Matching PJs have been a growing family tradition for years, creating priceless memories—as well as photos for social media! But getting kids (not to mention spouses!) to take part in any group activities can sometimes require some prodding. That’s why we’re sharing 5 ways to make the popular matching PJ trend work for your family!
Start with Well-Made PJs
If PJs are scratchy or ill-fitting, no one is going to want to wear them. That’s why we *adore” the holiday (and all) PJs from Hatley, a sustainably-made, family-owned brand. The quality is so incredibly high that these are guaranteed to be hand-me-downs—helpful since kids outgrow PJs every year or two.
Go with Fun but Not Juvenile Patterns
Bigger kids (and Dads) may not want to wear super silly patterns, and that’s understandable. Hatley offers a curated lineup of holiday PJs that everyone will feel good in, from Candy Cane Stripes to Glow in the Dark Christmas Trees.
Think Beyond Santa
Sure, if your family does welcome the big guy in the red suit on December 24, Santa might be a perfect pattern for your clan. But non-denominational choices work particularly well for families who might celebrate a variety of traditions (coming in handy for larger group gatherings like holidays at the in-laws!). The Fair Isle print from Hatley is one of our favorite festive choices. Bonus: You can wear prints like these all year long, well after New Year’s.
For Larger Groups, Mix & Match
Finding a pattern to suit different families, styles and preferences can be difficult when you’re dealing with multiple generations. Consider letting grandparents, cousins, or different parts of a larger family choose the pattern they like best.
Just like holiday cards, Elf on the Shelf, and New Year’s Eve party plans, the period from Nov to January can feel like deadlines are constantly sneaking up on you. Holiday PJs tend to sell out quickly, and you’ll want to avoid any shipping delays that might happen during the holiday crush. Order your holiday PJs today and you can wear them now, through the holidays, and after!
