Matching family pajamas are a timeless holiday tradition the whole family can enjoy. No matter your age, you can take part in the fun and make family memories you’ll treasure forever… or be forced into them by a far more festive family member. Who doesn’t love unwrapping a cozy new pajama set on Christmas Eve?
To help you nail your Christmas morning photos, we’re offering step-by-step instructions on how to do matching family pajamas.
1. Find the Perfect PJ Sets
First things first, you’ll need to find the perfect set of PJs for everyone to wear. Look for something that’s available in a range of men’s, women’s, and kids’ sizes. For maximum versatility, stick to a classic two-piece pajama set with lounge pants and a tee. Though it may be tempting to choose an overly Christmasy print, you’ll get far more wear out of something non-seasonal. Think stripes or plaid instead of Santas or snowmen.
Might we recommend pairing our irresistibly soft lounge pants with a Skipjack graphic tee in a coordinating shade? While they’re perfect together for a Christmas morning photo op, they can be worn individually long after Christmas ends. Consider them the perfect addition to everyone’s loungewear wardrobe.
2. Select the Right Sizes for Growing Kids
The next key to nailing your matching family pajamas is to make sure you buy everyone the right size. There’s no shame in peeking into everyone’s PJ drawer to double-check their current size before making a purchase.
If your kiddos are in between sizes, it’s always best to size up so they can wear them long after Christmas passes. With graphic tees in kids’, women’s, and men’s sizes XS-XL, we’ve got something for everyone.
3. Don’t Forget Matching Footwear
Take your matching family pajamas to the next level with some cozy socks or slippers. They’ll keep everyone’s feet nice and cozy while adding that little something extra to your family photos. And just like pajamas, socks are a gift that everyone secretly looks forward to getting in their stocking.
Socks are the perfect way to add a Christmasy touch to your matching family pajamas. Instead of sticking with a solid color, go wild with a festive print like our Tis the Ski-Son or Evergreen Holiday Socks. They’re made from premium-quality Peruvian Pima cotton with the perfect balance of softness and stretch.
4. Take Plenty of Family Photos
Last but not least, don’t forget to take plenty of family photos in your matching holiday pajamas. They’re a great addition to any Facebook wall, annual Christmas card, or family photo album. Snap a few while you’re making breakfast, opening your stocking, and unwrapping your gifts. Then, try using your self-timer to snag a festive photo in front of the Christmas tree without needing to leave anyone out.
