We haven’t got long until the annual Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save This Children.

It’s a day when people across the UK don their funniest, ugliest or chicest Christmas jumpers in aid of a great charity. This year’s date falls on 13 December.

Knowing that the majority of people will be scraping around last minute to find some festive knitwear, NotJust has partnered with Save The Children to release a range of limited edition Christmas jumpers.

These aren’t just any Christmas jumpers, by the way. Their pop culture references are on point, ranging from a Love Island themed jumper to a knit with David Attenborough’s face on it.

At least £5 from every jumper will go to one of NotJust’s charity partners, which includes Save The Children.

NotJust - who brought us the hilarious Brexit or not to Brexit jumpers earlier this year has pledged £50,000 to Save The Children this year.

It’s not just the charitable nature of the brand that has caught our attention, it’s also the hilarious £39.99 jumpers on offer.

Take the Flea-bahum-bag jumper for example. Anything with Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s face and miniature cans of gin and tonic knitted on, is fine by us.

If you’re not a fan of Fleabag, you might prefer to enjoy your Christmas drinks with David Attenborough or Louis Theroux.

The aptly named Attenbrrr jumpers come complete with David Attenborough holding a robin on the front and the planet on the back with the slogan “stay cool”.

If Theroux is more your thing, you can have Louis Theroux in a santa’s hat on the front and the slogan “All I want for Christmas is Theroux” on the back, which we’re sure you’ll agree is comedy genius.

Love Island fans will rejoice at the fact that Love Island is coming back in January. That’s one way to cure the back-to-work blues. What’s even better is that they can watch the new series in the Tis What It Tis The Season To Be Jolly jumper.

Yes it’s festive, yes it’s probably only appropriate until the Christmas tree goes back up in the loft but when it comes to Christmas, rules are there to be broken.

There are 12 Save The Children jumpers to choose from in total, which also include a Peaky Blinders suit, an England cricket jumper and a Strictly Come Dancing knit.

There’s also a range of other jumpers available (like this rather hilarious Gregg’s one) that allow you to pick which charity you’d like to donate to.

Each jumper is made in the UK. The product pages tell us they don’t “discolour, itch or deform”. It’s also a breathable material with “room to grow” at Christmas (their words, not ours) which is good news all round.

Each jumper is limited edition, with 500 made in each style so far, so if you would like to get your hands on one ahead of Christmas Jumper Day, you better act fast.
