Where do these funny Christmas sweaters come from?
My Ugly Christmas Sweater is the place to go to find Christmas Sweaters
My Ugly Christmas Sweater® is a resource in finding the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah sweater for the holiday season. We showcase some of the most creative and unique product suppliers in the industry. There's so many choices for holiday sweaters! Some are funny, some traditional, some naughty, and some just plain adorable.
It's not all about Santa and snowmen anymore (although those themes are still popular!) Funny Christmas sweaters feature all kinds of lovable creatures in festive designs. Like kittens, and sloths, and llamas, and even unicorns.
But you don't have to wear an actual sweater to a sweater party! Now there's a great selection of holiday dresses and skirts, tshirts and sweatshirts. There's an amazing variety of super festive mens Christmas suits and suit jackets. Ties too.
We showcase some companies who make Christmas and Hanukkah shirts that look like sweaters but they're not! Digital photography has really made an impact on the holiday market, and there are some great sweatshirts and tshirts that have photo-real designs that can really trick your eyes into believing they're real!
Ugly Christmas sweater party clothing come in sizes from baby up to men's 5XL, which makes it a great theme for family holiday cards. There's a whole lot of holiday themed dog sweaters too. And accessories. And party supplies. And we help you find it all!
Our website is a one-stop stop to easily find the holiday sweater item you need for yourself or for a gift. If it's a cheap Christmas sweater you are looking for, we've gathered some great options for you. And if you're looking for the WOW factor and want a sweater with real working lights, we'll show you where to get those too.

My Ugly Christmas Sweater - an Entrepreneurial Journey
What's trending? In 2008, My Ugly Christmas Sweater®, Inc. founder Anne Marie Blackman had been a stay-at-home mom for 15 years, and with her children heading to college was looking for a new focus. She began crafting up-cycled ‘ugly’ Christmas sweaters after researching search trends on the internet, looking for a product to sell during the holiday season.
The 'Ugly Christmas Sweater Party' phenomenon was in its infancy stage in 2008, and Anne Marie positioned herself as the 'Queen of Ugly Christmas Sweaters', producing the most interesting and uniquely embellished sweaters on the market.
It all started on eBay
Anne Marie tested the market for her over-the-top sweaters on eBay and found them to be instant sellouts. She created the www.MyUglyChristmasSweater.com website to drive traffic to her eBay store. My Ugly Christmas Sweater, Inc. was incorporated in 2010 (My Ugly Christmas Sweater®), and in 2010 twice their products had eBay’s ‘top shared’ items on Facebook.
A thriving eCommerce website is born
With 75% of her eBay traffic coming from her own website, she left eBay in 2011, and redesigned the My Ugly Christmas Sweater website to showcase her unique products and sell directly to her customers. The My Ugly Christmas Sweater, Inc. website received tremendous online traffic during the 2013 holiday season, with millions of visitors to the site. The over-the-top sweater and dress collections were wildly sought after.
Our sweaters are featured in the 2012 book "Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater", available from all major bookstores.
Branding and the media
Company founder Anne Marie Blackman received extensive press coverage with growing interest in both the My Ugly Christmas Sweater products as well as the entrepreneurial story behind the business. She has appeared on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, Good Morning America, CNN Headline News and The World News. Her products were featured on The Ellen Show and worn by numerous celebrities. Articles about Anne Marie and My Ugly Christmas Sweater® have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The LA Times, Bloomberg, Inc., Time, and hundreds of news articles worldwide.
