The season for Christmas sweaters is finally here, and kids want to be a part of the fun! Christmas sweaters may get a bad rep when it comes to “Ugly Christmas Sweater” parties, but when it comes to kids sweaters even the silliest designs are just plain cute. You can find kids sweaters in all different styles, from boys to girls or unisex, knit sweaters or printed hoodies, in classic designs or branded items like Charlie Brown or Star Wars. And of course, there are also adorable Hannukah sweaters as well. Holiday sweaters are a great way to spread the cheer during this special time of year.
In this list we have our favorite kids sweaters for the holiday season. They each come in either big kid sizes, little kid sized, toddler sizes or a combination. The description will tell you which sizes are available to make it easy for you to choose the right sweater for your little ones.
