Aside from the Christmas cheer, great food, presents and jolly good times to be had, one of the best things about the holiday season is wearing Christmas-related attire. For many people, this means seeking out the most ridiculous, ugly Christmas sweaters in the land. But Christmas-time apparel isn’t just restricted to daytime clothing. By adding a pair of festive men’s Christmas pajamas to your wardrobe, you won’t have to wear anything dull until January 6th.

What makes Christmas clothing so fun is the fact that it’s the one time of year when wearing matching clothes with your partner, family, friends and even pets is openly encouraged. In fact, matching pajama sets are an increasingly popular way to celebrate the holidays. Whether it’s just for the Christmas photo and Christmas morning or you want to wear festive pajamas throughout December, you surely won’t be alone. Not convinced? Even celebrities like Will Smith and Jessica Alba love a good set of Christmas pajamas.

To get you ready for this holiday season, we’ve put together a list of the 25 best Christmas pajamas for men. The list includes outfits for:

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Families
  • A few that allow you to match your dog. 

These nighttime clothes are a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. So, get dressed in the best men’s Christmas pajamas, curl up by the fireside and put on your favorite Christmas movies for some festive holiday fun.
