It’s the second week of December and it’s officially Christmas jumper season…..no wait, don’t run off!

Hipsters of the world have united to show some love to these former horrors of the fashion world and newsflash….Christmas jumpers are IN!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you will have seen the high-street and supermarkets festooned with novelty jumpers and tees, but they’re all a little samey. A case of ‘seen one, seen ‘em all.

Imagine turning up to the works Christmas do in the same reindeer knit as Bob from accounts… O, the shame!

So what better way to stand out from the crowd and bring a little touch of your inner geek to the fore than to get yourself a bodacious Christmas jumper?

Added bonus….our favourite retailers are all online and will deliver before Christmas Eve, so you can swerve town and the barrage of soggy Primark bags.

Topping our list is a Die Hard inspired grey jersey emblazoned with the classic 1988 film line “Now I have a machine gun, HO HO HO”. Talk about a conversation starter.

Next up has to be the influx of Star Wars designs ahead of The Force Awakens premier next week. Whoever came up with ‘Merry Sithmas’ truly deserves a marketing award and alongside Darth Vader chilling next to an open fire, these designs are retro magic. Available from Truffleshuffle.com

DC fans are also spoilt for choice with fair-isle designs made from the bat sign and the man himself looking fabulously festive are available from EMP Online. Prices from £25.

You might prefer to roll with noughties and purchase an Adventure Time sweater featuring the cartoon legends, Finn and Jake.

A red, white and black yuletide piece will definitely have fans carolling the AT theme-tune and quoting their favourite lines. Check out Forbidden Planet for more designs.

No geek-chic Christmas jumper round up would be complete without a nod to the Doctor. The BBC online store is currently stocking an exclusive Dr Who knitted sweater in blue and white.

Darleks, Cyber men and weeping angles feature alongside snowflakes, stars and a resplendent Tardis. Easily worth £29.99 for dedicated Whovians across the globe.

Now you've no reason to be a Grinch this Christmas!
