John Lewis Yumi Christmas Jumpers, £50
At £50, these jumpers are a bit more of a commitment – and rightly so, as they're so beautifully adorned you'll never want to take yours off. Yumi's designs offer something a little different to the norm (the cute avocados are a particularly sweet option), meaning you won't be rocking the same reindeer and Christmas puddings as everyone else this year.
