Looking for the best Christmas jumpers for teens in 2021?
If your teen is anything like mine, it can be a challenge to find the right Christmas jumper. You want something festive, and they want something that isn’t (as my 16yo would put it) “totally cringe”.
Fear not. I made a shortlist of what I thought were the best Christmas jumpers for teens currently on sale in the UK, and then I showed it to an actual real-life teen. She told me which jumpers I should immediately strike off my list. Once she’d finished the culling, we were left with this – 10 cute Christmas jumpers available in the UK that your teenager will want to wear.
I’ve included some Christmas sweaters for teenage boys and girls, with a couple of gender neutral options.

10 Best Christmas Jumpers for Teens, 2021
Harry Potter Fair Isle Sweater, Amazon
I’m not sure how or why Harry Potter became so festive but if your teen is a muggle with magical aspirations, this Harry Potter Fair Isle jumper is so cute! I love the officially licensed design that incorporates the Potter scar, glasses and even a Gryffindor scarf. It’s available from Amazon and costs around £40. Buy yours here.
Nightmare Before Christmas Cropped Sweater, Amazon
If your teen has a taste for the gothic and can’t choose whether they love Christmas or Halloween first this is the best Christmas jumper! I love this cute Disney Jack and Sally Christmas jumper. It’s cropped, so it has a fresh, young style, and the design perfectly bridges the Nov-Dec season. It costs just £24.99 and is available here.
Womens Eco Fair Isle Christmas Jumper, Amazon
This traditional style fair isle jumper is the best Christmas jumper for teens who like their clothes to have eco credentials. It’s made using 60% regenerated cotton and 40% recycled bottles (PET), meaning it’s friendly to the planet and looks cute without being too over the top (says my teenager). It costs from £22 and is currently in stock on Amazon.
Hogwarts Christmas Jumper for Teens, Amazon
This jumper is really cute, and great for teens who like their jumpers oversized. It has a really lovely design, and meets that teen requirement for an understated Christmas jumper. but do bear in mind if your skin reacts badly to artificial fibres, it’s made of acrylic, so the magical jumper (which is cotton might be a better option). It costs £43 from Amazon here and is available in sizing up to a 5XL.
Fair Isle Christmas Jumper, Boden
I love the warm colours of this fair isle Christmas jumper from Boden and my teenager says it is “cute”. It’s 4% cashmere, so will give your precious teen a touch of luxe, which makes it one of my favourite Christmas jumpers for teens this year.
The jumper is a retro fair isle style with patterned stripes in warm hues. It’s a wool-synthetic blend so should be very comfortable, and the semi-fitted shape is flattering for girls. It’s machine washable (hurrah!) and costs £90 from Boden.
Christmas Smile Face Jumper, ASOS
At £28 this Christmas jumper from ASOS is affordable, and very teen-friendly. Don’t know about you, but I always get bonus points for buying gifts from ASOS. Younger people will like the drop shoulders and high neck, and it’s currently available in sizes 6-12 on Asos.
Slytherin Christmas Jumper, Amazon
I love this jumper and it makes a change from all the Gryffindor jumpers you’ll see this Christmas. It’s actually available for all the house colours from the Potter series, and they’re officially licensed and lovely quality. Is it officially a Christmas jumper? Maybe not, but I love it anyway. These jumpers cost from £35 and are available in sizes XS to 5XL here.
North Pole Christmas Jumper, Etsy
If you have a teen that’s obsessed with North Face then this Christmas jumper is a cute option for teens. It’s a funny take on the North Face logo with a festive twist. Available in a sweater style at just under £20 from Etsy, it’s a great buy, and you can find it here.
Fair Isle Style Christmas Jumper, Pull & Bear
I know that lots of teens adore Pull & Bear and my teen thought this was one of the best Christmas jumpers for teens and tweens in their selection this year. It’s a subtle fair isle style with a winter colour palette that says, “I’m excited about Christmas but in a cool, low-key way.” And I believe that is perfect for teens. Do remember that clothing at Pull & Bear comes up very small, so do check the sizing chart before you order if you’re not a regular customer. Available here.
Traditional Fair Isle Christmas Jumper, Superdry
This jumper is really soft and cosy, making it one of the best festive jumpers for snuggling into on cold winter evenings. It’s got a regular fit, and gorgeous colours. At £54, it’s not the cheapest Christmas jumper for teens that you’ll find, but they’ll love you for it. Available online at Superdry.
Let’s face it – buying any clothing for teens at Christmas can be a bit of a gamble – but hopefully these jumpers will prove a winner in your house, having already received the teenage seal of approval from my teenager!
