When do family matching Christmas pyjamas go on sale?

Matching pyjamas for families to wear for Christmas start to go on sale around mid-September to early October. If you want a wide range of sizes and styles to choose from, this is the best time to shop for them.

Having everyone wear the same pyjamas on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is fast becoming a yearly tradition for many households in the UK, especially as it is such a perfect Christmas photo opportunity, but it does mean many styles go out of stock way before December has even arrived.

If you see a style of pyjamas that you like, with all the sizes available for your family, we recommend getting them when you see them so you don't miss out on your chance to snap them up. Also, if you love a seasonal pair of PJ's keep your eyes out for Easter Pajamas around springtime as these are super adorable.

The most popular PJ sets in the last couple of years have come from Eastenders' actor and 'I'm A Celeb' star Jac Jossa's In The Style collaborations, and it's no wonder - her sets are super adorable and make for the ultimate Insta shots.
