9 Christmas Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

If you’re breaking the news this Christmas, have no fear, our Pregnancy Christmas Announcement Ideas are here!! (Que super hero theme song.)

Figure out Your Pregnancy Announcement Style

The first step is to figure out your announcement style. Do you want to see if people will notice at the family Christmas party or do you want to give something special to the grandparents-to-be? Deciding how you want to tell your family you’re expecting is the first step.

Once you’ve determined your style, you can then take a look at ideas others have pulled off gloriously. Or, if you have no idea what to do, the following ideas will help you get your game plan in place.

Look at What Others Have Done

Go as a present.

If you’re telling the whole family all at once, why not wrap a cute bow around it and make a little DIY christmas gift tag.

Give Grandma and Grandpa a countdown frame with a copy of the ultrasound inside.

Make a space on the mantle for baby.

Let the elf spill the beans.

Include baby on the Christmas card.

And the Christmas ornament.

Give grandma and grandpa something to open to make the pregnancy announcement – and a little keepsakes. You can find these on Etsy here.

Let your family members open a present that includes a custom piece of “We’re expecting” clothing.

Wear a matching set to the family Christmas party and see how long it takes someone to figure it out.

There are so many options for telling your family you’re expecting this Christmas season. We are constantly adding new ideas to our Christmas Pregnancy Announcement Ideas board on Pinterest.

Announcing to your husband is one of many announcements you’ll have to make. This is one I hope you take the time to enjoy. As for me, I was in such shock about #4 that I literally called him at work gasping and he showed up at home thinking I was dying.



Hello Dad.

First comes love.

As if this saying isn’t timeless enough. Incorporate it into your pregnancy announcement plans and rock away.


Chalk bumps.

Should we tell this that this is the most adorbs way to use a chalk wall, like ever?

They could keep using this wall as the pregnancy progresses and as baby grows.


Books A Million.
If you’re just going to put it out there, why not…


The Tricycle.

My husband would have loved to have done this when we announced. So simple and sweet. Have we mentioned timeless? Smack this on a photo canvas for forever.

Le sigh.


Movie poster.

He thought it was all fun and games.

Okay, so maybe it’s been used a few times, but it’s simple and cute and who doesn’t like Prego smeared all over their pasta?
