Hear that? It’s the little voice in the back of your head reminding you that Christmas is right around the corner and your holiday to-do list isn’t getting any shorter. Do yourself a favor this holiday season and knock those family Christmas card pictures out early. Check out a few of our best Christmas sweaters for family pictures and get the season off to a merry start.
A mother’s job is never done – especially during the Christmas season when it honestly seems to go into overtime. Lean into your role as “Christmas spirit project manager” and organize a family photo that is so festive it would make an elf question his commitment to the holiday. Start with a favorite cozy knit that speaks to your fun personality, like one of our ultra-smooth and lightweight Women’s Cotton Sweaters. Take extra pride in knowing that the festive design beautifully knit into the fabric will not only make you smile, but it’ll definitely be the thing your kids warmly remember about that super fun photo Mom arranged.
Once you know what you’re wearing for the picture it’s time to make a wardrobe plan for the rest of the family. We suggest avoiding the “matchy-matchy” awkward family photo look of the ’80s and ’90s and instead go with a coordinated color palette for your family’s glamour shot moment. At landsend.com we offer a variety of men’s Christmas sweaters in various styles, patterns, and colors for you to choose from. For a more casual look, you might want to consider a Bedford Rib Sweater. Or you could go with the dressier men’s cashmere sweater over a buttondown shirt for that more refined look.
When you’re in the thick of parenting little kids it seems like they’re going to stay that way forever. Then you blink. Contrary to how it may feel today, that little terror on the playground will soon be parenting a little terror of his own and you’ll have nothing but your sweet memories and these glorious family photos to remind you otherwise. This year, dress your little man in a fun holiday sweater he’ll love wearing like our boy’s sweater with a cute (don’t tell him we said that) graphic. Hey, he’s not going to let you dress him forever. Enjoy letting him look like the kid he is now – so you can appreciate it even more when he’s all grown up.
It’s no secret that little girls love to sparkle. That’s why yours is going to love wearing her new Sophie cardigan. With so many designs to choose from, there is definitely a Sophie perfect for the family picture you have in mind. And you don’t have to worry when she loves it so much she’ll want to wear it all the time. This sweater is so versatile she can wear it with everything from dresses and skorts and jeans and her Iron Knees® leggings. Yeah, we thought of that (because we knew you would too).
