Few things in life are sweeter than the perfect pair of Christmas pajamas. The warm, cozy feeling we get when we pull our arms through the sleeves makes us ready for Christmas movies, cookie decorating and tree trimming. Whether or not there's Christmas magic in the pajamas themselves, donning a special pair for the holiday is a tradition we simply adore. Every family does it differently. Maybe you get your Christmas pajamas early so you can wear them throughout the holiday season or maybe you get them on Christmas Eve, but regardless of when you put them on for the first time, these pajamas are a custom we cannot wait to pass onto the next generation. While your kiddos might outgrow their pajamas, the memories they make in them will last a lifetime.

At a variety of price points and styles, we have pulled together a few of our favorite kids Christmas pajamas for this holiday season.
