Whether you’re settling in for a holiday movie marathon or gathering around the tree for presents, there’s no way to make things feel more festive than by slipping into a pair of cozy, Christmas-themed PJs. So while we’ve covered the best artificial Christmas trees, Christmas tree toppers, Christmas lights, and wrapping paper, we’re now zeroing in on the best Christmas pajamas on Amazon, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers.

Best-rated (and least expensive) Christmas pajamas

Over 9,000 reviewers give these affordable festive flannel pajama pants five stars, and many mention how warm, soft, and comfortable they are. “I bought red and black tartan plaid ones for all of us for the holidays,” one reviewer begins. “These pants are warm without being too thick and the fabric is not itchy.” Though they’re sold as men’s pajamas, their loose, baggy fit means that they work for all genders, as one female reviewer writes: “They are super soft and lightweight but still have a slight thickness for warmth. These are by far the best PJs I’ve ever owned! They are just as baggy as I like them without it being too baggy.” (The same reviewer ended up buying more pairs for their entire family to wear for the holidays.) And another reviewer, who wrote their review while wearing them, says they were “instantly very comfortable and soft” right out of the box. “Not heavy for winter. Color and pattern are great. I’ll be in them all December!”

These Ekouaer pajamas are so comfortable that one life-long eczema sufferer reports that they no longer itch and scratch all night while wearing them. “These PJs are well-made with a jersey-like material that doesn’t wrinkle and has bounce. Very comfy!” they write. “I already have trouble getting out of bed, and these PJs will certainly not help that issue. Buy these and sweet dreams!” Additionally, tall reviewers who usually have trouble finding pajamas with a loose, oversize fit were especially delighted with the length of these. “I believe PJs and sweats should drape and be slightly big,” one five-nine reviewer writes. “I am tall and these are long enough for me and have a flattering fit. I love them!” And even after a thorough washing, they hold up beautifully, according to a third reviewer, who says they are “well-made, look great, and do not shrink.” They were also “concerned about the colors bleeding” but say the pajamas remained as vibrant as ever.

Reviewers love the slim, close-cropped fit of these Amazon Essentials pajamas, which they say have the same warm, cozy feeling as long johns. “My roommate is delighted with his new pajamas,” writes one satisfied reviewer. “He likes that the slim fit means they don’t get tangled up in the covers like loose pajama pants can.” Note that some suggest sizing up to ensure that the pajamas won’t be overly tight, as another reviewer did for their husband: “I went a size up from my husband’s usual size medium, as these are a closer fit than his usual PJs. They have a fly front and are fitted close to the body just like thermal underwear,” they write. “I tried them on myself and found them to be soft like your favorite T-shirt, and since they are not bulky, could actually be worn as an additional layer under your clothing.” But despite the tight fit, the pajama’s 100 percent cotton material is still “breathable, comfortable, and has some stretch to it,” according to a third reviewer. “The print is fun, the green color paired with the Christmas dog is a little different than other Christmas pajamas I have seen. We actually have the matching set for my sons and are excited for cheesy Christmas pictures this year.”

This very sweet three-piece pajama set received two thumbs up from one reviewer’s 7-year-old: “My daughter was so excited to get these for Christmas Eve. The very first thing she said when I put them on her was ‘These are so comfortable mommy,’” they write. “They are thicker than I thought they would be, perfect for December nights.” Many other reviewers also called out the quality of these pajamas. One writes that they are “so tired of going to big-box stores and only finding fleece or polyester pajamas for kids.” These cotton pajamas, on the other hand, were “true to size, breathable, and are somehow stretchy enough to make it through two seasons.” Plus, the fun, festive design “has not faded and the glitter lettering is still sparkly,” even after being run through the wash “numerous times,” a third reviewer reports.

Over 80 percent of reviewers give these Family Feeling pajamas five stars and rave over how “cute” and “snuggly” they are. “These are very nicely made PJs. The material is very soft and stays soft after washing,” one Texas grandma writes. “Fit both my grandsons around the waist nicely but gave room to grow. One grandson got the red striped pair and the other grandson the green. They were quite the festive pair on Christmas morning!” Another reviewer bought these PJs without high expectations, believing they “wouldn’t last much beyond a few washes,” but was pleasantly surprised to find that they “turned out to be some of the nicest PJs we’ve ever had.” They say that they’re “thick, they wash well, and the colors don’t fade. I cannot believe the quality of these PJs for the price.” In fact, another reviewer who orders their grandkids matching PJs for Christmas every year calls Family Feeling “the best brand I have found for quality Christmas PJs” since they run “true to size and are comfortable while opening gifts, playing, and are ready to go to bed when they finally pass out.” Another reviewer writes, “They’re soft and stretchy; my son loved them! The material is nice and the design is super cute, better than I expected! He’s a size five, I ordered a size five, and they fit great.”

Best Christmas pajamas for babies

These cheerful footie baby pajamas are “perfect, well crafted, and the material is soft,” one reviewer says. “The thickness is perfect to keep a newborn warm for the holidays.” Safety-minded parents also appreciated how the fleece material is “free of chemical flame retardants and the fabric itself is resistant to flames,” as one writes. “I have always felt yucky reading about flame retardants on PJs, just doesn’t seem safe — so I am glad these are free of chemicals.” And even after they were washed multiple times, the colors remained “bright” and “did not bleed,” another reviewer happily reports. They had initially bought the pajamas for holiday photos, but their child “actually still wears them now, three months later!”

Multiple families looking for matching pajamas were very happy to find these, which are sold individually in a wide range of sizes. “So soft we wear them all year long!” enthuses one reviewer who is a self-proclaimed “textile fanatic.” They had bought the pajamas “to get some precious pictures on Christmas, but they are so nice we keep wearing them! We ordered children and adult sizes (XS to XL) and every one had perfect fit and the same high quality.” Another reviewer also mentioned the quality of the material, writing that their 3-year-old is “very picky about certain fabrics touching his skin, but he loves these pajamas.” (They note that the color did run “just a little bit” after a wash in cold water, but “it’s hard to even see it unless you really look for it.”) And a third Grinch-like reviewer, who declares that they are “not a Christmas lover” and usually refuse to dress up in matching holiday pajamas, concedes that they’re “super soft and comfy” and a “soft breathable material.” They even go so far as to begrudgingly admit that they’re “actually looking forward to the stupid family photos now. LOL.”
