How to start your own Christmas pajamas tradition

One of the great things about the holidays is the joy of passing down all of the fun traditions you grew up with to your children. Granted, some traditions may require a little more work than you remember – like chopping down your own Christmas tree and making cinnamon rolls from scratch. Fortunately there is at least one holiday tradition you can enjoy sharing with your children that doesn’t involve you breaking into a sweat. This year lean in to comfort and gift your family the sweet holiday tradition of cozy, new Christmas matching pajamas that won’t only keep you warm but will surely warm your heart too.

How the tradition works:

Whether it’s something you grew up doing as a kid or a brand new tradition you want to start with your family, wearing new pajamas Christmas morning is the perfect way to kick off the magic of the day. It may sound hokey but we promise you’ll love getting that early morning pic by the tree of your twinkly-eyed crew in their crisp new Christmas pajamas as they eagerly await the unwrapping of their first present. Plus it’s a great way to keep those pictures of Christmases past organized in that bin of photos you keep meaning to put in scrapbooks (you know, when you have time).

Score some major mom points this season and let your kids open their new kids’ Christmas pajamas Christmas Eve. After all, you want them wearing your handpicked family pajamas for the morning’s pictures but you also don’t want them getting lost amongst the chaos of a Christmas morning wrapping paper tornado. Let your family appreciate the effort you put into picking out the perfect sleep set for each one of them and pass out your gift Christmas Eve when they’ll have time to appreciate all of the thought and love you put into shopping for them. For an added treat wrap their super-comfy PJs with a new book they can enjoy reading in bed that night as they wait for the man in red to show.

To match or not to match?

That is the question, isn’t it? Of course we love matching family pajamas as much as the next mom, but there are going to be years where your family (read: teenagers) just aren’t going to let you get away with it – at least not without a few complaints. If your kids are past the age where they think matching Mom and Dad is fun, then save yourself a headache this Christmas and shop landsend.com for a comfy, cozy pajamas set your independent thinker will love. If matching PJs aren’t in the cards for your holiday photos this year then consider color coordinating your happy family look instead. That way you can relax in a comfy new Supima® cotton nightgown and fleece robe while your hubby and kids kick back in their color coordinated (but not matchy-matchy) flannel pajama pants or graphic fleece pajamas set.

Whatever holiday traditions you hold dear, Lands’ End is here to help you give your family the best Christmas ever. Lean in to comfort this holiday season and shop our selection of family pajamas to help make your picture perfect Christmas dreams come true. Get your Christmas pajamas today.
