So you've probably got hordes of Christmas jumpers at the back of your wardrobe, all gathering dust after you realised just how ugly they were. But there's one we're betting you don't have, and that's one that matches your pet dog's. Nope, didn't think so.

Aldi has stepped in to fill that void with a new addition to its wonderfully eclectic Special Buys section, with a Christmas jumper range for pet owners and their animals.

The jumpers cost just £3.99 for four-legged customers, £5.99 for children's sizes and £7.99 for adults, meaning you can afford to kit out the entire family. There's a range of designs, too, including a lilac unicorn number and another with a slogan that reads 'Eat, sleep, turkey, repeat'.

Obviously, when they're not actually being modelled by an animal, they look a bit weird. But just think of the possibilities.

On its website, Aldi says: "Despite their natural furry coats, some pets require a little more warmth over winter, whether they're dozing in the house or running about on a brisk walk.

"Our Pet Collection Unicorn Christmas Pet Jumpers are designed to be suitable for both, with three sizes available and a button hole to put the lead through."

The jumpers are now available to buy - in store only - after going on sale at the weekend, and it seems like people are all ready all over them.

Whether you're like, 'Stop the world, I want to get off' or 'ERMAHGERD these are adorable', there's no denying that they're at least fail-safe Secret Santa material. After all, you might know bugger-all about Janet from Finance, but if she's got a dog, she'll tell you.

All pet-owners make a point of being absolutely obsessed with their fluffy pals (hell, I'll tell anyone about my friend's dog, given the chance), so even if you feel truly stumped, now there's at least a solid fallback.

My friend's dog is called Jas, by the way, which is short for Jasmine. She's a mongrel and is 10 years old, and she really loves chicken. Sorrynotsorry.
