Our holiday plans include a whole slew of different ways to be a homebody (shocking, we know). Think marathoning the newest season of The Crown, diving into an all-day recipe, and finally, finally making some progress on our bedside reading stack. But staying in doesn’t have to mean your look is a snoozefest—we rounded up some of the softest, most inviting PJs, robes, slippers for curling up on the couch (that are still worthy of wearing in front of some cozy company).
1. Getaway Eye Mask, Ettitude
If your happiest place is deep in a REM cycle, then this is the mask for you. The smooth material is simple an elegant, plus it’s a not-so-subtle way to let everyone from your family to the person next to you on the plane know it’s time to take it down a notch. Two birds, one stone.
2. Waffle Robe, Parachute
Japanese-style waffle knit towels became kind of a thing this year for a reason—they’re extra absorbent and have a casual-chic, lived in vibe. Parachute took the trend up a notch with this robe, which makes the most of the perfectly crumpled texture with a timeless wrap shape. All the better for face mask-and-a glass of wine multitasking, we say.
3. Knit Bedtime Pajama Top, Madewell
No one would blame you for wearing this cute stretch cotton top out with a pair of ankle-cropped denim—but it really shines on a game night when the wind chill is in the negatives. Pick up the matching shorts, or mix things up with your favorite joggers. The forest green shade and contrast trim are an easy win with pretty much everything.
So. Fluffy. These silky, high-pile faux fur slides are the best way to pad around your house in style, and keep chilly toes at bay. The crossover style feels very of the moment, while the extra texture has a bit of an old Hollywood vibe.
5. Gisele Robe, Eberjey
This above-the-knee robe has a kind of elegant loungey energy that works year round, with tonal piping to keep things interesting. It would make a super nice gift for your sister or best gal, and the lightweight texture also makes it great for any cold-weather beach escapes you might be considering.
6. Crop Pajamas, Eberjey
A more femme take on a coordinated sleepwear set from Eberjey, a brand that’s nailed practical, yet still incredibly cute loungewear. The stretch modal material is flowy and light, and it also resists wrinkling, even after a full eight hours of shuteye. Piped trim and subtle details, like the ankle-length pants, keep everything feeling nice enough for hanging out on the couch with a friend, or even having coffee in the kitchen with your in-laws.
Uggs are back, and we’re so happy about it. These suede slides have a sturdy sole than can handle a quick run for more oat milk, with the cuddly shearling texture that won us all over (yes, even early aughts Britney). A super warm workhorse, they’re just right for wearing while you work your way through every recipe in the new Alison Roman cookbook.
8. Classic Spa Set, SNOWE
If you’ve ever aggressively considered snagging a plush robe from your hotel, this is the one for you. The thick, velvety 100% cotton terry is rendered in a few different colors, including a soft charcoal gray, and has a generously sized collar—all the better for snuggling into (or gifting!). Oh, and did we mention it comes with a natural soy candle, scented with Calla Lily and notes of greenery? Cancel your plans, tonight you’re taking a bath.
The company behind the most luxe silk sleep mask in the game, Slip, also offers this soft set designed to upgrade a few different areas of your nighttime routine. Start your evening skincare regimen by pulling your hair back with one of their silk scrunchies, which won’t cause breakage, then slide on that mask and relax on the included Mulberry silk pillowcase. It’s also designed to go easy on your skin and hair—plus, you’ll wake up feeling like royalty.
10. Signaturesoft Plush Upstate Sweatpant, Lou & Grey
Lou & Grey describes this material as feeling like a crazy hybrid between cashmere and a classic cotton sweatshirt, and who are we to argue? The cloud-like feel is truly what you, and anyone you like enough to gift these to, deserves after a long day of adulting, especially if it involved slogging through slush. The casual-cool jogger vibe would also make them a great choice for that holiday flight you’ve got planned.
11. Vintage Pajama Set, J.Crew
Fact: It’s impossible to be sad about winter if you’re wearing this wildly festive set of poplin PJs in a classic tartan. Fire up your favorite Christmas rom com and consider ripping into a bag of marshmallows, because ‘tis the season for never, ever wearing jeans inside your house.
