Christmas Eve Pyjamas - Our Festive Tradition

One tradition that we have at Christmas, is the giving of festive pyjamas to the children on Christmas Eve. Little ones will be happy to go to bed in their new pj's knowing that Santa will arrive once they are sound asleep and they will be waking up to a Christmas stocking at the end of their bed.  The kids always jump into our kingsize bed on Christmas morning, where they take turns to open their stocking presents, still wearing their brand new nightwear.  It's a tradition that we really enjoy and I love seeing my children on Christmas Eve all dressed up ready for bed in their Christmas pyjamas knowing there is just one sleep until Christmas Day!

This Christmas, Freddy has been sent a really cool pair of seasonal pyjamas from Mothercare.  I was really impressed with the design of the older boy's pj's this year.  Mothercare has gone away from the cutesy image of Christmas and gone for something most boys will really love - a big truck a.k.a. a snow plough,  shovelling away the winter snow.  This makes them perfect for the whole of the winter season and not just for Christmas Day.


As you would expect from the Mothercare brand, the snuggle fit pyjamas are beautifully made using quality cotton rich material, which is soft and breathable. The snow plough design is appliqued onto the top, and the theme is continued on the trousers as a repeated snow plough pattern.  The design is really eye-catching with the bright yellow of the snow plough contrasted against the blue background.  The sizing is good with plenty of room for comfort.

The Snow Plough pyjamas are available for children from 12 months to 6 years and they are priced at £10/11.  There are lots of other designs available featuring robins, penguins, reindeer and other festive favourites, in sizes suitable from birth.

Look out for a 'buy one get one half price offer' on selected sleepwear until December 10th, and join me in my festive Christmas Eve Pyjamas Tradition!
