The Best Holiday Pajamas for Toddlers

The Best Holiday Pajamas for Toddlers

We always get holiday photos of Aiden done. It’s a great opportunity to track his growth and the photos make a sweet gift. Last year our photographer did a pajama holiday photo shoot and the pictures came out so cute (as you can see in this post). So, we are doing it again this year! The hardest part of the holiday photos is picking out the perfect outfit so I was on the hunt for the cutest picture-worthy pair. I figured I would share my research with you and rounded up the best holiday pajamas for toddler photos.

The best holiday pajamas for toddler photos:

Hanna Andersson

Hanna Andersson is known for having the best holiday pajamas for families. This year, we love the gnome sweet gnome collection. In fact, we got this sleeper, these slippers, and this hat for Aiden’s holiday photo shoot this year. I can’t wait to share the pictures! A close second option was this classic stripe pajama set.  Watch for deals all holiday season!


Gap has the cutest flannel PJ sets that would be really cute for classic holiday photos. I love this pattern.  If you have a little one who loves fire trucks (like ours does) and are into the fair isle trend this pj set is perfect! Gap is offering 40% off everything right now, so it’s a great time to buy — plus I am sure they will have more deals all holiday season.

Pottery Barn Kids

Another classic look with the option of personalization with a monogram. I love these Heritage Santa Flannel Pajamas. These Tartan Plaid Pajamas are really cute too.

Burt’s Bees Baby

I always love the Burt’s Bees Baby pajamas. They are adorable and affordable. This year they have lots of really cute options for the whole family. My favorite collections are the candy cane stripe and the buffalo check.


Nordstrom always has great holiday pj options for toddlers. I love these thermal fitted fair aisle pajamas. I also love this Twas the Night Before Christmas set which includes pajamas and a book. The book would make a great prop for photos (this is also a great gift idea)!

Old Navy

Old Navy is one of my go-to’s for pjs and they have some adorable holiday options. My favorite is this buffalo plaid printed sleeper. If you are doing a family PJ photoshoot Old Navy also has coordinating family pajama options.

Cuddle Sleep Dream

Technically, these aren’t pajamas, but they can definitely pass as pajamas (and are so cute). We used them for Aiden’s holiday pictures last year. I love that they serve double duty because you can wear them day or night!


Target has really upped their pajama game this year.  They have tons of options for the whole family — even your dog can get in on the pajama action! If I have to pick favorites, I love these holiday bears, these moose collar pajamas, and this adorable plaid pajama set from the Hearth and Hand collection.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
