How to Find the Right Matching Christmas Pajamas for Your Family

Finding the right matching Christmas pajamas for you and your family can help everyone embrace the joy of the season. From fun prints to a flattering mix of plaids and solids, there are styles for every family to choose from this holiday.

Find the Perfect Christmas Pajama Colors

There are tons of options when it comes to matching family Christmas pajamas. While classic shades of reds and greens are popular, the color choices are virtually limitless. Choose from upbeat, fun colors to more subtle neutral shades. Some families opt for brighter colors like pinks and greens, while others choose to go more classic with a red or green plaid. If you have young children, a more cheerful color might be your go-to choice. If your kids are older, they might lean toward something darker or more understated. Think about what colors will match the Christmas decor if you plan on taking family photos wearing pajamas.

Consider Your Print or Pattern Options

Solid colors are a simple yet sleek look for family pajamas, not to mention classic. Prints and patterns are a fun alternative. There are lots of different Christmas print options, including Christmas trees, Christmas animals, country Christmas scenes, Christmas campers, patterns with skis or winter activities, reindeer, Christmas lights, stripes, florals and much more. Prints run the gamut from cartoon inspirations to stylish plaids. Families can also pair solid color tops with printed pajama pants for another look.

Deciding on the Right Type of Matching Pajamas

Not sure what to buy? Here are some ideas! Matching nightgowns are an adorable option for moms and daughters. Classic button-down pajama tops and matching bottoms are perfect for the whole family, as are solid color tops and matching pajama pants. If your family isn’t sold on the idea of matching pajamas, another option is to have matching robes and slippers. Considering how much to match also comes into play when deciding on the types of pajamas to buy, too. For example, families with both boys and girls may decide to have the girls’ pajamas match in one type (like a nightgown), and the boys in a different type with matching pajama pants or shorts. Or, maybe the whole family has the same pajama pants, but the girls and boys wear different tops. If you prefer to match completely, pajama pants and a long-sleeved button-down, henley or knit pajama tops are ideal.

Finding the Best Comfy, Cozy Pajama Fabrics

Families want to be warm, cozy and comfortable in their matching PJs, so choosing a great fabric is another aspect to think about when shopping. Popular winter fabrics include flannel pajamas, fleece, ringspun or Supima cotton, and cotton blends or knit fabrics. Look for quality materials designed for a cozy feel. For tops other than flannel, consider styles that have some percentage of spandex or other material that has a little bit of stretch or give for a flattering look and a comfortable feel.

Look at the Size Ranges and Charts

People come in every shape and size, so when it comes to finding matching pajamas to wear for the holidays, families want to look for lines that have plenty of size options for adults and kids’. Many Christmas pajamas come in a wide range of sizes, from baby and toddler sizes for the youngest kids up to size 20 for older children. For women’s pajamas, sizes can range from XXS to 3X plus, so there’s a great look for women of all body types. Similarly for guys, sizes range from XS to XXL and big and tall styles, so guys can look great in their PJs all holiday season, too. Make sure to check size charts to get the correct fit. Reviews that note whether a particular style runs a bit large or small can be helpful as well.

Add the Extras to Complete the Christmas Fun!

After deciding on the right pajamas for you and your family to wear this Christmas, it’s time to add the extras that will make the holiday even more cozy, special and fun. Look for matching robes the family can don on Christmas morning, and matching slippers to keep everyone’s toes toasty on Christmas Eve. Add in matching fleece throws for every member of the family to cuddle up on the couch. Don’t forget the pets, either! Fido or Fluffy wants to be part of the family fun, too, so get a matching bandana for the cute and cuddly members of the family.
