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, we have 27 creative ones for you to try. 

There are tons of gender reveal ideas that will make your party special. Not only do you have to think about decorations, a cake, food and desserts, but you have to decide on how you are going to do the highly anticipated baby reveal for your friends and family.

What is 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! There are so many gender reveal ideas out there and we love how creative people can get with them. It makes it more exciting for everyone involved.

Great reasons you should have a gender reveal party

While it’s certainly a “newer” 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 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 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 gender reveal ideas to make your “REVEAL” fun and unique! Here are a few gender reveal ideas for your party:

  • Confetti Balloon – Have a large black balloon filled with either blue or pink confetti. When it’s time for the “big reveal” mom- or dad-to-be will pop the balloon to reveal a boy or girl!
  • Gender Reveal Box – Decorate a large box and fill it with pink or blue balloons. When it’s time, open the box to see if blue or pink balloons will pop out.
  • Gender Reveal Cake, Cupcake or Cake Pops – Fill a cake, cupcake or cake pops with blue or pink icing inside and have the parents-to-be cut into/take a bite to reveal the gender.
  • “Pinata” Cookies – Onesie cookies filled with either blue or pink candies inside.
  • Color Smoke Powder Cannon – Have a unique reveal with these Smoke Powder Cannons. What a fun way to reveal the big news!
  • Silly String – Guests spray the parents-to-be with silly string in pink or blue.
  • Pinata – Another great reveal idea is a pinata.
  • Scratch Off Card: The scratch off card is a fun way to reveal the sex of your baby. It’s like scratching off a lottery ticket …. OH the anticipation!
