Creative Ways to Reveal Baby’s Gender

Finding out the gender of your baby either before birth or at birth are both exciting and it’s a surprise either way.  We have taken the approach of finding out the gender with every other baby.  Our first and third babies were surprises, and number 2 we knew we were having a girl.  Why every other?  I don’t want to know and my husband does, so we take turns.  We are expecting #4, so we plan to find out this time around.  Next week is our scheduled ultrasound, so as long as the baby cooperates we should know the gender by the end of next week.

One of my dear friends just found out yesterday the gender of their first baby and it was so fun to celebrate with her!  I’ve got gender reveals on my mind, so I thought I would round up some creative ways to reveal the baby’s gender.

Put colored confetti in your hands, snap a picture and share.

The ever popular colored icing in the cake.  Cut into the cake to find out if it’s pink or blue.


Make a movie poster announcing the gender.  This is such a creative idea!


Put a little note inside of a plastic egg and give to friends and family.


Hire a professional photographer or ask a friend to take a picture of your family opening up a huge box filled with colored helium filled balloons.

    I hope you do something really fun to announce what you’re having! I’m excited that you guys are finding out 🙂 It feels like forever ago that you had Mallory and we actually knew it was Baby Girl M! Speaking of which, are you giving any initials this time around? 🙂
