Some games are based on old wives tales and test to see if they are true just before the baby's gender is revealed!
Using an Older Child/Sibling for the Big Reveal
Another theme that is becoming a more popular is letting an older sibling make the announcement of their little baby brother or baby sister! It is one of the more cuter Gender Reveals and can be done in a manner of different ways, whether it is with blue or pink paint leaving pink or blue handprints, silly string, wearing matching clothes, holding up a message for social media followers or other inventive ways, a lot of people are choosing to ditch Gender Reveal Parties in favour of this more family orientated approach.
The photo generated from this wonderful moment will also create a lasting keepsake for you and your family when the baby arrives.
Baby Clothes with a Reveal Message
This one is more for social media if you have decided that a Gender Reveal Party is not for you. You can announce your baby's gender with a beautifully coordinated photo of a babygro with a blue or pink related message. Just look online for ideas of how to do it and arrange it. You shouldn't struggle to find them as it is becoming a very popular baby gender reveal method.
A Bath Bomb
Bath bombs have become really popular recently, we can't recall a day that we haven't seen a bath bomb being dropped into the water on someone's Instagram or Facebook story in recent memory. So why not take advantage of the trend with a Gender Reveal bath bomb?
The bath bomb will then turn the water either pink or blue to reveal the baby's gender to the world!
Gender Reveal Piñata
This is one of your more 'out there' methods as a Gender Reveal idea but it can certainly be a lot of fun and is available on the internet (usually Etsy).
Everybody has seen a Piñata before but this is one with a Gender Reveal twist! You, your partner and/or an older sibling hit the Piñata with a stick and it bursts with pink or blue paint and confetti!
Its a bit messy but its certainly a hell of a lot of fun!
Gender Reveal Nails
Another really popular social media revelation recently has been the emergence of Gender Reveal Nails!
Some very talented people have even used their nails to add sparklers and announce the gender using the nails themselves!
For us normies, Gender Reveal UK actually sells press on acrylic Gender Reveal nails to stick on top of your nails and add a bit of glam to your Gender Reveal Party!
Gender Reveal Scratch Cards
This is another Gender Reveal idea that Gender Reveal UK has you covered for! Gender Reveal Scratch Cards. These are becoming a lot more popular because they're a really cheap and cheerful to inject a bit of fun into your Gender Reveal Party!
The idea is a simple one, you purchase enough cards for all the guests and they scratch them at the same time, revealing the baby's gender.
Getting your Pet/s Involved in the Fun
Another popular social media trend when it comes to Gender Reveals is getting your pet/s involved in announcing the gender of the baby. This can be having them stand next to an ultrasound scan of your baby with a little blue or pink bow on it.
Putting blue or pink clothes on your pets (safely) or even having them stand next to a little message for your followers to read.
It is a super cute way of revealing your baby's gender and never ceases to amaze!
Blowing Glitter from your Hands
Its all well and good getting a confetti cannon or smoke cannon, but sometimes simple is best and this is one of the simplest gender reveal ideas you can do but it is so effective.
You and your partner hold pink or blue glitter in your hands and once ready open your fist and blow it either into the air or directly at the camera. You could even get creative with filters on your social media and have the coloured glitter on a background of black and white to really make a statement.
Gender Reveal E-Cards
Some people aren't a big fan of social media and haven't got the time to have a Gender Reveal Party, we respect that and have a great idea for you to announce your baby's gender to your family and friends in a classy way.
All you need to do is create an online e-card using a number of websites that allow that sort of thing and send it over to them via email.
Then you can ensure that everybody you love gets the message and can share your exciting news in a subtle and toned down way!
Painted Handprints on your Baby Bump
Another cute way of doing a Gender Reveal is having your partner dip their hands in blue or pink paint and place their hands on your baby bump.
When they pull their hands away everybody on social media or at your Gender Reveal Party (depending on which you decided to do) will then be able to see the baby's gender!
The white t-shirt will also make a great keepsake for the expectant parents and could even frame it for the baby's nursery.
Gender Reveal Cocktails or Mocktails
If you're having a Gender Reveal Party then for a lot of people that means drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic!
Some people have, very smartly, incorporated this into their Gender Reveal Parties by serving either pink lemonade or blue hawaiian punch in a clever little way of revealing the baby's sex to the world.
It also makes for some fantastic pics on social media of everyone with a blue or pink drink in their hand having lots of fun at the party.
Just a shame that the expectant mother can't join in with the alcoholic festivities! I'm sure someone will be kind enough to make her a tasty little mocktail!
