There are many reasons you might find yourself in the market for a set of matching family pajamas. Perhaps it’s a family holiday tradition — or could be, starting in 2020 and segueing into 2021 because time is but an ephemeral concept these days. Maybe you want to take as many ridiculous family photos as you can before your kids are old enough to be deeply embarrassed by the thought of wearing a reindeer-themed family pajama uniform. Maybe you just like the idea of Team Family showing up to the breakfast table in matching Star Wars jammies. Man, you don’t need a reason. If ever there was a year for hunkering down in your most comfortable, coordinated family pajama sets and waiting for spring, this is it.
We’ve all spent a lot of time in our comfy clothes this year, but don’t think of this as a lateral move. Think of it as an awesome, festive upgrade. Whether you go with Harry Potter themed holiday PJs or classic plaid jammies for the whole family, it’s going to make winter better.
The best matching family pajama sets are warm, well-made, soft, durable, and reasonably stylish. (When buying pajamas for little kids and for babies, make sure it’s a snug fit for safe sleeping.) You may go for a perfect match — with everyone from you and your spouse down to the baby and the dog in identical pajamas — or for variations on a theme or color scheme. Because some are of the House of Slytherin, and some are of the House of Gryffindor, but there’s a matching family pajama set for everyone. The prices listed are for a full adult set.
These rainbow-hued pajamas carry a Valentine's Day message, but really they can be worn all year round. They come in long and short one-pieces for kids and separates for adults, are made of organic cotton, and are machine washable.
We could really go overboard with the whole heart/sleeve theme here, but let's not. Suffice to say, one of our absolute favorite kids' brands wins again with awesome family jammies. They're made from GOTS certified organic cotton, are pre-washed to minimize shrinkage, and are thick enough to keep everyone warm when the temps drop later this winter. Plus, hearts!
Think of as loungewear more than mere pajamas. The adult sets, after all, include a long-sleeve henley style top and relaxed pant. The sets are made from ultra-soft Peruvian Pima cotton, and are free of flame retardants. They have an elastic tie waistband, side pockets and three button placket in front. They're so elegant, you may just want to wear them out of the house.
These tagless cotton pajamas are cute, comfortable, and even come in doll sizes. Yes, doll sizes. If you're not into dogs, you can choose between unicorn, dinosaur, or penguin themes, as well as tie dye prints and a ton of other styles.
Not in the market for anything too aggressively festive? You can't go wrong with stripes, especially when these sets can be worn all year and are made from the softest cotton.
Seriously, it's a romper. That you wear to bed, to breakfast, and to get the mail. The brushed French terry ensembles have a zip-front opening and ribbed wrist and ankle cuffs to keep everything in place.
Everyone looks good in rainbow. This striped set is made of 100% cotton and tag-free, so you won't have to go through the process of cutting out an itchy tag.
Seamless-feeling super-soft organic cotton in a simple but festive print that's bound to make everybody happy. With candy-cane stripes and green cuffs, this is surely the official uniform of off-duty elves everywhere.
If you look closely at these adorable Christmas sweater patterned pjs, you'll see they're actually dotted with Christmas gnomes. For adults, they come in long john and button-down style, and the kid's styles include two different kinds of long johns and a zip-up sleeper, plus matching accessories like socks and hats. Good luck passing up the gnome hat.
The Pottery Barn's Harry Potter collection means you can mix and match everything from your PJs to your bedsheets, letting those famous eyeglass frames and lightning bolts deck the halls, while also declaring your affiliation through pajama selection. If yours is the kind of family for whom a trip to Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter would be a near-religious experience, these are the pajamas for you.
Not surprisingly, L.L. Bean offers a whole range of classic Scotch plaid matching pajamas for couples — but this more affordable and equally cozy set, featuring the signature silhouette of Mount Katahdin, lets the whole family tune in the same PJ station.
Star wars families, rejoice. These Mandalorian-inspired jammies feature shorts sets for adults, sleepers for babies, and the option of a short or pant set for older kids. The loose design is breathable and conducive to movement, keeping the whole family comfy and good looking.
