Christmas is all about bringing people together in fun and memorable ways, and family Christmas pyjamas are becoming more and more popular each year. The whole family wearing matching Christmas pyjamas while unwrapping presents on Christmas morning is a fun novelty experience. Alternatively, they could be fun to wear on a family Christmas break away or on a family movie night whilst snuggled under a heated throw. There are so many family Christmas pyjamas on offer this year. You can go bright and loud, or you can opt for a more subtle approach, picking a print like traditional tartan.

How did we choose our 10 of the Best?

When testing and selecting the best family Christmas pyjamas we considered sizes available, appearance, comfort and value.

Our 10 of the Best lists are compiled by qualified and experienced parenting journalists. They rely on a number of sources, including our independent reviews, testing undertaken during the MadeForMums Awards, and feedback from our home testing panel and Top Testers Club. Each year thousands of products are put through their paces by hundreds of parents across the country on behalf of MadeForMums, to ensure we’re bringing you honest and true reviews and recommendations.

Our list is not an ordered ranking from 1-10, instead it is a carefully selected group of tried-and-tested products, each of which we believe is best for a different situation or requirement. We don't just tell you what is best, we help you discover what is best for your family.
