You’re in good company! In the most recent years, Christmas pyjamas have become a real fashion trend, especially since the pandemic has forced us all to spend a lot more time at home in our pyjamas. In many families the tradition is to give Christmas pyjamas on Christmas Eve, and that is what most families do. However, in our opinion those cute pyjamas don’t get quite enough wear if you take the out only on Christmas Eve, so you might decide to start wearing them a little bit in advance.

But, before you can enjoy all the fun holiday activities in your new pyjamas, you’ll have to decide who gets to choose the Christmas jammies. You could, for instance, go out shopping together as a family and choose them, or purchase them ahead of time and surprise everyone. You can even shop online (together or on your own) which is a good choice in the stay-at-home times.

Is it even 25 December if you don’t wake up bleary-eyed and giddy with excitement in a pair of Christmas pyjamas? In our books, true festive fun means casting aside all your typical tastes in favour of something more playful. And the same goes for your nightwear: we’re talking tartan, velvet, feathers (yup), scarlet-red satin and star prints.

We have found the best Christmas pyjamas available online for you to save you some time!

The best Christmas pyjamas to wear this year


M&S Fleece Checked Rever Collar Pyjama Set

Marks&Spencer made these pyjamas from soft fleece to keep you super cosy. Regular fit and elasticated waistband for extra comfort. Complete with a classic all-over checked design, long sleeves and a rever collar. M&S Collection: versatile styles in modern shapes with unique and playful details.

Rock On Ruby Dear Santa Define Good Christmas Eve Pyjama Set

This Slogan Christmas Pyjamas by Rock On Ruby is just perfect for wearing on Christmas Eve whilst you wait for the big guy to deliver you some goodies!

Coco piped silk-satin pajama set – Olivia Von Halle

Olivia Von Halle is the queen of luxe pyjamas and this set is ticking all of our festive boxes with its fir-tree green hue, lustrous piped satin and pearlescent buttons. They’re comfy enough to sleep in, but look just as good dressed up with a pair of mules and OTT earrings.

Intimissimi Mannish-Cut Jacket in Silk Satin

Intimissimi’s set is cut in the shape of traditional men’s pyjamas, so the fit is super relaxed – ideal for swanning around the house on Christmas day. Plus, what’s more festive than scarlet-red satin?

Boohoo Mummy Elf Printed PJ Set

How cute are these elf pyjamas! Boohoo’s Christmas range is definitely worth a peek. The ‘Mummy’ and ‘Mini Me’ elf pyjamas have each been reduced by 20% in the sale, while the ‘Daddy Elf’ set is now 40% off.

Skims – Pointelle Henley Onesie

It’s official: we rate Skims. The brand’s shapewear, its underwear and its new nightwearwear lineup – which includes everything from alluring sleep slips complete with thigh splits (a thing now, apparently) to this cosy Fair Isle all-in-one.

Ghost – Harlow Satin PJ Set Bordeaux

Ghost Fashion has long been a fan of lustrous satin when it comes to dresses, so it’s only right that the brand’s gone and dropped pyjamas in the silky stuff for autumn/winter 2021. This luxe shorts set comes in several colours but the vino-inspired Bordeaux feels most appropriate for Xmas.

John Lewis Ghost Liberty Satin Pyjama Set, Bordeaux

Lightweight and soft against the skin, the Liberty nightwear set is made from smooth filament satin. Long-sleeves and matching straight cut trousers with an elasticated waist ensure warmth and comfort perfect for snuggling on the sofa to watch your favourite box set. The button-up shirt and loose collar provide a stylish yet easy to wear look. Staying in your PJ’s all day never looked so good.

H&M Fair Isle print pyjamas

H&M’s affordable pyjamas are cut from jersey in a close-fitting shape (we love a ski thermal vibe) and printed all over with festive Fair Isle.

Arket Silk Pyjama Shirt

If you’re a capsule wardrobe kinda gal, Arket’s black silk-satin pyjamas are the perfect festive treat. This versatile set works as sleepwear, eveningwear and separates – tuck the top into leather skirts or jeans, and wear the wide-leg pants with cashmere knits.

Uniqlo Women Flannel Pyjamas

Uniqlo is a great place to go for pared-back but festive pyjamas this Christmas. This classic set is made from tactile cotton-flannel woven with navy and red checks.

Sleeper Pink Party Pajama Set

Sleeper’s Party Pajama top and trouser set draws on traditional sleepwear silhouettes to create a whimsical look that will carry you from day into night. Crafted from ethically sourced viscose satin, this bestselling pyjama set is dyed a pastel pink hue, with contrasting red piping. The opulent (and detachable) ostrich feather trims reference detailing found on vintage pieces for a whimsical finish. Flaunt separately or together – we love the set with a statement bag and gold jewellery.
