Dear Style Clinic

I am looking for some new ideas for pyjamas, both for myself and potentiall­y to give as Christmas presents to my female relatives. What do you suggest?

I give pyjamas every year to my children, and have done since they were little, usually fairly inexpensiv­e but cosy ones from the High Street. They are always well received – in fact, I see more of their Christmas PJs (I take care not to buy specifical­ly festive ones), both over Christmas and the rest of the year, than I do of any of their other gifts.

Anyway, I am always on the lookout. This year, George at Asda has some lovely traditiona­l black silky PJs with an initial on the jacket pocket. They seem only to be for adult women, however, which is a shame, as they cost just £16 a pair and would make great gifts for all the family. Still, they are rather stylish and so well worth checking out.

Also take a look at the Rosie collection at Marks & Spencer, for yourself or for a loved one. The floral print silky pair here is just gorgeous, perfect for lounging about at any time of day or night, and the statement print is contempora­ry yet timeless and suits all seasons – a really good choice for anyone, I think.

Finally, if you want to splash out, go for the ultimate luxury of pure silk. John Lewis has these beautiful loose-fitting silk PJs in a golden olive shade, rather Deco in that colour and with that soft sheeny glow to the fabric. Far too posh to give away, so I reckon those are personal keepers.
