Tis fast approaching the season to sit in front of your computer on a video call wearing nothing except a Christmas Jumper. You might not be commuting to work as much these days, but there’s still no excuse not to terrify your work colleagues with your taste in garish clothing over the next couple of months.
The Christmas Jumper is increasingly a staple product of the museum shop, so a look around finds the following “delights” for you from London venues.
Very topical for the science museum with the elemental symbols in the centre, test tubes and molecule shaped snow flakes.
Available in five sizes for £40

A bright red jumper with a gift-wrapped TARDIS on the front and a label saying Merry Xmas to you from The Doctor.
