1. Pottery Barn Kid My First Christmas Onesie



For little ones celebrating their very first holiday season, dressing them up (or down, technically) in these Christmas pajamas from Pottery Barn is a sweet way to commemorate the occasion.  The bright red onesie was inspired by Santa’s big red suit, only you won’t find any fuzzy detailing or chunky black belt here; just white embroidery spelling out “My First Christmas” on the tush (too cute!) and a zipper from neck to foot. What’s more, your bundle of joy will stay snug through the crisp winter night as the outfit is made from supersoft cotton knit.

2. Burts Bees Baby Gingerbread Sleep & Play Pajamas



Burts Bees Baby Gingerbread Sleep & Play christmas pajamas set is almost as sweet as a plate of actual gingerbread cookies (almost). Sewn from gentle organic cotton for the comfiest fit, your little one can don these footie pajamas from playtime to bedtime. Unlike the brand’s signature snug sleepers, the loose fitting one piece has been designed with wiggle room in mind, so your baby can enjoy the hours-long festivities comfortably.
