Christmas may feel like it's a while away yet but we're already seeing festive items appearing in shops as the giant global commercial juggernaut slowly but surely splutters into gear. Before long you'll be panicking about buying last-minute gifts for distant relations and wondering where on earth you're going to source your tree from with only a week before the big day. What a fun time!

Thankfully there's one thing you can prepare for right now, and that's the predictable office parties and family get-togethers where everyone is forced to wear a festive jumper to mark the occasion. Instead of digging out your usual woolly we'd advise you take a look at the special - and 100 percent official - Nintendo-themed range that Merchoid has on offer this year.

Just imagine how awesome you'd look turning up to the office Christmas party with a Triforce-emblazoned jumper, or how impressed all your friends and co-workers would be with your Super Mario retro woolly. If those two don't catch your eye, then why not pick the Pokémon offering, complete with giant Pokéball motif?

All three cost £42.99 each. Go on, you've been really good this year.
