Naughty or Nice

Even if he isn't on Santa's naughty list, this ugly Christmas sweater is sure to get a few laughs. Another reindeer-inspired design, this sweater poses a lot more attitude than the pom-pom Rudolph sweater above, making it the ideal gift for the sassy kiddo on your list. It's also available in three other prints (including a rapping Santa Clause), but the Rudolph mugshot is definitely our favorite.
