If you’re a regularly Instagram user then chances are you have seen the festive pyjamas featured in this post popping up all over your feed lately. The PJ’s are part of the Matalan #GetYourStripes product range which also includes cosy socks, a stripy mug and even a stripy outfit for our four-legged friends! The range was released this year to help raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and 100% of profits from the Get Your Stripes range will go to the charity to help them continue the amazing work they do. Matalan has been teaming up with Alder Hey for the past 3 years and has raised an incredible 1.3 million for this fantastic charity.
As well as creating the range of Get Your Stripes products, Matalan decided to throw the Biggest Pyjama Party Ever this year. This took place on the 22nd of November when Matalan held a very special pyjama party at Alder Hey, alongside lots of families hosting their own party at home – including us.
To help us throw our pyjama party we were sent a lovely selection of goodies including a pair of #Getyourstripes PJ’s each (seriously the most festive jammies out there), a super cosy blanket, everyone’s favourite classic game – Twister, a snack bowl and popcorn, stripy mugs and hot chocolate, tasty Heroes chocolates and some face masks for a little pampering.
We all wore our festive jimjams, played games, had a little pampering session, watched ELF (such a great film), enjoyed some hot chocolate and spent a lot of time laughing and enjoying each others company.
It’s so easy to get caught up in life, being busy and forgetting to take time to just relax and spend time with family and friends, because those are the things that are really important. The Pyjama party has really reinforced this and I will be making an effort to spend more time with family and friends, especially in the run up to Christmas.
If you would like to throw your own Pyjama party (and I’d highly recommend you do!) then head over to the Matalan website where you can find game ideas, party tips, fun downloadables and of course you can pick up your own striped PJ’s too!
We had such a lovely evening getting involved with the Biggest Pyjama Party Ever and I can’t wait to see what next year has in store.
