There are some things that just bring you joy during the holidays: family, friends, and of course, ugly Christmas sweaters.

Ugly sweaters are all about the shock-factor: How ugly can one sweater actually get? The answer: pretty ugly. Moving parts, working lights, clever sayings—pick the right sweater and you're sure to stand out at your next party.

And one company has taken it to a whole new level. Introducing the Tipsy Elves Swarovski Crystal Ugly Christmas Sweater, on sale for a mere $30,000.

While it may not be the ugliest Christmas sweater you’ve ever seen, it’s certainly the most expensive.

From the whimsical Santa riding a unicorn in space to the blinding sparkle, this sweater is the definition of over-the-top. It’s decorated with 24,274 crystals, and took the Swarovski “crystal ninja” (their term, not ours) 52 hours to make.

Whether you’re looking to shock your coworkers, or give your family something other than your dating life to talk about at the dinner table, this outrageous apparel delivers.

And if this particular sweater is giving you sticker shock, you can find a tamer Swarovski crystal sweater for $139.
