Streetfighter Ken v Ryu Christmas jumper: £32.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Hadouken! Is there a Christmas version of that ol' classic Street Fighter catchphrase? Probably not. I'll go with 'turducken!' anyway, seeing as I can sort-of visualise Ken shouting it over the dinner table. This burgandy number could be yours, although only in M and XXL sizes at the time of writing...
