It's the time of year to bring out the ugly Christmas sweater, and 'Tipsy Elves' has the perfect sweater to blow your holiday budget.

Why does this festive shirt have such a huge price tag? It's made with 24,274 'individually placed' Swarovski crystals.

It also took 52 hours to create.

The iconic piece is considered a collectors item. It will be shipped to the buyer in a luxury box.

Some 'reviewers' made jokes in the comments: "Can someone from Tipsy Elves confirm the size of the shipping box this sweater comes in?"

Don't get too tipsy though in your $30,000 sweater you don't want to ruin the crystals!
