Ideas for a Make-Ahead Christmas Dinner for New Parents?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: My friend and her husband are expecting their first child on Christmas Eve and so will not be celebrating the holiday with their family this year. I’ve offered to make Christmas dinner for them, but I’m Jewish so I’m not totally sure what to make. Any suggestions?
