From Declan McKenna's jumper to Daft Punk's snow globes: 10 of the best festive gifts to buy (yourself) this Xmas
It's that time of year again. While we're all shovelling Quality Street into our mouths quicker than we can unwrap them, bands are hard at work bringing us festive holiday merchandise. Everyone from Beyonce to N-Sync are taking part in the holiday season this year - and some of our indie faves, too.

The Cribs Christmas jumper



Well, if you’re going to hold a holiday gig bonanza called Cribsmas, you best back it up with a festive sweater. Priced at £25, it comes in green, red and black.

Buy it here.

Slaves… everything?



Our favourite Kent duo have got us all sorted this Christmas. Not only have they got a shirt (£15) and sweater (£30), but there’s also Slaves wrapping paper (£6) and Christmas cards (£10). If that wasn’t enough, there are fingerless gloves (£10) so you can keep warm, too.

Buy them here.

Daft Punk snow globe



We all love decorating at Christmas, so why not get festive with the help of Daft Punk - this fetching snow globe ($50) is more than enough to get you in the mood.

Buy it here.

Declan McKenna Christmas jumper



We’ve never been as glad for puns as we are right now. Deccers is going all out this Crimbo by releasing a festive jumper (£30), with his face front and centre along with the tagline “Dec The Halls”.

Buy it here.

Liam Gallagher bobble hat



This isn’t strictly Christmas themed, but it’s bloody cold outside - so what better to adorn your head with than this gobby bobble hat (£29.99). As you were.

Buy it here.

Wayne Coyne wrapping paper



As the big day creeps ever closer, it’s time to start wrapping those presents you’ve definitely bought already. Grab some of this Wayne Coyne designed wrapping paper ($20) which provides employment to the homeless people of Oklahoma City.

Buy it here.

The National wool scarf



In the spirit of keeping things warm and wintery, this National scarf (£24.40) is sure to keep the cold out. Adorned with festive lettering, it’s perfect for traipsing across town between shows this winter.

Buy it here.

Foo Fighters Christmas tree ornament set



Leave it Dave Grohl and co. to help decorate your tree with some Foo-stive cheer (sorry, not sorry). This set of four baubles (£39.99) are ready to be draped in garish amounts of tinsel while the cat tries to de-throne them from the tree.

Buy it here.

Blossoms knitted jumper



You can never have too many jumpers. Probably not hand knitted by Tom Ogden himself, this one from Blossoms (£40) has still got that homemade look about it so you could try and pass it off as your own work if you wanted.

Buy it here.

Oh, and The Super Awesome Dork Indie Colouring Book, Vol. 1



There’s only so much TV you can watch at Christmas, right? When it’s all a bit too much have some colouring fun with our very own colouring book - from Pale Waves to Bastille, all our faves are ready for you to let your inner Picasso off his leash.

Buy it here.
