We may well only just be entering October, but that won't even come close to stopping retailers from tempting customers with all sorts of Christmas-themed goodies. If you celebrate the holiday, these new ugly (but actually rather lovely) Christmas sweaters might just be for you.

The designs are available at Merchoid, a site dedicated to selling officially licenced merchandise, and there are plenty of options to choose from. From Zelda, to Mario, to Pokémon, Nintendo's biggest and brightest franchises are all covered, and pre-orders are open right now.

If these don't do it for you, there are also designs featuring Crash Bandicoot, Sonic, Street Fighter, and even Sony or Atari if you feel that way inclined. If you want to take a browse at the full range, head on over to the site here (most designs range from around £36.99 to £42.99).
