Decode his festive winter woolly with our fun guide to what his choice of Christmas jumper really says about him.
The funny Christmas image jumper
He’s fun, confident, and ready to embrace the festive season in all its novelty glory. Expect a showering of gifts because this guy’s well and truly in the spirit. Be warned though, this snowman-emblazoned cheeky chappy is also most likely to wrap up a piece of coal for a laugh – all in the name of festive fun, of course.The Christmas tree/snowflake motif jumper
This man longs for snowy days and can’t wait to get out there and make the most of the season. Expect sledging, snowball fights and generally embracing frost-spangled nature with plenty of long bracing walks. He’s grounded and interested in the environment, so if you’re spending the big day together, get ready to recycle that Christmas wrapping. The discreetly-patterned jumper
While this man is happy to get into the spirit of winter by investing in a classic Christmassy print, he’s keen to stay stylish rather than give in to the joys of the kitsch motif. Don’t judge him for not going all-out, though: he’ll still be able to wear his sweater well into the New Year, while Mr Reindeer Motif will have to hang up his investment almost as soon as the Queen finishes her speech. With his forward-thinking nature in mind, expect practical gifts from this sensible fellow.The Christmas jumper dodger
If he point-blank refuses to get involved in the annual festive knitwear uprising, he could be a bit of a Scrooge. Before you run for the hills, try to understand his reasons and you may be able to help him: if he doesn’t want to waste money, explain that men’s Christmas jumpers needn’t be expensive (here’s proof, if you need it). If he’s too shy to embrace that fun Santa print, you could try buying him a subtle, Christmassy-pattered jumper. Fair Isle print is perfect. If he actually believes he doesn’t like Christmas, stay calm – you can introduce him to the anti-Christmas jumpers out there: think ‘Bah Humbug’ motifs to appeal to his unfestive attitude.
