Get into the hideous holiday spirit with these ugly Christmas sweater options. 

While grandparents and teachers have been wearing ugly Christmas sweaters for decades, the red and green monstrosities have become a hipster fad in recent years. You may have even received an invitation to an ugly sweater party (these began gaining popularity in 2001). But as obnoxious holiday sweaters become trendy, many of the styles available are too cute to really be considered ugly. If you’re on the hunt for a truly hideous sweater to wear to your next holiday event, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the ugliest of the ugly sweaters we could find.

Honestly, what is happening on this sweater? Are we really seeing cats in bowties and Santa hats sitting atop slices of pepperoni pizza? What’s not to love? It’s just $27 at Amazon, and there are a variety of other prints to choose from as well.

Why not be literal about what we’re celebrating? Jesus Christ looks ready to party on this sweater, and now, so do you.

Is this unicorn vomiting green glitter, or have I had too much eggnog? Unicorn fans will love the variety of Christmas-themed unicorn print pullovers at Amazon.

Last but not least, this sweater has a little bit of everything that’s considered festive for the season. And like your grandma’s sweater, the ornaments and stockings are applied in the least attractive way possible.
