How to Host a Holiday Pajama Party

The holidays are fast approaching, which means Christmas parties galore on the agenda. If you’re hosting, but want to break away from the same old scene—and can’t imagine wearing yet another ugly sweater (us either!)—we have just the thing to add a little more cheer to your celebration. Gather your girlfriends, sisters or out of town guests, pick out a new favorite pair of pajamas and get ready for a fun and cozy night in. Here’s our guide to throwing a wonderfully festive pajama party.


Set the Tone

Just because it’s casual, doesn’t mean you should forgo the little details. Set the scene by sending out invitations with all the pajama party info and ever important dress code! Check out sites like and for inspiration. And be sure to give your guests enough time to find the perfect pajamas.


Look the Part

As host, your attire should be on point (that’s right, faded flannel won’t cut it for this occasion). Treat yourself to a new pair of holiday-exclusive pajamas, matching slippers and an ultra comfy robe for that extra snuggle factor. If you’re in a warmer climate, Cool Nights pajamas have breathable fabric to keep you cool and dry as you entertain. If you’re expecting chilly temps, then Embraceable pajamas will keep you cozy all night.

Make the Menu Memorable

Keep with the theme when it comes to your menu. Bake gingerbread cookies, indulge in hot chocolate or egg nog while watching a holiday classic, and of course ensure the champagne is flowing as you toast to the season. (If you love bubbly as much as we do, you’ll love these and these!)


Wrap Up Cozy Gifts

    I would love to sleep in your pajamas but, they all come in sets. I need an extra large top and a medium bottom. Sooo disappointed. How about selling tops and bottoms separately?

      Hi Dorothy. Good news! Most of the prints that you love in our pajama sets have always come in separates as well. You can buy our classic notch collar pajama top in XS-XXL, and then pick matching pajama pants (or mix and match!) in the same size range, with choices of short, regular and long inseams and ankle length. To fit your sleep style and various climates, you can choose separates in our customer-favorite Cool Nights fabric or cozy jersey, in silhouettes that include short and long sleeves and pants or shorts. There’s something for every body! Visit or your boutique, or call to find just the right pajamas for you 866.768.7662. Sleep is always a great gift for yourself!
