It’s been a decade since the Holderness family released their viral #XMAS JAMMIES video, where mom, dad, and kids are parading around in their matching Christmas pajamas. The video was initially intended to be their family’s annual Christmas card (which is made evident by their not-so-humble bragging), but it caught the attention of millions because so many of us can relate to the need for a new set of Christmas PJs for the whole family every year. 

My husband is a real Scrooge (or a Grinch, depending on your Christmas villain of choice) and refuses to do matching family pajamas at Christmas. The basic millennial in me cries each year when all of the family PJ sets hit the shelves. Fortunately, I have two kids who still love wearing matching Christmas pajama sets, and there is never a shortage of adorable prints for babies and toddlers. If you are like my husband and have no desire to follow in the matching #XMAS JAMMIES footsteps of the Holderness family but still can’t resist dressing your little one up in festive cozies, I’ve gathered some of the cutest, softest, and best baby and toddler holiday pajamas available this season.

Christmas Cookies and Candy

Available in sizes 18M to 3T, the Long Sleeve Footless Sleeper in “Christmas Day!” from Nest Designs is all kinds of cute. This sleepwear features a print with gingerbread cookies, candy in holiday wrapping, candy canes, pinecones, and evergreen branches, and a two-way diagonal zipper to make diaper and wardrobe changes quick and easy. 

Candy Canes and Peppermints

Kiki & Lulu’s “Living in the Mo-mint” convertible footie pajamas are sweet, adorable, and incredibly soft and breathable. Made from bamboo fabric (with a touch of spandex to keep them stretchy), these convertible footies are available for babies from newborn size to 2T and feature a unique design that allows you to choose whether your little one wears them with footies or with their toes wiggling free. If you’re not into the candy cane print, KiKi & Lulu offer several other fun options as well (my daughters are wearing the “On Christmas, We Wear Pink” print this year).

Christmas Carols

Dreamland Baby’s Toddler Bamboo Pajamas in “Holiday” are perfect for the tot who loves to sing Christmas songs. The simple, dark green “Fa La La” printed jammies come in a set (pajama pants and shirt), are made from buttery soft bamboo fabric, and are available in toddler sizes, 2T to 5T.

The Grinch

This famous villain-turned-good-guy is a holiday staple in many homes, so it’s no wonder why Hanna Andersson created a “Dr. Seuss Grinch” Long John set. Like all Hanna Andersson PJs, these kids’ Christmas pajamas are made with hypoallergenic fabric, feature a sensory-friendly design with scratch-free seams, and are well-made to ensure they last for years. The fair isle print is full of familiar art from the Dr. Seuss book—including cans of Who Hash!

Hanukkah Menorahs 

Celebrate the miracle of Hanukkah with this adorable menorah print pajama set by Smaller Things. When you’re lighting the menorah, playing dreidel, eating sufganiyot, or just reading a bedtime story, your little one will light up the night in these cozy, comfy, organic cotton jammies. The festival of lights begins early this year, so make sure to order yours in time! These are available in sizes from 6M to 10Y.

Holiday Party Animals

Set your babe up to celebrate in style this Christmas with the “Holiday Party” Classic Zipper Footie from EGG New York. These adorable super soft cotton pajamas feature a hidden zipper and are available in newborn sizes up to 24M. Its fun and festive animal print includes flamingos, dinosaurs, giraffes, narwhals, and sloths dressed with holiday accessories and ready to party.

Santa’s Sleigh

Santa and his reindeer fly across the moon, evergreen trees, and a sweet, rustic A-frame cabin in the watercolor-style print on Burt’s Bees  Organic Cotton Sleeper in “Santa’s Sleigh.” These comfy, organic cotton jams have a zipper closure and include a rubber grippy design on the bottom of the feet to help ensure your tot doesn’t slip when they’re running towards their presents on Christmas morning.

Frosty the Snowman

The dreamy Copper Pearl’s Zip-Up Footie Pajama in the “Frosty the Snowman” print is made from super soft fabric, offers a tagless design, and is equipped with a two-way zipper for quick and easy changes. They’re available in newborn sizes to 18-24M and are covered in little dancing, smiling snowmen in classic top hats and red scarfs.

Gingerbread Men

If you’re looking for a simple design full of holiday spirit, check out the Ralphie CloudBlend Long Sleeve Pajama Set from Wildbird. The two-piece dark brown set features little gingerbread men scattered all over (some adorned with Santa hats). The soft, cozy jammies are made from sustainable, breathable, naturally hypoallergenic fabrics to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep.

Winter Woodland Animals

The Night Night Footed Pajamas in “Scandinavian Animals” from Tea Collection are available in sizes 3-6M to 4T, which is great for families with kids in different clothing size groups. The vibrant, festive colored print has a holiday vibe, but it’s still subtle enough to work all year long (not that there’s a time limit on Christmas PJs, of course). The ribbed cotton pajamas include grippies on the bottoms of the feet to help keep your kiddo steady.

Snoopy and Woodstock

Featuring one of the best buddy duos, the Peanuts Snoopy Holiday Kids Organic Pajama Set from Pottery Barn Kids pays tribute to the classic and adorable friendship between Snoopy and Woodstock. The two-piece set is covered in images of the pair dressed up for the holidays, tangled up in colorful twinkle lights, using Snoopy’s food bowl as a sled, and more. Made from 100% organic cotton, this set will get softer with each trip through the washer and dryer and, like Snoopy himself, never go out of style.

Sugar Plum Fairy

Featuring images from the classic ballet number, including Clara, the toy nutcracker, candy canes, bells, candy, and more, toddlers and big kids can show some love to the Nutcracker with the Clara & the Sugarplum Fairy Pajama Set by Petidoux. Available in sizes 2T through 8, the two-piece pajama sets are made from Peruvian Pima cotton with a soft and snug fit. PSA: Scoop them up while you can because even though these PJs are new arrivals, they also appear to be among Maisonette’s best sellers and are selling out quickly.


The Long Sleeve Pajamas in “Mistletoe” print from Kyte Baby offers the perfect opportunity to give your kiddo lots of smooches this holiday season (as if you need a reason). In addition to mistletoes, this two-piece set also features doves, pinecones, and white berries, creating a timeless holiday look.  These pajamas are made from buttery, soft, breathable bamboo fabric and are available in sizes 18-24M up to size 10.

Santa Bear

I don’t even know where to begin with the Kissy Love Santa Bear Zip Pajama from Kissy Kissy—it’s just so adorable! Featuring Christmas trees and the cutest little bear waving while wearing a Santa hat, gloves, and socks and carrying a bag of presents, these toddler PJs are available in sizes 12-18M and 18-24M. The jammies offer open ankles to let the feet wiggle freely, a classic zipper closure, and are made from light and cozy Pima cotton.

Classic Plaid

Is there a more traditional print for Christmas than red and green plaid? The Convertible One-Piece Pajamas in “Red Tartan Plaid” from Posh Peanut are the quintessential Christmas jammies. Made from bamboo fabric, they feature a convertible footie design, a two-way zipper, and grips on the feet to ensure safety. These adorable pajamas are available in sizes 3-6M to 3T.
