‘Tis the season for ugly and weird Christmas sweaters! They’re funny, tacky, or just the right amount of funky, the things all lists should check. We went from something that grandmas wore or ‘made’ their grandkids wear to something we all hunt for the second the festive season approaches. Scroll, find your favorite, and let us know.
1. Unisex Cow Sweatshirt
Quite a different direction than what you would expect, a cow placed front and center. You get the whole xmas package: white, red, and green color combo, and festive string lights. It’s true to size, weird, and affordable.
2. Golfing Santa Christmas sweater
We like how they went for the whole shebang. Santa is not only playing golf, he’s in a golf attire complete with a tartan hat. Golfing fans or not, this is a true contender for the christmas party or the family dinner.
3. Mike Tyson ugly Christmas sweatshirt
One look and you immediately understand why this is a must buy. And a best seller, at that! Buckle up for people slowly reading “christmith” and then laughing out loud when they get the joke. Made from pre-shrunk 50/50 cotton/polyester blend, this is the sweatshirt to rule all sweatshirts.
4. LED reindeer ugly Christmas sweater
A classic piece, through and through: the led bulbs, the happy-looking rainbow, the tamed, no strings attached design. There’s no dirty joke involved, no mocking, just your classical and weird christmas sweater.
5. Manatee sweater
Available in a blue shade – which is not the usual go-to christmas color – so you know you’ll stand out in a crowd or reds and greens. It’s comfy, warm, and so unexpected. Go for it!
6. Son of a nutcracker sweater
A sweater that is sure to be the center of any party. Buddy for sure will lighten up any Christmas party. The fans of the genre know for sure a gem when they see it, this weather has a ton of positive reviews.
7. Sleigher Santa sweater
Rock it out in a funky sweater in sizes ranging from small to 4XL. You get the Christmas cheer with a pop of rock and roll and a whole lot of boomboxes.
8. Elves crossing sweater
Another goodie for the musical crowd. George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Lennon’s album cover is recreated with these fun elves, a combo no one thought we would need this much. Who knew Abbey Road and candy canes go together so darn well?!
9. Gym rat Santa sweatshirt
Aka no pain, no gain! This one is for all the gym lovers out there and what’s best about it, it also works as a gift: to your PT, gym buddy, whoever likes to put in an hour or two in the gym.
10. Birthday boy party
The sweater that might end up the talk of the party at the end of the day. A funny take on the whole Christmas meaning. Jesus Christ with birthday balloons and a party hat is quite the weird combo, we get it, so buyer beware: this is sure to be a turnoff for some so make sure you wear it with the right crowd.
11. Ripped abs Christmas sweater
The perfect sweater to wear to a cookie baking session. Made from a durable fabric, this might turn out to be a fave and you’ll end up rewearing for the next couple of years. It’s fun and comfortable, the duo you should look for.
12. Festive llama sweater
Well, for some this sweater might be really out there but we kinda put it in the ugly but cute Chridtsmas sweater bin. Made from 100% cotton, this is a crew neck festive sweater that is an appropriate choice for anything from an office party to a wild party with your closest friends.
13. Funny unicorn sweater
Not your grandma’s ugly sweater, more like your grandpa’s weird memorabilia. The wacky print, the rowdy unicorn, the bloody eyes, this is a whole lotta weird. And we love it! Available in small to XXL, this is the kind of sweater that looks even better once you down one or two glasses of eggnog.
14. Christmas long sleeve t-Shirt
There’s a LOT going on here. The motto jacket, the dad sweater, the Christmas themed tattoo sleeve, there’s so much here to gawk over. For us the hairy chest is the winning element, not what you would expect to see at a Christmas party.
15. Reindeer sweatshirt
A reindeer that really knows how to par-tay! You get a colorful design and a comfy sweatshirt, all in one, and a serious bestseller at that, people seem to go crazy over it.
16. Funny Santa sweater
Ahem, this is another weirdo sweater that surprisingly, has an insanely good fit and color combo. Santa on the toilet while reading his newspaper, before or after delivering your present, it’s the right amount of humor for a Christmas sweater.
What happens when you mix some weird Christmas sweaters with some very weird conventions? Hmm, seems like there’s a world of possibilities.

17. Tipsy Santa
We’ll end up on a high with this gem of a sweater. You have LED lights to draw even more attention to your sweater – if this is possible. Chug down a cold one, turn the lights on, and wait for the reactions.
No matter which of these weird Christmas sweaters you choose (or others, many others) you should make a real splash this year when you and your family get together. Let us know what you choose and how it goes and Merry (almost) Christmas!
