Pillsbury's Ugly Sweater Line Is What Your Entire Family Needs This Holiday Season

From what I've seen, there are two different kinds of family Christmas cards during the holiday season. Some are elegant and highly coordinated, while others feature the entire family wearing ugly Christmas sweaters to make for a super fun and festive pic. If your fam's holiday cards happen to be more like the latter, though, Pillsbury's ugly sweater line is what your entire crew needs this holiday season. I know mine does.

TBH, I always thought I knew how to throw the perfect holiday rager, but if anyone knows how to celebrate the holiday season, it's definitely Pillsbury. On Wednesday, Dec. 5, the company known for its buttery crescent rolls and pre-made cookie dough will be giving away a limited number of free Doughboy Ugly Christmas sweaters through online sweepstakes until Thursday, Dec. 6, according to a company press release. As long as you're a U.S. resident, you can simply enter to win one by visiting the website's Bake Memories page. If you aren't one of the many winners announced on Dec. 6, have no fear — you can also snag a free one from the Ugly Christmas Sweater website's Pillsbury page. Just fill in your information and size, and you'll receive your free sweater. There's a limit of one per customer, and you'll you have to pay shipping and handling. You'll either receive the "Let It Dough" or the "It's Lit" sweater, so get ready for the best kind of celebration.

The "Let It Dough" sweater is winter-themed and features the Doughboy, who is completely surrounded by crescent rolls. It dons the pun "Let It Dough," and let me tell you — it'll have your friends and family feeling jolly as heck.

Pillsbury's "It's Lit" sweater also features the classic Doughboy, who is posing merrily in front of a Christmas tree and presents. I don't know about you, but nothing gets me in the holiday spirit more than the dough boy, trees, and obviously, baked goods.

Once you win the sweepstakes for a friend and claim one for yourself, make sure to “don your Doughboy apparel” at each and every Christmas party, Hanukkah soiree, and Kwanzaa celebration. Plus, make sure to wear it loud and proud on on National Ugly Sweater Day, which falls on Friday, Dec. 21. When you do, per the release, share it to your social media pages and include #Pillsbury.

In the press release, Cassi Dermody, Marketing Communications Manager for Pillsbury, said the company feel customers tend to incorporate the company's products into their traditions, and since ugly sweaters are a pivotal part of the holidays, Pillsbury wanted the classic Doughboy to get in on it.

In the press release, Dermody said:

We love hearing stories from our consumers, telling us how Pillsbury products are always part of their Christmas memories and traditions. Ugly Christmas sweaters have become a new tradition in recent years. As people celebrate Christmas, we wanted our Doughboy to join in on the fun.

If you're looking for sneakers to match your Ugly Christmas Doughboy sweater, take a look at Brooks' Ugly Sweater running sneakers. They're one-of-a-kind, and will definitely get your tootsies into the holiday spirit.

IMO, there's nothing like celebrating the holidays with endless amounts of baked goods and ugly sweaters... so it looks like Pillsbury has me covered this Christmas season. Make sure to enter both the sweepstakes and claim a sweater for yourself and a friend, because there's nothing better than spreading Christmas cheer. Merry Dough-mas to all, and to all a good night.
