Kit your children out with a little festive cheer with our edit of the best Christmas jumpers for kids.

Yes, it's almost that time of year again when we reach to the back of our kid's wardrobes to find their favourite Christmas wear for the upcoming festivities. And it's safe to say no child can survive the season without a festive knit or two, thanks to the parties, school discos and other festive events on the horizon.

More than likely your kids have outgrown last year's festive attire - meaning you're on the hunt for a new knit for them to take a twirl in. And we've got you covered with our round-up of the best Christmas jumpers for kids from high-street favourites like Next, H&M, M&S and more. Plus of course the much-coveted John Lewis Christmas jumper (opens in new tab). Much like Christmas pyjamas for kids (opens in new tab), the demand and diversity of jumpers have quadrupled in recent years. Much like the best Christmas jumpers for adults (opens in new tab).
