125 Christmas Instagram Captions Even Scrooge Would Love

Ah, Christmastime, the most wonderful time of the year. The holiday season means awaiting the season’s first snowfall, decorating cookies, family bonding, and resisting the urge to rip open your pile of presents under the tree. Oh, and of course, documenting it all on Instagram. And of course, all those snowy, festive pics and Reels will require a mix of cute and clever Christmas captions for Instagram.

Captioning a photo dump or selfie is already a tough task, but add in the Christmas factor, and it can feel like you’re playing the Instagram caption game on hard mode. Whether you’re captioning a holiday OOTD, flicks from a Christmas party, or the glistening, snow-covered trees on your block (has nature always been this beautiful? *tear*), a good Christmas caption contains a dash of corniness, a dollop of heartfelt emotions, and a sprinkle of humor.

It can be hard, but challenge yourself to forego the emoji caption (snowflake and Christmas tree emojis, we’re looking at you) and instead use this roundup of the best Christmas captions to elevate your Xmas photo dump on Instagram this December. Documenting a flirty moment under the mistletoe? We've got the right words on lock. Photo dumping a funny and lighthearted series of Christmas events (#makeInstagramcasualagain)? Tie it all together with an equally funny caption, or a quote from our fave Christmas movies and songs. Or, if you want to play up your Christmas aesthetic, look to our best wintry captions for a seasonal sleigh on the 'gram.
