Hanukkah Pajamas for the Entire Family


Guess what? It’s not too early to start thinking about Hanukkah! This year, Hanukkah starts on the evening of December 22 and overlaps with Christmas — which means it’s going to be a very multi-faith season for holiday sweaters and pajamas.

I’ve always argued that Hanukkah gear should be just as good and as fun as Christmas gear. I am a huge fan of Hanukkah sweaters — and an even bigger fan of Hanukkah pjs! After all, for a typically home-based holiday that’s all about a jug of oil lasting eight nights, you certainly need some comfy, night-appropriate attire.

Unfortunately, finding a great pair of Hanukkah pajamas isn’t as easy as you’d think. Also, they all look very much alike  — they’re mostly blue (I guess that’s the color of the Jewish people?!), they mostly have menorahs and Stars of David on them (you don’t need stars of David on Hanukkah pajamas! After all, there are no crosses on Christmas pajamas!). Where are the latkes?! Where is the gelt?!

I guess what I’m saying is: I’m happy there are Hanukkah pajamas out there, I just want more.

Nonetheless, we’ve scoured the corners of the internet, and, in the name of journalism, we’ve put together a pretty comprehensive list of all the ones available, including our favorites: matching Hanukkah pajamas for the whole family!

So put on your pajamakkahs —  it’s almost time for Hanukkah.

Hanukkah pajamas for babies and kids:



Carter’s Baby Pajamas (Amazon)

Carters have two pair of Hanukkah pajamas available on Amazon for babies up to 24 months. They’re really adorable and simple. And, most important: they both have dreidels on their butts. Perfect for baby’s first Hanukkah!

The Llamakkah pun — which combines Hanukkah with the South American mammal — has become a modern staple when it comes to Hanukkah gear, from cards to sweaters. No one really knows where it originated, but as a lover of both llamas and Hanukkahs, I am here for it! This PJ set here has an ugly sweater-inspired llama print on it, and it comes in both baby and kids sizes. The adorably goofy expression on the llama is a major plus.

Llamukkah Pajamas from ChosenThreadsApparel (Etsy) 

More llamas! Hurrah! These pajamas are a bit more intricate, with a llama print on the bottoms and an adorable llama on the top. You can get a boys or a girls version — the boy (?!) llama has glasses and a bow and the girl (?!) llama has a bow in her ear and a scarf. I do believe neither are scientifically accurate portrayal of male and female llama, but they are pretty darn cute!

Light Up the Night Pajamas (Etsy)

These kids pajamas are so cute! They’re not blue (bonus points!), have colorful menorahs and say “light up the night!” Topical and cheerful!

Jewish Museum Hanukkah Dreidel Pajamas

When it comes to design, these pajamas from the Jewish Museum takes the cake. Tasteful, pretty, and features an embroidered dreidel on it. It comes in sizes 6 months to 14 years. We approve!

ColorMe Pajamas from ModernTribe

A pajama and an art project — in other words, an ideal Hanukkah present! These pajamas come with a set of fabric markers you can use to color the dreidels on the shirt (or wherever else your budding artist decides to draw, I guess?). They come in sizes 3 to 12.
These colorful kids pajamas pays tribute to one of the best sub-genres of Hanukkah merchandise out there: the dinosaur menorah.


Sara’s Prints Unisex Kids Long John Pajamas & Sara’s Prints Girls’ Whirl and Twirl Long Sleeve Nightgown (Amazon)

These white pajamas have a lovely, classic print — and especially love the twirly girl’s nightgown. Who doesn’t love a good nightgown? Nobody!


Hanukkah Pajamas with applique (Etsy)

These lovely pajamas have cute, striped bottoms and an applique menorah on the tops. For an extra $10, you can have them custom embroidered with your child’s name. How fancy!

Hanukkah pajamas for grown-ups:


Happy Llamakkah Women’s Pajamas from ModernTribe

Don’t worry, adults who want their llama pajamas! We’ve got you! While these are a bit pricey, coming in at $68, they are absolutely adorable and are made out of cozy flannel. Plus, unlike any item of clothing you buy for your kids, these should last you a while.


Adult Flapjack Onesie by LazyOne (Amazon)

Sometimes, you just want to feel like a baby again — that’s what adult onesies are for. This ridiculous onesie also has a flapjack. We just had to include it in this list.

Matching family Hanukkah pajamas:


Macy’s Matching Hanukkah PJs

These adorable pjs have dreidels and menorahs on the pants, and a shirt that says “Let the good times roll.” (Get it?! Like a dreidel? Spinning is the same as rolling, right? Right?) There’s even a cute Hanukkah bandana for the four-legged “child” in your life.


Target Matching Hanukkah PJs

“Eight nights, eight lights” is the catchy rhyming inscription on these matching family pajamas from Target, which have cozy looking fleece pants adorned with dreidels, gifts, Jewish stars, and menorahs. There’s a footie for the baby or toddler in your life, and a full pajama for Fido. Sweet!

Matching Hanukkah Pajama from Pressed4Fun (Etsy)

$40 for a set of pajamas is a bit steep, but you can customize each set with the inscription “shine bright for eight crazy nights with [insert your family name here].” These cozy pajamas come with both short sleeves (we’ve got you, hot sleepers!) and long sleeves, though the long sleeves will set you back an extra $5.


Hanna Andersson Eight Nights Matching Pajamas

They’re warm. They’re blue. They have snowflakes, menorahs, and dreidels — with no silly slogans or Hanukkah puns in sight. Hannah Andersson’s matching family holiday pajamas provide all the classics, and sometimes that’s all you want.


MJC International Family Matching Hanukkah Fleece Pajama Sets(Amazon)

These pajamas come in every size, and they have all kinds of cute Hanukkah-related puns on them. Our favorite is the kids’ pajamas that say “Love you a latke.” Aw!
