3 Affordable Ugly Holiday Sweater Ideas of 2019

By Hannah Darrow

It’s that time of the year again! How crazy is it that another year has gone by and it’s time for Christmas? Time is flying! Which means all our favorite traditions are coming back: looking at Christmas lights, making gingerbread houses, eating peppermint everything, and yes, ugly Christmas sweater parties!

This holiday tradition is fun because of the irony. While most people love to dress up around the holidays, ugly sweaters let people be funny and laugh at themselves! It’s a fun tradition with one problem – it can come with a high price tag!

Believe it or not – there are ugly Christmas sweaters out there for up to seventy dollars!

Before you buy one of the expensive, overpriced ones, I wanted to provide you all with a list of stores that give you cheaper options!

1. Target

Target has so many options for ugly sweaters this year! Ranging from classic sweaters to sitcom and movie related ones – it all comes with a price tag of around $29.99! “The Grinch,” and “Elf” themed sweaters are some of the options. If this is not your thing, how about a light up or animal themed one? Target is sure to have one for everyone in the family, at a great price!
