There’s a reason why pajamas often fall in the same category as ties or socks during the holidays: Opening them up can be a little underwhelming. But that’s only true when the pajamas are, well, underwhelming. This season, it’s easier than ever to give a sleepwear gift that’ll surprise, delight, and actually get put to good use.
The best pajamas to gift aren’t just warm, cozy, and breathable — they’re also stylish enough that if your recipient is caught wearing them on a Zoom call, it won’t set off a call to HR. Whether you’re looking to track down the coziest hoodie for your sister to wear under her favorite longline coat or a stylish silk set that your mom can wear out of the house, too, shop the coziest sleepwear separates below.
