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 are as much a part of the tradition as cookie baking and tree trimming. (At my house, anyway!)

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)

From our favorite matching holiday family pajamas to kid-only styles, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite cozy looks this season.

Shop kids’ Christmas pajamas below!


Janie and Jack


Petite Plume Merry Trees 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 button down set with red piping, but there are tons of sweet holiday styles to choose from.

The Children's Place O Christmas Tree Cotton Pajamas

Little Sleepies Holiday Hounds Pajamas

Little Sleepies


Holiday Hounds Pajamas

Combine their two favorite loves: Puppies and presents. Little Sleepies ultra-cozy jammies are a great option for holiday because their clever design means you may get at least couple seasons out of them. 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 Holiday Pajamas

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 and my personal favorite–Heirloom Ornaments.  Good thing mixing and matching is an option because you’re going to have trouble choosing just one.

Prices start at $29
