Ok, when I first saw this sweater I thought “What has this world come to…” But then I realized this is the ugly Christmas sweater I’ve been waiting for. Seriously, I’ve never been big into those ugly sweater contests, but this is just awesome. Using your phone, you can place a fire in the center of the fireplace embroidered on this ugly Christmas sweater. With pricing ranging from $42-$91 on Amazon, this ugly sweater isn’t the most affordable one out there, but I thought you should know about it regardless. Shipping varies by size but is either free or around $12.

If you’ve got that ugly sweater contest to go to, seriously, pick this up. Whether you win or not, everyone will wonder how the fireplace is actually “burning” in the center. And with a quick double-tap, you can turn the fire off (and back on again).

What to expect:

  • The Crackling Fireplace Christmas Sweater will help warm your hands on those cold winter days
  • 3 simple steps to bring the sweater to life: 1) Download the free app 2) Insert your smartphone running the Crackling Fireplace animation 3) The sweater is alive. Double tap the animation to switch it on and off
