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 your 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 6.
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 10 best Christmas pajamas for men. The list includes outfits for individuals, couples, families and even 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 fire up your favorite Christmas movies for some festive holiday fun.
1. Matching Men’s Stewart Plaid Pajama Set
When it comes to festive clothing, we love a fun and silly print as much as anyone (just read the rest of this list!). But these flannel men’s Christmas pajamas from Macy offer a more understated holiday look. You can spend an entire Christmas morning in these fun pajamas without feeling too ridiculous. And while we aren’t suggesting you buy matching sets for every member of your family, it’s nice to know that you can. These warm and cozy PJs come in women’s and children’s sizes so the whole family can get in on the fun.
2. Hanes Thermal Waffle Knit Jogger Pajama Pant
Chances are that you’ve seen a buffalo plaid print without ever knowing it was officially called that. The striking red and black plaid pattern is one of the most frequently used patterns on flannel clothing, which makes it a great bottom to wear not only during the holidays but well past it too. With an adjustable drawcord, they’ll fit the level of comfort needed in any given moment, while the jogger cuff helps make them look pretty stylish to boot. Or, at least, as stylish as men’s Christmas pajamas can look.
3. Amazon Essentials Polar Bear Print
If you’re looking for a budget buy that will go a long way in terms of wearability, look no further than this pair of Christmas pajama pants from Amazon’s Essentials line. Made from a soft, almost knit-like cotton, they come in a fun polar bear print perfect for the winter holiday season. Because the design isn’t strictly related to Christmas, you can keep wearing them all winter long.
4. Intimo Buddy the Elf Christmas Pajamas
BEST FOR THE JOKESTER
Load up the waffles, candy and whipped cream for a pajama set that will have you feeling just as jolly as Buddy the Elf. This Christmas onesie from Intimo will transform you into the titular elf from the Will Ferrel-starring movie, Elf. Immerse yourself in a fully comfortable PJ suit that’s great to lounge around in. It’s probably only a matter of time before you’re spreading Christmas cheer, by singing loud for all to hear.
