WATCH | It's officially ugly Christmas sweater season and this year, they are everywhere. 

This year, even A-listers are getting in the game. 

Celebrities like comedian and talk show host, Whoopi Goldberg, and hip-hop artist Nas have their own designs. 

Goldberg's line of limited-edition ugly holiday sweaters went on sale at Lord & Taylor on November 1. They're priced at $139 and are made of alpaca, wool and cashmere. 

And Goldberg's sweaters aren't just for those who celebrate Christmas -- she designed an octopus menorah for those who celebrate Hanukkah. 

“I wanted my love of the holidays to come to life with this ‘ugly’ sweater collection,” Goldberg said. “There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by wearing or giving an ‘ugly’ holiday sweater and spending time with family and friends, which is really what it’s all about.”

Nas and HSTRY also released a line of ugly Christmas sweaters. The rapper's sweater features a kneeling Santa surrounded by raised fists and snowflakes. 

His sweaters are selling for $45 and come in red, green and black. According to HSTRY's website, a portion of the proceeds go to the Center for Court Innovation, which is an initiative that seeks to create a more humane justice system.

But, hey, if you aren't into those mainstream sweaters, UglyChristmasSweater.com just released a new "create-your-own-sweater" tool, which means you can make your holiday sweater as ugly as you'd like. 

Here's how it works: The website has a basic sweater template and you can choose red, blue, green, white or black as your base color. From there, you can choose from a variety of sweater patterns and add your own logo or design. 

But getting everything you ever wanted in an ugly sweater isn't cheap. The customizable sweaters are $99.99 each, but the price drops to $59.99 when you order 30 or more. 

Fred Hajjar, the co-founder of UglyChristmasSweater.com told CNN Money that the company decided to launch the tool to differentiate themselves from department store retailers who have started selling ugly holiday sweaters. 

The new feature has already attracted customers like Uber, Lyft, Spotify and Ellen DeGeneres, CNN Money reported.
