IT’S the season – Christmas jumper season, that is.
The novelty knitwear is as much a festive fixture as eating sprouts and watching Elf on repeat.
But there’s no need to splash out on pricey sweaters at a time when you’re trying to tighten the purse strings.
Follow these tips to save on your winter woollies . . .
LOOK SUPER: Don’t just go to high street clothes shops, check out supermarkets and discount stores. Lidl has a limited-edition Christmas jumper for £7.99 landing in stores tomorrow.
And £1 from every purchase will be donated to the NSPCC’s Childline services, so you can look good while doing good.
Poundland also has a great range of Christmas jumpers via Pep&Co with children’s jumpers, including a Rudolph The Reindeer one, starting from just £6. Men’s and women’s start from £8.
CASH BACK: Make some fantastic savings by checking out cashback sites.
I found a great deal at Asos where you can get up to ten per cent cashback on your first purchase. Deal runs until Monday. See topcashback.co.uk/asos.
SAVE: £2 on a £20 jumper
CHARITY TIME: Get a winter knit for a fraction of the price from a local charity shop. I picked up a great snowman sweater for just £5 at a hospice store.
KNIT YOUR OWN: Embrace your inner Tom Daley and make your own jumper. The Olympic diver was spotted knitting as he watched the other competitors this summer.
Pick up a pair of needles at The Range from £1.99 and take advantage of three-for-two deals on wool from Hobbycraft. Pinterest is bursting with free patterns.
SAVE: Around £10-£15
YAPPY CHRISTMAS: If you’re looking to get your four-legged friend in on the action, check out the cute dog jumpers from B&M, including a funky little gingerbread man knit, which is a steal at just £6.
