Gender reveal ideas
It used to be that you’d just give everyone a call or tell them in person, but now more and more expectant couples are coming up with seriously creative ways to tell the world (well, their Facebook pages, at least) that it’s a boy or a girl.
There are all sorts of gender reveal ideas out there, from elaborate projects that would take weeks to set up, to simple options that you can put together and share within the hour, and we’ve rounded up a selection of our favourites to give you all of the inspiration you need to make the moment really special. Whether you want to shout it out with pink or blue balloons, cut a specially coloured cake or cookie, or get the whole family involved in a paint fight, there’s an ingenious gender reveal idea in this collection that you’ll love!
You can choose to keep the gender a surprise and create a clever way for your friends and family to tell you, or wow them all with an announcement of your own - the choice is yours. Some people even throw a whole party around their gender reveals, so everyone can find out and share the excitement at the same time.
So, you’ve got all of the inspiration you need - how will YOU choose to break the happy news?
