It’s hard to say when it started, but there’s no denying that holiday pajamas are a thing. Colorful, cozy and perfect for gifting, kids’ Christmas pajamas have become as much a part of the tradition as cookie baking and tree trimming.

Each year we pick out a pair for each kiddo and wrap them up to open on Christmas eve. Not only does it scratch that itch of opening something early but when they wake you up at 4:30am to open gifts, they’re already photo ready. (You, not so much probably. #sendcoffee)

We’ve rounded up some of our absolute favorites in a variety of holiday (and holiday-adjacent) prints which are all super cozy and 100% worthy of being worn allllll day long.

Shop kids’ Christmas pajamas below!

Janie & Jack Classic Goodnight Pajamas

Janie and Jack

Classic Goodnight Pajama Set


The cozy and classic jammies from Janie and Jack are made from a cotton blend that gets better with each wear. And good thing, since they’ll never want to take them off. We love the Clark W. Griswold vibes of this plaid button down set, but there are tons of sweet holiday styles to choose from.

Give us all the holiday treats! From hot cocoa to gingerbread houses, this print highlights the best things about the season.

Their super stretchy fabric is designed to grow with your little one and last three times longer than traditional jammies! They’ve got styles for kids and adults in a host of other holiday prints too.

Hanna Andersson Modern Merry Matching Family Pajamas

Hanna Andersson

Matching Family Holiday Collections


Iconic brand Hanna Andersson pretty much wrote the book on matching family PJs, and we could not love them more. There are so many Insta-worthy styles to choose from, including not one but two Grinch theme patterns, Hanukkah prints and my personal favorite–the Scandinavian-inspired Modern Merry print.  Good thing mixing and matching is an option because you’re going to have trouble choosing just one.
