Family Christmas pyjamas – will you be wearing matching PJs this year?

Matching festive nightwear is a 'thing'!

As Christmas Eve traditions go, putting on a brand-new pair of pyjamas has to be up there with putting out a mince pie and a carrot for Santa and Rudolph. And this year, some high street stores are taking the excitement up a notch with matching nightwear for the whole family!

Yes, it’s coordinating PJs all round this Christmas.

More festivewear: Aldi Christmas jumpers launch this week and there’s one for all the family – including the dog!

Family-Christmas-PJs-Next-bear-pyjamas

A good place to start is at Next, where there’s a choice of not one, not two, but THREE Family Christmas pyjama sets. Our personal favourite is this Mummy/Daddy/Little/Baby Bear range. You can choose from blue striped or tartan bottoms – we’d be happy with either – and sizes go from nine months to men’s extra large.

If you’re after something at the budget end of the price spectrum, head to Home Bargains. Available in store only, there’s a plaid set of pyjamas for traditionalists and Santa suits for a fun take on the trend.

This year’s prices haven’t been released yet, but last year the store was selling similar pairs from £5.99 for kids and £8.99 for adults.

By the way, is it just us that’s spotted the whole, ‘same parents, different children’ thing?!
