If part of your holiday tradition is matching family holiday pajamas, now’s the time to shop! In the past, you might have coasted into November before picking out your pj’s, but don’t make that mistake this year.

Unfortunately, supply chain issues, labor shortages, and shipping delays are all expected to impact the 2021 holiday season. While that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get your holiday pajamas, it’s probably a good idea to order them ASAP before they’re on back order or out of stock.

To help you do just that, we’ve rounded up eight pairs of holiday pajamas perfect for your family, roommates, and even your pets. Whether you’ll soon be taking Christmas card photos, need some new pj’s now, or just plan to gift some this year, here are some great options to consider.

Happy Holidays! This article is part of our Holiday 2021 Gift Guide where you can find the best-of-the-best recommendations from LifeSavvy, How-To Geek, and Review Geek to help you pick the perfect gift for everyone on your list!

Classic Plaid

Sometimes, classic is the way to go. This set of red buffalo plaid is festive, but you won’t have to stop wearing them once the holidays end. They come in a variety of styles, too. You can opt for a set or just the pants to mix and match with other festive shirts.

Plus, because these are flannel, they’ll definitely keep you warm this winter. Altogether, this set is ultra-versatile and perfect for every member of the family.

Hanukkah Pajamas

While Christmas pajamas get all the attention around this time of year, it’s not the only holiday. Those who celebrate Hanukkah can also snag some cute matching family pajamas.

This set from Hanna Andersson is available for men, women, children, babies, and even pets. The organic cotton that the PJs are made from means they’re super soft and comfortable. Plus while these come in sets, if you live in a warmer climate, you can always switch out the top or bottom for a lightweight t-shirt or pair of shirts and still have an adorable set.

Disney Pajamas

For adult Disney fans or those with kiddos who love Mickey Mouse, this pair of pajamas is perfect. Not only are they great for any type of holiday celebration, but since they’re made from cotton, the pajamas are lightweight enough for spring and summer wear. Throw in price tags under $35, and you’ve got a great Disney-themed option for the holidays.

Coordinating Sets

Matching isn’t for everyone, and if you’re one of the families who would rather not go samesies for the holiday, you can opt for coordinating pajamas instead.

This set for babies, kids, and adults features polka dots or stripes but in the same color palettes. While there’s nothing that shouts “Holiday!” about the navy hue and white detailing, the details are impeccable. With white piping around the legs, arms, and buttons, it’s a classic and timeless look. Plus, the sets do give off a bit of a festive winter vibe alluding to the color palette of a snowy night.

Overall, this set says, we like to do things together, but we promise we aren’t obnoxious.

Onesies

If you’re looking for a pair of matching pajamas for you and a significant other or you and a roommate, matching onesies is the way to go. While this might not be the best idea for young kids (the whole bathroom situation could get complicated), for adults, it’s a fun and kind of silly way to celebrate the holidays.

This option from brand Funzies (yes, even the name is great) features all things Christmas-related. Stockings, Christmas trees, snowmen, presents, and flurries make up the pattern for a fun and festive look. If, however, you’re a hot sleeper, these might not be for you. Those in cold climates, though, will likely appreciate the warm fleece material and handy hoodie design.

Personalized Pajamas

Those who want to go the extra mile should grab this cute pair of personalized pajamas. These options from Etsy are traditional with styles ranging from green and red stripes to candy-cane-inspired patterns, but the unique part is that the Etsy seller will embroider your family members’ names onto the tops. Whether you want to have Mom and Dad monikers, nicknames, or simply real names, it’s a fun way to add something different to your classic holiday pajamas.

Character Pajamas

Pop culture and character pajamas are great choices if your family loves a particular movie or television show during the holiday season. These Grinch pajamas are a great example. With simple Ragland tees with the famous Dr. Suess character’s face and matching, printed pants, they’re ultra-festive and fun for the movie nights when the whole family snuggles up for the annual watch of the show.

Your pets are part of your family, and, as such, they should definitely be included in the pajama party. These pet sweaters from Old Navy have matching kid and adult pajama options, so the entire family—with fur and without—can coordinate

Even if you decide not to wear matching pajamas this year, the dog will still look super adorable in any of these holiday sweaters.


Sure, Christmas might still be several months away, but there’s no time like the present if you need multiple sets of pj’s. For those who want everyone to match in the annual Christmas card, scoop these sets up before they’re gone!
