Winter is in the air - and that means it’s time for Christmas shopping. And as a reader of The Local, you have an exclusive chance to win a €250 voucher to premier retailer Marks & Spencer to help you fill up those Christmas stockings just right.
M&S is your one-stop shop this year for Christmas cards, festive lights, the perfect dress or suit for New Year's Eve, and presents for the entire family. You can even get help from a pair of friendly fairies to find the perfect gift for each and every one.
But let’s be honest – all we really want is cosy Christmas jumpers, right?
Once upon a time these tacky holiday knits were synonymous with social death, but during the past few years vintage aficionados have taken them back in from the cold. Reindeer with 3D noses, Santa sweaters with built-in belts, and copious amounts of glitter thread are an integral part of the holiday season once again.
We picked out our five favourite jumpers below – one for him, one for her, and novelty knits for the little ones, too.

Don’t limit yourself to Christmas – this fluffy jumper can be worn all year long. Pair it with jeans or pyjama pants to lounge at home, or dress it up with tights and a short skirt for going out. You’ll be walking in your own winter wonderland – a warm and stylish one. And it’s just one of many options.
