Christmas Thread- Last year, Christmas Jumpers and Christmas Bedding were essential.

(8 Posts)

Will they be this year?

I have some fleece blankets for the DC (bought over 10 years ago) but I Might retire them and buy them proper bedding sets.
DH and I got the Nordic grey cotton duvet cover and Primark flannel reindeer sheets grin

But I need a tacky novelty jumper don't I?
I have a black/gold quite classy one (well as classy as a Christmas Jumper can be)
I have seen a few on eBay...................................................



Unless, is there something new and must have for this year?
Not those ribby festive print leggings from Primark though. My DD had those, she's a size 6 , I'll leave them to her. wink

I shall be shortly purchasing jolly christmas jumpers for myself and my husband from the bay. I think they're here to stay for a while.

I'm hoping the Nordic theme will stay around, I really liked it,

I'd find bedding and a once-a-year jumper a stretch too far, but I do like photos of the dc in slightly festive, snuggly pyjamas as chaos ensues on Christmas morning.

My Nordic bedding ( grey cotton/poly with a pattern) from eBay and the white flannel sheets/pillowcases with tiny navy reindeer from Primark- were kept on my bed all winter (they were washed regularly grin ) and will be out again in December.
So well worth it IMO wink

The DC Christmas fleeces were bought when they had single beds, so too small now. I bought some of the Dunelm Mill fleeces and cushions last year for the sofa.

My black/gold jumper is at least 5 years old so I've had good use from it, but I need a novelty one.
Recalling last year when they were in all the shops from November. DS refused to have one .....until three days before end of term when he declared the School had decided on Jumper Day. So of course, there were none in the shops but I got him a really nice cotton one from the market, which DD now wants to purloin .

I missed out on the Christmas jumper trend last year, need to get myself one in November this year.

Do they sell them in places like Asda, Primark etc...?

They had loads in primark last year. I jumped the gun and bought one really early then regretted it when other shops bought nicer ones out.

Don't leave it too late to buy though, my sister ended up buying a ludicrously expensive one in mid december because all the less hideous nice reasonably priced ones were gone.
