16 Celeb Family Photos That Are Basically the Best Holiday Cards Ever


Some gifts come in boxes. Some gifts come in bags. Some gifts come with ribbons or tags. But if there's one thing we've learned over the past few years, it's that the best gifts don't come wrapped at all -- they come on Instagram, and they come in the form of holiday photos from the best and cutest celebrity families. And we collect them like treasures every year.

Here are our fave celebrity holiday "cards" from 2016 -- the seasonal spirit is out of control in all these families, and we love it. 

  • Kanye West & Kim Kardashian


    Though the Kardashian family didn't do a big, full-family card like they normally do, we got a good one from the Kardashian-Wests (Kanye, Kim, North, and Saint) to hold us over until next year. Kim's been taking a social media hiatus since she was robbed a few months ago, so we're extra excited to see her back for this this one. On top of that, Saint West sightings are still pretty rare, so yeah. We're excited.

  • Kevin & Danielle Jonas


    Merry Christmas from the jonas family!

    A photo posted by Kevin Jonas (@kevinjonas) on

    Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle, have two adorable daughters (Alena, 2, and Valentina, 2 months) and a knack for taking ridiculously perfect photos -- look at those faces! It's too much.

  • Chrissy Teigen & John Legend


    Merry Christmas!

    A photo posted by John Legend (@johnlegend) on

    Of couuuurse Chrissy Teigen and John Legend would do something adorable for the holidays, and of course that involved baby Luna dressing up as Santa. It's her first Christmas, so it's an extra special one -- and their precious family photo captures that all really nicely.

  • Barack & Michelle Obama


    This photo of Barack, Michelle, Malia, and Sasha is from a state dinner back in March, and it's the one they chose to put on the front of the official White House holiday card. It's also actual perfection. The Obamas have all grown so much over the past eight years, and even just looking at their family photo is enough to make us sad about having to say goodbye.

  • Naomi Watts


    Happy holidays everyone!! #hohoho #tistheseason #dab #naughtyandnice 🌲🍾😛👻❄️🎉 🎁

    A photo posted by Naomi Watts (@naomiwatts) on

    Is that a dabbing pun we spot? Clearly Naomi Watts is a Cool Mom, and her kids -- Sasha, 9, and Samuel Kai, 8 -- are obviously lucky to have her. This is the first holiday season the family has had to go through since Naomi split from Liev Schreiber (they announced the end of their 11-year relationship in September), but the two said they were going to co-parent their sons, and those look like two happy boys. Clearly, they're making it work.

  • Tamera Mowry & Adam Housley


    Merry Christmas from the Housleys to you! 🎄

    A photo posted by tameramowrytwo (@tameramowrytwo) on

    It's like Tamera Mowry and Adam Housley are models or actors or professionally good-looking people or something, right? And their kids, Aden, 4, and  Ariah, 1, clearly got all the good genes. This fam is literally picture-perfect. Ugh!! 

  • Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock


    Merry Christmas from the Blackstocks 🎅🎅🎅 #Santa #Iknowhim

    A photo posted by Kelly Clarkson (@kellyclarkson) on

    This will be the first holiday season Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, spend as a six-person family -- their daughter, River, is 2, but their son, Remy, was born in April of this year. (Brandon also has two children, Savannah and Seth, from a previous marriage.) Well, they certainly know how to make a cute Christmas card. Look at all the joy in those adorable faces!

  • Fergie & Josh Duhamel


    Santa baby 🎅🏻🎅🏻😂😂

    A photo posted by Fergie (@fergie) on

    Fergie, Josh Duhamel, their 3-year-old son, Axl, and Santa (of course) posed for this amazing snap a few days ago. This is a fam that knows how to have fun and we love that this photo captures that. Also, that look in Axl's eyes as he looks at his dad -- swooooooon.

  • Steph & Ayesha Curry


    Merry Christmas y'all. Enjoy your family time and Don't forget the reason for the season! 🙏🏽

    A photo posted by Wardell Curry (@stephencurry30) on

    Every time we see photos of the Curry family (Steph, Ayesha, and their 4- and 1–year-old daughters Riley and Ryan) we're reminded how ridiculously perfect they are. And every time we love it more. This family Christmas photo is quite possibly their most perfect yet.

  • Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott


    From my family to yours, Merry Christmas!!! xoxo T Photo by @shanibarelphoto

    A photo posted by Tori Spelling (@torispelling) on

    Man, if we could get our family photos to color coordinate as well as the Spelling-McDermott family does, we'd be golden. Tori, her husband, Dean, and their kids, Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5, and Finn, 4, look incredible here, and we love it.

  • Alyssa Milano


    Merry Christmas from our family to yours.

    A photo posted by Alyssa Milano (@milano_alyssa) on

    Milo, 5, and Elizabella, 2, are the two precious kids of Alyssa Milano and Dave Bugliari, and they look like perfect little dolls in the holiday pic Alyssa posted on Instagram. We don't know how she convinced them to stand in buckets long enough to take this photo, but it was definitely worth it.

  • Britney Spears


    Right before the boys went to their play last week ☃️☃️☃️ #tbt

    A photo posted by Britney Spears (@britneyspears) on

    We'll be the first to admit we have a major weakness for matching plaid outfits, so of course we're suckers for this photo of Britney Spears's boys, Sean, 11, and Jayden, 10. They're definitely goofballs (and it's pretty clear Brit encourages that), but we love it. Every family needs a little fun around the holidays.

  • Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudekis


    Happy Holidays from our family to yours. 🎄 #chancethemotherfuckingrapper

    A photo posted by Olivia Wilde (@oliviawilde) on

    We don't know if the Wilde-Sudeikis family's holiday cards actually had Chance the Rapper in them, but if they did (like this photo suggests?), whoever got one should probably put it on an altar somewhere. Even without Chance and their new baby Daisy, Olivia, Jason, and 2-year-old Otis are a pretty good-looking crew.

  • Molly Sims & Scott Stuber


    I ❤ our holiday cards! #Stuberpartyof4 (soon to be 5!!!) More today on the blog {link in bio}

    A photo posted by Molly Sims (@mollybsims) on

    The amount of joy in the faces of Molly Sims and Scott Stuber's kids, Brooks and Scarlett, is amazing and insane. These two beauties are 4 and 1 respectively and they have a baby sibling on the way -- Molly is pregnant with kiddo number three, and we can't wait to see him or her in next year's photo.

  • Behati Prinsloo (& Adam Levine)


    Best Christmas 🎄⛄️🍼💋

    A photo posted by Behati Prinsloo Levine (@behatiprinsloo) on

    It's super sad that Adam Levine isn't in Behati Prinsloo's holiday photo, and even sadder that we can't see baby Dusty Rose's face. But Behati Prinsloo's photos is pretty stinkin' cute anyway, and we're glad we got to see it.

  • Kevin & Eniko Hart


    The "Harts" are in the Holiday spirit.... #HappyHolidays #Harts #LiveLoveLaugh

    A photo posted by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on

    Kevin Hart married Eniko Parrish (now Eniko Hart) this year, so this is their first holiday photo as a family. Aaaand it's perfect -- 11-year-old Heaven and 8-year-old Hendrix are picture-perfect in their heart (Hart?) sweaters and Santa hats, and we love it.
