Why A Flannel Robe is the Ultimate Cold Weather Gift

When the temperatures start to drop, it's a clear sign the holiday season is almost upon us. If you're shopping for the perfect gifts this winter for your family or circle of friends, look no further than a flannel robe and other ultra-warm loungewear and pajama sets. Your loved ones will be grateful for the comfort and ease of wearing the softest, most stylish sleep and loungewear as they sip hot cocoa by the fire, unwrap gifts around the tree, or prepare for bed. Flannel robes are warm, cozy and customizable, meaning your gift will be functional, thoughtful, and perfect for the holiday season.

Here are five reasons a flannel robe is the ultimate cold-weather gift:

Ultra-Soft Flannel Fabric

Double-brushed cotton flannel is among the softest materials or fabrics available. The inside of the flannel robe is brushed cotton so it feels soft against your skin underneath, while the outside of the flannel robe is also brushed cotton, making it soft to the touch. The whole thing combines for an extra warm and smooth feeling that you'll love day or night, no matter where you are lounging.

Additionally, some flannel robes also come with Sherpa lining, a thick fleece that makes these robes extra warm on the inside while keeping that soft external layer smooth, snug, and stylish. Whomever you gift a flannel robe will instantly be wooed by the soft and warm feeling upon the first touch, just like a friendly hug.

Cozy & Warm for Lounging & Relaxing

Flannel robes are cozy and warm, but they are also functional and useful for casual lounging around the house on those cooler days when you need a layer against the brisk winter air. Brushed flannel cotton robes provide a lighter layer when paired with matching flannel Christmas pajamas, whereas the thicker Sherpa-lined flannel robes are much warmer and provide a thicker extra layer over sleepwear. Most flannel robes fall just to calf length, meaning they cover most of the body and cocoon your friend or family member in warmth. They also have pockets for storing trinkets or reading glasses when snuggled up with a good book. Kids will love that some flannel robes also come with a hood for extra added warmth around the neck and ears.

Personalization & Monograms for Thoughtful Gifts

Like many other products and gifts on Lands' End, flannel robes can also be personalized with monograms or embroidered names. This is a fun option for an extra thoughtful gift. Monograms come in a variety of colors and scripts or fonts, so you can make your personalization as traditional or modern as you wish. For kids, opt for a fun and casual print of their name using cotton embroidery, making it easy for them to read. This is always a nice option when ordering flannel robes or pajamas for the whole family.

Matching Christmas Pajama Sets and Flannel Robes for the Whole Family

Make a statement this holiday season when gifting sleepwear for the whole family. Matching family Christmas pajamas are sure to evoke some smiles; better yet the family will have fun making memories with photoshoots on Christmas morning. First, choose a pattern for your matching Christmas pajamas. Patterns and designs range from traditional plaid to Christmas tree designs and sketches. Once you've decided on the perfect print, choose coordinating sets for the whole family. Sets come in different varieties, so not everyone has to wear the same pajamas. You can choose from leggings and t-shirts and sleep shirts for kids and toddlers to button-down sets for Mom and Dad. Elevate your sets with matching flannel robes for extra unwrapping on Christmas morning. Worried your loved ones won't be able to tell the difference when twinning? Add personalized monograms to the pajama sets and flannel robes so you can easily differentiate everyone while still making them feel special.

Add Accessories for a Matching Set

There are so many ways for you to add to your flannel robe as a gift set. If gifting a flannel robe by itself feels a little empty, there are many options for additional and relevant items to add. Choose from anything from ultra-soft matching flannel slippers, pajama sets, or pajama pants, or for the fleece fanatic, add in flannel sheets. Now you're giving the gift of comfort! Whether you have a daughter at college in need of a warm and cozy robe for her dorm room or your husband needs new loungewear this winter season, there are so many options to gift warmth over the holidays.
