With Christmas Jumper Day fast approaching, everyone’s on the hunt for the perfect Christmas jumper. A lovely blogger friend of mine posted this photo on Facebook and said she’d found a jumper that was so bad, she loved it….
And finding a really bad taste jumper (although I have to admit, I kind of love this baby reindeer design…) is all part of the fun, but I’ve discovered a PROPERLY COOL Christmas jumper for kids. It’s so cool, it was in Stylist magazine’s Christmas gift list.
People, I give you… the Nadia Shireen for Tootsa Macginty Xmas Jumper. Isn’t it fab?
Featuring a partying penguin, complete with party hat and horn, it’s made from machine washable, non-itch wool/cashmere and has buttons on one shoulder for easy access and exit. So who is Nadia Shireen? Well, apart from being a lovely lady that I used to work with back in the day, when we both worked on teen magazines, Nadia is the author and illustrator of some kick-ass kids’ books. Both Good Little Wolf and Hey, Presto! are firm favourites in the Perry household, and if you haven’t got them, pop them on your child’s Christmas list.
Nadia has designed this jumper for Tootsa Macginty and 100% of the profits from the sale of the jumper go to Refuge – a hugely important charity that supports thousands of women and children escape from domestic violence and rebuild their lives.
The jumper not only helps women and children in need, but it will raise a few smiles too – who can’t love that partying penguin?
So buy your Nadia Shireen for Tootsa Macginty jumper here and wear it on Christmas Jumper Day on 12th December. You’ll get a double warm charity glow in your heart.
Thanks to Tootsa Macginty for sending me this jumper – I’ve made a donation to Refuge as a thank you.
