The Top Ten Kids Christmas Jumpers Save The Children's Christmas Jumper Day by Rebecca Trickey
It’s no secret that I love a good festive outfit. I definitely owned more maternity Christmas jumpers than most people I know when I was pregnant!
So I was only too pleased to review this years’ range of Christmas jumpers to help your little ones look the part.
Here’s my rundown of the top 10 boys and girls Christmas knits to brighten up your festivities this year!
Matching family knitwear or pyjamas is the peak of Christmas clothing for me, and I was pleased to see the number of stores who have brought out lovely ranges this year. Although not currently available in the sizes I wanted, these knits have the reversible sequins which will help keep older children entertained throughout December. This design was also husband-approved so I should probably snap a few up before they disappear!
I was after the Thomas the Tank Engine knit for my Thomas-obsessed son, which is currently sold out, but was impressed with the whole of the Tu festive kidswear range. They stock a lovely range of unisex patterns as well as boys, girls and Character designs such as Peppa Pig, Hey Duggee and The Gruffalo. I picked out this lovely grey penguin fairisle design which also comes in Dads sizes!
(Now is a good time if you’re thinking of picking up some Tu knitwear as they have 25% off all clothing until Monday 2nd December!)
Matalan is always one of our first stops for the ‘Mini Me’ range, and this year did not disappoint. They have a fantastic range of penguin, bauble and slogan prints. My favourite was this classic fairisle pattern with reindeer in red, and the matching grey version aimed at the dads and sons.
The matching family knits in M&S only seemed to cover the fathers and sons range, and not mothers and daughters, so perhaps I was late to the party! I picked out the Mini Me blue penguin jumper as a favourite, which features cute carol-singing penguins. However some of the kids-only knits are beautiful too.
I couldn’t resist featuring this classic festive knit! It’s a wonderful design featuring applique Christmas characters including an elf, penguin, reindeer and holly. It’s the kind of jumper I can imagine us crafting together in years to come. I only wish it came in matching adult sizes!
JoJo has a lovely collection of Christmas jumpers and kitted dresses. Their Christmas accessories like tights, hats, socks and leggings are to die for! I picked this reindeer cardigan, but there was an equally lovely red robin version too.
Another store jumping on the matching family Christmas knitwear trend is Peacocks, who have a range of matching fairisle and reindeer designs in at the moment. This cute fluffy polar bear design jumped out at me, and with close-matching mum jumper available in grey, I hope to be adding these to my Christmas collection!
We love a Disney film in our house, and any fellow Disney fans will not be disappointed with these for all the family! Our only gripe was that the child’s sizes don’t start until age 2. Options for babies include a very cute Winnie the Pooh jumper that will more than make up for it though. We are also big fans of the Minnie Mouse ‘holiday cheer’ festive cardigan.
We tend to get a fair amount of children’s clothes from H&M and like that we can find some unique designs and styles there. Although they don’t seem to do ‘mini me’ style adult versions, we loved many of the unisex sweatshirts and knits. Again it was a case of trying not to add everything to the basket! I chose this cute grey marl teddy bear fairisle knit which would look fantastic on our toddler.
This is my favourite fairisle pattern I’ve seen for girls so far, it’s cute and girly with the bunnies but not over the top. It should be snuggly and warm too, with being 10% wool it looks well worth the investment.
