Ok, I am going to say this out loud. I really don’t like Christmas jumpers. I really don’t. I love Christmas and pretty much everything about it. But I don’t like Christmas jumpers. I always buy them (begrudgingly) for the kids and I bought a hideous Christmas tree jumper for my husband that even plays Jingle Bells but I am quite happy to never have owned one of my own.
When Jolly Christmas Jumper contacted me about working with them, I saw the name of the company and inwardly groaned. Then I took a look at their website and did a little whoop of joy. Finally, a company that made decent Christmas jumpers, Christmas jumpers that I would happily wear. Result. Plus the images of people wearing the jumpers on the website made me laugh out loud.
Jolly Christmas Jumper was the brainchild of Bristol-based illustrator and copywriter Jenna Thompson. Looking for a quirky festive jumper, she was uninspired by the selection and started designing her own. I am so glad she did.
The idea behind Jolly Christmas Jumper is to create simple understated designs that are not cheesy, crass or ugly and I think she has succeeded.
Whether you are like me and not the hugest fan of festive jumpers or maybe you absolutely love them and are always looking for something new to add to your collection, you really need to check out the Jolly Christmas Jumper website. The designs are funny, festive and completely wearable and to be honest, most of the designs could be worn long after Christmas. I am certainly looking forward to wearing my Christmas hoodie and those are words I never expected to hear myself say.
I was sent a Christmas Hoodie from the Jolly Christmas Jumper FOC for the purpose of the review. All opinions are my own.
