One of the most exciting things about being pregnant (besides the whole baby part, you know) is getting to share your news with those closest to you.
Today, after scouring through hundreds of pregnancy announcement cookies, I’ve put together a collection of my favorite, pretty, modern and yes – minimalist – cookie sets to inspire you.
I hope you love them as much as I do.
Pregnancy Announcement Cookie Inspiration
As you’re spending time thinking about how to tell your friends and family, or which type of theme you’d like your pregnancy announcement cookies to have, you may want to check out this super helpful list that I put together of classic baby phrases – 115+ Ridiculously Sweet Baby Shower Cake Sayings To Celebrate Baby.
Although I put the list together with phrases aimed at celebrating baby at a baby shower, many of them would totally work with a pregnancy announcement, too.
For example, one of the phrases on the list – table for 3 – could be super cute and relevant for a foodie couple who want to announce their pregnancy to family or friends. Classic red checkered table cloth, little reservation sign on the table… a few cookies that are just the number three – I think it would really work.

The ones on these cookies say big sis, moms and their littles will get matching sets with mama and the child’s names on it, so you could get creative with that idea.
