First we want to thank Sami, from South Africa, for inspiring us to look for summer Christmas matching family pajamas that are light weight enough to wear in warm climates. Clearly the need for light weight matching family holiday pajamas applies to all countries/continents located in the southern hemisphere including South Africa, Australia, most of South America, but it also includes the thousands of families who choose to celebrate Christmas on vacation in the Hawaiin and Caribbean Islands (think cruises, too) and other warm weather locations. Such a fun challenge!
If you are looking for just the best of the best pajamas rather than a comprehensive guide to all summer Christmas matching family jammies be sure to check out Lightweight Holiday PJs
Summer Christmas Matching Family Pajamas
Family Matching Short Sleeve Christmas Pajamas
NEW! Short Pajamas in Pretty Tropical Prints
Just found Piyama and have already featured them on Instagram (shop @familymatchingeverything) ! Although Piyama is well known for their matching bridesmaid robes and short pajamas, many of the prints are available in children's sizes. They even carry a few prints in men's boxer shorts. Pair the boxers with a white t-shirt and voila – you have pajamas.
It is a little hard to see what we are getting at but these lightweight short pajamas, pictured in gray, come in red checks which is perfect for the holiday season. They also can be monogrammed.
We recently discovered the discount site PatPat and although their selection of short-sleeve Christmas Pajamas is currently rather limited, we never know what new lightweight summer Christmas prints will arrive tomorrow. The reason we are specifically pointing out PatPat is that everything on their site is extremely well priced and they are offering our visitors an extra 15% OFF site wide with code MOMME15. Here's the fine print >> Our contacts over at PatPat highly recommend ordering by November 30th if you want to guarantee delivery before Christmas!
Plus, we always love matching family sports team pjs for the holidays and all year long! We even found some light weight options! Today we are featuring Michigan State (For Ed & Ariel)
Mix and Match Christmas Tees & Christmas Shorts
There are so many cute short sleeve cotton holiday t-shirts so the challenge is finding the perfect Christmas shorts. We love these traditional Christmas fabrics and if you ask nicely and order early you may be able to convince Lisa to sew you a set of Custom Christmas boxers! And if you live in Australia, how fabulous are these aussie-inspired and christmas-themed sleep shorts which come in sizes and patterns for the whole family.
These adorable christmas dog-themed pjs come in shorts for women and men. Again, pair with your favorite holiday t-shirt or even just a classic white or red tee.
A darling Christmas koala is particularly cute with the above Aussie Animals print.
These elf self shirts are flying off the shelves. We envision hours and hours of family fun sitting around he kitchen table deciding who gets what shirt. All the shirts are very similar although there are little difference both in design and price. Here are a our “go to” merchants for elf self shirts >>I’m the Elf | More Elf Self Shirts | Elves on Etsy | And yes, of course they are on Amazon too
Any darling christmas print or solid t-shirt would look great with most of the prints but we particularly like this Christmas light tee with the Christmas lights shorts and these buffalo plaid Christmas truck tees would look great with either the classic red plaid or the Black Christmas truck fabrics.
Although these are not designed or approved as sleepwear for kids, they are adorable.
Year Round Lightweight Holiday PJs
We recently discovered Little Sleepies. Their viscose fabric derived from a bamboo/spandex blend is among the softest, most buttery fabrics we have ever felt. It has incredible stretch, and has an unparalleled range of benefits:
- It's gentle on sensitive skin and eczema.
- It's breathable but also holds body heat. Viscose from bamboo fabric has micro-gaps, which aid in ventilation, meaning they trap cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter to help regulate your little’s body temperature. This means they stay a few degrees cooler in the summer months, and a few degrees warmer in the winter months.
- It's sourced from the bamboo plant, a self-sustainable resource. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth (it can grow 3-4 feet per day without any chemicals or fertilizers), requires very little water and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than hardwood trees.
So basically that is a long way of saying we think these jammies would definitely work in warm weather climates. And we love the prints!
Keep checking back. We will continue searching for more summer Christmas matching family pajamas!
