Couples Family Fun Holiday Pajamas Review


MBE partnered with Shinesty for this post

Pajamas that are fun, not serious

There's nothing like nice, cozy pajamas to keep you and your loved ones warm during the colder months. The problem is comfortable PJs usually mean you're just sleeping in clothes you wouldn't be caught dead in outside of bed. Or worse -- gasp -- we're talking about ugly, bulky, scratchy and/or just plain old boring sleepwear.

Shinesty Festive Fun Holiday Family PJs

Considering the average person spends so much time in bed (about one third of one's life is spent sleeping) why settle for stuffy ho-hum jammies? Instead, this season gift yourself, significant other or your whole family with well-made matching pajamas from Shinesty. There's nothing else out there quite like these fun-loving styles. Not only are they comfy for relaxing and a good night's sleep, they're made to last, are stylish and come in lots of playful festive holiday his and her designs as well as matching pajamas for the whole family: parents, kids and even the family dog and cat.

The holiday Lincoln Log Love Daddy (and Love Lady) pajamas you see here in a fun and festive Christmas red and green plaid pattern are both my hubby and my favorite new PJs, replacing our plain old (yawn) matching, threadbare flannels. Use the Shinesty tags which come with the top and bottom like I did to create a pair of unique holiday earrings to complete your look. This very together outfit is also perfect to wear to the airport at 2 am in the morning to pick up your college student who is home visiting college. Yes, I really did that and you can do the same thing.

Holiday Adult Pajamas

Remember Lincoln Logs -- those tin canisters filled with red wooden logs and green roof slat building blocks we would dump out on the floor, then use to build log cabins when we were kids? Inspired by that iconic and nostalgic creative toy we both grew up with, the happy vibe of these pajamas definitely stirred up fond childhood Lincoln Log memories of our childhoods growing up on opposite coasts -- recollections which the Huzz and I had never shared with each other before.

Not only are these new pajamas cheery and light-hearted, they are super comfortable thanks to the stretchy easy-to-wash and wear polyester-spandex blend fabric they're made with which has the feel of shiny silk; they're also much lighter weight than flannel but just as warm and cozy. Ever since these Shinesty PJs arrived on our doorstep, just wearing them makes me feel smile.  Actually, every night I look forward to putting these comfortable jammies on when it's time to wind down, whether to read, watch a video, or build with Lincoln Logs which is really relaxing and therapeutic.

Shinesty Holiday PJs

Designed by Allie T. in Boulder, Colorado, Shinesty's Lincoln Log Red Plaid pattern features a pullover Henley-style neckline with buttons, chest pocket, a remote control pocket on the upper left sleeve (also roomy enough to hold those log pieces), a hidden pocket in the sleeve cuff for small items and love notes, as well as side slits at the hemline for added comfort while sitting or lying down. These jams also have a really unique touch: a button at each side to create an optional kangaroo style snack pouch which, lucky for me, comes in handy for keeping some wood parts closeby when I'm in the mood to build another mini log structure.

While the tops for this style are basically the same for men and women, except for sizing, the pull-on bottoms vary slightly. Both men's and women's sport deep side pockets as well as no-roll elastic waist bands with multiple channels of stitching for comfort and leg cuffs at the bottom.  The only difference is that the men's version has a button fly front while the women's style does not.

Shinesty Matching Family Holiday PJs

Sold separately, both men's and women's adult pajama tops ($39.99) and bottoms ($59.99) are constructed of 95% polyester, 5% spandex soft and stretchy material. Like the wide variety of other winter holiday themed pajama patterns in their collection, the Shinesty styles you see us wearing for this review are available in men's (S-XXL) and women's (XS-2X) sizes. 

To make every day and night more fun, Shinesty has a variety of other whimsical matching day wear and sleepwear pieces for adults, kids, and pets. Depending on the fabric pattern these range from kids PJs, adult nightshirts and caps to women's and girl's skirts/dresses/pants; men's and boys pants and suits; men's ties and bow ties; baby onesie sleepers; dog and cat clothes, to you never know what else. You won't believe it, you just have to visit to see what they have for yourself.
