Here at The Pajama Company we got our wish and yes, Wednesday was a Snow Day. Streets were quiet with the exception of snowplows. Stores were closed, schools were closed, town hall and even the DMV closed early with snow falling fast and furious. For us, a Snow Day reflects the feeling we get from pajamas everyday. It’s about taking a deep breath and learning how to lounge. It’s about putting the brakes on for a moment and enjoying that 2nd cup of coffee or the next chapter of the book you can’t put down or the latest gossip in US magazine. Snow Days are February’s way of giving us all a day off, giving us all a much needed “Pajama Day.” For kids, a Snow Day will be forever etched as a wonderful memory of childhood. Nothing compares to the exhilaration of hearing the news that school has been canceled. It’s a pure happiness. It’s the gift of a day of freedom, a day to do what you love. Pajamas and Snow Days just go together. Check out our great collection of pajamas for men, women and kids to get you through this winter and tell us how you spent your much needed “Snow Day.”
Love Today…Put your pajamas on and celebrate you!
With winter snowstorms brewing across the nation and snow already piling up in the mid Atlantic and Midwest, it’s time to celebrate Snow Days! How happy kids are to awake to news of a snow day. Yes, stay in pajamas and chillax! That amazing feeling to know that the day will be a day of lounging and fun. All of us at The Pajama Company love, love, love snow days. To everyone stranded we say….keep those pj’s on and settle in for a little bit of much missed lounging. In pajamas, everything is just a little bit nicer, a little bit easier. Homework…no problem. Conference call…no problem. We love life in pajamas. It’s just better.
Today we are introducing our first ever sale of Valentine’s Day Grab Bags. These specialty packages come with small gifts and instructions on how to share the holiday of love with the whole family.
“Valentine’s Day isn’t just about treating that one special person,” says The Pajama Company founder and president Ellie Badanes. “At the Pajama Company we say you should share the holiday with all the people you love.”
The Grab Bags are modeled after Ellie’s family tradition and are designed to be shared through an activity for a family or group of friends.
“Each person takes a turn closing his or her eyes and picking something out of the grab bag,” says Ellie. But there’s a catch: the picker then has to decide who else in the group should get that gift.
“It’s a great way to honor all the people you love and help everyone feel special this Valentine’s Day,” says Ellie.
The Pajama Company is offering three options of Grab Bags priced $50, $75 to $100. Each come with a selection of books, chocolate and accessories all wrapped in a specialty Valentine’s Day pillowslip. Start with our bag and top it up with more goodies you know your friends and family will love. Maybe a favorite magazine, candy bar, card game, starbucks, subway or itunes card. Maybe a cd or dvd, maybe a yo yo. Make your Grab Bag perfect just for you and your friends and let the Valentine’s Day fun begin.
Check out our Be My Valentine section which is jam packed with goodies perfect for your sweetie.

The Pajama Company, a leading online sleepwear retailer, is pleased to announce it is now selling pillowcases from Snooze City Designs. The colorful graphic pillowcase sets feature creative designs, photographed images, and fun phrases when the two cases are placed together.
Ellie Badanes, founder and owner of The Pajama Company, said the brand perfectly fits with the goal of her company: making lounging fun.
“At the Pajama Company we believe no part of your life should ever be dull, your bedroom included! These pillowcases jazz up the most important room in your house, making it fun, unique and a little silly,” says Ellie.
Snooze City’s Michael Azria and Derek Mosher launched their line of “the world’s hippest pillowcases,” as they describe them, in 2007 “to take plain existing products, and to add a fun and modern element to them,” they said. Since then, the pillowcases have been featured in Teen Vogue, People Magazine, Life & Style and Nylon.
“They make the perfect gift,” says Ellie. “The aviator sunglass design would be a great fit for a fashionista, the rocker will love the ‘plugged in’ set of a guitar and amp, and the ‘pass out here’ cases would be a hit in any college dorm room.”
The Pajama Company is selling 15 designs for $28 per set. Each set includes two standard size pillowcases made of a super-soft cotton and nylon blend, 210 thread count.

Maybe you would never have considered pajamas as a holiday money saving opportunity…but this holiday season, that is exactly what everyone’s favorite sleepwear is turning out to be. The popularity of pajamas as gifts is climbing, especially with the rising costs of heating and clothing. Many families are lowering the thermostat this winter, resulting in parents and children bundling up at night. As for daily wear, teens and tweens are wearing pajama pants as daywear. (And of course, we at The Pajama Company, love that!)
Many families aren’t able to afford purchasing those “just for fun” gifts, so they are turning to pajamas to fit that need. The wide variety of styles and designs available practically ensure that parents can find pajamas that reflect the personalities and interests of their kids.
In addition to pajamas being a popular item this holiday season, pajama-centric activities are also seeing an increase. Instead of traveling this year, or putting expense into extravagant decorations and meals, families are spending time getting into their pajamas to bake cookies, cakes and other holiday treats.
Parents and kids are donning pajamas for family DVD nights, for family bedtime story nights, for game nights. We love “Pajama” nights. Some popcorn, pizza, warm apple cider and classic holiday movies can make a perfect evening at home. Pajamas are turning into this year’s big holiday money saver and fun maker…who knew?
For many families, Christmas Pajamas is well…just part of Christmas. A lovely tradition. For some it’s Christmas Eve, for some it’s Christmas morning. Matching pajamas for the family make everyone smile. Who doesn’t love seeing Dad in footies? We love the Christmas Eve pajamas because everyone can jump into bed in warm new pj’s, all snugly, anticipating Christmas morning. But, is there a time, maybe sooner on the calender than Christmas Eve when Christmas pajamas might just be a wonderful and unexpected treat? We think yes. Remember the classic song from Mame, “We Need A Little Christmas…Right This Very Minute”! Consider breaking tradition this year and surprise everyone with Christmas pajamas now or if you must wait consider some of these suggestions of when to give pajamas this year:
- On Thanksgiving Day
- On the Day After Thanksgiving (considered to be the beginning of the Christmas Season)
- On the Day of the first Snow of Winter
- On the day you decorate the home for Christmas
- On the day you make those first Christmas Cookies
- On the day you wrap presents
- On the day you take the Christmas card photo (and make it a pajama photo!)
- 12 Days before Christmas
- On December the 1st
- On the day the Christmas Tree is Decorated
- On Saint Nicholas Day (usually December 6th)
The gift of pajamas for Christmas is a wonderful tradition for many. Is it one for your family? This is the perfect time to begin. Kids love to see their parents and grandparents wearing pajamas. It’s just happy.
