It’s the season of sparkles, cozy sweaters, and velvet dresses! It's so fun to get dressed up for the holiday season, but winter looks aren’t only fancy holiday outfits. Christmas pajamas and casual clothes can be just as festive. Who doesn’t love getting up early on Christmas mornings, and watching kids sit by the tree opening presents still in their pajamas?

Getting your kids special Xmas pajamas makes going to bed the night before Christmas feel even more special. And when mom and dad have a matching pair, it makes for the cutest Christmas card photos!

Shopping for kids' clothes around Christmas time is always a blast because of all the cute things you can find. The best part is that you can often find great matching sets for the whole family. What's better than matching Christmas jammies? Below you will find some examples of outfits for kids that are high-quality and absolutely adorable.

Matching Family Christmas PJs

When looking for the perfect pajama set, you want it to be comfortable. The matching jammies below are all popular because they are both cute and cozy.

If you like plaid, then you are going to love these matching family Christmas pajamas we found on Amazon. These WephuPSho buffalo plaid pajamas are perfect if you love red plaid flannel PJs. There are sizes from baby to adult and even your dog! If you like this brand but not the plaid, there are other styles available as well.

They come in a super adorable vintage fair isle pattern that you are going to just fall in love with. It features cute bears, Christmas trees, and snowflakes. There are other patterns too.

The Children's Place is known for selling some awesome matching Christmas pajamas. They are all unisex so there is no boy/girl or men/women, just kid and adult, as well as sizes for your little one as well. This Christmas Crew 2021 Green Collection is both a bestseller and a great option for holiday pajamas that you all can wake up wearing on Christmas morning.

Of course, I had to include a character-themed Christmas pajamas set. Who doesn't love the holiday movie Elf? These adorable jammies from Hanna Andersson are perfect for lovers of the holiday classic. The Warner Bros™ Elf Matching Family Pajamas come in sizes for the whole family, including a one-piece for the baby. Try these out this Christmas Eve!

Christmas Sweaters and Long Sleeves

This Christmas sweater by Hanna Andersson is warm and cozy but also adorable. It comes in several patterns and colors but the dinosaur one is my absolute favorite!

I love this HowJoJo Boys Cotton Longsleeve Shirt on Amazon. Not only are there fun Christmas graphics but there are other holidays available as well such as Halloween.

Fancy Holiday Outfits

Fancy Christmas Outfits

Who doesn't love getting all dressed up for a holiday party or a photoshoot? I love this Carter's 3-piece Sweater Vest Set for boys because they will still be comfy in their fancy clothes. Plus since they aren't Christmas-themed, they can be worn during other special occasions.

Also from Carter's is this Cable Knit Sweater Dress that comes in bright holiday red, but can also be worn any time of the year.

Another dress I found is a fun print from Hanna Andersson. This Holiday Print Dress comes in a variety of colors but the "Fa La La" is by far my favorite. It’s unique and colorful!

Character Themed Christmas Clothes

Character Themed Christmas Clothes

No holiday season is complete without recognizable characters. This adorable Disney Star Wars Graphic T-Shirt features the loveable character Baby Yoda on top of a Christmas tree.

Of course, I had to include Disney's Minnie Mouse as well since she is a popular character that is loved by many children. This Joy to the World Graphic T-Shirt is perfect for everyday wear.

Christmas Onesies

You can't forget your newborn baby boy or baby girl! This adorable Christmas romper from Hanna Andersson is equally festive and soft. The Baby Sweater Romper has four colors to choose from as well.

Make baby’s first Christmas one to remember. Carter's is a great place to find themed onesies for all of your baby's firsts. You are going to love this Christmas Elf Jersey Tee Onesie that says "Santa's newest elf." How cute is that?

These onesies are actually footed pajamas but are perfect for your little one. They are fleece and have an easy-to-use zipper. These Christmas pajamas come in a 2 pack and 2 different designs. They are also inexpensive so you have no reason to not stock up, especially since they can be worn not just as sleepwear. You can find the Simple Joys by Carter's Baby Holiday Fleece Footed Pajamas on Amazon.
