You no longer need to find out the gender of your baby in a dark room with a stranger witnessing your reaction! A gender reveal party, photoshoot, or even just a gender reveal between your husband and yourself can be a really fun way to not just announce the gender of your new baby but also find out the gender of your baby!

Gender Reveal Ideas






One of the first ways we saw gender reveal parties making a rise is through the idea of a cake cutting. But the options of desserts for gender reveal are really endless! Cake is beautiful because it can be big and feed a big group or smaller. Plus it offers a really fun level of anticipation to the experience for everyone watching you and your hubby cut the cake.

Cookies are a fun way for everyone to dig in and find out at the same time! Super fun for both small and large groups. The best thing about cookies is that they are interactive with your guests making them feel a part of your special announcement.

Another great way to include everyone is cupcakes! You choose what your baby is craving but either way your family and friends will love to be a part of the surprise!

2. Smoke



These colorful smoke fountains are fun and something that can be done with just you and your significant other in the setting of a fun photoshoot or in the setting of a party. We did a photoshoot and then shared the photo with all of our family at the same time! That way we still had an intimate moment to share with just my husband and I but also we had a fun way to share with our family.

Are you or your spouse an avid golfer? Then this is the reveal for you! Check out this smoke option where you hit the golf ball and it breaks with pink or blue!!!

These also come in options to shoot for the hunter, or a baseball for the baseball fan!



3. Balloons



Gather all your loved ones around for the big, much anticipated moment! This black 36″ Balloon can be filled with pink or blue confetti and then popped for the big moment!



Another fun way to use balloons is to fill a box with pink or blue balloons so when the box is opened pink or blue comes flying out! (Don’t forget these balloons need helium!!)
