Wearing festive outfits with your family for Christmas is a fun activity to bond over and make the holiday season even more special. If you’re looking for cute matching pajama sets for the whole family without breaking the bank, then check out these tips!
One of my favorite things about Christmas is searching high and low for the most adorable (and affordable) matching family pajamas. Who wouldn’t love opening gifts while looking as cute as can be for family pictures?
Why is it so much fun to “decorate” your kids with festive holiday attire? And I won’t lie, I love a good Christmas onesie or flannel gown myself.
It’s easy to get carried away with any holiday spending, and the hunt for the perfect set of matching Christmas pajamas is no different.
Here are a few of my best tips to save money on Christmas pajamas, and still get the whole family matching for that perfect holiday photo!
How to get the best deals on Matching Family Christmas Pajamas
Wait for Sales
One thing I’ve noticed in the last several years is that there is almost ALWAYS a sale. This is especially true for large retailers like Walmart, Target, and Old Navy (which are 3 of my absolute favorite places to shop).
If you think you’ve found the perfect set of matching family Christmas pajamas, but they’re not on sale, KEEP LOOKING! I promise they will be on sale in the next couple of days, and if not, you’ll be able to find something similar for a better price.
The best time to look for a deal on holiday pajamas is NOW. Don’t wait until a couple of weeks (or days) before Christmas. Not only will it be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for, but you also risk a chance of everything being sold out, or even worse having to pay HUGE rush shipping fees to get it to you before the big day.
I’m writing this in October, and the holiday sales are already running strong, so now is the time to check out the deals and grab your family pajamas!
Use Rakuten to get Cash Back
Almost every place I shop during the holidays is part of the Rakuten cash-back program. There is absolutely no fee or cost to use Rakuten, simply sign up here and add the browser extension to your Google Chrome so you don’t forget to use it when you shop.
Shop Thrifted (mix & match)
Nothing can ever beat good ‘ol thrifting. With all the stuff in your local thrift shops, you’re sure to find cute pieces to add to your matching holiday pajamas that are also good in quality too. There are a couple of organic cotton fabrics available for men and women and for kids as well.
Of course, you won’t find the exact matching pieces for each family member, but if you don’t mind mixing and matching the outfits together, this won’t be much of a big issue for you. Just stick to a theme or color and you’re good!
