All I want for Valentine’s is a cute pair of pyjamas (any of these 12 will do)

All I want for Valentine’s is a cute pair of pyjamas (any of these 12 will do)

Nice pyjamas are the new going out top.

I’m not sure that this needs saying in 2021, but just in case, please don’t buy lingerie as a Valentine’s gift.

Unless lingerie is your “thing”, then I’m going to brush everyone with the same broad stroke and say that buying lingerie for a loved one is just a bit weird. While nice lingerie can make a person feel incredibly sexy, if it’s not pin-perfect it will make them feel the exact opposite. So unless you are absolutely sure (as in, they sent you the link and the correct sizing kind of sure) just don’t do it.

Instead, I’m going to suggest a very sweet pair of pyjamas. I know that my sweats and fleecy jammies have not been the most appealing thing, plus the lack of seeing other people means my personal hygiene has not been tip-top – it’s winter, I have nowhere to go and frankly the expectation to shave is steeped in historical misogyny, okay?!

So while looking nice would be nice, I’m not that interested in actually getting dressed and comfort is still the number one priority. So if my loved one should perchance stumble across this article (perhaps in a WhatsApp message I will send him), I’d gratefully accept a pair of these. 

Comfort is Queen

From slouchy and snug fits to soft cotton and relaxed linens, you’ll find your dream sleep set here, whether you run hot or cold through the night.

Silky Sultry

If you are looking for something a little bit spicier, here are some more lingerie-adjacent options.
