Ten Nerdy (or geeky) Christmas Jumpers

At first I was really struggling to get into the Christmas spirit. However, watching Elf really does get you excited for the Christmas season- trust me! Either way, it’s past the 1st of December so I can officially talk Christmas with all of you, plus there is snow outside my house and snow makes everything feel just that little bit more like Christmas.

I also bloody love a bit of snow (and Martin gets ridiculously excited by it too) despite like all British people we are completely unprepared (I NEED snow boots). Though I have to admit where I live people seem annoyingly prepared, I’m convinced its because people have a lot of money in this area (hence why I am so poor all the time in comparison) and so are so well prepared because they are used to going on skiing holidays (I however am not).

The only things I have that I could wear are my old white Dr Martens, which make pretty good snow boots. However, I feel weird wearing them because they’re leather (but yet I still can’t throw away because memories- it’s a whole thing- see my previous posts). However, I don’t really think they are work appropriate- so the journey in tomorrow is going to be interesting to say the least.

Snow

The snow outside my window. 

Since everyone I know is definitely feeling the chill, I thought I’d do a list of my favourite nerdy/ geeky (chose the descriptor of your choice) Christmas jumpers that I have found. Also, before I start, I want to issue a small disclaimer. This is just a list of jumpers I want to buy. I haven’t bought from all these retailers so can’t guarantee their service, etc. Buy at your own risk, and make sure to thoroughly check out each website in advance.

I also want to apologise for the mix of Tumblr and Pinterest posts included below (it will become clear soon). Basically, I wanted the posts all to be Tumblr posts so my Tumblr was full of nice Christmas jumpers but what happened instead is that I now have a few posts that don’t make sense because the other websites didn’t load the image of the jumper for the Tumblr post. I also now have an incomplete Pinterest album so as per usual my life is a total fail!

1. Star Wars Princess Leia and Han Solo under the Mistletoe jumper 

Modelled here by the awesome Sarah Louise Brand– her Instagram is definitely high on my inspiration list. It’s red (which I love in a Christmas jumper) and it features one of my favourite romances of all time, and one of my favourite Sci-Fi heroines Princess Leia. It’s for all those reasons that this jumper is the number 1 Christmas jumper I need in my life.

Price: £24.99.

Retailer: IWOOT.

2. Labyrinth Fairisle Knitted Jumper 

This is quite frankly an amazing jumper. One, because I love a good 80s throwback, especially when it comes to jumper. Two, because I spot a new amazing detail everytime I look at it. And three, because who doesn’t want a Labyrinth Christmas jumper.

Price: £35.99

Retailer: Truffle Shuffle.

3. Jurassic World Fair Isle Christmas Jumper 

I will ignore that this is a Jurassic World and not a Jurassic Park jumper because it is so awesome (and no, I haven’t actually seen Jurassic World because I am in denial it exists- along with the new Jumanji film). This though is truly a great looking jumper, and one for anyone who would prefer a black Christmas jumper.

Price: £29.99.

Retailer: Truffle Shuffle.

There’s is also a Men’s fit version of this jumper available for anyone who prefers their jumpers to fit that way! 

4. Miffy Let It Snow Christmas Jumper 

So I know some people might argue that Miffy is more cute than nerdy, but for the sake of an argument let’s just agree that by nerdy I mean anything that refers to a piece of pop culture. Also, this jumper is just so adorable that I had to include it, especially considering what I see when I look out my window (snow if you hadn’t gathered that already)! This jumper is also one of the more ‘neutral’ options on this list so if you want a bit of Christmas cute, and are unlike me and don’t realise that half of what you wear would be considered ‘out there’ then this is probably the jumper for you.

Price: £29.99.

Retailer: Truffle Shuffle.

5. Spider-Man Knitted Christmas Jumper 

Well, I did say I loved a good old red Christmas jumper and this one definitely hits that box. If you’re like me and the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse trailer has got you pumped then wear this and show off your Spidey fan pride. Especially, as it’s on sale!

 

Price: £24.99

Retailer: Geek Core

6. Captain America Knitted Christmas Jumper 

So this one is not only red. But red, white and blue- funny that, for a Captain America themed jumper. If you’re like me and Captain America is one of your favourite Avengers then this jumper is for you. Plus, you could always use it for a Captain America at Christmas time cosplay (we all know he wouldn’t be able to resist to have a themed jumper).

Price: £24.99

Retailer: Geek Core

7. Star Wars Yoda Christmas Jumper 

I’m not going to lie I mainly love this jumper because of the pun- ‘The Season To Be Jolly It Is’. However, it is also a really nice looking Star Wars jumper for those who aren’t into the more romantic offering I suggested earlier. Also, Yoda doesn’t look weird on the design, which is always a plus because I’ve seen some sketchy looking Yoda’s on Star Wars merchandise in my time. This would be amazing to wear to go see Star Wars: The Last Jedi next week as well (I’m so excited!!!).

Price: £32.99

Retailer: Geek Core

8. Stranger Things Holiday Light-Up Sweater (aka a Jumper)

So I refused to put ‘ugly’ into the title for this item like it says on the product description because I respectively disagree. For those of you who don’t know, I love, LOVE Stranger Things and I’d be totally willing to pay the custom charges I’d incur to buy this amazing jumper. The only thing that would make this better for me is if this was a cardigan and not a jumper but then it wouldn’t be in this post if it was, would it!!!

I wish that I also would look half as good as lunestelle does wearing it (which is highly unlikely).

Price: £19.70 (not including shipping/ customs, etc.)

Retailer: Target

9. Wonder Woman: Winter Wonderland Knitted Christmas Jumper

Just like how Wonder Woman saved the Justice League film for me (along with The Flash, and despite the fact that they tried their hardest to ruin her character); let this Wonder Woman jumper save your Christmas style (please forgive that whole sentence). The model in the images on the website totally rocks this, and has convinced me I can look as good in it as well, which hasn’t helped my need for this jumper. Either way, it’s a Wonder Woman jumper so I’d want it whether it was Christmas themed or not (though obviously depending on the style because I’m fussy).

Price: £36.99

Retailer: Merchoid

10. Playstation Official Pink Christmas Jumper 

I need to start this one with a confession. I’m not actually a Playstation user (except for the occasional times Martin lets me have the controller and I just wander around aimlessly and bump into walls). However, I know a lot of people are so I wanted to include one for the game lovers out there. I unfortunately didn’t see any good Anime jumpers, as I wanted to include something from that category too. I also don’t know if there is a fierce Xbox vs. Playstation rivalry and if this will cause internet ‘beef’ but I’ll be honest I saw no Xbox jumpers and I really like this jumper. I did consider including some Nintendo jumpers but none particularly caught my eye (please comment if you’ve seen some good ones).

Either way, I really should get into playing Martin’s playstation more because I really like this jumper (ha, ha), though I really don’t need another obsession to add to my list!

Link is to Geek Core (where it sold out, as I was struggling to pin the item from Amazon). 

Price: £34.99.

Retailer: Amazon

So, there it is- a collection of my favourite Christmas jumpers out there for anyone who like me loves a bit of pop culture with their Christmas jumper. This post seriously did not help my desire though to buy the first jumper on the list, so please someone buy one of these and send me pictures so I can live vicariously through you (ha, ha).

While I may have missed Blogmas (is that a thing? I know Youtubers do Vlogmas) I do want to do some more Christmas themed posts to match my Christmas blog theme change (let me know your thoughts!) so please post suggestions because unsurprisingly I’m in a bit of a creative rut again. I’m thinking maybe some Harry Potter themed posts because Christmas will always be linked to Hogwarts for me.
