Sure, the Christmas lights and decorations displayed everywhere and the lingering smell of peppermint hot chocolate are constant reminders that the holidays are just around the corner…but the true tell-tale signs of Christmas’ arrival are not seen or heard; they’re worn.
Not even “ugly sweaters” can compare to the feeling you get when receiving a pair of super soft, never-been-worn Christmas pajamas. Available in an assortment of festive combinations including sock monkeys, snowflakes, snowmen and elves, Christmas PJs add excitement and spark imagination into children and adults alike, building visions of Christmas cheer into their minds as they picture all the surprises they’ll be opening come Christmas morning.
Whether you’re already part of the annual tradition or thinking of starting this year, our elves searched high and low for some of the most fun and hilarious matching Christmas pajamas for the whole family:
Snug As A Bug
For over 20 years, Liz Heyland has been keeping families as “Snug As A Bug” with her snuggly onesies. Made with 100% polyester polar fleece, the onesies are machine washable and come in a variety of fun patterns for the whole fam. These jammies are designed and made in Canada so you know they’ll keep you warm and toasty come Christmas morning!
For families who live by the motto “Plaid is Rad,” the Christmas Plaid Collection is a perfect match of holiday colours and cottage-feel. The sticky foot bottoms help keep a good grip on hardwood floors and the unisex design look great on both him and her. We love that they also have pet pajamas available in this pattern for the furry family member. Not sure what size to get your pet? Check out their Pet Sizing chart!
Take a break from the usual festive patterns and give the Nordic Fox a try (besides, the Sock Monkey could use a break!). As part of their “hooded footed” design, this collection comes complete with a cozy hood, hand warmer pockets soft foot bottoms for all around comfort. *The kid version of the hooded footed onesies don’t have hoods.
While these wacky PJ’s were created by a husband and wife team in Northern Utah, Lazy One carries a variety of Canadian-inspired PJ’s (including their infamous “FlapJack” collection) that are easy to get your hands on thanks to the numerous stores scattered across Canada. In addition to loving the combination of “comedy and coziness,” we were also super impressed at their environmental practices that include using azo-free dyes, using recyclable or biodegradable bags and hangtags and only working with factories that have sound environmental policies.
We can almost guarantee that you’ve seen these adorable “FlapJack” PJ’s at the mall or at the popular souvenir shop. Made from 100% cotton and available in men, women and children’s sizes, these are definitely not your grandpa’s long johns. We love the buffalo plaid look in their “Bear Cheeks” collection, and especially love the cheeky “trap-door” detail. This is the perfect family get-up to wear for Christmas morning photo-ops or even for a hilarious Christmas card!
*In accordance with Canadian safety standards for children’s clothing, Flaps do not open on kid and infant FlapJacks PJs
Made with super soft polar fleece, non-slip soles, and available in a variety of hilarious prints (our favorites including “Moose Hockey” and “Classic Moose“), Lazy One’s Footeez Pajamas might look like other onesies, except for one unique (and hilarious) detail – a peekaboo “trap door” on the rear! This is the perfect outfit for fireplace loungin’ and hot chocolate sippin’.
Drake General Store
Drake General Store is a proud supporter of Canadian artists and designers, and this is strongly reflected in their online shop. Their homegrown “Arborist” brand carries a collection of onesies fit for the fashion forward family, offering an eye-pleasing mix of modern designs and Canadiana prints.
Their “Holiday Onesie“ design reflects a potpourri of Christmas cheer, with simple and colourful illustrations of traditional holiday tidings including candy canes, wreaths, and even fruit cake! The comfy cotton/polyester/spandex material is perfect for running around the Christmas tree, or crawling under the tree to grab the very last presents!
The “Mountie” PJs are also designed locally and comfortable enough to wear under a snowsuit or while watching your favorite Christmas movie. With two different styles to choose from (onesie or thermal separates), this nostalgic print is one of their best-sellers and even comes with its own carrying pouch (BTW, this collection has been officially licensed by the RCMP, so you know it’s legit).
As one of Canada’s leading fashion brands since the 1970’s, Roots is synonymous with quality and comfort and their pajamas are definitely no different!
The “Cabin Onesie” is made of the same cotton/poly blend that their signature sweats are made of, so you know you’re guaranteed comfort and quality. The thumbholes in the sleeves add extra coziness for those days when you need to wrap your hands around some warm apple cider, and they even have similar hooded onesies for infants and toddlers.
If matching isn’t your thing, Roots also has a selection of other pajama separates available for the whole family.
Christmas pajamas are as time-honoured as fruit cake – and we’re pretty sure your fam would prefer PJs over fruit cake, so spread the Holiday love to your family members and gift them with something to keep them cozy for the season!
