10 Creative Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy at Christmas

10 Creative Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy at ChristmasChristmas is less than two weeks away and I am still trying to mark off all the gifts for people I love left on my to-do list.

Christmas and the whole holiday season are always full of so much fun. Getting together with family is what it’s all about. Seeing the love in the air as we all spend time together is refreshing.

Christmas is also a time where a lot of expecting parents love to share the news with their family that, well, their family is expanding! It’s perfect because you have all your loved ones in the same area, there is already love and fun in the air, and being the person to give the perfect gift is always the best.

If you’re expecting this year and hoping to share the news with the whole family at once, here are some creative ways that you can let them all know their family is about to get a little bigger.
