CHRISTMAS pyjamas have become a bit of a gifting ritual, often showing up in Christmas Eve boxes so the kids have something new to wake up in on Christmas Day.
From stripes to festive looks, we’ve rounded up the best kids’ Christmas pyjamas to buy now.
Note: children’s insistence on not sleeping throughout this period is not such fun for parents.
One thing’s for sure: when you’re a kid, Christmas is a season of PJs.
There’s no school, there’s lots of relaxed family time, and after all of the presents and feasting, kids love nothing more than spending hours on the sofa watching Christmas films and TV shows, or playing with their new toys and gadgets.
Christmas pyjamas need to be comfortable, and a festive touch also works a treat: think red candy cane stripes, a wintry animal print or a fluffy snowman Christmas onesie.
We also love all of the super-popular family twinning looks at the moment – you can definitely find kids’ Christmas pyjamas in grown-up sizes to get the whole family involved in the matchy-matchy thing.
