Christmas is right around the corner and without a doubt, you are going to be celebrating Christmas morning with a cup of coffee surrounding a Christmas tree. You are also going to spend the night before celebrating with a wonderful meal and possibly a midnight mass. To maintain the Christmas spirit all through the evening, you should consider giving pajamas as a gift and opening them late on Christmas Eve.
I recently purchased two amazing pairs at Nordstrom, one for me and one for my amazing husband, James (previously featured on the blog). We actually opened them early because I wanted to make sure that he would wear them while we were traveling for the holidays. I also thought it was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit because have been so busy, we have barely even decorated or made cookies.
I looked for flannel sets because they are warmer and softer than their silk counterparts. Luckily, Nordstrom is currently selling sets for both men and women that include a top and a pant. I picked a lively and bright red, evoking scenes of sitting by a fire in a snowy cabin in the woods on a romantic Christmas morning.
My set comes with a button down (more of a snap down) and elastic waisted pants. These are perfect for eating Christmas morning sweets and hot chocolate while relaxing with your family. They have also been incredibly warm and comfortable while lounging around my house and sleeping the night away.
For James, the sets include a pair of flannel pants and a regular cotton T shirt. This can be nice because he tends to be hot in the evening. However, the first comment he made when I brought them home was "mine do not have a flannel shirt". He still enjoys them none the less and has been wearing them around our home.
No matter what your opinion is on opening Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning, festive pajamas are always a great choice. They give you a fresh, new pair of clothing to wear for the morning and ensure that you are perpetually comfortable.
Here are a few beautiful sets we are recommending for this holiday season!
