Adorned with some of the bakery's most iconic pastries, it's the perfect thing to wear whilst eating a Christmas dinner. Sausage roll not included, unfortunately.

This graphic PlayStation design celebrates one of the world's greatest consoles – but even without that knowledge, we think it looks pretty cool. Patch embroidery on a 100% knitted jumper makes this incredibly high quality.

10. House of Commons Christmas jumper
