By Brigitt Earley

When the weather chills to the bone, there's nothing quite as comforting as cozying up in the best flannel pajamas, turning on the latest streaming phenomenon, and staying put for the night—or even the whole weekend.

Sure, your go-to leggings and oversized sweatshirt are fit for lounging around, but you can stave off feelings of cabin fever by totally leaning into the at-home experience. We’re talking buttery-soft flannel pajamas, a plush throw blanket, a festive glowing candle, and the winter cocktail of your choice (hot buttered bourbon or mulled wine, perhaps?).

Today's sleepwear flannels aren't at all frumpy—and options abound: from sweet shorts to fitted joggers to wrap-style robes to, of course, matching tops and bottoms. There are even some cute gift sets, complete with matching sleep masks to help you catch more z's, in the mix. No matter what look you gravitate toward, we’ve rounded up the best options out there. Ahead, the softest flannel pajamas to live out your hygge dreams this winter.

It doesn't get much more classic than this red field check by Lands’ End. The company is known for its crazy-soft offerings, and these pajama pants don't disappoint—the flannel is brushed inside and out for extra warmth.

Some sleep shirts overtake the body, but this one has a contrasting V-neck and a high-low hemline that helps add some shape. It's still just as cozy, thanks to its soft cotton construction. Bonus: This option has life beyond your couch—it looks très chic layered under a chunky sweater.

This set, which includes a sleep shirt, pants, and an eye mask to match, is ripe for gifting this holiday season. Just make sure you buy one for yourself. Reviewers say the trio is "perfect in every way." It's soft and warm, and fits great, to boot.

A tartan pajama set you can easily live in all year round, at least according to many happy reviewers who note how this set makes even the most mundane tasks feel sophisticated.

Flannels may traditionally come in buffalo-check prints, but you’ll love the cheery color palette of these blue-and-white-striped pants. They provide plenty of warmth but are cropped at the ankles to lend just a little bit more style to the loungewear look.

This nightgown provides all the comfort of roomier options but looks more like a sleep shirt for those who run on the hotter side. Reviewers say it strikes the perfect balance, sitting nicely on the body but also providing enough give to easily move around. Psst: It's part of a matching family set, so you can get one for everyone—and then snap that keepsake photo.

A little more playful than your average flannel pajamas, this two-piece set features a cute hearts and stars print. But what you’ll really love is how plush the material actually is. Also nice: The waist is elastic instead of tied to make the pants easier to slip on and off.

It should come as no surprise that the brand that manufactures some of the comfiest T-shirts and sweaters around also has great loungewear. This flannel pajama set is made of Rails' signature breathable flannel and comes in a muted pink and blue color scheme that's appropriate for all seasons.

Meet the newest iteration of flannel PJs: the sleep jumpsuit. Step into this adult onesie, and prepare to be amazed. It's soft on the skin, roomy enough to move around in, and undeniably cool.

Here's an affordable option that looks elevated enough for Christmas morning. This tartan pajama set is especially good for those who live in warmer climates but still want that festive vibe. The set looks just like a traditional flannel but is made of a more breathable midweight cotton. Reviewers say it's exceptionally cozy, but they recommend sizing down, since the set does run large.

Looking for something really fun? These sky-blue pajamas have a lively martini glass print and adorable "extra dirty" embroidery accents on one of the cuffs.

If allover flannel is a little too sweat-inducing for you, consider this two-piece set, which features snug flannel on the bottom and thermal cotton knit on the top. Reviewers say it's perfect for lounging, soft, comfortable, and true to size. Plus, the pants have pockets—who doesn't love pockets?

This plaid sweatshirt-style top walks the line between pajamas and casual wear, meaning it's perfect for lounging around the house but will also look good layered under a jacket on errand runs.

If you're looking for longevity, this lightweight fleece comes in a moodier brown color palette that will extend well past the holiday season. And since it's a boxier unisex cut, you can get a matching set for your partner too.

Part animal print, part floral, there's no doubt this set is snazzier than your average flannel. It even has the words "party animal" printed inside the cuff for a special little surprise. And because the pajamas come in a set that includes the top, pants, and a headband, it happens to make the perfect holiday gift.
