There is a great new clothing company that is outfitting my kids this winter: Primary. I love their classic and straightforward designs, as well as their affordable price points.  And this holiday season, you can get a FREE pair of pajamas with every $50 purchase.  So get shopping!

If you are looking for more “spiced up pajamas,” then look no further than Gymboree. After washing six and a half years of laundry so far, I have found that Gymboree pajamas don’t shrink and are thick enough to keep kids warm even on the coldest of nights. Even better? They are ALWAYS ON SALE.

After picking up Christmas books and pajamas, you are ALMOST for set for Christmas Eve.  I mean, don’t you need a cozy blanket and puzzle for the family to complete? And don’t forget to drive around and look at these awesome Christmas light displays while in your cute and cozy jimmies!

Happy Holidays!

    Who could resist Christmas books and PJs this holiday? Definitely not me! I love it! It reminds me to cozy up in the fireplace and read a good Christmas story to my niece and nephews. Thanks for sharing your post. It just reminded me one of my family’s favorite holiday traditions!

    A great Christmas book and some awesome holiday pajamas are going to be a must this year! Without our traditional white Christmas decor on the grass and streets, we need some festive pj’s and classic lit to save our Christmas Eve! Weather notwithstanding, I can’t wait until the Eve arrives though, and it is going to be beautiful.

      Since we are Polish, Christmas Eve is our big holiday…and being comfortable and surrounded by great books is a wonderful way to celebrate!

    I have never thought to give my kids special pajamas for the holidays or even purchase special pajamas for them for the occasion. It is always so cold here in Chicago during the holidays that we are usually bundled up in heavy sweatshirts and socks.

    As a child, my mother always did PJs on Christmas eve. It was one of my favorite traditions, and I still want a new pair of PJs every Christmas. If I ever have kids, a tradition I’ll keep up as well. PJs for each, and a movie for all to share and watch on the eve of Christmas.

    We dont really have any christmas eve traditions but with MOH they open presents the night before christmas and then spend christmas morning at church and lunch cooking up storm. I do however love getting new Pajamas whenever I can.

    What a fantastic opportunity! I grew up loving A Charlie Brown Christmas and have since passed that along to my children and grandchildren. I just know they’d love some free jammies and a good book! 🙂

    I love a lot of these books. Christmas books are one of my favorite traditions. I love to read them to the kids on Christmas eve. It really helps with the spirit of Christmas.

    The Small One and The Crippled Lamb are my two must have books for Christmas time! They are both about animals who have important roles with the Baby Jesus and reduce me to tears every time!

    What great book choices! I still haven’t gotten our Christmas PJs yet but I will need to look into these for sure because I am obviously running out of time…LOL
