The only thing cuter than a baby is a baby wearing a festive outfit. And with the possible exception of Halloween, Christmas is the holiday that has a variety of clothing options, from Santa suits to velvet dresses, than any other. So while you deck the halls in your favorite ugly sweater, don’t miss your chance to deck your kid out in our favorite baby Christmas outfits — at the very least, do it for the grandparents. Besides, your kid will only be a baby for so long, so why the hell not dress them up as a wriggly elf or santa? You’ll be glad you have the pictures and the memories to look back during the teenage years when you’re begging them to not wear sweatpants at Christmas Eve dinner.
