If there are presents under the tree and you didn't Instagram them, is it really Christmas? No, it is not, which is why it comes as no surprise that this year — as always — some of my favorite celebrities have shared their holiday festivities on Instagram. Besides, what's not to love about these kinds of posts? They contain all the best parts of the season all at once: Photos of delicious food, holiday fun, and Santa-themed everything. If you're like me and live to see this stuff on your feeds, there's good news: There are plenty of celeb Christmas Instagram posts to gush over this year.
Plus, it's kind of fun to see what happens in their lives when celebs go home for the holidays — especially when their adorable kids and babies are involved. The gifts may be different, the locations may be a little more exotic, but when it all comes down to it, we're all just spending time with our families (or drinking to forget the invasive questions they're asking us) all at the same time.
Here are some of the cutest, most festive Instagram posts celebs have shared with us this year. If these don't get you in the Christmas spirit, I don't know what will!
1. Lauren Conrad's Adorable Cross Stitch
This is officially the cutest family portrait ever, made even better by the fact that every craft Conrad ever attempts always comes out looking flawless.
2. Aziz Ansari Celebrating In India
Is it just me, or are you a little concerned that this Santa is a little creepy, too? Ansari, please protect yourself at all costs. You are a national treasure.
3. Britney Spears Visiting A Gorgeous Church
THAT STAINED GLASS, THOUGH.
4. Kristin Cavallari Matching With Her Baby
Saylor hasn't spent much time on earth yet, but she's already winning Christmas style.
5. Khloe Kardashian & Mason Disick's Christmas Jammies
They're clearly ready to party.
6. Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Hit The Slopes
It isn't often we get a selfie from Jennifer Aniston, so this is basically a gift in itself.
7. Kourtney Kardashian's Massive Stocking Photo
I knew their family was big, but I didn't realize it was this big.
8. Lena Dunham Posting For A Good Cause
Somebody find this girl a home! With a face like that, she'd be an awesome Christmas gift.
9. Neil Patrick Harris' Kids Being Adorable
Seriously, how cute is he?!
10. Mariah Carey With Santa
Two celebrities in one photo. Mind = blown.
11. Josh Duhamel & Fergie's Christmas Card
Merry Christmas, everybody! Kourtney, if your fam wants to add a stocking for me to the list next year, I won't complain.
