This is a Thing: A $30,000 Ugly Christmas Sweater

Do you have an ugly holiday sweater party coming up and an extra $30,000 lying around? Well good news, there's a sweater that's just perfect for you!

The good people (elves?) over at Tipsy Elves know their ugly Christmas sweaters so they teamed up with Swarovski, who know their expensive sparkly crystals, to make the "World's Most Expensive Ugly Christmas Sweater".

According to the listing the $30,000 sweater is "made with 24,274 individually placed Swarovski crystals and took 52 hours to create." And you totally need it.

The one-of-a-kind Crystal Kringle sweater features a blinged out Santa riding an equally blingy unicorn through a blingy spacescape. If you're thinking, 'wait, I don't remember that Christmas story' then you probably can't afford the sweater. People with enough money to spend $30,000 on a sweater all hear the real story of Christmas as children, which of course features a spaceman Santa with a unicorn.

"Make history by purchasing this once in a lifetime collector's item, and become the owner of this record setting sweater," Tipsy Elves writes adding that the sweater ships inside a "luxury frame". Though I'm unsure why a frame would be necessary as you'll be wearing the sweater 24/7 as it will likely be the only thing protecting you from the elements as you will no longer be able to afford your rent/mortgage.

But you'll look great and that's what Christmas is all about!

Or, maybe buy the non-Swarovski crystal covered version for $75.
