The Belly Kiss Photo Card:  When Daddy is kneeling and kissing Mommy’s pregnant belly the message is clear.  This is an excellent way to share the happy news with those on your list this year.  Add a small note of how your holiday gift is due later the next year, etc. for personal effect.


No More Silent Nights Card:  Grab a chalkboard and write the message, “Trading Silent Night For A Bundle Of Joy” on it.  Have the happy couple hold the sign up and use that image as a great photo card to send to friends and family.

  1. Cute ideas! I so wanted to announce at Christmas last year but we weren’t at 12 weeks yet. I waited until Valentine’s Day and incorporated a heart theme into my announcement photos.

    These are just cute pregnancy announcement ideas. I think the reserved stocking, the baby booties and the trading in a silent night for a bundle of joy are my favourites 🙂

  3. These are all cute Christmas cards/ pregnancy announcements. I love the one with the ultrasound picture. Thanks for sharing.
