Wine and pajamas… That pretty much sums up my holiday season goals. At least, after I get my little elves to bed each night.
After a long stressful day of working and mommying (oh, and Christmas shopping!), there’s no better feeling than putting on a fresh, clean, and cozy pair of PJs and curling up on the couch.
My husband usually gets home shortly after the kids go to sleep (how convenient!), so I like to open up a bottle of Cabernet, slip on one my go-to Soma jammies, and read a book or watch some guilty-pleasure television—if there’s a holiday special on, that’s even better!... And just like that, I go from harried housewife to mellowed-out mama. If only we had a fireplace—now, that would take it over the edge.
I’ve written about my love for pajamas a few times here on Momtrends. They’re my ultimate indulgence, my absolute weakness, and my favorite shopping splurge. I always buy a few new pairs around holiday time (usually featuring festive prints), and this year I’ve found the most deliciously comfortable, sleek, and chic sleepwear sets from Soma. I’m so in love, I honestly may never have to purchase another pair again.
Made with a jersey knit, Soma’s Embraceable pajama sets fit beautifully and feel sensational. I have these in the classic Frost Navy and Damsel Ivory prints, and I’m absolutely obsessed. They will be my staple holiday gifts for friends and family—because, who wouldn’t want something so simply luxurious?

The limited-edition Sensuous Scroll Notch Collar Pajamas in Ruby are another foolproof option. These drape like a dream and are subtly sexy too. (Seriously, my husband is accustomed to my usual not-so-flattering flannel jammies; so when he came home and saw me wearing these, he was all “Merry Christmas to me.”) Of course, the deep red color is a fun nod to the happy holiday season. They also feature Soma’s exclusive Cool Nights fabric, which keeps you cool and dry, and retains its shape and silky look—even after washing. Note to all hubbies: Get these for your wife—in every color. You will both thank me.
Above all else, though, you have got to feel (and then buy… and then gift!) the Embraceable Luxe Robe. I put this on every morning, when there’s a chill in the air, and it’s like being wrapped in a plush, yummy cocoon. It takes all my willpower not to climb back in bed... But, instead, I rally, get myself a steaming hot cup of coffee, and warm up for a few blissful moments while daydreaming about fast-forwarding the clock to bedtime. It’s going to be another long, hectic day—with those two energetic elves! Pajama hour can’t come quick enough.
