Breaking the exciting news to family and friends can be one of the best moments in your pregnancy. If the timeline matches, you can tell your family at Christmas, which makes it that much more special.
We told our family that we were pregnant at Christmas because it was easy to gather everyone together. Since everyone is already giving gifts, we could make all of our gifts based on our pregnancy announcement.
If you are also thinking of doing your pregnancy announcement at Christmas, then here are some great Christmas pregnancy announcement ideas such as ornaments, stockings, onesies and cards.
Announce your Pregnancy with a Christmas Card
A simple and classic way to share your pregnancy with family is to use a card. Here are some awesome Christmas cards and some really unique cards such as scratch offs, puzzles and even an egg.
Classic Christmas Cards to Tell Family and Friends
If you want a festive card, then this one is perfect. I also love the text that says, “Due to production time, your Christmas present isn’t expected until August 2018.” I think this is a perfect pregnancy announcement for grandparents-to-be.
This same Etsy card designer also has that card with different text, that says “Merry Christmas, we’re getting you a grandchild.”
I love this Christmas card because stockings are so Christmas. You could use this card to tell extended family that you can’t see in person but want to send something fun their way.
Here is another stocking card that is beautiful with the same idea as another option.
If you are wanting to give a Christmas card that is specific to a person, then try this card. It says “the best Dads get promoted to Grandpa. We’re having a baby.”
If you already have an ultrasound and want to use it, then try this card. I love how it includes the ultrasound as a ornament on the front. It says “hoping all your wishes come true this Christmas ours did. Baby Smith arriving May 2017.” This could be a card that you send out to family and friends or use at Christmas when you visit family.
Unique Christmas Cards to Announce Your Pregnancy
One of my favorite cards is this egg.
It comes in so many cute Christmas themed styles and different wording to choose from such as “Its snow secret anymore……We’re having a baby!”
Another cute idea is to give them a card in the form of a puzzle. This puzzle is extra perfect because it is Christmas themed. It says “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh, what fun it is to say that our baby is on its way! Baby Jeffrey arriving September 2019.”
Scratch off cards are another type of card you can consider. Here is a fun Christmas themed scratch off that will let them know you are expecting.
Another Christmas pregnancy announcement card by a different Etsy designer.
If you like the idea of a scratch off card but want something more sophisticated, then this is your card. I love the gold heart and Christmas flowers.
Christmas Ornaments to Say You’re Expecting
I gave my in-laws a Christmas ornament to tell them we were expecting. I absolutely loved the idea of giving a Christmas ornament because it can be hung on the Christmas tree year after year. Here are some of my favorite ornaments.
Here is a class Christmas ball ornament with cute little baby feet that says “Coming soon 2021”.
This cute snowman ornament can be personalized with names. It is perfect for a family Christmas tree to remember this special occasion.
This Christmas ornament is the same idea and can be personalized with names. If this is your second pregnancy (and your first baby was a girl), then there is a similar ornament for a big sister holding her baby sister that you can find in my big sister pregnancy announcements post.
This beautiful Christmas ornament says “A Christmas Miracle is in the making. Baby Adkins Due March 2019.”
If you want the ornament to be grandparent to be focused, then this Christmas ornament is a winner. It says “only the best parents get promoted to grandparents May 2019.”
Another grandparent Christmas ornament to consider is this one that says “grandparents to be March 2021.” It also has cut baby feet.
If this is the first grandchild, then these wood ornaments are pretty cool.
I had to include this Christmas ball because it is so classic Christmas with its colors. I just love the gold glitter.
I love this Christmas ornament because it uses the ultrasound. This would be such a fun ornament to have over the years and is such an awesome way to make your ultrasound a keepsake.
Here is another option on Etsy for an ultrasound Christmas ornament. The baby onesie ornament is also pretty darn cute too.
While it might not be baby’s first Christmas yet, this ornament is all about Baby Bump’s First Christmas.
Here is a stocking ornament that is also another Christmas classic.
This ornament is subtle but none the less still a great option. It says, “our little present due to be unwrapped December 2020.” There is no better present than a baby on the way.
I had to include this ornament for Disney fans. This Minnie and Mickey pregnancy announcement ornament is adorable and so Disney.
Another option is a Stork theme. I really like this one because it has a Christmas hat on the Stork.
Lastly, here is a great Christmas tree ornament for “soon to be Grandma and Grandpa.” I love these metal ornaments because they are made to last.
Break the news with a Christmas Onesie
Baby onesies are a common pregnancy announcement gift because they are just so cute. Additionally, you can find one with the perfect design and text for just about any occasion. Here are my favorite Christmas onesies that you can use to announce your pregnancy.
