1. TWDYC Mens Embroidery Knitted Snow

Let’s get started with an ugly red sweater! This knitted sweater presents a charming scene of a skiing village, with little tiny embroidered people making their way up and down the slope. The little village is abuzz in the background. If you’re looking for an ugly red sweater, this one is definitely for you.

It would also make an excellent gift for that family member who says they don’t want a present this year! Regardless, it’s men's only, so bear that in mind, ladies - unless you want to go for the ugly oversized Christmas sweater look that is.

2. Sleeve Round Neck Holiday Pullover

We cannot get over how ugly this range is - we love it. This ladies’ sweater comes in heaps of different prints and color combinations - we love the one with the ugly fluffy white-collar, or the huge pine trees on a black knitted background if you want something more subtle.


Another great option if you’re trying to play it cool is the more classic Alpine print options in red and white. It’s high quality made from polyester and cotton and is super cozy for cold snowy holiday nights.

3. Tipsy Elves Black Lit

Light is one of the things Christmas is all about right? Well, it’s also about giving, and celebrating with friends and family - and for some, that will include ‘getting lit’ as the kids these days say. This ugly Christmas sweater is just as hilarious as it is ugly, thanks to its hilarious message.

It comes in black, with white writing and a decorated tree on the front. The adorned tree lights also lit up, giving ‘lit’ a whole new (and literal) meaning. For extra comic effect, give it to a grandparent to wear this Christmas.

4. Tipsy Elves Funny and Classic

Now, these are a little naughty and most definitely in the spirit of the ugly Christmas sweater tradition. They strike the perfect balance between ugly and ironic. We’ve got Santa reading the paper as he’s using the chimney as a toilet, beer pong, Santa asking to ‘send nudes’, as well as a booze bottle Christmas tree.

Since they’re a unisex design, you can match the vibe of each family member with a unique ugly Christmas sweater for them. Alternatively, give these as gifts to the more cheeky family members!

5. LED Light Up Reindeer

Yes, this ugly Christmas sweater isn’t just ugly in two dimensions… It’s also ugly in 3D! This Rudolph sweater has LED lights that are wrapped around his head, a big red nose that you can touch, and a scarf that even comes down off the sweater.

6. Ripple Junction Krampus Knit

To us, this sweater is so ugly… that it may even be cool. With a cool, symmetrical alpine design, this ugly Christmas sweater has the words KRAMPUS printed in the middle. This sweater is a must-buy for the ‘too cool for school’ kid in your family.

The sweater is unisex, and according to the reviews, it is warm enough to as a sweater but not too bulky - always a plus. Other reviewers also say that the sweater is ‘excellent quality, and I receive nothing but compliments.’

7. FOCO NFL Block

If you’re a diehard sports fan that lives for your NFL team - we’d be surprised if you don’t already own this patriotic and proud sweater! Each team comes with its own design, in the team colors, and with the team mascot on the front too.



What’s great about this sweater is that you can also wear it to cooler games, not just during Christmas! This also makes a great gift for the football fanatics in your family or friendship circle. Also since it doesn’t look too Christmasey, you can wear this out and about all winter long.
