December 1st has come and gone, and soon Christmas Day will be upon us, so it’s time to add thinking of Christmas morning captions for Instagram to that long to-do list!

Fear not – because you don’t have to do all the thinking yourself – we’ve created a full list of Christmas morning caption ideas to help you out.


Perfect Christmas morning captions for Instagram over the holiday season:



Anticipating Christmas Captions:

  • Time for the big show!
  • Breakfast is ready — now the question is, will anyone settle down long enough to eat it? #toystoystoys
  • Trying to catch everyone for a sweet family moment; if I do it while their new devices are still charging, I might stand a chance
  • This is their “hurry up, Mom, we just want to play our toys” pose
  • I could’ve sworn it was Christmas morning, but it looks more like a Mardi Gras parade went through the living room
  • One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day
  • OK, but first presents


Family Picture Christmas Captions:

  • Happy holidays from all of Santa’s elves!
  • Getting everyone in the photo was tougher than trying to put wrapping paper on a bicycle, but we did it!
  • We’re just a bunch of candy canes — sweet and slightly twisted
  • “It was so easy to fit everyone in the group picture”….said no one ever
  • And to think, Timehop and Facebook are going to remind us of this picture for the rest of our lives
  • Instead of listing everyone in this photo, let’s just call it, “The Naughty List”
  • We woke up like this… at 3 a.m., thanks to a couple of over-excited children

Food Christmas Captions:

  • Looks like someone’s had a little too much eggnog
  • Once I add a gingerbread hot tub and a peppermint bath bomb, my gingerbread house of dreams is complete
  • When they say “visions of sugar plums,” is this what they mean?
  • Whoever said making a house out of cookies was a good idea is probably the same guy who thinks it’s easy to put together IKEA furniture #gingerbreadfail
  • Are visions of sugarplums dancing in my head? If by “sugarplums,” you mean toy wrapping and stocking filling and breakfast prepping…then yes
  • Hopefully, Santa didn’t go Paleo this year #cookiesarecarbs
  • One more cookie and I swear I’ll fit in the Santa costume
  • Making gingerbread houses great again

  • May peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

  • I have always thought of Christmas as a good time; kind, forgiving, generous, pleasant time; a time when men and women seem to open their hearts freely, and so I say, God bless Christmas!
  • Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
  • Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
  • It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
  • Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
