8 Ways to Rock Your Matching Pyjamas Alone This Year

December 22, 2021

It’s matching pyjamas season; the final hurdle of “God when” us singles need to cross. But fear not. We’ve come up with tips on how you can bypass this holiday tension.

1. Hope for the best

It’s three days until Christmas. Time is still on your side. Call that dispatch rider to deliver the pyjamas to your crush. It may end in disgrace, or they could show up at your doorstep. Just try.

2. Wear the two at once

This weather for two is another excuse to get cozy. So wear both of them. Who will know?

3. Twin with your mother

As long as there’s matching going on, you’re all good. What better way to end the year than a photoshoot with the person that loves you unconditionally?

4. Get your dad involved

If mummy abandons you on this journey, a father’s love is just as sweet to display online. You can also call him to fight the crush that abandoned you. Either way, you win.

5. Stand in front of a mirror

Self-love is the real game changer. Your reflection is all you need to pull that pyjamas off. Just stand there, look cute and take a mirror selfie.

6. Plan a group photoshoot

Na single you single, you no kill person. Invite your boys or girls, or just pick random people off the street. Post it and insert a deep quote on the value of friendship and it’s a wrap.

7. Just end everything

We’re not endorsing violence. But if all else fails, you have to end this trend once and for all. Burn your own first since it didn’t work out. Then ask any couple you see in matching pyjamas to remove it immediately and burn it. 

8. Give up

There’s only so much you can do honestly. We’ll try again next year.
