This year i thought we might all wear christmas pjs on christmas eve..... but am finding it really hard to find some!  
So there are a pair on Peter Alexander but they arent really xmasy and are pretty $$...

i really thought target, kmart etc would have some but they dont have any!

anyone seen any or have any suggestions for myself, ds 3 and dd 18mth (dh has a pair of boxers from last year which is why i want the rest of us to get in on the festive action!!!).

Thanks!

Best and Less have a stand out the front of their local store near me. Certainly kids stuff, not so sure about adults, but keep an eye out for the catalogues from all the stores too in the coming weeks.

I recently researched this very topic, and found that unless you're looking online at US stores, you probably won't find much. It's very disappointing not having them available here, but you will find stacks in speciality Christmas online stores.

I've decided to make my own, I've bought Xmas gem/crystal iron ons from Etsy, bought white t-shirts and  Xmas boxer shorts. Hopefully these will fill my requirement!

A couple of years ago I was having the same problem and ended up asking in all the stores target, big w ect.. And they said they didn't bring them out until closer to Christmas time. I think it was nearly mid december and we had to get character ones for us adults like pooh bear, tweety ect...

But as a PP said best and less have a good range for the kids original.gif

Thanks heaps for the replies!

Will def check best and less out - i do go there often as they have some great girls stuff!!

will check out Big W as well.  

Frannie i considered making some myself but too much going on at the moment to do that!! Not a regular sewer/crafter so would be an effort with just bought, renovating and moving house all in next couple of weeks!!

Perhaps I was to keen so will do the rounds again.

Thanks again for all the comments - never looked for xmas pjs before so didnt even know if the chains would get them at all but glad to know that they will!

When I was in Target a couple of days ago I seen ladies Christmas t.shirts that you could also wear as PJs.

Another idea would be looking on ebay for Christmas iron on transfers that you can put onto a plain t.shirt.

I do the same thing .. the elves usually drop them off on Christmas Eve while we are checking out the Christmas lights, leave them wrapped in front of the tree with an "Open Now" sign original.gif
