Move over, ugly sweaters! Family Christmas pajamas have taken over as the hottest trend for the holiday season. They’re the ideal outfits for adorable family holiday cards, cozy movie nights and Christmas morning photos. Plus, they make great gifts for all ages (yes, even teens)!
And, because of the popularity of family Christmas pajamas, there are now tons of options to choose from. You could go cute and traditional, opt for a pop culture pattern or keep it simple with a matchy-matchy plaid. Whatever you’re looking for, we found the best options for families big and small.
How to Choose the Best Family Christmas Pajamas
Planning a Christmas pajama party? There are, however, a few things to keep in mind when shopping for the best family Christmas pajamas. First, consider breadth of size. Not every pajama-maker makes infant sizes, for instance, so ensure there are size-inclusive options for every family member. Also consider the fabric type. A lighter cotton is best for warm climates (or if your fireplace tends to roar!) while fleecy ones guarantee cozy comfort.
Cost is an important factor as well, which is why we found PJ options at every price point. And, lastly, don’t forget the family pet! No holiday portrait is complete without the fur babies, too.
