Pajama Time! | San Jose Bay Area Glamour & Boudoir Photography
My husband and I left for Hawaii on November 3, which was just a few days after Halloween and was also the day we turned the clocks back. Apparently while we were gone all of the Christmas elves were out and it became full-on holiday season. Itâ€™s time for Christmas music, holiday lights, and red cups at Starbucks. Itâ€™s also this time of year that my 87-year-old Grammy starts pestering everyone in the family for a Christmas list.
Iâ€™ve been making Christmas lists for Grammy ever since I was old enough to circle stuff in a catalogue. As a kid I loved making the annual Christmas list. Grammy loves gift-giving more than anyone I know, and she always bought everything on my list. As an adult itâ€™s a bit more troubling. Whatâ€™s reasonable to ask for? What stores are in a ten-mile radius of her house? What can she buy on QVC?
Each year it seems like pajamas always make the list. Gap Body and Victoriaâ€™s Secret are usually the winners since Grammy has both stores nearby and the prices are fairly reasonable. While pajamas feel like a kind of generic grandma gift, I love getting them. Theyâ€™re not something I typically buy for myself, and having a brand-new pair of Christmas pajamas makes me feel like a kid again.
Here are a few favorites I found while browsing for my Christmas list this year. A couple of these are a bit more of a splurge (Iâ€™m talking to you gorgeous and cozy Anthropologie robe!), which I wonâ€™t be asking Grammy for, but itâ€™s always fun to dream isnâ€™t it?
The flannel slip was actually on my Christmas list last year and I love it. While it seems like an impractical piece of clothing (kind of like that short-sleeved pea coat I own), itâ€™s perfect for Northern California nights. It reminds me of the soft and cozy like the flannel pajamas I had as a kid growing up on the chilly East Coast, but isnâ€™t too hot, and is much cuter.
This year, Iâ€™m going with the Fireside Thermal Sleep-Shirt from Victoriaâ€™s Secret. I like the idea of being warm and cozy on top, but my legs always get hot in bed, so itâ€™s perfect.
