Not sure where to start? We've done the hard work for you. Here are the best Christmas jumpers - and with options to suit all budgets. You may even be tempted to get more than one...
Best Christmas jumpers for women
1. Monki Nordic Ski Knit
Monki's top is a little less obvious than the usual Christmas jumper fare, which makes it the perfect way to get involved without stepping foot into Bridget Jones territory.
2. George Navy Penguin Noel Slogan Christmas Sweatshirt
This sequined jumper with lazy-looking penguins lying around is a steal at under £15. With it being navy rather than a garish colour, you can dip your toe into the jumper trend without going whole hog.
3. Dorothy Perkins Women's Blue Polar Bear Xmas Tree Jumper
We love polar bears. We love polar bears on a Christmas jumper. We love Christmas too. So naturally we love this jumper.

If you’re looking for something you’ll love and cherish for years to come, this alpaca wool jumper is sure to do the trick. The fair isle pattern means it will fit right in during the Christmas season, whilst still looking fashionable at other times of year.
