23 Christmas Themed Pregnancy Announcement Ideas
Ho, Ho, Who’s Pregnant?
‘Tis the season for baby announcements! If you’re expecting this holiday season, consider an announcement that’s merry and bright! Get your red, green, and holly on with these fun ideas for the perfect pregnancy announcement.
This handmade ornament will be sure to brighten your parents’ or in-laws’ Christmas. It’s a fun way to spread the news and help deck the halls. This one is from violetamcreations. You can order one, or make your own. All you need is a wooden disc, a ribbon and some acrylic paint. Fun!
These cute outfits are from bobos_printshop. You could give one to your husband to inform him of his dad-to-be status and/or you could take pictures in them to tell family and friends. You could mail the onesie to a distant relative to give them a big surprise, or simply snap a pic in them and post it to Instagram. The possibilities are endless!
This Present Came Early
This darling arrangement is quite simple. User housetohomeatno.45 created the announcement on a letter board with gold letters and an ultrasound picture. It is surrounded by a bit of Christmas tree, some wrapped presents, a few handmade Santa-themed baby items, and a custom onesie. I especially like the candy canes in the shape of a heart!
Pregnancy websites often compare your baby’s size to various fruits as the weeks go by. This announcement by user shwong harnesses that spirit. The happy couple posed on the beach in Santa hats and proclaimed “extra cheer this year.” Then they overlaid the image with an avocado split to show who was going to grow! Very creative!
Kiss the Girl
This couple donned their striped jammies and grabbed their toddler. They hoisted her up for a sweet kiss. Then mama showed her sonogram pic! Congrats, catsjwaters, your announcement is inspiring. And we love the candy-cane-striped PJs with green cuffs. Nice work!
Wrap it in a Wreath
Another variation using a message board, this announcement makes use of an ultrasound picture and baby’s details. Then it’s laid on top of a rustic-looking wreath that includes pine cones, strands of berries, and eucalyptus leaves. There’s also a tiny pair of baby shoes in the corner and a tiny red stocking. It’s well-staged and well photographed. Try it yourself!
Our Wish Came True
This couple donned their holiday finery and set up a plaid seat in the snow. A message board at their feet reads “We asked Santa and our wish came true. Mama’s due with baby #1 and baby #2,” followed by their due date. They also constructed a sign announcing that it’s twins! You could easily adapt this idea for singletons, altering the poem and changing the banner.
The More the Merrier
Yet another announcement featuring a message board, and another idea for announcing twins! User home.and.hunger used a white furry background, then decorated with glorious gold ornaments all around. The ultrasound of two adorable babies completes the look.
These detailed and intricate cookies come courtesy of madalynscustomcookies in New York. Carefully decorated with royal icing, these sugar cookies proclaim “Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, Grandpa,” and “Great Grandma.” This one box of cookies will serve to announce your upcoming baby to your whole family! There are also baby feet, sprigs of holly, and a message proclaiming, “One more reason to be merry.” These treats seem merry indeed!
Make it Easy on Mama
If you’re not all that crafty, consider purchasing a digital download like this one from verve_line. You get the look of leather moccasins, a wooden rattle, and a thick wreath full of pine cones, with none of the hassles of collecting those items. When you purchase this download, you can change the text to read anything you like, including changing the due date and family name. Then you can post it to social media and send it digitally to anyone you like. You could even print it out. Easy peasy!
Glass Ball Ornament
This idea comes from classybabiestudio. Simply trim your ultrasound and paste it onto another piece of paper with the due date written on it. Then roll it to fit into this store-bought glass ornament. Finish it with a ribbon, and you’re ready to announce your pregnancy in the most Christmasy of ways; an ornament for a Christmas tree!
Simple and Sweet
This one’s nice and simple, and something anyone could manage. You and your husband simply hold an ultrasound in front of a festive holly wreath. This couple did it with nice sweaters on to add to the wintery feel. It’s a simple idea, but the complexity of the wreath gives it beauty. Love it!
Goodbye Silent Nights
This announcement features a less common white message board with the clever phrase, “Our silent nights end” followed by the due date. The board is dressed in a furry white hat and laid on a flocked Christmas tree studded with silver and gold ornaments and white poinsettias. Stunning!
Flat and Fancy
Here’s an ornament you can order instead of make. It’s customizable and available from calligra_bri_designs. We love the clear glassy look and the evenness of the fancy handwriting. Very artistic!
Here’s a sign created by chalkshopbyjenna. It’s fully customizable, and she makes all kinds of other signs as well. If you are very talented, you could attempt this sign on your own using paint and a chalkboard. As for me, I’d stick with ordering one, since I don’t have this level of skill.
Candy Cane Babe
This adorable and unique announcement features an ultrasound decorated with a bow. The baby is wearing a Santa hat and clutching a tiny candy cane. How cute! Nice thinking, the_royal_planner! You can use a program such as Photoshop to achieve this look, or you can use a free version, such as GIMP.
If you have other kids, there’s no better way to help them feel involved than to include them in announcing your pregnancy! This sweet board from chalkingitupboards lets the world know that your little guy or gal is about to be a big brother or sister! The shop offers lots of designs for lots of occasions, so check it out!
Elf on the Shelf
If you’re more of a prankster, maybe you’d like the help of the Elf on the Shelf, Santa’s little mischief-maker. This silly announcement uses the famous elf with the message “I’m not the only one late this Xmas” next to a pregnancy test box.
Baby or Cookies?
A little different from all the message boards and Christmas tree ornaments is this announcement featuring shirts by ravelledknits. You and your husband can pose the question, is it a baby bump or just a cookie belly? Dad-to-be hamming it up with cookies completes this announcement.
Announce your little one in style with these glittery globes from b.creative_design. You could also try making them yourself. Mix glue and glitter to coat the inside of glass or plastic ornaments. Decorate the outside with vinyl lettering. You can buy a Cricut (ranging from $180-$400) or you can order the lettering for $3 on Etsy from someone who already has one.
Hung by the Chimney with Care
This darling card, created by ofthefinestkind, can be made with a few supplies. Start with thick white cardstock, textured if possible. Then add a bit of jute. The stockings can be made by free-cutting on sparkly paper, or by using a template. Use a craft punch for the stars and the heart, and your announcement is ready to go!
Break the News
Break the news to your family and friends with these amazing announcement eggs! Available on Etsy, these eggs come in many varieties, including Santa, snowman and a silver or gold present. The recipient will have fun cracking the egg and finding a surprise message inside (along with some glitter). What fun!
Classic Christmas Vibes
Let’s finish this list with this intimate scene of two sisters sitting beneath a lit Christmas tree looking at the ultrasound of their coming sibling. I love the soft glow, and the feeling it gives of cozy December nights. This announcement comes courtesy of debralynnphotography, and has me enchanted.
However you decide to announce your pregnancy, we hope it’s magical!
