7 of the best Christmas shorts for all the family
This article details over half a dozen of the top options for December wear, from Disney Christmas shorts to don as underwear to women’s Christmas pajama shorts that are ultra snug and comfortable to wear during those hot December nights.
Christmas boxer shorts
Where better to start than with what you put on first? Men’s Christmas boxer shorts are a great way to bring the festive spirit into his life – even if he tends to be a bit ‘bah humbug’ about the whole thing.
There are plenty of Disney Christmas short options to pick from when looking for December underwear. The usual crew of Mickey Mouse characters are a classic, while there are also options based around the Nightmare Before Christmas or Avengers movies.
You can also buy Harry Potter boxer shorts decorated in the Gryffindor house colours or the Marauder’s Map, which are great options for younger guys when you order one of the smaller sizes. Or if you feel like introducing a different kind of magic, how about a pair of Aladdin boxers featuring the famous genie?
You can even buy red Christmas shorts as men’s underwear in a Santa style design, complete with sequinned pouch and a strategically placed white pom pom. Not one to show off to the kids or their grandparents, perhaps.
Christmas PJ shorts for women
Christmas PJ shorts in women’s sizes aren’t of course the only kind available. There are of course long and short Christmas PJs for all the family. But why not shine the spotlight on mum for a while?
Women’s Christmas PJ shorts often come as part of a set, complete with a coordinating or matching top. This is true of the Christmas pajama shorts in women’s sizes from Ekouaer, which come in an astonishing 37 different prints.
As well as matching Christmas PJs shorts and tops in a shirt-style design, the same brand offer plaid shorts in red and black with a strappy vest top or green ones with a checked print and looser t-shirt top.
There are lots of Xmas PJs with shorts to pick from – plus even more options if you include those with long-legged bottoms too.
Men’s Christmas shorts
During a long, hot Australian summer, what every man living close to the coast really needs is a pair of Christmas board shorts he can wear to the beach.
To be honest he might even like to wear them overnight as well, ready to hit the waves first thing in the morning. Assuming they’re dry by the time he retires to bed, that is.
Ptjman are a brand who has the Christmas men’s shorts for beachwear pretty much covered. Their garments come in no less than 10 different colours and designs, so make sure you click on the product listing to see all the available options. Sizes range from small to extra large, so they’re good for teens as well.
There are other brands offering fun, festive designs too. These include pairs featuring a subtle stars and snowflakes pattern, Santa travelling through snowy skies on his sleigh, Ho Ho Ho graphics or a red-nosed cartoon reindeer.
Disney Christmas shorts
There are so many Disney Christmas short options for all the family – and we’re not talking about finding Christmas shorts on Disney Plus to settle down and watch together.
Options for kids to wear include a boys’ Mickey Mouse pyjama shorts set in yellow and blue, a ruffled girls’ Minnie Mouse set in pink or even a set for the baby.
The more grown-up members of the household can choose between the likes of a lacy Disney Princess set for women or boxer shorts featuring Disney movies that would work well as men’s Christmas sleep shorts.
Some children’s Disney shorts would also double up as Christmas shorts for daywear, such as a two pack of lounge shorts or a two piece top and shorts set for girls.
Christmas PJ shorts for men
Our search for men’s Christmas PJ shorts turned up so few options that we had to get a bit more creative when it comes to men’s short Christmas PJs. We love to solve a problem, though, so our suggestion is to search for men’s Christmas pyjama shorts in red.
Red does very well as Christmas PJ shorts available in men’s sizes, as you can pick between plain colours and checked designs that work pretty well as men’s Christmas short PJs. Many products also come in different shades, which you can see when clicking on the product link.
Green, for instance, would also do as Christmas pajama shorts in men’s styles and sizes. The big bonus being that can also wear these all year round instead of just during December.
Any item with a Santa Claus design is bound to be a winner at Christmas, and shorts are no exception. Search for Father Christmas shorts and you get a range of options to consider, including board shorts for men by Ptjman in various colours.
You also get fleece or velvet shorts that are designed more for dressing up than everyday December wear. These often come complete with a matching elf hat or Santa hat to make a complete outfit. It would work as outdoor wear when having a BBQ with friends and family, or you may prefer to reserve it for more intimate moments.
If the latter appeals, you can also buy tight-fitting red shorts to be worn as underwear, though these ultra snug men’s shorts are probably best avoided when he needs to work off the excesses of the festive season!
Another option is to go for Santa Cruz branded shorts – a subtle yet clever twist on the festive theme.
