Places to Buy Christmas PJs

Wednesday November 2, 2011

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to buy the kids matching Christmas jammies.   It’s the one present they get to open Christmas Eve, so that everyone can wake up Christmas morning looking all cute and photo-worthy :).

So my photography skills may leave something to be desired, but the cute still comes through!

Finding the perfect jammies for my kids has always been challenging — I’m looking for a particular color, a style that works for boys and girls, and in a range of sizes.   Also, I don’t want to spend a fortune, I try to keep it under $20/pair, ideally under $15.

Gymboree is usually my go to place for Christmas PJs, but this year, I was looking around for some other options as well and decided to share a round-up with you.  If you have other suggestions, I’d love for you to share them in the comments!

Places to Buy Christmas Pajamas

Gymboree Baby Girls, Big Girls, Baby Boys, Big Boys
Gymbo rocks because they always have several Christmas styles (in Christmas colors), their sizes run from baby to tween, and the make matching styles for boys and girls (and parents too)!   Their initial prices can be high, but they usually feature PJs as a a “Jingle Deal” at some point in the fall, making them much more reasonable.  Prices run $21 – $32, but can be much less with sales.

Crazy 8Girls, Boys
Crazy 8 is to Gymboree what Old Navy is to Gap.  They had a few cute Christmas themed options that would work for boys or girls.   Prices run around $18/pair, but they are currently on sale for around $10/ea.

Hanna AnderssonSleepwear
HA has lots of Christmas PJs, and unisex options for both genders, and parents too.  They are well made, even organic — and priced accordingly.  HA is also one of the few places I have seen short-sleeved Christmas PJs.  Regular prices $38-42, currently 30% off.

Old Navy  — Toddler GirlsBig Girls, Toddler Boys, Big Boys
The little kid sizes have cute Christmas jammies, but nothing in the big kid selection coordinates.  Prices around $15/pair, or 2+ at $11/ea.

GAPToddler Girls, Big Girls, Toddler Boys, Big Boys
Adorable baby/toddler Christmas options (up to 5T), but sadly nothing coordinating with big kid sizes.  Prices around $25/ea

TargetGirls, Boys
Target usually has something, but it’s a pain to navigate their website.   Most of their stuff is character clothing and cheaply made.   I’ve seen cute jammie options in store in the past (I haven’t noticed anything yet this year).  Regular prices around $13-18.

Childrens PlaceBaby Girls, Big Girls, Baby Boys, Big Boys
A few boy options could also work for girls, but nothing specifically matching for both genders.   What I did see was cute, well made and reasonably priced.   Regular price around $15/pair.

L.L. BeanGirls, Boys
Very limited in Christmassy options, only one 2 piece flannel set that is very cute, but also very spendy at $40/ea.

Lands EndGirls, Boys
Some cute options for boys or girls, but nothing coordinating for both.  Also a higher price point, around $35-40/ea.

The Company Store/Company KidsFamily
TCS carries matching family pjs in a variety of styles. They are more expensive.  They also must sell out quickly because as of Halloween, many of the Christmas styles are almost sold out.  Regular prices run $20-49/ea.

Pajama GramFamily Sets
PG has a variety options and has coordinating sets for the whole family, including the dog.  I’ve never ordered from them so I can’t speak to the quality.  Prices run $35-40.

Pottery Barn KidsKid Pajamas
Cute, high quality, a few options for mixed gender.  Regular price is ~$42, currently on sale for $34/ea.

CartersPajama Shop
Carters has some cute options boys or girls, but I didn’t see much that would work for both. [10-1-12 Update:  Also, sizing only runs up to size 7.  Carter’s now carries big kid sizes up to size 14!   Pricing around $16-18 $24-28.]

CWD KidsHoliday PJs
CWD has quite a few holiday pajama options, including a few for adults.   They are also quite spendy, ranging from $32-42.

Disney StoreGirls, Boys
I’m not a big Disney person, but someone mentioned to me they are running a deal right now and are offering free personalization.  They have a couple of cute Christmas-themed styles.  Prices seem reasonable, $16.50 – $19.50.

So… that’s what I’ve found out there this year.  I ended up buying my kids Christmas jammies from Crazy 8, taking advantage of the $10 sale price.   What other places have you looked for matching Christmas/Holiday pajamas?

    My family does this too. Everyone gets to open 1 gift Christmas Eve. They all know it is the new pajamas but they pretend to be surprised every year.
    I make our pajamas each year. So fun to find the fabric and sew them myself. I confess that sometimes I am lazy, (I work full time) and I will make just the bottoms and buy new t-shirts to match the bottoms. It is still cute.

      Anyone who makes their own pajamas does not qualify as lazy! I am so impressed. I made everyone’s Christmas stockings… over several years, with help from my mom. It was a major undertaking and one of the reasons I swore not to have any more kids (ha, just kidding). I bet your jammies are adorable!

    I have used for the last 2 years. We do the whole family in the same fabric. Search for custom pjs. Usually get all five of us pjs for about $125.

