16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

Let’s begin with this simple one.

You can make these yourself if you have good baking skills. It is also an excellent way to save some cash.

If you are a kitchen dummy, simply place an order at any local bakery.

Depending on what you’re expecting, ask bakers to write “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” on the little piece of paper that goes inside.

15. Gender Reveal Cake/cookies

Request that the doctor not reveal the child’s gender to you, but rather write it down for you and paste it in an envelope.

Then have a friend take the envelope to the bakery and order a cake or cookies with a blue or pink inside.

When it’s time to serve the treat, everyone will be able to tell which gender your child is. And you as well.

Exciting, isn’t it?

14. Cupcakes

Sweets, sweets. Who can resist them?

Serve cupcakes with visible blue or pink-colored parts at your gender reveal celebration.

You may also make a joke by putting pink glitter on a blue cupcake (or vice versa), requiring your friends to bite it to find out.

The inside of the cupcake should reveal the gender by being colored pink or blue.

13. Drink to that!

It’s a simple but effective way to show your guest whether it’s a girl or a boy.

Make a color-correlated punch or cocktail to match your baby’s gender. Pink or blue punch? I’m in! Sure it will be amusing to everyone.

You can make it with or without alcohol, but hey! It’s a bash! Put a tiny little bit of vodka in there. No one will be upset. Trust me.

12. Guessing Game

Give each guest a piece of paper when they arrive.

The following are the game’s rules:

On one side of the paper, each guest should write their name, and on the other, their thoughts on the gender of the child.

Every paper should be placed in the box.

Open the box somewhere in the middle of the party and take the papers of the people who guessed correctly on one side. Inform them of the results.

To make the game more entertaining, allow those who correctly guessed to write a name suggestion for the child on the board.

11. Scratch-Off Cards

You can make custom scratch-off card, which is where the excitement lies.

Make sure every one of your guests have one.

This is a perfect gender reveal idea for distant relatives or friends—just mail the card and wait for their reaction.

9. Silly String thing

What you’ll need to do is follow the steps below.

Purchase enough Silly String cans for each of your guests. Wrap them in invisible paper so no one can tell which color they are.

The expecting parents should then be in the center of the circle, made of guests. And the stringing can begin! Your buddies will love this game!

Note: Bring some old clothes with you. It’s easier to change than to buy new clothes.

8. ‘Cause baby, you’re a firework

16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

I’m sure you are, hun! However, this song just occurred to me at the moment.

But, yes, there can be fireworks! You can use them to disclose your baby’s gender.

Wait until it’s dark before turning them on! Blue or pink fireworks would be enough to tell everything.

7. Piñata to the rescue!

16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

There is no party like a piñata-included party!

Find a shop that has piñatas, and buy a form that doesn’t indicate a child’s gender. Request pink or blue confetti or candies to be thrown in.

You’ll need a backyard for this. Or you’ll need to clean all night after the party’s over.

6. Confetti Cannons/Balloon perhaps?

16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

If you are lazy and don’t want to look for piñata, you can simply fill a huge balloon with confetti. And pin it when you think it’s time.

The second option is even easier: Get a confetti cannon for everyone.

Of course, the most important thing is the color of the confetti.

Messy, again, we know. Well, not every day is a gender-reveal party day.

5. What about balloons pop game?

Fill one balloon with pink or blue paint and the rest with white before blowing them up. After that, attach them to aboard.

Non-transparent balloons are needed. Also, there should be as many balloons as guests. When they arrive, each person can choose his or her balloon.

Start the game, and see who among your guests at your gender reveal party, would pop the correct one.

4. Balloons again: This time in a box

16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

Another idea on a budget.

Besides your unique gender reveal ideas, we were thinking about your wallet too!

Here’s the deal: Buy pink or blue helium balloons, place them in a big box, and wait for your guests to come.

When the time for reveal comes, open the box and let balloons fly into the sky while revealing the gender of the kiddo.

3. Use Paint gun and have a fun

This is not a cheap option. And it’s only for courageous. Because you’ll need a bath after this. A lots of it, actually.

You’ll need as many pink or blue paint guns as you can get your hands on.

The idea is to equip your friends with them so that they can paint you.

Prepare yourself to be one-colored.

2. Do You have a pet?

16 Unique Gender Reveal Ideas to Celebrate Your Baby's Arrival

Our pets are, without a doubt, our best friends.

Did you know that they could help you reveal the gender of your baby to your friends? What exactly is the idea?

Tell your guests that there will be a hint to the gender of the baby somewhere at the party.

The hint will be your buddy! But only if it’s possible. Tie a pink/blue bow around your dog’s neck, for example.

Your pup will go around walking, playing, and barking as if nothing is up. In the meantime, “My mommy and daddy are expecting a boy/girl!” will write on his bow.

Good boy!
