Super Mario Bros Sweater

Where: Merchoid

Price: $44.99 (£31.99)

8-bit Mario was clearly always meant to be knitted, he fits perfectly on this retro-inspired sweater. This is a definite buy for any Nintendo fan out there. Whilst very minimal the inclusion of snowflakes in between Mario's coins is a nice touch.

Pokemon

Where: Teefury

Price: $25

If you're a Pokefan then you can pick from water, fire, grass or electric and they're all equally adorable sweaters. Featuring some popular favourites from the original era, you will definitely stand out at your Christmas parties! An ideal gift for anyone looking to catch em' all!

PlayStation Sweater

Where: Zavvi

Price: $53.88 (£34.99)

This one is one of my favorites, there's a lot of detail that has gone into the design. The controller icons on the bottom, the start and select buttons in the middle and the d-pad buttons along the top will ensure you'll stand out in the crowd. The icing on the cake is that old-school PlayStation logo in the middle!

Sonic The Hedgehog

Where: Technopieces

Price: $52.99 (£35.08)

Forget your Sonic: Lost Worlds, Sonic Boom, or any other 3D outing the blue hedgehog has had in recent years; this jumper highlights the joyful '90s 2D Sonic. A lot of people consider him the best of the bunch so you can't really go wrong with this one, the colors fit the festive season perfectly too!

Street Fighter

Where: IWOOT

Price: $53.88 (£34.99)

Street Fighter is one of those old arcade titles that made its way successfully over to consoles. Street Fighter V is on the horizon for 2016 so what better way to celebrate the excitement of Christmas with two of your favourite characters. There are a couple out there with other members of the Street Fighter family so you're not limited to just Guile and Cammy.

Assassins Creed Syndicate

Where: Yellowbulldog

Price: £38.99

This sweater features a very iconic landmark from the UK, as well as the popular logo for the Assassins Creed series. It's also the official sweater for the newest entry, Syndicate. The pricing is shown as GBP as the website charges just £4 for worldwide delivery. 

Fallout 4

Where: Funstock

Price: $52.89 (34.99)

With the release of Fallout 4 this week, this is the official VAULT-TEC sweater for the holiday season. It is the perfect time to wear it, now you can be a member of Vault 111 with the official colours and emblazoned on the back are the numbers '111'.
