In recent years, gender reveal parties have become extremely popular due to social media. Having a party to announce the gender of the bundle of joy growing inside of you is a fun way to bring family and friends together to celebrate. There’s something exciting about shouting to the rooftops the gender of the new life you’re bringing into the world. If you’re looking for a unique gender reveal idea for your big announcement, look no further!
We’re keeping our first idea simple for our budget-friendly mommies. An umbrella with hidden confetti is an excellent option. Typically, new parents love to pop a balloon with confetti or use colored balloons hidden in a box, but we see this everywhere on social media. Make your gender reveal unique with the umbrella. Hold the umbrella over your head and open it to see what color comes raining down on you!
Kicking, Throwing, or Hitting a Ball
Kicking, throwing, or hitting a ball is something we’ve all seen before, but it’s still a great option because there are several ways you could do it. If your family is into one particular sport, you could use that as the base for your gender reveal. For example, if your family loves basketball, fill a plastic ball with powder and let your partner dunk it through a hoop so that it explodes with the announcement. You can use this idea for baseballs, soccer balls, footballs, etc.
Taking our ideas to the more extravagant end of the spectrum, why not use a helicopter for a gender reveal? When this is the only or last pregnancy you plan on having, it calls for a bigger celebration. You may also just love a big and bold announcement. Make the most of your helicopter gender reveal by keeping this a secret from your guests so that it’s even more of a surprise!
Did you like the helicopter idea but can’t find it available near you? A firework show is just as thrilling and something you can do at night. You can plan a whole evening of celebration, then end the night with a show everyone will enjoy and love. However, it’s important to ensure it’s legal to shoot off your own fireworks.
Lightsabers and Star Wars
This last gender reveal idea for your big announcement is for Star Wars lovers. This idea also includes showing the reveal at night. When you have an affinity for Luke Skywalker and company, this lightsaber gender reveal is perfect. Have the lightsabers in the correct color, and ask your guests to turn them on simultaneously for a luminescent reveal!
No matter what gender your baby is and what idea you choose, your reveal party will be a hit! While your baby’s introduction to the world is months away, start celebrating their life now with a reveal party. Which one of our ideas could you see yourself using?
