I think we can all agree there is something sickeningly cute about families all squished together, smiling ear to ear, donning matching holiday sleepwear (ahem, like the photo above). It’s a little cheesy in the best way and an easy tradition for anyone to adopt. Sure, you might have to force your loved ones into them but that’s what the holidays are all about!! Forceful presents and embarrassing photos. Right?
Truthfully, I wasn’t really on board for the matching pj’s thing until a month or so ago. This year, it’s been harder than usual to “get into the spirit” and I admittedly am not a big “Christmas spirit” person in the first place (shame shame I know). But a few weeks ago I felt I needed a little something extra to look forward to and really wanted to create a new tradition with my fiancé and our sweet dog Gus. Lo and behold that little something came in the form of ordering us matching plaid pajamas. I felt so happy clicking purchase and imagining the awkward Christmas photo I will no doubt force us to take. My memory of the year 2020 will for sure be tainted but at least it will also be the start of this cute and slightly embarrassing holiday tradition.
I realize many of you are already on the annual matching holiday pajama train so you’ve likely had yours locked down for months or even years. Ahh, to be prepared. But for anyone on the fence or a little late to the game like me, there is still hope! A lot of big retailers are selling out fast but luckily I discovered some that are still available plus so many Etsy shops that make the cutest most whimsical pajamas, perfect for procrastinators. There’s no time to waste so here goes:
1. Christmas Pyjamas | 2. Family Christmas Pyjamas | 3. Family Christmas Pyjamas | 4. Family Matching Christmas Pajamas Sets | 5. Holiday Plaid Matching Family Pajamas | 6. Christmas, Holiday Couple Pajamas | 7. Moose Print Family Christmas | 8. Personalized Christmas Pajamas | 9. Red and Green Stripe Kids Christmas Pajamas
#3 and #5 are from Hanna Andersson which is an EHD favorite. Emily and her family have worn their pajamas in previous years and they are great quality and have so many adorable patterns and styles. But the best discovery I’ve made is that Etsy is killing the game when it comes to Holiday PJ’s. There are so many good ones and the best part is you can support a small business and shame your family into taking photos in them.
If your family members are less than willing to participate or if you would rather rock yours alone, the individual matching PJ’s sets are just as adorable and fun to pull out during the holidays. Also, how fun would it to order yourself and some friends matching ones and set up a zoom call with wine and holiday movies?? (Okay, maybe not the MOST fun, but the most fun we can have in 2020??). There are so many adorable ones and I personally want every single one.
1. Cozy Henley Sleep Jumpsuit | 2. Heathcliffe Plaid Sherpa Collar PJ Set | 3. Dreamy Henley Pajama Set in String Lights | 4. Scotch Plaid Flannel Pajamas | 5. Dreamy Henley Pajama Set in Candy Cane Stripe | 6. 2 Piece Nightwear Layer Thermal Underwear Set | 7. Vintage Pajama Set in Stewart Tartan | 8. Women’s Winter Trees Cotton Sleep Set | 9. Flannel Pj Set
For a warm yet lightweight fleece option, #2 is so cute, has a classic Christmas plaid pattern, and a cozy sherpa trim. #3, #5, and #8 are cotton henley sets from J Crew that look so comfy and #4 is cozy flannel and could easily be unisex or worn oversized for extra comfort. GIVE ME THEM ALL.
Now I must know, are you as excited about pajamas as I am?? Have you been on this train forever? Where do YOU get your family holiday PJ’s and should we have ones for every holiday?? Tell me everything. xx
