Matching Footed Pajamas: A Fun Family Holiday Gift Idea


Visitors: 596

Would you like to start an amusing and practical Christmas tradition in your family? Consider buying your family matching footed pajamas. Wearing matching footed pajamas may seem rather odd when you first consider it. But many families are now wearing matching footie pajamas. If you think about why, it really does make sense.

For years, many families have shared the tradition of wearing regular matching pajamas for the holidays. Wearing matching pajamas makes family members feel closer together, much like wearing a family uniform. But it was often the case that the younger members of the family would wear footed pajamas while the bigger members of the family would dress in the non-footed type of pajamas. Why? Until lately, footed pajamas were only offered in sizes for children. Since some of the family members were wearing footed pajamas and others were wearing non-footed pajamas the pajamas were similar but not exactly matching.

Approximately fifteen years ago, several companies began manufacturing matching footed pajamas in sizes for youths and adults. With that development, it was possible to dress the entire family in footed pajamas. Families started to switch from non-footed matching pajamas to matching footie pajamas.

Initially, some families switched to matching footie pjs just for laughs. Children enjoyed seeing their parents wearing pajamas which were usually worn only by children. But once parents actually owned footed pajamas, many of them realized why they liked footed pjs so much as children. Footed pajamas are the warmest pajamas around. The warmth and the originality make footie pjs not only fun but practical too.

Why are matching footie pajamas practical? Almost 10% of the population have problems with circulation and suffer from cold feet. People with cold feet are miserable and many people with circulatory problems endlessly seek a solution for it. Many adults with circulatory problems find that they are happier sleeping in adult footie pajamas. The warmth generated by the rest of the body travels to the toes and brings the temperature of the feet to the same temperature as the rest of the body. Further families find that when the whole family is wearing matching footie pajamas they can turn down the heat and save some money. Dressed in exactly the same pjs as the children, parents understand how warm their babies are because if the parents are warm, then it is very likely that the kids are warm as well.

Matching footed pajamas may have started out as a fun family gift idea. But once parents buy footed pajamas for themselves and their kids, many parents decide to make matching footie pajamas a tradition that the entire family can enjoy forever.
