Now that you’ve made your list and checked it twice, it’s time to decide if your dog has been naughty or nice. No matter how well-behaved your pup is, they deserve the very best during the holiday season, and by that, we mean dressing them up in festive outfits and feeding them treats to thank them for putting up with your shenanigans. Here are 11 sets of matching dog and owner pajamas to shop right now.
Last Christmas, I gave my pup, Marshall, my heart — and a bunch of ugly Christmas sweaters for us to match. This time around, we took lounging to the next level by wearing head-to-toe matching pajamas, because all creatures deserve the ultimate comfort. I looped in my friend, Joel, and his adorable Corgi, Barnaby, to model even more slumber-party-ready outfits (or maybe hibernation-all-winter get-ups) and these jammies really defined #squadgoals.
This year, treat yo self and your dog to some premium lounge time with footie pajamas while you let the snow fall. Some of the options are very holiday-specific, while others can be worn year-round. One of them even helps you channel your inner “A” from Pretty Little Liars, so it’s an easy Halloween costume for 2016. You’re welcome.
Deck The Halls In Green And Red
These classic footed pajamas have grips to help you from sliding around on the floor while you dance with your dog, and a "drop seat" velcro fastening in the back to help you with other necessary activities. Human sizes are unisex and run from XS to XL — with plus sizes available to help with #shortpeopleproblems — and pups go from XS to XXL for any size Fido.
Mad For Plaid
This design is great for the holidays, but can also be worn year-round, because plaid is always in. The cozy fleece fabric zips from the neck to above the knee to make it easier to get on and off, and unisex sizes run from XS to 2XL for adults. Pets go from XS to XL, and any of them can be personalized with a name or initials for $10.
Oh, What Fun It Is to Match
Go dashing through the snow — or just around your house — in these non-footed pajamas. The people version is made of fleece and super warm, but the pups get cotton so they don't overheat. Both have coordinating tops and bottoms that are fun to wear, and run from XXS to XXL for ladies and gents and XS to XL for canine pals.
It's A Charlie Brown Christmas
Oh brother! Dance around with the whole Peanuts gang in this festive Charlie Brown Christmas-themed PJ set. It's made of breathable polyester with long-sleeved tops and elastic waists for humans (XS to 3XL) and a nightgown-like length for pups (XS to XXL). It costs $12.99 to personalize any of 'em, with bonus points if you have a dog named Snoopy.
Be A Pretty Little Liar
If you love wearing sweatsuits, these "Pajoggers" will be your new best friend. They're lined inside with warm, soft material, and they're footless so you can wear sneakers with them and go jogging. Who are we kidding? This outfit was just made to pretend to be "A" from Pretty Little Liars.
Get Cozy In A Cottage Print
This print is named Cozy Cottage, and for good reason — just look how comfortable Joel and Barnaby got in this onesie. The fleece is basically like a blanket wrapped around your body at all times, perfect for wearing while watching Netflix and drinking wine all winter long.
Light Up The Night
If you're celebrating Chanukah (or Seth Cohen's favorite holiday, Chrismukkah), this is the only way your dog can play with a dreidel without opposable thumbs. If you're going to wear these for all eight nights, just make sure to wash them a few times throughout the holiday.
Buddy The Elf, What's Your Favorite Color?
Channel your inner Buddy the Elf with these green outfits. They could double as a Halloween costume if you really love Elf, and if you need a second job, just wear the pajamas to your local mall to work at Santa's Workshop.
Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
When the weather outside is frightful, grab your bae and your pup and snuggle up in snowflake pajamas. The warmth and comfort is like a Snuggie multiplied by a million.
Crash An Ugly Sweater Party
Whether you were invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party or not, just wear these pajamas into the next one you hear about. Or show up to work in it around the holidays and see if anyone notices.
Get Paw-sitively Meta
What's better than a dog dressed up? A dog wearing pajamas with dogs on them. These "dapper dogs" are ready for the holidays, and while wearing this flannel set, so will you and your pup. Human and dog sizes run from XS to XL.
