Just buy nice ones. Not sure what folk do with their Xmas ones after Twelfth Night anyway - are they still wearing them at Easter confused!

I don't buy festive pjs but love the mothercare reindeer ones. The reason I don't buy festive is I want them to wear throughout year ans would get twitchy if festive pjs in march ect

I always buy my dc pjs (but they go with the rest of the prezzies).

I don't usually buy Christmas themed ones as I want them to wear them all year.

PJs for just one day?? Why would you?

DMIL can be relied upon to produce PJs for the DCs every year - not Christmassy ones, usually Primark's finest. grin To be worn year-round!

Me! Never heard of this ridiculously twee and sentimental tradition until I joined Mumsnet. My dc get new pyjamas when they need them.

<bah humbug>

I never buy Christmas themed pyjamas, but I always buy new pyjamas for DS for Christmas. The themed ones look a bit daft in April!

Lovely pyjamas for boys in Boots (the soldier ones), JoJo Maman Bebe (love the pirate ones) and the White Company.

Always new pjs on Xmas eve but not Xmas themed. I did it one year and it annoyed me till summer.

Last years were M&S and the bottoms were red tartan so xmassy enough but not overly so.

Last year DS had some Dr Who ones with a fleecy top that he chose himself. In the past he has had sort of Christmas ones... several times the Boots ones which usually have reindeers on, and he has also chosen some penguin ones. He does wear them all year

No I don't either, and I'm another one who hadn't heard of this twee custom until Mumsnet. My DS gets new pyjamas when I find them in a charity shop or are given hand-me-downs as necessary grin.

Dd has new pyjamas, sometimes Christmassy if I manage to get some heavily reduced in M&S the year previously but often not. Even if they are Christmassy she wears them throughout the year until she grows out of them or they fall to pieces.

We just buy winter pyjamas. Christmas ones will only get used for a month and then never used again. Winter ones can be used all winter and the next Christmas.

I buy new pjs at xmas but never xmas themed, i usually try to get them as non festive as possible

OhTheConfusion Tue 16-Oct-12 19:13:08

I always buy new pj's for christmas eve but never festive ones. I got our DD's cute fairy ones, same pattern different pj's as baby and 8. Will look as pretty at easter as they will on christmas eve smile

Last year DD got pjs with a red & white spot trouser-she wore the top (polar bear) over Christmas and a vest top after.
DS gets camoflague/bugs/skulls. Not festive, but new grin

Always buy new pj, but never christmas themed one.

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 16-Oct-12 20:59:17

I always buy new ones but not Christmas ones

I usually buy mine used off e-bay. Started looking now. M&S, Mothercare, John Lewis.

I don't buy pjs for Christmas as I don't expect anyone in my family to wear pyjamas much unless we are in bed, but a previous pyjama-themed thread revealed to me that my attitude to pyjamas and the situations in which others wear them is a bit screwed up.

In a nutshell, why not just buy some plain pyjamas and use some fabric crayons/applique shapes to decorate them with Christmassy things? Could be a Christmas Eve thing to do?

Alibabaandthe40nappies Tue 16-Oct-12 22:25:01

I buy new ones, but not Christmas themed ones. Cannot see the point of buying clothing that can only really be worn once!

Ive never done it but kind of want to this year grin. Maybe I'm becoming more of a big kid in my old age cause I'm getting more excited every year and adding new traditions. It's just a magical time for the kids isn't it.
