Pajama sets are one of my all-time obsessions, so of course I’m giddy that the season for matching pajamas is almost here. Throw two kids into the mix and it’s just that much sweeter. I’ve had way too much fun researching brands and browsing all the cute prints for this upcoming holiday season. Here are my favorites -- be sure to grab them before they sell out!

I can’t resist a mommy & me matching moment, and this year’s LAKE holiday collection is too good

For Tried & True Staples, Plus The Softest Pajamas Imaginable

You’ll see lots of pajamas featured here, but I have to start with LAKE pajamas, a brand I’ve been personally wearing for years. LAKE is known for its classic patterns, and this season’s holiday collection (from $44) does not disappoint. Our whole family opted for the festive green stripe, but mixing and matching styles and patterns could be fun too. Made from 100% Peruvian Pima cotton, these pajamas are so insanely soft I have a hard time taking them off (we may or may not wear them to the park on weekend mornings…). Plus, I love that the baby styles come with two functional buttons at the neck to make getting ready for bedtime easy.

Loving this rich emerald color for holiday and beyond

Another staple in our home is Kyte Baby -- the brand’s sleep bags are second to none and between my two kids, we have at least six of them. But it wasn’t until my youngest daughter Lucy was born earlier this year that I discovered Kyte’s pajamas. I swear she sleeps better in these than any other pajamas. While the holiday line hasn’t dropped yet, I grabbed this zippered footie and toddler set in Emerald for the girls. The gorgeous, jewel-toned hue is perfect for the season, but will also be a great staple color for the whole winter. Made of 97% Bamboo Rayon and 3% Spandex, they’re the perfect combination of soft and stretchy.

Our whole family will be in these Little Sleepies fair isle pajamas on Christmas morning

For Fun Patterns And Comfortable Silhouettes

Our family loves Little Sleepies. I’m a huge sucker for fun prints and love that the brand is continually coming out with new patterns. The holiday collection (from $30) includes a green plaid, a whimsical fair isle, a festive floral, pink Christmas trees, and even a Hanukkah style with dreidels. The brand’s custom-milled bamboo viscose is buttery soft and great for sensitive or eczema-prone skin. Even better, though, are the thoughtful details these pajamas offer -- seamless fabric with no tags and fold-over mittens and foot cuffs that keep your little one’s hands and feet warm on even the coldest winter nights.

Pehr’s holiday designs are both classic and whimsical - pieces we’ll cherish forever

We’re also obsessed with everything Pehr (the iconic storage pint and toddler blanket are staples in my home). The brand is known for its adorable prints, so when Pehr launched pajamas and holiday designs this past month, I knew I had to get my hands on a few styles. I’m a big fan of the Winterberry Flutter Romper ($36), Baby Sleeper in Juniper ($32), and for a more neutral style you can’t go wrong with this sweet star print. 

For Luxury Sleepwear In Traditional Prints

If the Kennedys were doing a Christmas photo shoot, they’d certainly wear Petite Plume. These pajamas are the epitome of luxury, with impeccable attention to detail like rich velvet trim, ruffled collars, and even matching bows. The brand’s holiday designs (from $48) include traditional patterns like mini green and red ginghams, classic tartans, and ticking stripes, along with some fun prints like these colorful trees. This year, you’ll find our family in the lightweight flannel mini red gingham -- a colorway that will never go out of style.

From cutesy patterns to classic styles, there’s something for everyone this season.
