We’ve gotten matching Christmas pajamas for the family on and off for about 5 years now. I used to just get matching sibling pajamas, but then decided it would be fun if the parents jumped in on the fun. We don’t do adult Christmas pajamas every year but it’s fun to mix them in on occasion with the kids holiday pajamas.
We do sometimes do the cheap family Christmas pajamas, but in general, I’ve found that I prefer paying for slightly nicer ones so they actually hold up well past the season. I have no qualms with my kids wearing their Christmas pajama sets the whole year long!
Matching Family Christmas Pajamas Tip #1: Give Pajamas Early
I know of many families who hand out holiday jammies on Christmas Eve. But I love the whole holiday season so much and want it to feel super festive for more than one night. So we always give our kids Christmas pajamas on Thanksgiving weekend! We decorate our tree while wearing them and it feels super fun and exciting.
Plus, then it spreads out the gift-giving excitement for more than 24 hours, so they’re extra thrilled to kick off the season while wearing them. And I can actually get cute pictures of them wearing them while decorating before they’re all hopped up with Christmas Eve adrenaline. Then I just make sure to wash our holiday family pajamas before they put them on for Christmas Eve!
Matching Family Christmas Pajamas Tip #2: Order Christmas Pajamas for the Family Early
We’ve had a few years when we’ve tried to get matching family pajama sets in December or even the end of November. And they’re all sold out!! Especially with a large family, it’s tricky to get all the sizes and styles we need. So I always try to get our matching holiday pajamas as soon as possible in October. And then it’s one fewer thing I need to do during the month of December when things are super busy!

Best Matching Family Christmas Pajamas
The gold star of matching Christmas pajamas for the family is Hanna Andersson. They have darling styles and you cannot beat the quality. The ONLY baby jammies I still have from when my oldest was a baby nearly a decade ago are Hanna Andersson ones, and they still look almost brand new.
They do cost a bit more, so I usually wait for them to go on sale. I can usually get a set for around $30, which is definitely worth it since they last as long as they do. Plus, their customer service is top notch if anything does happen to them.
The one downside is their patterns don’t vary much over the years. Which is great if you need a new pair of something, but tricker if you want to change things up with a new pattern. So I like having a few other brands to check, as well.
I feel like Target has stepped up its Christmas pajama game in the last few years. A couple of my kids are super into dinos right now, so I may be a fun mom for once and order these dinosaur matching Christmas jammies.
All of Boden’s stuff is so high quality, and their pajamas are no exception. I’m obsessed with this whimsical Christmas print!
Walmart has some surprisingly really cute family matching pajamas for Christmas! I love this classic tartan with options for the whole family to get decked out in holiday matching family pajamas. And how cute is this bear family set?
Land’s End always has amazing quality, and I love that they have a girls’ nightgown version, too!
Yep, they have pajamas, too! I love this sweet holiday print, but unfortunately they don’t have baby sizes!
The Children’s Place is another great place to get classic, cute family matching pajamas. I feel like The Children’s Place has ones that are a little more focused on the whimsical aspects of Christmas – Santa and elves and such. I love this forest woodland theme, too!
I hope this is helpful with your own family Christmas pajamas sets. Happy holidays!
