Souls has served little Kevin McCallister well.
Hopefully it will do the same for you.
Any of these choices will surely bring a chuckle to family members, as well as prove you’re not part of the mainstream flock of Christmas jumper wearers with their lack of funny word play and social commentary.
