Geek Chic: Ugly Christmas Sweater Edition

By Jen P

Yeah, I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. And no, I’m not one of those Christmas-season-begins-the-day-after-Halloween crazies. But I am a realist; and there’s a tiny window before the crazies descend upon the good merch and clear it out. (I’m speaking from experience. I waited until the last minute last year and had to settle for a Target Star Wars sweater when I really wanted a suit covered in leg lamps.) So if you want to impress at this years office Christmas party, read on and buy some of this epic stock before December first. You can thank me later. 


Target: Prices from $30 to $40

Target has a varied selection this year, with these being some of the finest. Find the Magical Unicorn here, Light-up Vader here, and the Stranger Things Flip Sequins sweater here.


Amazon: Prices at $45 for the featured sweaters and $55 for the suit jacket

Depending on your fandom and personal style, Amazon has you covered. Find the Hogwarts Express sweater here, the PlayStation sweater here, Wonder Woman here, Thor here, and Christmas Vacation here.


ThinkGeek: Prices from $30 to $35 (pictured)

If you’re looking for something in a slightly more obscure or retro fandom, ThinkGeek has a nice variety. Check out this Bob’s Burgers sweater here, Space Invaders here, Legend of Zelda here, and Firefly here.


Merchoid: Prices from $55 to $60 (pictured)

My two, personal honorable mentions this year are among these four. Can you guess which? Find the Black Panther sweater here, Jurassic park here, Beauty and the Beast here, and Adventure time here. But hurry! These are selling out fast.


BoxLunch: Priced around $60

And BoxLunch has my top pick: Kingdom Hearts!!! The coolest thing about this site is that for every $10 you spend, they donate a meal to a person in need. After all, it is the season of giving! So, find your Kingdom Hearts sweater here, Rick and Morty here, and Friends here. Also, don’t forget that Kingdom Hearts III releases January 29th!!!

It won’t be here in time for Christmas, but I’m Christmas-morning psyched all the same.


What are you looking forward to this holiday season, and what’s your favorite ugly sweater? Let me know in the comments!

And Happy Thanksgiving, Geeks!

  1. Truth be told some of the “ugly” sweaters you show are pretty cool. I mean I know that they are meant to be ugly Christmas sweaters but dang, that Hogwarts and Darth Vader are the bomb! I would so wear one of those. I don’t have an ugly Christmas sweater due to the fact that one) I live in Texas and two) I live in far Southwest Texas and wearing a sweater would pretty much be unbearable in the nice cool 74 degree weather we experience during December here in El Paso. But thanks for the ideas! 🙂
