27 Creative Gender Reveal Party Ideas

Finding out the gender of your baby is a BIG DEAL! It’s so big that it definitely calls for a party! Because gender reveal parties have only been celebrated recently, there are a lot of people who aren’t yet in the know. If you’re looking for unique and creative gender reveal party ideas, here are 27 ideas for you to try. 

What’s a gender reveal party?

A gender reveal party is an event where expecting parents get together with their friends and loved ones to celebrate and, of course, reveal the gender of their soon-to-be-born child. Gender reveal parties are becoming quite the trend. Why? Because they’re pretty exciting and so much fun!

Great reasons why you should have a gender reveal party

While it’s certainly a new trend, there are, in fact, plenty of excellent reasons why you should consider having a gender reveal party.

  • It’s an important milestone in your life as a soon-to-be parent. And every milestone should be celebrated. Don’t you agree?
  • It’s way better than just sending an “It’s a girl!” text to all the people you know. Plus, you get to invite your friends whether they’re single or not. Win-win!
  • It’s a good way to enjoy the company of friends and loved ones. Once the baby arrives, you’ll soon be responsible for taking care of your precious, tiny human which means that you’ll be too busy to socialize.
  • It’s a momentous and exciting family occasion that you can look back on when the kids are grown – so don’t forget to take plenty of photos!

Do guests need to bring a gift?

Unlike with baby showers, there’s no need to bring gifts for the baby at gender reveal parties. However, if guests don’t want to turn up empty-handed, they can bring a gift for the mom-to-be.

Gender reveal party ideas

Hosting a gender reveal? Aside from getting your friends and family into the fun by having everyone choose team blue or team pink (and by wearing those colors on the day of the party), there are a ton of ideas to make your reveal party unique.
