It’s that time of year again, where you throw on your best ugly Xmas sweater and toss back some drinks with your friends and celebrate the holiday season. If you’ve been on this site before, you’ll know I prominently showcase Tipsy Elves sweaters on the homepage as they’re my go-to source for this festive time of year. They always have something great that will surely give your family and friends a great life at this year’s party.
So without further adieu, here are some of the best sweaters I found for your Ugly Christmas Party this year. There’s some real winners in there and I haven’t yet decided what I’m going to show up in.
Best Ugly Xmas Sweaters for 2016
For this first one, I have to start off with an homage to my favorite Christmas movie, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. My family and I make it a point to watch it together every time we get together for the holidays, and it never gets old. This is a good buy for any year. This sweater features everyone’s favorite Cousin Eddie in one of his classic scenes from this treasure of a movie. If you can’t go full Eddie and wear his robe and bomber hat and cigar to your party this year, you can at least sport him on your sweater.
It wouldn’t be a list of the top sweaters for 2016 if I didn’t include something topical from the year, right? Above you’ll see the genius creation of a Ken Bone Christmas sweater and it was glorious. Ken won us all over during the second presidential debate and now he can help you won over some fans at your party this year. How can you top a sweater featuring a picture of a guy wearing a sweater? I love this, it’s near the top of my list!
Staying with current events of 2016, I bring you the R.I.P. Harambe Xmas sweater. It’s the time of year to look back at the year that was and remember those we lost. We lost a good one when poor Harambe was taken far too soon. Goodnight, sweet prince. He is gone but not forgotten. Show your remembrance of this great ape by proudly sporting him at your annual party and you’ll be the talk of the night. I’d proudly hang this gem on the wall in my man cave when I’m not wearing it.
They are really nailing it in capturing the fads of this year. Above you’ll see the iconic Christmas light display as seen on the wall in Stranger Things, the breakout series on Netflix in 2016. Bonus points if you can somehow hook up some real Xmas lights on it and communicate with the rest of your party with it. What message would you send? (I recommend “Shitter’s full” or “Dicks out for Harambe”).
Lastly, I have to work some low brow humor in here. Most of my sweaters of years past have had some vulgarity to them, so this one shown above is another I’m considering for this year. It’s pretty self-explanatory and I love it.