In red and green with a big bow, this onesie is perfect. I love the simple message of “Merry Christmas see you in July!”
This onesie has a similar idea but different wording. It says “We’re getting you a grandchild! August 2019.” It would be perfect for grandparents to be.
This one has the same wording but different design and style.
I love the red onesie and the small feet. It says “Merry Christmas! You’re going to be Great Grandparents!” You can change the text out to be for anyone such as grandparents, aunt, uncle etc.
A funny Christmas onesie that if it applies to your parents would be the ultimate way to announce your pregnancy. It says “You know how you always said that you couldn’t wait for me to have my own kids? Payback begins July 2017.”
Another Christmas onesie that is a perfect option for grandparents to be says “Your Christmas present is on layaway until July 2018.”
I love this Christmas onesie because of how creative the wording is. It says “no more silent nights after June 2020.” It is such a classic Christmas song that I love it.
Here is another onesie that is also about silent nights but says “trading silent nights for a bundle of joy. Baby Augusta arriving July 2021.”
Since baby is the Christmas gift, I really like how this onesie is designed like a wrapped gift that says on the tag “ special delivery December 2020”
Another Christmas onesie that takes a Christmas saying and gives it another meaning. It says “the more the merrier August 2020”
Here is a cute onesie that says “Santa isn’t the only one coming to town. July 2020”
Lastly, I had to include this onesie for those of you who love the classic Christmas movie Home Alone.
Gift a Christmas Stocking as a Pregnancy Announcement
I love the idea of sharing your pregnancy with everyone at Christmas with a stocking gift. Here are a few options I have found that would make excellent gifts.
This one comes in a cute box that says “the best gifts don’t come under a tree..” The stocking inside says “Baby Riley”.
This one is also the classic red stocking but says “baby Carter coming soon.”
Another option is this cute stocking that has a baby pattern and says when they are due on the top.
Celebrate your Christmas Pregnancy Announcement with Wine
Christmas is a time to celebrate and what better way to celebrate your announcement than with a bottle of wine? While you can’t drink it, it can be a fun way to announce your pregnancy because you can get some awesome wine labels. Here are my favorite wine labels for Christmas.
This wine label that has beautiful white flowers on it says “Our Christmas present came early this year…. We’re expecting a little miracle. Baby Smith is coming in July.”
If you want one that uses your ultrasound, then this one would be a great option. It says “Jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way… oh what fun it is to say baby Johnson is on the way. Due July 2017. Love Jess and Tris.”
I love the Christmas stripes and style of this wine label. It says “ We’re excited to say a little present is on the way! Baby Smith Due July 2018”
Tell everyone you’re expecting by wearing an awesome Christmas themed bump shirt
One way to break the news is to show up Christmas morning with an awesome Christmas shirt that tells everyone you’re pregnant. Those Christmas morning pictures will be even more special.
My favorite one is this red shirt that says “bumpin around the Christmas tree.” I love the snowflakes and little feet in the design.
If you want to wear one with your other half, these green and red shirts are great. I love how the saying is split on the two shirts. It says Jingle bells, jingle bells on one and baby on the way on the other.
Another awesome green and red shirt pair by the same designer says “Just call me Santa” and “Special Delivery from Santa”.
Who doesn’t love cookies at Christmas? I love this gingerbread shirt that says “The cookies aren’t the only thing in the oven.”
Grab a pair of Santa shirts that says Daddy Claus and Mommy Claus. In smaller text is says “best gift ever” under the little Santa hat.
If you think your mom (or dad) would love a shirt that says their new role, then consider getting them one for Christmas. I love this one because of both the design and the saying “the best moms get promoted to grandma.”
Other Pregnancy Announcement Christmas Gift Ideas
While there are so many different gifts you could give to new grandparents, these are some of my favorite.
I love the idea of giving a picture frame. You can put the ultrasound in the frame. This one is beautiful with white flowers. It says “the only thing better than having you as a parents is our baby having you as grandparents.” It is such a sweet message.
This frame is also one of my favorites because I love the style. It has similar saying: “ only the best parents get promoted to grandparents.” You can put an ultrasound in or leave it blank until they can get a picture of them with baby.
Another option is to get a sign that can be hung or just wrapped. There are a lot of really cool signs you can buy digitally and get printed such as this one.
A classic gift to grandparents to be is a coffee mug. While there are many to pick from, this one is Christmas themed and would be a great Christmas pregnancy announcement.
If you want to tell them by gifting them something they would use, then one option is getting them home decor that is all about their grandchildren. I really love this one.
Another awesome home decor gift is a sign that says “Grandma and Grandpa’s House. Est 2019.” This is especially a great gift if this is the first grandchild.
