'Deadly Christmas Jumpers,' while only in its second year of business, has managed to grace some of Dublin's thoroughfare shopping streets since its opening. Great for the masses of people without suitable themed attire for their office Christmas parties or looking decidedly drab beside the Christmas decorations. 2012's venue is South Anne Street where you'll be able to choose from a selection of jumpers, hoodies and Christmas tees in a variety of colours with plenty of witty slogans paired with nicely designed prints.
The shop is the brainchild of duo Dave and Vinny who thought the usual Christmas garb that gets gifted and re-gifted every year needed a shake-up. Pairing up with a local graphic designer, they now sell to both Ireland and the UK and have branched out to include 'Kris Kindle' gifts for all ages - the perfect solution to last minute office party nightmares.

For tourists however, this is a really nice opportunity to take home some authentically Irish-designed stuff that won't mirror anything you'll find back home. Not only that, but the pricing is incredibly reasonable: t-shirts come in at €15 and jumpers come in at the €40 mark. You'll be hard pressed to find better value and a more fun, festive idea.
