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.

More like you‘ll be the joke of the office party in one of these. Seriously, all three are hideous imo.
@GoldenGamer88 That's pretty much exactly why people even wear these kinds of Christmas sweaters these days, really.
Ah.........no thanks. Though the Zelda jumper is nicest, if there's such a thing.
All the great artwork in video games and yet the clothing manufacturers churn out this ****.
Excessively expensive but this has become the norm with Christmas jumpers.
Also they aren't meant to look good.
Mildly tempted by the Zelda one though.
I'm itching already.
Probably going to buy the Mario one. It looks bad, but not too bad.
Wearing a horrible sweaters in the x-mas season is a deep rooted tradition.
All of you going "Ewwww!" just need to get into the Christmas spirit.
Love the Zelda and Mario sweaters, just not the price. I would proudly wear either of those to a Christmas gathering. Don’t take yourself so seriously. The holiday season is for sharing, even if it’s sharing a laugh with others at your own expense.
Edit - I have a similar ugly sweater of my favorite sports team, and I’ve worn it to multiple office and family holiday gatherings. It’s hideous, and it’s a crowd pleaser.
Love Christmas jumpers, but that is way too expensive especially when you can get a sonic jumper for £ 30
Ugly as $**t.. not even an good ugly type, they r really ugly.
I like the design The Yetee has on offer today:
The cheesiest and more hideous the Xmas jumper the better. That's what they're all about. I like them! (though for my described reason not because I actually "like" them!)
I'm getting Zelda's one
I got the 8 Bit blue Zelda Xmas jumper last year. Will last me for years to come so no need to buy any more. They all look tacky, which is exactly the point of Christmas jumpers.
They've got loads more Nintendo jumpers than the ones shown here. Loads of cheaper ones, too. Why have NL only advertised the most expensive ones? There are some for £27.99 on the website, with better designs too.
Is this article a paid ad, only advertising the more expensive ones? Does the law not stipulate that paid ads should be marked as such? Can't see anything in this article highting that. Perhaps this should be reported? This 'article' leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. Just can't understand why, if this wasn't an ad, they wouldn't NLhighlight the cheaper jumpers too? Suspicious...
That said, the Nintendo ones have the worst designs. The Star Wars ones look much better and actually follow traditional Christmas themes, such as a tree.
@Late Thank you for putting that jumper up there. Just bought mine. The design is awesome!
These awfully tacky which seems to be the point of Xmas jumpers and I love them!!
Whats with that pokémon one, haha
@Darkmian Yeah that Zelda one rocks I would totally wear that! £43 a bit steep but it does say knitted which I assume means with wool.
Ok I looked it up, 100% acrylic. Yuk. Not for that price, cheers!
I want the Zelda one. The Mario one is almost nice aside from the text.
"However, a good laugh is a mighty good thing, and rather too scarce a good thing; the more's the pity. So, if any one man, in his own proper person, afford stuff for a good joke to anybody, let him not be backward, but let him cheerfully allow himself to spend and be spent in that way. And the man that has anything bountifully laughable about him, be sure there is more in that man than you perhaps think for."
@Ooyah - Beautiful. Words to live by. May we never stop chasing the great white whale. Cheers, my friend in jest and jolly.
