A Christmas Jumper should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe over the festive period. And not just for Christmas Day, but also for Christmas Jumper Day on the 13th of December, to raise money and awareness for ‘Save the Children’.
The Save the Children Fund is a global charity, established in the UK back in 1919 to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts. Christmas Jumper Day launched in 2012 and has been an annual occurrence ever since. More than 4 million people get involved to really make a difference and everyone gets another excuse to dust of their festive knitwear.
Everyone can get involved, your friends, family, kids, and colleagues by wearing your Christmas jumper with pride and donating £2 to this wonderful charity. You can set up a fundraising page or donate directly to Save the Children. Head over to Christmas Jumper Day website here to find out all the details, FAQs and info on how you can get involved in fundraising for such an incredible cause.
Where to get your Christmas jumpers
You don’t have to go out and buy a brand new jumper; Save the Children promotes getting creative and up-cycling any old jumpers you have. This is not only good for the environment and on your bank account, but also it could be a fun, festive activity for you and your family.
Save The Children - Christmas Jumper shop
However if you are in the market for a Christmas knit, Save The Children have put together their own Christmas jumper shop that has you covered, whatever your style, there is something for everyone. I have also browsed the selections online, so you don’t have to and these in my opinion are some of the best on the market…
Something a little more personal - Not On The High Street
If you are after something a bit more unique and want to support small, independent creative businesses then look no further. Not On The High Street is home to more than 5,000 of the UK's best small creative businesses and their selection of Christmas jumpers is wonderful. These would also make a perfect gift for someone special.
The understated Christmas jumper - Debenhams
Christmas jumpers do not have to be ugly and if you are not into the whole novelty aspect of a Christmas jumper then why not treat yourself to a beautiful, festive themed knit. Debenhams have a rather impressive selection of understated festive jumpers that would definitely count as a Christmas jumper, but something you could wear throughout winter and not get weird looks in the middle of February.
On a budget - George at Asda
George at Asda never disappoints. They have some fabulous festive wear this season covering all bases from your Christmas jumpers to your Christmas PJs and party pieces. They offer some great matching sets for the whole family and with prices starting as low as £8 you can’t really go too wrong.
For the Kids - Next
Next have some of the cutest Christmas jumpers going, and their kids section are just amazing. If you want to have the most adorable dressed kids this Christmas jumper day then check their selection out.
The classy - Marks and Spencers
These aren’t just any Christmas jumpers… they are super classy Christmas jumpers. If you are not up for a garish knit this season, perhaps check out the M&S range for a more sophisticated look. They have an impressively large selection, offering something for everyone including the funny and punny Christmas jumpers.
Wherever you decide to get your Christmas jumper from, be sure to get involved on the 13th of December with the rest of the nation on Christmas Jumper Day 2019.
