22 Matching Holiday Pajamas Perfect for Your First Married Christmas

Cozy AF


The holidays are all about traditions, and when I was growing up, one of my most beloved Christmas customs was spending an obscene number of hours in what I called "loungewear," and what my mother called, "Are you really still wearing pajamas at 3:00 in the afternoon?"

There's just something about this cozy time of year that calls for enveloping yourself in the softest, plushiest, closest thing to a kitten made of clouds you can find, and staying in that ensemble until you're forced to go outside. (Maybe even then if you're just heading to, like, Walmart. We guarantee those employees have seen worse.) And the only thing better than comfortable AF PJs? Holiday-themed, matching comfortable AF PJs! For many families, having every member don a coordinating pair of jammies at some point during the season is its own favorite holiday pastime. If you're newly married, engaged, or living together, we're betting you're ready to bring your partner into the (flanneled) fold. Thus, we've rounded up 22 pairings of holiday matching family pajamas that are perfect for couples. (Hello, great gift ideas!)

As with most family traditions, some are cute, and some are a little cringey but all will warm your heart (and backside!) this winter. Order a few pairs, then snap a pic and share with the world. Both Instagram and your actual Gram will love ya for it. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to receive a selfie of her and Grandpa wearing their matching sets in return.