    I was just doing a search on matching PJ’s and came across your blog. I’m having a heck of a time finding them for my 2 kids, 1 is a 9 year old girl and the other a 4 year old boy, but I’m not giving up yet! It’s funny how everyone seems to do the 1 Christmas Eve PJ present when 10 years ago it seemed like no one was doing it. This fad is making it very difficult right now for me 🙂

    I love the idea of matching Christmas pajamas so much and had such difficulty finding all sizes that I created a company with dozens of holiday designs that match baby to adult sizes. I am the founder and love to chat and help. Please ask for me!

      Amber, I love the selections you have on your site but they aren’t affordable for me when I need to buy matching ones for 6 grankids sizes 4T – adult L

      I was so happy to find your website to get started shopping for matching christmas pajamas for my family. I was surprised, and slightly saddened by what I found. I love the pajamas, but I was shocked by the prices. I understand about the big name companies charging an arm and leg. But can’t believe your prices. I have six grandchildren. How would anyone afford to buy that many at 40.00-52.00 a set. Hannah Andersson does’nt charge that much. Good luck, hope your able to sell. Just wish normal moms and grandmas could buy. If the prices were lower, I would be a customer for life, and order every year. Think about it.

    I do the matching Christmas pjs too and have since my older two were young. We have even done professional photos (just the kids) in their pj’s. (they were little, like 3 and 1 1/2). I now have 3 boys and they range from 17 – 10. I still do buy them Chrismas pj’s, but they don’t match anymore… I will say coordinate. Like I might just go with red and that is the coordinating color. I also don’t drag them to Sears for photos in them – and I have not in a VERY long time… I just think it is a fun tradition and even though the boys groan they will appreciated it later on in life – I hope.

    Thank you so much for post in this!! I have 3 boys and do this with them every year but the endless hunting gets a lil frustrating to have links to all the sites in one place is awesome!!

    Just wanted you all to know that once started it never stops. My children, ages 26 and 33 still get their jamies on Christmas eve. I started it when they were newborns. I’m now buying for the girlfriend, the son in law and the grandson. Next year I’ll be doing it for a new grand child. When I asked my children about “starting their own traditions” I was informed that they were but they wanted me to continue with Christmas jamies. How could I say no. I’m not complaining…but it does get more expensive every year. Thanks for the websites this gives me a new list of places to try. So here I go:)

    Thanks for the Hanna A suggestion! I had never heard of them and they might be a little pricey (thankful for the sale) but at least it is organic cotton, quality, and they HAVE some awesome Christmas jammies for kids who wear larger than a “t” size or baby clothes. I hadn’t realized that now I guess I must buy my Christmas jammies before Halloween if I want a selection. Lesson learned. Thanks again!

    I have used Pajamagram several times and the quality is great, just expensive.

    The Holiday season and traditions are different for each family I know, but the latest idea of matching pjs is one we have introduced. Your pictures of the kids in their Xmas pajamas are cute. Your photography skills are fine!

    My family has a tradition where Santa’s elves drop new PJs outside the bathroom door on Christmas Eve. Waiting for the elves was almost as exciting as waiting for Santa! My sister and I just published a kids’ book about it- The Great PJ Elf Chase: A Christmas Eve Tradition.

    I love these christmas Pajamas. Every year we too dress in matching Christmas pajamas. It is a great phot opt!

    Annette says:

    Carters seems to have some really cute options for as low as $10.00 each… not bad. When I looked at crazy 8 all the ones I saw online were $19.00… are the cheaper in the actual store?

    Lauren says:

    My mom did this for me and my three brothers every year and now I do it for my kids, 3 and 5months! This is the first year I am trying to find matching pjs…. so hard! I did find some cute stuff on Amazon for not that expensive. I will give a few of your places a try as well. Thanks!

    Check Cabellas, they have some really nice jamies and their process aren’t horrible.

    That’s “their prices aren’t horrible”

    Love your blog, I have done this for 7 years for my grandkids ages 2-10. This year, I cannot afford to continue. I get teary eyed just thinking about it. But due to finances, it’s not going to happen. I prey my daughters surprise me and buy them this year, but I’m not really expecting.

    Thank you for this really comprehensive list! I’ve learned my lesson and am trying to start early this year.
    Unfortunately too early LOL But I’m pinning it to come back to later.
    BTW Etsy already has a 6 pages of stuff (not all is actual pajamas though)

    Sandy says:

    Thanks, I didn’t know The Childrens Place sold adult pajamas. When two of the grandkids are 12 and 15 it’s hard to find sizes.

    Amy says:

    I used to get family PJ’s at Chidren’s Place – but they aren’t selling them this year. My problem is my 14 yr old wears a mens size and I have a size 14 girl and a size 7/8 boy. This tradition is getting hard to keep up without spending a fortune!

    Heidi Neville says:

    Can I just say a big THANK YOU! I have been looking for hours for PJ’s. My kids are very tall so we have to buy bigger PJ’s. My son is right in between the biggest kid size and small adult. So frustrating this year. My kids have been in Gymboree since birth and now I don’t know where to go to get clothes. They still like graphic stuff on their shirts but because of their size I can only find boring clothes. Thank you so much for helping me. I bought what was left at Lands End then I found great Christmas PJ’s at CWD. I had never heard of them before.
